I’ve been working on new styles for my vBulletin site – http://www.intatters.com lately. It’s been an exercise in frustration to say the least. Most of he changes I was making simply were not showing on my test style. And the vBulletin forums – no help there 🙁
This evening I stumbled across the answer. I had my board set up to force one style only and to not allow users to select any other style, well even though I had set my own style the system was still overriding and forcing me back.
Moral of the story is that if you’re designing a new style, make sure you allow users to select styles 🙂
