Theme Switcher


Allow users to switch which theme they use on your WordPress, WordPress MU, or BuddyPress site. Includes a widget for easily putting the theme-switcher as a list or dropdown in your sidebar.


  • The Theme Switcher widget allows you to set the title of the widget and to choose the “list” or “dropdown” option.
  • The Theme Switcher widget in action on the sidebar.


  1. Download and extract the theme-switcher plugin file.
  2. Upload the theme-switcher directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin under the ‘Plugins’ menu in the WordPress admin.
  4. Add the “Theme Switcher” widget to one of your widgetized sidebars, or call wp_theme_switcher() directly.


How do I print the Theme Switcher markup without using widgets?

You can call wp_theme_switcher() directly. Calling wp_theme_switcher() alone (no arguments) will print a list of themes; calling wp_theme_switcher('dropdown') will print a dropdown of themes.
