Template or CSS Switcher with cookie handling

  • Laughinglizard


    Maybe I am going overboard with this template deal, or maybe this has been discussed before (I do remember seeing a bunch of posts on the tikada site about cookie based theme switching). Please ignore/delete this post if that is the case. However, I found a really interesting article at A List Apart dot com about dynamic stylsheet changes using a simple javascript and storing the information as a cookie. I was really itching to try it out with all the talk in the WordPress Forums about retro stylesheets for WordPress. Check out the switcher at http://dinki.mine.nu/weblog/ On the top right hand side of the menu you will see the themes I have installed for my version of WordPress, albeit with a few modifications to suit my second menu column. Feel free to play around and see which one you like best. If you would like to implement this on your site ( no matter which CMS you use, this will work for you ) simply visit the List Apart link above, download the javascript and follow the instructions. If you are confused, feel free to email me and I will try to help.
    PS: once you choose a templte/style, a cookie is set on your computer which remembers your choice for the next time 🙂 The themes break in Mozilla (for now) and do not degrade well, but thats not the point of this exercise
