    What users must understand, is the style generator isn't intended to give you a complete, functioning style. It will cover the vast majority of areas for you, there will still be bits of blue knocking about and some of the colours will need to be tweaked but it saves hours of time.
    But it should really, I don't see the point of having a style generator built-in if it doesn't cover all colour areas. With you later having to manually edit some files to compete things. That's not user friendly at all.

      I'm also a fan of the style generator
      I had a few color request and was able to make up a few style, it took about 10 mins and the members love them.

        I have entered a different sort of style generator in the Tracker one that allows visual alteration to sections. http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBIV-10247

          Well it can't make coloured images for you, for starters.

          It's not perfect, and needs work to improve it, but I could never have faced going in and changing all the colours manually, even with the consolidated stylevars.

          It does still need work, but it's an exceptionally useful tool and makes the creation of a basic, mostly-complete alternative colour scheme easier than vb3 was.

                The fact that it allows you to create your own style and have your own colours is the awesome thing about it.

                  I am currently using a skin I created with the style generator, with some extra tweaks, initially I didn't use the generator much, but now I like it very much, it could use a little work to make it perfect, to allow for greater customization, but as it is, it is very helpful

                    Exactly. Without it I feel it's worthless.

                    Feature? It should have been included in the first place. It's not a feature to include it, it's a bug not to.

                    Save it once. What if you want to edit it, or has something changed?

                        You duplicate the default style: Go AdminCP>Styles & Templates>Style Manager>Add New Style

                        In the next screen you give it "No Parent Style"
                        Title: <Name Style>
                        Allow user selection: You need to make your own choice here
                        Display Order: You can leave this empty you can always change it later

                        You will now have a default template from the master style that you can play with if you don't need it anymore you can delete this style also this way you can experiment with styles and the style generator.

                          Yes, the style generator was a great idea vBulletin. Good thinking.

                            I agree, this is a great help. I'd rather have the new Style Generator set up most of the colors with a few left to tweak, than do the whole business myself.
                            Very nice!

                              I think it is has been a great help so far. Yes, I had to manually change some things but it gave me a good base.
