Description (last modified by lancewillett)

Currently Theme Customizer does not check for existence of a given theme based on the theme query variable.

The admin file should throw an error early on if the theme:

  1. Doesn't exist
  2. Isn't allowed for current blog (multisite only)

Patch attached.

Seems like there are possibly more holes here, such as through the save() manager method and the manager in general.

I can do a full audit in the morning.

Big things:

  • Blocks non-existent or non-allowed themes from being customized, unless the non-allowed theme is the active theme.
  • Fully supports a user having edit_theme_options XOR switch_themes (in both directions).

General changelog:

  • moves manager->theme setup from start_previewing_theme() earlier to setup_theme()
  • removes the $_REQUEST['customize'] check from the manager. I originally moved it to the top of the constructor to fire it earlier, but as the check already occurs when core instantiates it in _wp_customize_include(), we don't need it.
  • Prevents the loader from dealing with customize-support body classes. If you want these, you must use wp_customize_support_script(). This is necessary to allow us to conditionally call wp_customize_support_script() (such as a cap check) without the Loader then overriding our decision.
  • Clarifies URL arguments for deletion/activation and makes customizer nonces theme-specific

Looks good. Tested single site and multisite. Tested network deactivate and activate. Tested with different roles.
