Your drop down style selector allows you to offer more than one style on you website, for your visitors to choose from. It is located at the top left of your screen right after installing WSN Links.
You can select a different style. See how the colors and text change on your website. As you try some of the different styles notice how you are more attracted to certain colors and also that you may find different styles easier to read. This is one of the reasons for offering your visitors a choice of styles. It allows them to personalize your website to their personal tastes and/or vision needs.
To add a style or make changes to a style see Why use Style Sheets? and Creating a New Style for more information.
How to set your default style. From your Administration Panel, under Configuration, select settings. On the Manage Settings screen under General Appearance you will see Default Style and a drop down box. Select the style you want your visitor to see when first visiting your site, before they have made any selections for personal preferences. When you click Update Settings your default style will now be what is loaded automatically when a visitor visits your site.
What if you do not want to offer your visitors different styles? You can do this also. Be sure to still go and set the default style in your settings. Now edit your header.tpl file and remove the style selector from your header. You can still let your members choose a default style or if you only want one style for your members also. Edit your Edit Profile Template (editmembers.tpl) and remove the style selector from this template also.
DO NOT REMOVE the style selectors from any of you administration templates.
