  • Style problems

    2.0 Beta 5

    I'm having problems uploading styles. It is unclear to me how to add a style and what the difference is between adding a style and uploading a style. I also can find no mention of styles in the online user manual, which seems odd. It only mentions templates, which are different. Will you be adding a section on using styles to the online manual or am I overlooking it somehow?

    The manual is for 1.1.x as we're only in beta status with 2.0.

      Thanks Mike.

      Can you confirm if I understand Styles correctly then? Or is there any other information on how to use them?

      I customized my boards and then ran into some problems and had to do a clean reinstall. As I understand it, I should have gone into the Styles, modified it to what I wanted it to be and then downloaded it as a backup with a file name like . If I had done that, then all I would need to do (theoretically) to restore my custom config from a clean reinstall of Beta 5 is to simply upload that backup style file.

      Is this correct?

        Style = template set + replacement set

        So yes, had you downloaded your default style, you could've imported it and had all your custom templates/replacement variables back.

        You'd still have to edit your settings and get the forums exactly how you wanted it, but that would adjust most of the layout of the forum...
