Can't change default style

Post by jauggy »

On my forum:
http://www.notyetforum.com

I have tried to change the default style to subsilver2 from prosilver. When I log out of the forum I see prosilver style. I changed the default style in the Admin CP and also purged cache.

EDIT
Nevermind I just deactivated the old template then reactivated it.

For future reference, in this case, you must change the style for the Anonymous user in User management.

Will all my existing users see the board in the new default style automatically or will they have to select it?

They will have to select it, unless you either delete all other styles, or set to Override the user's style in the ACP, Board settings.

To transfer users from one style to another you have to:
1. Switch the default style of your forum to the new one.
2. Deactivate your old style where most of the registered user are.
*All of the users will be transfered automatically to the new default style.
3. Activate again the old style.
Done.
