Trouble with the 'add multi-themes to your forum' tip/trick

Post by Zarayna on February 29th 2012, 1:29 am

I tried using the HTML code for a skin selector found here. While it seemed simple, I encountered a bunch of problems. In the end, I was utterly unable to install it properly.

In section 2, you will see the URL http://testorial.forumotion.com - Change that to the URL Of your forum.
You will see 5 numbers proceeding the URL, change that to the numbers we recorded earlier ( 1 per line ) as that is your next theme.

Here was the first problem I encountered. In the second section (and in the entire thing for that matter) the URL 'http://testorial.forumotion.com' never appears.

The second problem was the statement 'You will see 5 numbers proceeding the URL, change that to the numbers we recorded earlier ( 1 per line ) as that is your next theme.'

I am not sure where five numbers were recorded earlier in the tutorial, except perhaps here (six numbers were recorded, not five),

The theme I'm going to use is Twilightsaga-4ever.com by iwkzy

In the URL Bar you will see the address http://demo.nicetheme.com/index.htm?theme_id=153102
We need this reduce specific address to just the numbers so its just 153102


Now, grab the CSS Code by adding in a css grabber -ltr.css .
Now we configure the theme by this way /153102-ltr.css

Now were ready to configure this to our forum
SUPPORT FORUM CODE:
http://address_of_your_forum/153102-ltr.css

Also a problem is that nowhere in the code given could I find five lines with a number at the end of each.

I
n your note pad, modify this script to YOUR HTML Page, Ill also show you a neat trick.
SUPPORT FORUM CODE:
<script src=/h9-></script>

Just replace the '9' with your number.

Notice how short that URL is? Why is it?
Mainly because you don't need the URL of your forum, it automatically loads that, and the code is loaded form the/h9-, anything after that is just made to look fancy. Keeping it short and simple

What is meant by 'YOUR HTML Page'? Is it meant that I should add it on to the end of the page I made for the script? Also, what is 'my number' supposed to be?

Final step:
Navigate to: General > Forum Description > Insert the URL we made just above, and save.

What is 'Forum description'? I could not find it anywhere.

I got it to work partially, in that if I went to the URL of the HTML script, it would show, but i could not get it to show up on the forum itself.

So yes, I could use some help as to what exactly I am supposed to do in the script, as quite frankly, the tutorial makes no sense at several points, or at least, I am unable to comprehend any sense within it.
