Hi there, Today I created a file switcher that might be of use the envato community. Basically it removes the preview frame automatically. Then replaces it with a custom item switcher.

Demo

For a demo view one of my items (i cant post links here sorry).

Download

Here is the source code: http://labs.burntfeathers.com/themeselector/themeselector.zip

Installation (Very Easy)

1. Firstly unzip and place the folder on your server. Place it in a directory like this: http://themes.yoursite.com/ – Though make sure its a new directory with nothing else in so you can use the root of the folder as the url.

2. Open index.php and you will see a php array called $theme_array. You dont have to know php. For every item you create a new array like below:


$theme_array = array (

array ("id" => "adventure",
       "url" => "http://labs.burntfeathers.com/adventure",
       "themeforest" => "http://themeforest.net/item/adventure-a-unique-photography-wordpress-theme/155571" 
      ),
array ("id" => "attique",
       "url" => "http://labs.burntfeathers.com/attique",
       "themeforest" => "http://themeforest.net/item/attique-a-stylish-multi-purpose-wordpress-theme/168724" 
      )

);

3. In your item settings (Click Edit on your item page) set the preview url to this:

http://themes.yoursite.com/redirect.php?theme=yourthemename

So if you defined the theme in the php array $themearray as “adventure” then replace yourthemename above with adventure.

4. Thats it, easy peasy :D

Attribution

One more thing this is open source so you can change the logo, marry it or whatever. No attribution required.

Hope you find this useful.

;)

I don’t get it can you post a screenshot? I looked at your items but what is the difference?

FF 3 .0.16 I know I know. Gonna check it with my chrome then. OK I see it on a TF item of yours. But can it be used so that there is no frame because of the deeplinking of flash templates? That’s the main reason people don’t like the frame at all. Anyway, nice solution.

This is awesome Phoenix and thanks for sharing it! I don’t think I’ll be using it myself but I’m sure a lot of authors will find it useful and be using it in the near future.
