Solved Forum Skin Problem

Post by netty on May 14th 2013, 12:45 pm

Hi, having a problem getting rid of a skin so I can get my logo on and change forum colours. Have imported/exported, tried changing direct from hitskin but no matter what skin I choose it always defaults to an original one I put on! I have no clue about css sheets etc etc so I will need a mod to take a look for me my forum address is www.doodlehealthsupport.org and it's version phpBB3 Have to say I never had this problem with phpBB2 Confused
Can anyone take a look and help?
Thank you.

Hello,

I once had this problem but I backed up(theme backup) my forum and then it changes normally after that. Try performing a theme back up on your forum via utilites:

Hi there, thanks for that but unfortunately the only restore points available to me in utilities are to the same skin Confused

Hi,


Have you tried uploading the theme to a test forum? Then collect the codes from it and place it into your forum?

I have no idea how to do that Sad All I want is a totally customisable theme like I had on my phpBB2 forum but just cannot shift the current one Confused

Here is an example of what happens....
Here is a pic of the style I want rid of...


and now I go to Hitskin and install, for instance, prosilver red English ( although the following happens regardless of which skin I install )

and this happens...

Did you try changing the skin again after performing a theme back up via utilities?

Yep and the same happened.

I can preview and install a new skin but the second I try and change anything it defaults back. I also tried replacing the css sheet from a newly installed skin onto the current one and nothing happened.
Is there a mod or admin that can take a look for me?

Hi,

This might be a silly question, but which forum version are you using and what's the forum version of the theme?
