How do I import skins? ITS SO FRUSTRATING!

Post by iitzunstable on January 21st 2012, 5:43 pm

Ok, so I just started my own Forum using Forumotion and PHPBB3. I downloaded some Skins/Templates/Themes off of PHPBB3 styles and was hoping I could use it to change the look of my Forum. I then found out that I need to download Filezilla and upload the Styles to my whatever and do all this stuff that I just don't understand. Can someone please give me a dumbed down version on how to import styles/skins to my Forum? All I want is a better Style, that's it. Please help.

Oh, I can't "connect" to Filezilla. I know what to put in the Host field but I don't know what to put into the Username and Password field. Please help. Or if there is a different way of getting new skins, please reply with how to do so. Thanks.

I have not heard of having to use FileZilla to import a new style to your forum. If you go to your Admin Panel > Display > Themes Management. There you can import new themes, but the file has to be a ".bbtheme"

That's all i know, hope this helps.

How do I convert a .cfg style to .bbtheme? Or where do I get .bbtheme styles?

I don't mean to be mean... but how 'bout instead of giving me a warning when I clearly need help, you actually help me or assist me.

Those are all still .cfg styles. I can't use 'em.

I think you can only import themes with .bbtheme extension... Hitskin themes only
