How Do I correctly Copy a Style ?

    After searching through the forum - I figured that there is no direct "copy" of a style.

    So I exported the default style - and imported it again. I know have 2 styles . One the default one. and the second which I will use and change according to our needs.

    However, if I look at the file structure created on the xenforo server - I see in the
    /public_html/styles folder , only one subfolder called default.

    So the folder lies in : /public_html/styles/default

    This default style folder now only contains one subdirectory called /xenforo.

    I wonder why there is no second style folder there, since I have two styles ?

    Can anybody please explain -

    a) how do i really copy the entire style ?

    b) is it correct that there is only one style in the style directory after seeing two styles inside CP ?

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    The style templates are stored in the database.

    If you want to use a separate directory on the server for images, create the directory and copy the files.

    Then update the image path for the style in Style Properties -> General-> Path to Images.

    BTW, you don't need to export and import to get a new default style, just click the +Create New Style button.
