furball - huh?

theme switching?

I've been searching around but haven't seen this covered. Apologies if I missed it.

Is there anyway to use your theme layers like different skins? Basically, what I'd like to do is have buttons on my layout that allow me to change from one theme to another, the equivilent of what would be switching between styles or skins on a website, but here on my LJ. *Without* having to go into the customize page and selecting one of the themes listed there.

Each of the themes has a 7-digit ID number, couldn't that be used in some sort of way to do this? Sort of like how 'style=mine' can override other people's layouts, can that layer ID number be used to override my default theme on command?

Hopefully this makes sense. :-) Thanks!

ETA: Just found this and am trying to adapt it. Does this only work with changing the "layout" and not the theme IDs? I tried doing it with my theme id numbers and it ignored them.

removing scroll box in links list.

so on my layout, i have my links list. i've FINALLY fiugred out how to add seperate lists all in one (by category)... but here's my question.

in my code, if i take out the
####################################
# LINKLIST IN SCROLLBOX #
# kunzite1, component-help/270309 #
# overrides Page::print_linklist() #
####################################

code, will it mess up my WHOLE layout, or will it just take out the scroll bar? iknow it seems SO simple to just 'try to take out the links list in scroll box... but i'm so skeptical about messing up my layout.
