Difference between Style Chooser and setting a style in Preferences


Active member

Is there any difference between setting a style in the Style Chooser in the bottom left corner vs setting a style in the account preferences?

It looks as though Style Chooser sets the style just for that browser, whereas in the user preferences it is set on the account and that style goes into effect on any browser that the user uses.

Is that correct?

No they both do exactly the same thing. You can verify by looking at the the xf_user.style_id and see they both update this field.
