I've a question Arty, I've had a style slightly modified called 3myl_sable for years but it's no longer compatible with the latest PHPBB and have been trying to get used to CA Vintage but can't get on with it, will WinMerge make 3myl_sable compatible with 3.0.11 ?

It would really solve loads of problems, I'm getting old and don't like change. :mrgreen:

I got bored and updated the style for you http://gotskillslounge.com/downloads/ph ... _sable.zip
note that my version inherits from subsilver2 so you must have subsilver2 installed also

Brilliant, all is back to normal and the the world can breathe a sigh of relief.

Can I ask ya, is my current style which you changed for me an old style updated or a new style made to look like my old style ?


It's just when you said you'd based it on ProSilver2..........

and from what he said, it uses many of the subsilver2 files instead of having all of its own files like the old version of the style did.

that is why you must have subsilver2 installed so it can pull files from it for the rest of what it needs.
