Topic # 69469 8-Oct-2010 21:18 Send private message

My site (http://tom.geek.nz) is a Joomla based site hosted on a VPS, I have in the last 24 hours had the site start loading the original template, instead of the default template I have installed. The strange thing is that it only affects me, and only in Chrome..... I for the life of me cannot think why or how it has happened and am kinda annoyed.... 

Any help would be appreciated!!! Any questions just ask!!

You have deleted your chrome cache?

Edit: Sorry I reread your post and realised it is loading the default joomla template.

You can specify different templates for logged in users. Would this be the case?

This is a bit off topic but how can you stand Joomla? Have you tried out Wordpress or Silverstripe?

Joomla does tend to have more people developing for it and modules. However I have seen so many hacked joomla websites.

What happens if you browse to it in Incognito mode in Chrome?

Ok, Incognito Mode turns up the proper template.....

EDIT: But I found the problem. There was a cookie for the site called "template", I deleted this and not it runs fine. I had suspected cookies from the start but never thought to look at them.....
