Hello to all. I present you just another themes/templates switcher that might be of use the TF authors and to all envato community. Just to let you know, there’s another great item switcher from our colleague author ThemeProvince (link: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/introducing-item-switcher/42612). Btw, great job mate :)
Basically, it removes the TF preview frame and replaces it with this custom item switcher (dry-switcher). You can freely use it, share it, rename it, alter it, toss it… If you can improve it, please do that and share with other authors here so we can all have one nice themes/templates switcher.
When you install it (simple upload), all you need to do is to change links inside sites.xml. Also, in downloadable .zip file you’ll find .PSD with icons, dropdowns, logo, etc so you can easily restyle the switcher.

Download

Source files: http://www.sendspace.com/file/2ksm1k

Demo

For a demo, please view one of my themes/templates (I cannot paste the link. It will be considered as self-promotion and I do not want that)

Install

When you unzip downloaded file (dry-switcher.zip), inside dry-switcher folder you’ll find two more .zip’s.

01. dry-switcher.zip (that’s actually all you’ll need) and

02. psd.zip.

All you need to do is to upload dry-switcher (01.) folder on your server. You will just have to modify this three files: index.php, main.js and sites.xml

In index.php
//If theme-switcher request is not valid, user will be redirected to this address
header('Location: http://demo.ourmodestsiteexample.com/');


In main.js
//Replace "yourdomain" with your own domain
if(/themeforest\.net|yourdomain\.com$/.test(top.location.hostname))


And one more thing that you need to do is to modify sites.xml file, which is used as configuration file for the themes. You’ll find that inside sites.xml file are actually links to my items, please change that as well :)

And that’s it. I hope someone will find this useful.
