    To point your 'Default' to a different style:

    Admin CP -> Styles -> Modify -> Default -> Properties -> Then change the Replacement and Template sets to the desired style

      Thanks again Steve..
      I did all that & now I have a new Hebrew style set as my default one.. Now will this ensure that I won't lose any of my custom templates next time I perform an upgrade?

        If you make the same mistakes you made the first time, then I expect you'd get the same results. Not being facetious, but you should never have over-written them the first time. I still don't understand how that happened.

        Whatever you do, download the style set you want to save to your home computer. (Styles -> Download -> etc.) That way you'll always have a backup if something goes wrong.

          Open up vbulletin.style. Find "!!!master!!!". Remove it. Proceed with editing.

          If you don't do that, you will lose your template changes when you upgrade.

            I did that, Ed.. Can I make changes now thru the cp?
            And I did Steve & the others told me. i.e. I made another copy of the styles file, renamed it, made it default.. and I'm making all changes to that.. Is this method compatible with what u just instructed me to do?

              I'd always recommend using the official editing methods via the CP over editing any files directly.

              I was just saying IF you're going to edit the file, you need to do that.

                thanks..
                but since I'm not going to edit the file directly.. should I keep that !!!master!!! bit?

                  Yes -- vbulletin.style doesn't really do anything except when you're upgrading anyway.
