Note - Many of our club products contain specific styling for our plugins. These styles cannot be transferred from one product to another; they are integrated into the design. The same plugin is used on all installations, the themes themselves contain the styling overrides. If a particular theme does not include unique styling for a particular plugin, then the default style is used.
