Template trouble

I'm in the midst of upgrading from 2.4 to 3.0 and prefer the templates from 2.4. I've copied a few of them from my 2.4 installation to the 3.0 area, with mixed results.

I thought I read a post somewhere that said the older style templates were available for use with 3.0 - if true, where can I find them?

Also, is there an explanation somewhere of how the various templates fit together? Something like a list of what each template is used for and which pages it is used on.

Thanks for any info.

Mark

Also, can someone tell me which templates are used on the main forums page? My list of Forums works, but the list of Recent Topics is coming up blank.

Thanks
Mark

Hi Mark, you see on the last side the link to the Templates? And in your setup_options.php, i think, you must set $startPageModern=FALSE; Try it please, i am not sure ;-)

Mark Wilkins:
which templates are used on the main forums page?

For the Old-school layout, they are

main_forums.html
main_forums_cell.html
main_forumgroup.html
main_last_discussions.html
main_last_discuss_cell.html

For the modern layout, they are

main_modern_layout.html
main_modern_fcell.html
main_modern_lcell.html
main_modern_stitle.html

Thanks for all the info, very helpful, I'm in good shape now.

One last question, just out of curiosity, what is main_last_discuss_more.html used for?

Thanks

It's for "extra" navigation pages which appear on the first page, i.e. forum/2/ , forum/3/ etc. - it's the common template for displaying header/footer in these sections.
