Alright...I've already posted about this over in another thread, but this one also in on-topic, and may even have been the more appropriate venue, considering the specifics.
I'm getting no love with Alex's 1.2-Compatible WP-Style-Switcher and WP 1.2beta. My server's running FreeBSD/Apache and I'm getting almost exactly the same symptoms as rfrancis,
The list of styles appears without error in the menu bar. When I select one of the 3 alternate styles from the menu the URL shows the new style (index.php?wpstyle=dots), the page refreshes and the style remains the wp-default style.
If I set a different default style as the readme file explains to, the new style applies fine, but again using the style-switcher menu of styles does not change the style of the page.
In both cases the refreshed page *does* know which style should be loaded, as it grays this option. It just doesn't apply the style to the page.
Keying in the url with the ?wpstyle=dots (for example) does not change the style either. I've also checked each style.css file, and they are there as intended.
with two differences:
1. no style in the list is ever greyed-out.
2. the cookie IS being set (to the correct value) on my computer (it shows in Firefox's cookie manager). It must not be getting called properly.
Also, this website is on my hosted account, not running on a local server.
Please take a moment and look at the symptoms: http://quasistoic.org/ts/
Respond if you have any guesses or questions which might guide me in the right direction.
