Modded this on to my test forum today. As far as I can see, it mostly works. Everything is in place, and the lists show up properly.

The switcher can switch from the regular template to any of the colored templates, and from any of the colored templates to any of the other colored templates.

It will not switch from any of the other templates back to the basic 2.3 template or the old 2.1 template. Whether this is a bug, or some step I have not understood, I do not know.

But for the most part, it seems to work fine. Just thought I would report my results.
  

Improving my forum, one mod at a time!


Now up and running again, with an accurate link.

yabb21.css

I don't get it  Grin Maybe I've done something wrong or thought this Mod did something different.

I have my own templates I've designed so I don't need or have any use for the ones that have come with this mod... is there anyway for me to be able to use my templates and they be able to be in the drop down?

 You can add your own Template Configurations simply by either renaming or adding the options to fit your template names.

   Open the MOD file, find where Main.lng is edited or if already installed open the Main.lng file in the Languages folder and edit.

I installed it, and got it working.

I have changed the template names to ones I want to use, and have tried to create some templates for the old style too, as my current forum uses the old template.

The issue I have is that when logged in you can switch any style with the new 2.3 templates, any colour works and it all switches.  However, you cannot choose any of the old 2.1 styles or colours. They just do not work.

If you log out, it works perfectly as you are a guest!

Any clues?

Great mod!

*edited*

I am working my way through creating the colours for the YaBB2.1 templates.  My users can then choose the modern or tradional template with a choice of colours for both.

I'm having some problems installing this, it seems to be when I upload the load.pl file or the default.html 

I installed it like 5 times and same thing?

I'm not exactly sure, My 404error page redirects you to the home page.

after I install this mod and open my browser to my site, the browser just refreshes its self over and over again!
