Texty is the first template submitted to Textplates ’07 and was created by Peter Moulding. The template includes a variety of themes (Bright, Cloudy, and Off Colour) bundled into a clean style-switcher.

    The clean style-switcher is due in large part to Mary the TXP developer. Although my version is working on several sites, there was a problem at Textplates and it turned out to be my poorly written code. Please visit this thread where you can get the cleaned up code for ‘switch.php’ and the ‘texty_stylesheet’ form.

    I like the idea of a styleswitcher, but having to refresh is a hassle. Also, there are tons of divs – descendant selectors and styling the html and body elements could alleviate the problem.

    The refresh is only necessary on some browsers. Most I’ve tried work OK. But if you go back over pages you’ve already seen with one style then you have to refresh to see the new style.

    I’ve tried but I’ll try again and see if I can reduce the divs. Thanks for your comment.

    What! No pictures? Come on, get yourself into the 20th century man. Definitely a NO from me.
