What is the difference between a style and a theme?

edited May 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I know this may sound silly, but is a style the coloring and a theme the design of the tables??? What is a good one to use? -Jonathan

    Yep, that's what a style and a theme are.

    The choice of your theme and style is up to you, knowing most of the styles (and addons) are designed for Vanilla's default theme.
  • Basically, there are many choices of styles for the default Vanilla theme. However, there are only a few choices of styles (if any) for any other particular theme.

    Also, you should be aware that a theme is universal across all your users. Once you set it, everyone must use that theme. Each user does however, have the ability to choose their own style (providing you install the Custom Styles Extension)

    Style = CSS
    Theme = Underlying HTML / PHP code
