    Hi

    I'm going to start a new site where users can submit their blogger templates. I need a Wordpress plugin which can show the demo of blogger templates within the WordPress blog with toolbar. You can check the demo at btemplates.com by clicking on demo link.

    Is there anyone who can help me ?

    Do you just want to show screenshots, or a demo of the theme?

    How can you demo a Blogger theme inside of WordPress?

    Scratch that question. I figured it out. Just need a Blogger account for each demo template and run it inside of a frame.

    I can theorize how to do that, just a custom page to handle the control bar frame up top.

    Great that you got it. Can you tell me how to do that ?

    The page will open with frames with toolbar on top. I also need custom URL for that.

    Like I said, I can theorize how to do it.

    You need to make a custom page template in your theme. The custom page will not have any of your normal WordPress functionality, it will be a page using "frames". Main frame (control bar at top) controls the template frame below.

    Why do you want a Wordpress site that shows blogger themes? Kinda defeats the purpose of promoting how great blogger is if you don't actually use it for the website, doesn't it?

    The custom page is a source frame. Do not use any WordPress calls for the_header() or the the_footer(). This frame is just normal Html which controls the target frame (your demo Urls).

    Here is an demonstration of what I am talking about. That is a WordPress site.

    Why are you trying to do this with Wordpress instead of blogger? The bottom line is technically, you can't run Blogger themes on Wordpress.

    I know how to do that. I can do it for a single page but I'm not getting how to do it for hundreds of demo pages. I can't create so much pages to show demo.

    Just don't see how you are going to set up demos of blogger themes, on Wordpress. Even if you go the iFrame route, you still have to run the themes on Blogger or else just offer a screen shot.
    Blogger and Wordpress are not compatible.

    You only need the main frame, with a hundreds of "target links". You do not need a page for every theme. If you want a separate control frame for every theme, then use a $_POST variable on the control frame.

    That is a given. A separate Blogger blog has to be set up for each theme.

    I don't do gtalk, don't have a phone, don't chat, don't IRC, don't text, etc. I contract out though.

    Ok then suppose I have created a new page with frame linked to blogger template. Now when I'll write a new posts for blogger templates how will I link to demo pages from new posts for new templates with new URL for each template.

    Example of what I want:

    Post 1 URL: http://site-name.com/post1.html
    Demo 1 URL will be http://site-name.com/post1/demo


    Post 2 URL: http://site-name.com/post2.html
    Demo 2 URL will be http://site-name.com/post2/demo

    I want to do this for all the posts. Please tell me how to do that ?
