Switch Theme allows WordPress Network Administrators to switch all the themes on their WordPress installation to a different theme in only a few clicks.
This is particularly useful if you have large network of blogs which you wish to switch to a new version of your theme.
Switch Theme is only for use with WordPress installations with multisite enabled, it will not work on standalone installations or WordPress MU.
You will find the
Switch Themepanel under the
Themesmenu in the WordPress Network Admin.
From this panel you can choose from a list of themes and switch your entire network to that theme.
Why can’t I see Switch Theme in the list of plugins?
Switch Theme is only compatible with installations of WordPress which have multisite enabled, so it will only appear under the Plugins list in Network Admin and not the Plugins list in the Site Admin.
How do I get to Switch Theme after I activate?
- There are two easy ways, first is to click
Switch Themeunder the now activated plugin in the Plugins list.
- Go to the
Themesmenu and click
What do I do?
Once you’ve made it to the Switch Theme panel choose the desired new theme and click
Switch, be warned this can take some time, and you cannot undo this change once you press
How can I get more help?
I am a pretty busy person but I will do my best to answer questions, so long as they aren’t plain obvious, just email me via my website.
