XF 1.1 new style import / child of parent style ?


Well-known member
I am just installing a new style with the option of importing this new style as a "Child of Parent Style".

What happens if I will delete the "Parent-Style"?

I would like to delete the "Parent-Style", as I do not want y users to select the "Parent-Style" via the Link in the Footer.

So if I have installed the "New Style" as the "child of parent style", then I go and delete the "parent Style", will the customizations which I have made for the "Parent Style" (like e.g. hiding some Navbar-Tabs, etc.) still stay with the Child-Style?

Appreciate your help!

You don't have to delete the parent. Just uncheck it so it's not selectable:

Note that when you are logged in as admin you can still select the parent style. But regular users won't have the choice when it's unchecked like in the picture.
