I have been using Mottie's theme selector for quite some time now and absolutely love it.  My guild members that have slow connections at work or whose employers block all graphics love having a theme option meant to load quickly that uses no graphics. 

Last week I changed the default theme.  I took at theme I had been testing out and renamed it to the default theme (style sheet name and everything), renamed the old theme, etc.  My understanding of the way the cookie works is that people who'd already selected to use the default theme should've simply seen the new theme load next time they visited.  I also thought the selector was setup so that the default theme automatically loaded for all new people to the site.  Neither is working quite that way, but I would swear it used to!

On an initial visit to the site when a cookie has not yet been set, it does not attempt to load one of my custom themes, but (it appears) anything that may be loaded into the Site-Wide General Style Settings - which I have totally cleaned out.  The theme selector drop down is also blank rather than showing "Default".

Have I messed up something somewhere or has it always initially tried to load what may be in the Site-Wide General Style Settings?

Hi Ayiana!

I deleted all my cookies in the IE browser and went to your page and it loaded the default theme without any problems. So I can't duplicate the problem you are having. I looked at your script and it appears that everything is okay, so I don't know what to tell you about this problem since I can't duplicate it =(

It's very odd.  I had this happen on three different computers and a couple guildies said their initial load was odd.  But I just brought up a laptop to do a demo and tested it on that and it went just fine.  So I dunno....  But thanks for looking at it for me.
