Build your own PHP style sheet switcher
Aug 24, 2006 @ 15:19:11

At the 456 Berea St blog today, there's a popular new post that demonstrates a simple (yet effective) method for switching out the style sheets on your site at the whim of the user.

Want to have a style switcher that lets your site’s visitors choose a different style sheet? Want it to work even if there is no JavaScript support? The trick is to use a server-side language like PHP, which is what I use for my style switcher.

Using PHP to let the user switch to a different CSS file is nothing new. But it is one of the things that I am often asked about, so I thought it would be good to have a write-up to refer people to in the future.

The code for the switcher is only about five lines long, implementation and all, but it's a nice, clean way to do it. It would break if the viewer didn't have cookies allowed on their system, though.
