Changing Switchy Pixel Post to Dark Default

Monday, July 4th, 2011

I have a photoblog and one of my favorite templates is ‘switchy‘.  My only qualm with it is the default theme is the light instead of the dark with no option to control which theme the templates defaults to.

So after doing some Google searching (to no avail), I figured I would get my hands dirty and try to change it myself (which didn’t turn out to be too difficult).

First, I downloaded the switchy template, extracted the zip file and searched the folder AND its file contents for the phrase ‘light’.

The first hit ‘image_template.html’ contains the following on lines 17 and 18:

<link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”templates/switchy/styles/light.css” title=”light” />
<link rel=”alternate stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”templates/switchy/styles/dark.css” title=”dark” />

Change this to the following:

<link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”templates/switchy/styles/dark.css” title=”dark” />
<link rel=”alternate stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”templates/switchy/styles/light.css” title=”light” />

Now the default theme for the switchy template will be the dark instead of the light!
