Theme switcher problems in Firefox (9 posts)

    I've hit a problem in firefox, using a WordPress 2.02 (latest) blog I'm experimenting with hoping to release a theme.

    When I use IE, all is well, but in Firefox, the theme switcher, in a drop down menu, does not work.

    If I go to change a theme using the drop down menu, I get a page which states 'OK The document has moved here.'

    The 'here' is an hyperlink which, when clicked upon, leads to the same page, but no theme change on it.

    Any ideas?

    Hmmm

    The problem has gone now, inasmuch as I can see the themes.

    I'm not sure if it is standard in WordPress 2.02 viewed through FireFox (latest release) to have a page which says 'OK, the document has moved here' when you change the themes.

    Is this just the way it is?

    I'd prefer the theme to just alter without the add on page from FF, but I'm not a snob and will take this as standard if its the way it is.

    Which theme switcher are you using? I recall some other discussions here in the forums (search!) about this and, as I recall, there are a couple different theme switcher plugins and not all have the same behavior. I think...

    Im using Ryan Boren

    Adapted from Alex King's style switcher and one linked to here.

    I'll try another switcher out

    I've found a theme switcher by Mr Peer
    and it is at Version 2.0, I think.

    This one has an option in the plug in editing pages that allows you to choose which themes are included.

    Works a treat so far, using Firefox and viewing a WP 2.02 blog.

    Sorry to go on, but the Mr Peer theme switcher actually stops me from editing any of the themes in my WP user control panel when I install this plug in.

    If I click on a theme to edit, I get sent to the home page of the website and cannot edit any files.

    This happens in IE and Firefox.

    If I deactivate the plug in, I can edit themes from the control panel. I'm not sure why this is so, but so it is, and I suppose I can deal with it until someone has a better solution on this problem.

    I suppose deactivating the plug is no big deal and the bonus is that you can choose what styles you want listed as you get another add on section to the plug in editor which lets you do that.

    All in all I can live with this plug in as it works with WP 2.02.

    It was built for WP 1.5, so cannot really blame whoever made it.

    Thanks Handy Solo, as it happens it looks like there is some useful stuff there which I'll try out later.

    Besides, the plug I used was throwing up xhtml errors, solved them by messing with the php but the advice you point to sounds easier.

    Thanks for taking the time to post.
