    If I put this in the wrong thread, I apologize.

    I am currently making my website and I would like to add a theme changer to it. For anyone who doesn't know, a theme changer is basically a link that allows the user to change the style of the current site. An example is ForceFX.net at the bottom right of the screen. Now, I know how to do it with just html and css (which is how they did it), but it would take forever (basically making five sites). I was wondering if there is another way to do this? Maybe some kind of scripting language or something.

    Read this article on Alistapart should help you. JavaScript is required for this though.

    The one that site is using isn't javascript at all. It's a weird way to do it.

    Read what I said. Forcefx.com or whatever, uses a weird way to do it. Not javascript, not even PHP in a good way.

    I wouldn't refer to ALA as "that site", and I know ALA works. ALA is deadly.

    But it's cool!
