I have put together a plugin called Oxygen Theme Enabler for users of Oxygen to enable them to use the active theme on select pages of their WordPress site.

The plugin adds a new setting page which can be accessed at Oxygen > Theme Enabler.

Here, you can select whether you want to use the theme or Oxygen for most of your site’s pages.

In its current version, there is no GUI to specify the if condition that the above setting should take effect on. If time permits, I shall try to add something like this (screenshot from WooSidebars plugin) in the future.

You will need to edit the following line in plugin.php file of the plugin and enter your if conditional:

return ( is_page( 'contact' ) ? true : false ); // enter your if condition here. Reference: https://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags

Replace is_page( 'contact' ) with the conditional depending on where you want to use the theme/Oxygen.

A few valid examples:

is_page( array( 42, 'about-me', 'About Me And Joe' ) )



and more can be seen here.

To download and install the plugin, head over to the plugin’s page on Github.

For adding code blocks wrap the code in three backticks. Markdown should work.
Provide a URL of your site/webpage if something is not working.
  • Hey Sridhar,

    Just letting you know, when enabling this plugin on the latest version of Oxygen (2.1.2), it actually breaks the Oxygen editor. I’ve tried it on multiple browsers, each time I enable, it breaks, but everything works as it should after disabling this plugin.

    Thanks for sharing though!
