For me a walk in the nature always is the best inspiration place. Also traveling to places I never was before. Finding new interesting locations will always help you grow your imagination.

After that architecture is my second choice as inspiration. Clean spaces, different textures for buildings, wood combine with glass, metal,ceramic, and all of that is helping me find new ideas.

From nature and architecture you can also select the best colors combinations and textures for any project.

You don’t need 3.3 for this functionality.
But they announce this will be an option available in WP 3 .3 just a couple of days ago. http://wordpress.org/news/2011/11/wherefore-art-thou-widgets/

I have tested with 3.2 and things didn’t work the way I wanted.

Anyway, thing are going great with the new version, and this is what is important :)

Thanks.

Well, I guess that’s already possible without the need of WP 3 .3 (but with the presence of particular conditions)... if you deactivate a theme and then reactivate it the widgets should be kept in their position.

What I was saying is that if you install a premium theme and use all its widgets and then you activate another theme, you will never be able to use the widgets you were using on the previous theme on the new one.

For my understanding this is not what you meant, unless your goal was to keep widgets when switching themes to try them… otherwise I don’t see any useful usage of this.

I’m still sure about what I say :)

Oh, I think we have understood 2 different things.

Yes you are right and sure about :) “What I was saying is that if you install a premium theme and use all its widgets and then you activate another theme, you will never be able to use the widgets you were using on the previous theme on the new one.”

And yes my goal is to keep widgets when switching themes.

Cheers.

Just downloaded the Wordpress 3.3 beta 4 and tested.

And things seems to be amazing.

I have the default theme installed with his custom widgets and areas. Then I deactivate it, activate a custom premium theme, setup his own widgets in his own areas.

And then activate again the old theme, and all his widgets are keeped. Also reactivating again the premium theme he got his own widgets keeped in his own areas.

PK: It seems that things are working also for premium themes, and custom widgets. You where not sure about this one :P

So my question finally have a solution :) I am so happy I will continue with the work I have done.

Cheers.

In any case, by switching themes, you would lose all the custom widgets packed with the theme you’re deactivating.

This can only work with standard widgets or with the ones added by external plugins.

Parker

Are you sure about that ? Did you test the beta version?

I mean they should build a system to remember also the theme name, and his widgets stored in a database.

If you are true this will not help much because any theme will have his own widgets for sure.

Thanks.

Sure I’m sure… the code for custom widgets is within the theme, so if the theme isn’t installed how would you have those widgets able to be executed?

These new features of WP3 .3 can only take in consideration the basic WP features, not premium ones.

Thanks PK for the explanation.

This ruins all my plans with the theme I just wanted to release :) I didn’t think that detail from the beginning with loosing a theme widgets when activating another.

I must think for a new strategy.

Cheers.

Thanks for the link revaxarts.

Finally WP will be updated with that :) , and I hope it will be the “Indefinitely” option available.

Hi,

I have looked around for a solution to keep widgets on a wordpress theme when switching to another theme.

Did someone found any solution to do that? Other than manually database backup, witch seems to be the only solution found by now.

Widgets are great to use in WP themes, are almost 100% necessary this days. But the fact that you will loose all the widgets setup on a theme when switching to another is disappointing :(

Thanks.

Hello,

Well, I know a lot of people don’t know about the “Edit image” button under the “Media” Wordpress admin tab, that is included in the wordpress instalation. The button is right under the image thumb that you will upload in Media section.

There is an actual image editor, that works like a plugin. You can also read THIS To see what you can do with an image (Scale Image, Image Crop, Crop Aspect Ratio, Crop Selection….)

Hope this will help.

Regards.
