AutoMOD will only attempt to modify styles that are specifically mentioned by the MOD author -- usually prosilver and subsilver2. This is something that I am still evaluating. I may implement code to force template installs on other templates if there are enough requests.

So if i am using a different style like soul_city for example i cannot install a mod to that template!!!

Ok thanks for the update! but it would be great AytoMOD to have a dropdown menu, for example, in order to choose one of the installed styles of the forum and make the changes in the specify style...

Thanks anyway the AutoMOD is still GREAT! ;)

just edit prosilver or subsilver2 to your style name in MODX file and then install it

From my testing, if the mod author provides a modx for that style AutoMOD will install it. Since most styles are based off of prosilver or subsilver two those edits could probably be used but that is not always the case. I don't think it can be expected any mod can be installed with AutoMOD on any style if the author does not provide the instructions.

hi
i remember easymod used to modify other styles, i kind of think whats the point of making/usung other styles if they are not modded as you would want the mod to work on all styles right?
please consider this as one more request :)
thanks for AutoMod Image

I remember having to rename the template being modified in the MOD install file for EasyMOD to get it to modify non-standard styles. It wasn't automatically done. Plus it would be pretty impossible to do something like this as styles won't necessarily be the same as prosilver or subsilver2. All you'll be getting is a bunch of fails most of the time.
