How can I setup a preview theme section?

I am curious the best way to setup theme demos for a WordPress Network. I saw themeswitcher, but I am not sure it will do what I want.

Here is what I would like:

• Setup a subsite with general content and have the ability to assign different themes on it.

• Setup a landing page with thumbnails of each theme

• Setup links to go to the subsite with the theme assigned to it.


am I better off using site cloner and setup a separate subsite for each theme? I kind of like how woothemes has theirs setup:

Anyway, I want to ultimately create live demos of themes we want to offer. I would prefer one subsite with standard content rather than multiple subsites if its possible, but I don’t want menus to reset, etc. etc.

    Hi @maxwebgear,

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    I don't think WooThemes does load same content for different themes. Its basically load that each theme separately within an iframe using AJAX as seen in attached screenshot.

    On WPMU DEV Upfront themes demo we do have separate installs for each site. Thats what I would suggest you to do install themes on separate sites with cloner plugin.

    Hope that helps! Feel free to post a reply if you need further assistance :slight_smile:

    Cheers, Sajid
