Syncing changes to multiple themes?

    We're currently using a dark grey theme, but would like to give members the option to use a light version if they prefer it. When we tested the light version, all of the customizations we had made to the dark theme were missing. Is there a way to sync changes from one theme to another? And possibly an add-on that might keep them both up to date?

    You could edit the light style and make it a child of the dark style. That way it inherits everything about the dark style plus any further customizations that have been made to the light style:

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Styles

    Ok, thanks. Is there any way to copy the config files from the dark theme? I'm not averse to the work, I just don't want to miss anything.

    What config files?

    Setting the parent style should be enough in most cases.
