there is a drop down at the top right of the styles database where you choose styles of each version. when you choose 3.2 the only ones that appear are those that work with 3.2 and those that also work with 3.1 and 3.0
I did have a look around, but didn't think to click on a dropdown called "All branches".
I'm down to 49 options now, which is going to be a lot easier to work through, as I try to find a new style to use.

As you can still download older versions (back to 3.0.0) from the official download path, it is only logical that you can also download suitable mods and styles
That's a good point.
I suppose some people need to install unsupported versions of phpBB, in order to help recover and migrate old databases...or so that they can use a deprecated version of phpBB to help them upgrade old forum MODs or styles and so on.

The guys above said it all, styles sorting is available through a drop-down in the CDB, creating filters like this (3.1)
and this (3.2)
The default is still set to "All branches" mainly because we currently have two versions which are still supported. But I do agree that at some point it might be good to hide the 3.0 styles by default to make it easier for new users. Good suggestion, we'll keep it in mind.
I wonder if the term "All branches" could be changed to something like "phpBB version", when you next work on that page, to make it a bit clearer to someone like me who doesn't join up the dots with "All branches".
I like the idea of you being able to hide the older styles (without getting rid of them). I wonder if you could also flip the dropdown upside down, so that you have "Current Styles" at the top and "Depricated Styles" below, a bit like this:
hypothetical drop down list wrote:phpBB Version
Something like that might help the users focus in on the phpBB version they want to find stuff for, and defocus the old stuff, without making it too difficult to find.
Found something else - Styles missing from the demo website
The phpBB 3.2 styles demo website
has 42 styles on it, but the search for 3.2 styles in the Customisation Database
brings up 49 contributions.
If I can figure out which seven styles are missing from the styles demo website, is there someone I could ask to get them put onto the demo website?
No, there are 43 phpBB 3.2 styles - not 49. So there is only one
style missing from the demo.
EDIT 2: My Invision
Found some people missing a message on the prosilver style page
page says this:
8 users have missed that and posted topics on the forum that the Support tab brings up
I wonder if a global moderator would be able to post a "Go here for support" sticky in that forum (that pretty much repeats all the blurb that Styles Robot wrote) and then lock the forum down, so that nobody else can start topics.
(Maybe the same thing can be done for anything else in that database, where people should request support outside of that area.)
