Login & Registration Page will not change to new style

Post by Keno2113 »

I have a new installation of version 3.0.5 running on a Windows IIS 6.0 server and MS SQL 2005. Everything seems to be working fine except when I install a new style. I installed the Avalon and AutumnsColor styles. The pages are being stored in the directory not the SQL. Everything looks good except when I log out. The style for the log in and registration pages are still prosilver style. I have refreshed the styles, deleted the cache and set the Load Setting to Recompile stale style. Nothing helps.

Awesome! After beating my head against the desk for the last hour that did it (your solution not beating my head). Thanks. So let me make sure I get this straight. Setting the style as the default style is not enough to change everything. To have all pages set to the new "default" style you must also make this setting in the anonymous user profile?

The guests see what the anonymous account sees.

I only ever use the default style when I'm using the override option below it.

Setting a Style as the Default Style only changes it for new users.
The old users would have to go into their user control panel and change it there or they would still see their old chosen style.
Since the Anonymous user is used when you are not logged in, you have to change it for the Anonymous user too.
