It applies only to subSilver and other styles that use phpBB styles management to edit colors. Aphrodite and all my other styles already use external css.

Greetings,

I get the feeling your on about the latest version of phpBB (version 3, which has not been released as far as I know), if this is indeed the case then your asking the question in the wrong forum completely.

And to answer your question look in the file 'theme_info.cfg' which contains all the default settings for any style.

I do not provide any install services for phpBB, Mods or Styles.
Please do not pm me for support/scripting help - you won't get any reply. If you have a question then make a post in the appropriate forum.

Use a text editor such as TextPad, or if you dont want to download that, use WordPad. Then righ tclick on file, choose open with then select textpad or wordpad.

Do not use notepad.

Note: Instructions above are for windows - I dont know instructions for other platform.
