    I love this feature!
    You can also call the css file by using get_stylesheet_uri() that way you don’t have to set the theme name:

    $theme_data = get_theme_data(get_stylesheet_uri());

    • Ahh good call Gabriel ill have to update the post to include this method.

  • Hi Cliff, technically you could however that would not be a good way of doing things. I would suggest using something like jquery to let people change stylesheets. This tutorial should help you get started with that.

    This function has been deprecated. That means it has been replaced by a new function or is no longer supported

    • Thanks for the heads up, I updated the snippet, Cheers.
