Not Supported Uses Plugins  

The Quick style chooser relies on sessions rather than updating the actual user's settings. This means when you want to see what skin a user is using, it's usually not correct. Since most users tend to change skins using just the Quick Style Chooser, this plug-in updates their settings to match it. It's specifically for use with my skin view plug-in, but also could be handy for other forums. Simply install it using the product manager.

Note: This will not update a user's settings until they re-visit your forums. It is also said to fix issues with psiStats giving inaccurate results.

Update: This now lets users easily reset their options back to the default style.

You're free to do what you like with this code, although credit is appreciated, it's not required.

As mentioned in the other thread, you should wrap <if condition="$post[stylename]"> </if> round it, so you'd have:

<if condition="$post[stylename]">Style: $post[stylename]</if>

If your site uses the 2 column view like vbulletin.org does, then you need to edit postbit_legacy.

Thanks for this (install it later), never understood that this isn't vbulletin default because how should the default user know it's only a temporary change if he use the quick style chooser?

Ramsesx, yes I agree. I guess it saves writing to the database when people are just checking out the other skins. I guess there should really be a notice saying it's only a temporary change and with a link/button to save the changes. But for most forums, this plug-in will be effective enough, as it only updates the database when needed.

Thanks, I'll check it out. Does it change their actual style, or it just shows up in the postbit as their style being different?

Just the style name, I had one user report that in the chooser, the name changed, but his style remained visable.
