Thanks for the great tips here. I have a question regarding the theme switcher plugin. I have page where I have thumbnails of various free themes I am offering. I have the link set up as you suggest above in the format example.com/?wptheme=WordPress+Classic. The demo preview works fine in a new page however it drops a cookie so that the theme of the whole site is changed to the previously viewed demo. How do I stop that from happening? The way you have Themelab set up is exactly what I want. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Barry

I think I know the problem is though. Try example.com/?wptheme=WordPress+Classic

Since that’s the full name of the theme.

I used the http://www.mydomain.com/?wptheme=classic (which is installed) and it just refreshed the page…

I must be missing something!

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare ts_set_theme_cookie() (previously declared in /homepages/16/d261329322/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/theme-switcher-reloaded/theme-switcher-reloaded.php:28) in /homepages/16/d261329322/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/theme-switcher.php on line 30

Just getting into the Theme game and needed to know how to do this. Question: does this plugin allow you to direct link a theme as well?

Thanks in advance,

Jonathan
