I’m sure most of you blog designers know this, but some may not, so check this out:

  1. Install ThemeSwitcher on a wordpress installation and activate it.
  2. Upload ALL of your TemplateForest themes to this installation.
  3. Then, just simply go to the special theme switcher URL to set that session’s theme: Here’s BlueBlog and CleanBlog

Notice they go to the same wordpress installation? This theme is only set for that user’s session, so you can set all of your Live Previews to this link and not have to install multiple Wordpress installations.

And here’s the URL string for it:
http://www.urltoyourblog.com/index.php?wptheme=ThemeTitle

Again, I’m sure most of you Wordpressers know this, but I want to put it out there to make things easier for those that don’t :)

Thanks for the tip. I knew this could be done but didn’t really it was quite so easy!

I just recently installed Wordpress locally in order to work on themes. This will be nice when they are up and running.

This is great, but the content is always going to be the same, right? So if you wanted custom content on one theme (specific images, text, custom fields, thumbnails), and completely different content on another theme, this wouldn’t switch the content… am I right?

Wordpress 3 integrates MU so then will be really possible to have multiple theme previews on same installation with different content.
