When you upgrade to YaBB version 2.3/Y2.3.1 from an earlier version of YaBB, there is always the question of what to do with changes you've made to your existing templates or templates you have highly customized.  We recommend you start with the standard 2.3.1 templates/css files and modify them to include any changes you wish to make.  This ensures your templates include all changes so they will fully work with all features.

There are those rare cases where existing templates may be so heavily modified that it's less work to start with those and upgrade them.  This is NOT the case for the casual user, but if this is the case with your template/css files, the following guides are provided to help you edit your template and css files.

The links below take you to another post in this board that gives you specific changes to make that will update your existing YaBB version forum template html and css files to be fully compatible with YaBB version 2.3.

Only versions going back to YaBB 2.1 are covered.


We recommend that you do NOT try to upgrade the Templates/Admin/default.css file from previous versions.
We recommend you use the one that comes with the YaBB version 2.3 download.


To make these changes, you will need to download the specific files mentioned and edit them following the instructions in the post.  You can do this on a simple text editor such as Notepad, or use more powerful tools that make the job easier.  One such program you can download is the free, open-source program  Notepad++ and it's excellent Plug-In called "Compare" that will let you compare the old/new files yourself and modify accordingly.  You can also use a program such as the free, open-source program WinMerge, which will also compare old/new file versions and merge new code into your old files with the click of a button.

Please select the link below that describes the version you are updating to version 2.3:
