    That is probably more than a plugin, as usually you need the control panel to activate a theme. A lot of themes also have settings that have to be done, so you would need something to hold those settings.

    What would be the thinking behind theme switch? Maybe on an autoblog it might be nice, whatever the front stories are about it switches the theme to fit that, but you would need a general blog, not niche.

    For each directory the switching of the theme will make sure that the visitor hopping from 1 directory to another directory doenst get used to the same adsense units displayed on a page. Also the changing of colours/fonts will just brainwash the visitor what means more clicking!!!

    Not sure about auto-switching themes, but I know that it is possible to auto-switch the background of your theme.

    Oh, and could you please explain your logic between users getting confused and more clicking?

    For example on BHW, i am "used" to see yahoo ads on the left side, but lets say i come back a week later and i am still used to see them on the left, but they arent there anymore and see some links on the right (yahoo ads) i will click on them unconsiously.

    Ok, I see... although I'm still not sure if that is actually going to help at all :)

    Anyways, why not just set up a cron job or someting to automatically replace your theme layout every week or so?
