Template Selector 1.8.4 Released!
It works on pages other than a top page by Chrome or other browsers.
It would be unfair to give a score here. I cannot get the package to work on Joomla 3.4. I used it previously and found it very useful.
Easy to use if it works. Unfortunately impossible to use on 3.4
I did leave a message but.....
Worked as a charm and it even can switch between native Joomla templates and Gantry, what is not possible with other extensions!
Install, publish plugin and create a module. No complicated setup required!
Website could be a bit more clean. E.g. the downloads are separated into C/P/M, but it is always the same package.
Extension works, but:
1) It sets a cookie chosen style for each individual path (root - / and / path / path / etc) because it is impossible to select a style for the entire site with a whole page / path / path /, and accordingly it is impossible to change the style back but to only being on this page;
2) The extension uses the default style is equal to the default settings of the CMS, because of what the alternative style will not ship its own framework, if it is not selected by default in the CMS.
We are using Joomla 3.3. This extension doesn't seem to work, even after carefully double-checking all of the options. Plugin IS activated, but when we click on any buttons in the module, nothing happens; even the browser load animation does not run.
This is precisely what we wanted to use, but we need support. Thanks!
This is very good module. Its working perfectly. I got Phenomenal support from the module owner( Yoshiki Kozaki).
Once again thanks to him.
Works like a charm for Joomla 1.7x.
However it has some strange behaviours for 3.x. It does switch, but it will not keep the choice when selecting another page via the menu.
Overall great. I even use the "templatedirectory" selector plugin without the module on some 1.7 sites.
This Module is really helpful for sites that have more one template or theme as options for their site layout, i highly recommend this free nice simple module for any person who does want to show all his themes and let users choose between them , like black,white,red templates,,,keep it up ans thanks for this nice module :)
Works as designed.
Just a word to those that say it doesn't work. It's not entirely obvious, but this package also installs a plugin that must also be enabled before the module works.
Hey! I'm using 1.7 and the selector works perfectly there. I have one bug to report and one huge feature to suggest though.
1. The selector is not valid. However, achieving validity is quite easy, in tmpl / default.php you just have to have an action value for the form tag, which should be "#" in our case.
2. One click template change. It's possible to work out a single-click template change with template selector, but for this the users have to edit some code (hide everything in css but the next button). Would be great if you could add this feature for the next release, and then joomla users would have an easy template switcher for accessibility.
I give you four stars for the time being, but if you correct the validity and especially add the one-click template change, this plugin and module will well worth the five. Nicely done!
All I did was 'follow the install instructions' and in less than 5 minutes it worked very well with Joomla 2.5
Thank you for sharing this wonderful extension.
