I would like my site visitors to choose their own Template from Template Chooser. My problem, is that the session appars to Timeout and revert back to the Default Template. I've read that I can change the timeout from 15mins to (long time), but can't find where to make this change in php.
It's Joomla 1.5.20

Hi,
Tto change these settings log into admin area
click on Site menu
click on Global Configuration
go in System tab
change the settings for
Cache settings
and
Session Settings

I don't know if this will fix your problem but this is where it is set.

Sorry, this must be just for Logged in users, as after I rebooted my test PC, it reverted back to default.

The default that comes with Joomla. I've Googled this quite a bit, think I may see if there's a download/plugin that has "Sticky Templates"

Well, checked it out, it's the one I'm already using. So, I dug a bit deeper, and the funcion is already there, in the module, it just needs switched on.
