I'd like to have a theme changer on my website.

What I want basically is to give users an ability to change my website theme if they want to, so I could get two different type of customers (for example: one could be very simple and the other one could have a lot of things like glamour style).

So ... is it possible to make something like that ?

Ahhh theme selectors nooooo :p
I think you could do some thing with a session variable and maybe the _conifg.php in mysite.
You set them theme inside _config, so you'd need some basic forms on Page.php that set a variable. Then maybe in the _config have

$mytemplate = Session::get("mythemevariable");
if($mytemplate) {
} else {

Not 100% if that'll work
