The image above shows the Style Manager as it would appear immediately after a new vBulletin installation. Looking at the Style Manager from left to right, various controls are visible.
- The 'Allow User Selection' Checkbox
This checkbox controls whether or not the style will be available for non-administrators to use. If the checkbox for a style is cleared, only administrators will be able to use that style.
- The Style Title Hyperlink
The style title is also a hyperlink. Clicking it will open a new window and show the public area of your vBulletin using the style you clicked, even if the public are not able to use that particular style.
- The Display Order Text Box
The small text box containing a number controls the display order of a style. Higher numbers will be displayed later in the listing. This value makes absolutely no difference to the content of the style, and is used soley for convenience of display.
- The Style Options Menu
This popup menu contains links to make alterations to the style such as changing its title, downloading the style as a style.xml file etc.
- The Expand/Collapse Templates List Button
Clicking the button will open or close the list of templates for the current style.
