I had made two themes for my site.One is for front end and second is back end. The front end totally different from back-end. My senior is that when normal user is view my site then front theme is rendered and when Administrator is logged in then back end theme is rendered. I have tested my themes that both works fine.But I don't know how to dynamically switch themes on current user status ?
I made Services folder in my module made class to make Admin theme for my that module but i don't know How to full fill my senior. Any help would be appreciated
public  class ThemeSelector : IThemeSelector


        public ThemeSelectorResult GetTheme(RequestContext context)
                return new ThemeSelectorResult { Priority = 90, ThemeName = "AdminTheme" };

You have to implement IThemeSelector for that. Simply copy "AdminThemeSelector" from Orchard.Framework/UI/Admin to your own module, and change the theme name to yours and use a higher priority.
