    I compared the replacement list of this, and the old forum I have installed and the older one is considerably bigger.

    Yes, I imported a style that I put together on a clean install of 2.2.8 I had done before. I imported it before I upgraded and everything was perfect.

      Well, perhaps you should try importing it again?

        I did.

        *Edit* Wow, but now that I look at my style in the admin cp, there alot of things missing there too...

          Ok, I will backup and type out everything I did so that you guys may better understand what is going on...

          1. I installed a clean version of 2.2.6 using a db named 'db'
          2. I restored a backup that i had made earlier via SSH to a db named 'forum'.
          3. I changed over to the new db named 'forum' in the config file.
          4. I uploaded the style that I had previously made on a clean install of 2.2.8. Everything was looking great at this point.
          5. Launched upgrade scripts 20 & 21 from my browser.

          Now it looks like it does now, the replacement list is missing a bunch of things and so is the style.

            Try this. Upload the file from the zip file to your admin directory. Make sure you upload in ASCII and overwrite the one on the server. Then use the Styles Download/Upload function to 'Import existing style set'. Choose 'No, create a new style', then click on 'Import File'.

              Sweetness! Thanks Steve, you are the man!

              This is what it's supposed to look like.
