How to: demo WordPress themes with dummy content on my blog?

  • # June 13, 2011 at 11:31 pm

    Hey everyone, I’ve been scouring the internet for the last two days and I cannot find what I am looking for, so I shall try here.

    I am building a portfolio theme for my personal blog, and I have a designated page to show my previous works/projects for potential employers. On this page, I would LOVE to be able to let users preview themes I have created, and this is where the problem lies. I do not have any idea how to do this.

    A general example of what I would like: http://www.elegantthemes.com/gallery/

    One major difference between what I want and that example: the demos need to use dummy content to fill the content areas. I’ve seen it before, but I can’t remember where, which is too bad because it is EXACTLY what I need.

    So, is this done with a plugin? Subdomain? Etc, etc?

    I know using multiple WP installs would be a massive waste of time and space, but I don’t know how otherwise.

    Someone, anyone, please help!

    This plugin seems to be the answer: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/theme-switcher/
