Style Customization

Styles are subcomponents of wpForo themes. For example, in 2022 theme directory (wpforo/themes/classic/) you can find /styles/ folder. This folder contains PHP file with color variables which generates colors.css dynamic file on root directory of the Classic theme. The dynamic wpforo/themes/2022/matrix.css file is being generated by wpForo on first page reload. All files in /styles/ folder are only for theme developers, you should not edit them. If you want to change forum Style or individual colors, you should use five color options located in wpForo > Settings > Colors & Styles admin page.
