If you have no other MODs I'd got for a fresh file set and reapply the style changes.
*NOTE: Before proceeding backup all files and the database.*
- Upload all new files from a download of the full version, except for config.php, the /images and /files folders.
- Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
- Let that run and then delete the install folder.
- You now have a new up to date board containing all your users and posts but without any MODs that you might have had installed.

You would need to do 6 versions of style updates if you want to keep it as it is. Easier to update and reapply the changes.

That's about it.
Up the Junction wrote:4. Are there any changes between the two versions to the overall_header and overall_footer pages? Again, ours are modifed.
Probably. I can't remember. But if you look in the styles forum it has stickies for the file changes for each version.
