When one has a custom style, are these the correct settings?
There is no point having your custom style as a child of a non-selectable default style.
Ummm, no it's not.
Either edit the default style with however you want it to look, or, if you don't feel comfortable editing the default style, start a brand new style (not a child of the default).
If it's your own custom style, it will inherit from the master.
This is my set up.
Fluid inherits everything from Fixed.
The only difference is Fluid has Responsive Design enabled.
No? Because we have a style called Central Hub where do all the style property and template edits so when we make additional site exclusive styles in the future all we have to do is add custom CSS specifically for that style, and we haven't had any problems with this method:
Look at the list of styles you have, @Amaury and tell me where your Default style is - like in @tommydamic68's screenshot.. or wait... is it because your screenshot possibly resembles @Brogan's . . . and then tell me that both Brogan and I are wrong.
I bought this style from @Russ and it is the way he set it up (I think, I never recall touching this setting - @Russ ?) - I have never thought it wasn't the correct settings.
If it's a third party style then you should have installed it, then created a child and edited the child.
What you have now is just a mess, especially considering you have also customised the parent default style - templates and style properties.
You dont' install a third party style as a child of the default. You install it as a new style - and make changes on a child style of that.
I didn't mean "No?" as in you guys were wrong, I meant it as "That's not a correct setup?"
Anyway, our default is KH-Flare 4.0. However, I think we may talking about completely different things, so I'll just stop here.
I would since you generally cause more confusion than you do anything else
I am pretty sure he did it OR had me set it up that way for a reason.
And what is the issue with the set up? The site functions and appears fine.
Why bother asking if you're going to ignore the advice given?
Fine, carry on then.
Forgive me for mentioning this, but you asked in your original post if the way you have it is the correct set up. It isn't - whether it works or not (which is debatable judging by the amount of questions you ask to fix the layout of various things) ... it's not the correct set up.
- unfortunately, none of that is too helpful, but really, thanks for trying guys!
So, back to my original question that has been partially answered, would anyone have an idea of my next step to ironing this out and acquiring the correct setting? Any "useful" information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Responses like that will guarantee people stop trying to help you.
This thread has been full of "useful" information - just because it's not what you wanted to hear doesn't make it any less accurate or useful.
If the style you have is one that you purchased, you need to install it as a parent style - not as a child style of the default. Then, if you want to make it look different from the parent third-party style, you need to add a child style of THAT particular style (again, NOT the default) and make the changes there.
If, however, you want to build a new style - then use the default style that was shipped with xenforo - make the edits to that style and don't set it as invisible.
Here's another bit of useful information. Try being slightly more polite to those people who are taking time out to answer your questions - and showing extreme amounts of patience when you repeat the same questions over and over, because you don't like the answer you're given - it's gonna get to the point where those people who are taking that time will give up and then you really will be stuck
