Secretly Test Drive Your New WordPress Theme

theme test drive
The Success Space is undergoing a “theme-lift”, but you won’t get to see it until the customization is complete! As you read this, there is a theme behind the scenes that is being customized, tested, and viewed by The Success Space. It is on a “need to see” basis only.

How do we do it? With a unique little plug-in, Theme Test Drive by Vladimir.

How often did you want to updated an existing theme with new colors, header, or reorganize some other elements? Not a problem except for the fact that your blog’s visitors get to see all the changes, and mistakes in action. We’ve all made the mistake of deleting one too many lines of PHP code and totally obliterating the blog! A bit of a turn off, don’t you think?

That is where Theme Test Drive comes in.

The Success Space is using Theme Test Drive right now and we love it! Theme Test Drive WordPress plugin allows you to safely test drive any theme on your blog as administrator, while visitors still see and use the default theme. It is transparent to anyone who is NOT logged in as Administrator. Visitors will never know that you (the Admin) are running a totally different theme for yourself. And that is not all – you can even set the testing theme’s options (if it has them) in the Admin panel while you are test driving the theme.

Hands down, we highly recommend the Theme Test Drive. You can customize your theme and get it working and looking perfects before anyone sees it.

It’s easy to use:

  1. Upload the plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  2. Go to the Plugins page and activate the plugin.
  3. Use the Options page to set the theme you want to test drive.

The Theme Test Drive plugin is free. Go get yours!
