I've been using the Oi Skinhead skin for awhile now. I've gotten a little tired of it, and I want to switch over to the Shinx skin. I have Shinx set in my settings preferences, but when I navigate away from the website, it switches back. I've tried logging out and logging back in, which works until I navigate away. I've cleared my cache and my cookies, and basically everything I (or Brian) can think of. Help?

I've actually been experiencing the same thing ever since I joined Mercury, so regrettably, I'm of no help here. I figured that's just the way the site worked.

I have discovered that it's only on my computer. I'm on a school computer right now and it loaded Shinx just fine.

It certainly isn't a general thing. I've never experienced any issues with my chosen skin not reloading after navigating away. I've just tried several right now, including Shinx, and had no problems any of them.

I have the exact same problem with Shinx. I set it as my default and on my personal computer it would always go back to my previous default. Then when I'm on a university computer [I'm guessing any system with constantly cleared cookies?] it is Shinx.

Try changing it from the bottom of the screen. If that doesn't work, try changing it from your User Control Panel. Let me know if neither works.

[QUOTE=Lady Brooke;65433][I'm guessing any system with constantly cleared cookies?][/QUOTE]
I don't think it's likely to be a cookie issue because I hardly ever clear out my cookies, and I've never experienced the problem. I do however always use the box at the bottom of the screen if I want to change the skin, so if you do it by a different method, maybe there's an issue in the User Control panel or something.

It's saved as my preferred skin in the Control Panel, but on my computer I always change it at the bottom of the screen because it always comes up with the old skin. It doesn't seem to be a problem on any other computer.

That's really odd. I'll look into it over my Thanksgiving Break. In the meantime, I have two 6-8 page papers I need to have done by Monday and Tuesday and a report due Monday, so look back around Wednesday at the earliest.

There's no rush. Real life prioritizes the forum. :)

By the way, I've tried it with Aperture, too, and it's doing the same thing.

Did you say which browser you were using? They will probably ask when I write about it in the support forums.

It turns out I'm a bit behind on the upgrading thing, so I'm going to do that, and if it doesn't work after we've upgraded the software (I imagine it'll still be a problem, because it sounds like a problem with your computer, not vBulletin), I'll put in a ticket.

EDIT: Okay it's been updated. Still having problems?

Yeah. Don't worry about it, though, it's not too much trouble to scroll to the bottom of the page and change it.

Hey, so I figured this out. It was entirely on my end. I had bookmarked MI when I was using Oi_Skinhead, and the style ID for that is 15, which I had bookmarked, so it was going to that regardless of what I had in my settings. The style ID for Aperture is 21. I changed it in my bookmarks, and it's fine now. :p
