    I’m using it, it’s working just fine. Except for a little glitch that I discovered by accident today: doesn’t matter what theme you’re in, if you click on the “home” link in the header you get a reload of my original “default” theme, Quentin from pikemurdy. I’ve looked at source on 30 different sites today, and I can’t see one damn thing different from source on my page from all those. I see some using a different scripting setup, but that’s not germane….

    I absolutely am flummoxed. It was just an accident that I even clicked on the header link….

    Ive had the same problem. Likewise on a cat change. Bang. Back to my default.

    Hmmmmmm….. Root, do you think installing Kubrick would “fix” this? If that’s it, then Ryan needs to do some tweaking I think….

    I notice that with your site, I do not have that problem as I have no Quentin on my server but it also does not happen with Sunset, yeah I know I have no header link 🙂

    Okay, wait a sec…. dawg, what do you mean by “no header link”?

    dawg

    (@dawg)

    If you click on my header there is no link! Unless you have changed it.

    vkaryl

    (@vkaryl)

    Ah. On “Sunset” this is true, there is no “header link” – the link to
    P O V is in the horizontal nav.

    And you do not want to know how dumb I really am, I think (or maybe you do….) Anyway, I think it’s the dif between putting the addy as “…opinion/” and “…opinion/index.php”.

    Which if true (and I’ll be in “check mode” tomorrow – too late tonight) will make me feel REALLY stupid, but then again, no knowledge is ever wasted.

    Thats too funny, I do have my own blonde moments, not too often though

    Yah. I CAN laugh at my own idiocies, I promise you…. I’ll report back tomorrow!

    It’s all about cookies. The theme cookie is set against the Blog Address. If you are visting your site through a URI that is different than your Blog Address, the cookie won’t do it’s thing. The usual cause is a www prefix.

    Nope – no www prefix, Ryan, and thanks for posting. The single dif so far is as described above….

    I’ll do some concerted testing tomorrow after we haul hay in the morning – gotta feed the 4-feets first. I’ll report back as soon as I have something concrete to show…. believe me, at this point it will no doubt be something even an idiot should know (so I’m obviously even DUMBER than that….!)

    Ryan: I had to change this line in each header<a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> to a straight index.php URL call.

    I haven’t set up but one category really yet, I still have to look to see what happens from there, Root.

    Thanks for that – I am following this closely. I am beginning to see it on other sites now. Nevertheless – in fairness I should add that Ryans device is a very nifty piece of kit, and he has done masses of work on all things themes – which is why we are now having a lot of fun. Bound to be the odd glitch. Cookies are temperamental anyway.

    vkaryl

    (@vkaryl)

    Yeah – cookies ARE the devil in a lot of ways…. Oh yes, I LOVE the theme-switcher, and have no plans to go away from it!

    Now if I could just uninstall K******…………………

    vkaryl

    (@vkaryl)

    We’ll work on that, okay? I’m sure there must be a way – it truly makes no sense that I and others have no need for it, but you are required to keep it! Nonsensical, totally illogical….
