Is there anyway to keep all changes/settings even if you change themes?

How do you make it so a description appears under the forums?

Under forum edit options, what does the description, title, and rules do? I assume the description is suppose to do what I asked above, but I don't see it appearing. For title, I have no idea. For rules, I assume rules will appear in the each forums under it, but I don't see it.
What sort of changes? If you mean template edits then not really, the only way would be to use the same template set for all your themes.

Yes, that's what the description should do. If it doesn't appear check the forumbit_depth2_forum template contains {$forum['description']}

The title in is the name of the forum, in your case "News & Announcements".

The rules appear above the thread list, see the Ways to get your questions answered quicker box in the General Support forum here, that's set as the Forum Rules.

The changes I refer to are logos, template adjustments such as rearrangements(unless we can use a different theme with the same template), name changes is last registered, etc.

It appears to be there:
<tr>
<td class="{$bgcolor}" align="center" valign="top" width="1"><img src="{$theme['imgdir']}/{$lightbulb['folder']}.gif" alt="{$lightbulb['altonoff']}" title="{$lightbulb['altonoff']}" class="ajax_mark_read" id="mark_read_{$forum['fid']}" /></td>
<td class="{$bgcolor}" valign="top">
<strong><a href="{$forum_url}">{$forum['name']}</a></strong>{$forum_viewers_text}<div class="smalltext">{$forum['description']}{$modlist}{$subforums}</div>
</td>
<td class="{$bgcolor}" valign="top" align="center" style="white-space: nowrap">{$threads}{$unapproved['unapproved_threads']}</td>
<td class="{$bgcolor}" valign="top" align="center" style="white-space: nowrap">{$posts}{$unapproved['unapproved_posts']}</td>
<td class="{$bgcolor}" valign="top" align="right" style="white-space: nowrap">{$lastpost}</td>
</tr>

The rules do not appear neither.
What's your URL?

I have sent you a PM.
Are you sure you're checking the correct template set?

And for the rules, do you have the Display Method set to Display the rules for this forum on the thread listing ?

What do you mean checking the correct template? Don't do the forum descriptions under Forums & Posts?

How do I check that?
When you're checking for {$forum['description']}, are you checking the correct template set for your theme?

Just above where you write the forum rules.

Yes, I am checking the correct template. However the description does not seem to appear.

Okay. I just set it the rules to display and it works Smile Can't believe I missed that.
So any one else have any ideas?
