Solved Can't switch to PHPBB3 (Apperance problem)

Post by Lioth on April 7th 2013, 6:45 am

I decided to switch my forum into PHPBB3 but I want all the images to remain the same. So I exported a previous modified PHPBB2 skin that I've been using with only images to copy. When I turned into PHPBB3 there were too many errors (like logo not centered and topics, posts, names, are all messed up. Now I'm thinking that they're very different.

There are differences in the phpBB 2 version and phpBB 3 version. They use different CSS elements.

P.S. You need to install a phpBB 3 theme from hitskins directly not in the administration panel.

But I don't like the style of their skins. I only want the renewed CSS elements, and not the appereance. I don't want the apperance to change. Could that be possible? I tried installing a phpbb3 skin and modying it to my old pics but it didn't work out. Also, the text are pretty big, this and that, dunno how to customize that. Should I import my phpbb2 skin? Maybe you can edit all of it and fit it onto phpbb3.

I'm just after phpbb3's css elements anyway. Some aren't possible in phpbb2, hope you know what I mean. My point is, please spare my old skin appearance.

Thats not possible. As SLGray already mentioned install specific skins for specific versions directly from hitskin.com
