Solved How to change the skin of the forum?

Post by Shah Chelsea Hazel on Wed 5 Feb - 15:35

Hi. I am trying to change the skin of the forum, but all the main content of the forum is acting as side-bars. And the middle portion is left empty. Can someone help me to apply this theme:http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/swing-life-away-200868.htm to the forum? Can you give me a step by step method please? I'm kind of new at this..

Thanks.

Hi,

Read this: http://help.forumotion.com/t17277-hitskin-how-to-install-properly

After if there is still errors, we can fix them with CSS, which I'll provide after school. Lol

Hello. So, I followed the directions, and I installed the theme. But it looks like this:

http://livethemagic.forumotion.org/

I mean, all the middle content is towards the left under the widgets. Please help!

It looks like this:


All that content is supposed to be in the middle. I don't know what's wrong. I tried installing the theme a couple of times, but it still shows up this way.

Which theme is it? Can you link me from hitskin, thank you.


Also, have you tried placing the widgets only in one side? Try that and let me know if that changes anything.

This is the theme we're using: http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/swing-life-away-200868.htm

Yes that worked. Moving the widgets to one side. But can't I put them to one side?

Do you mean to both sides? Also, I think is a widget either on the left or right side that is causing that. Which are the widgets you've created?

Is your forum version phpBB 3?

If it is, try this:

1. Install the default phpBB 3 theme.
2. Then install the theme you want.

Try SLG's suggestion, if that doesn't work, try this suggestion: add one by one for the widgets on the left and see which one causes the effect. It's a code that is interfering with one another... Evil or Very Mad

Thank you so much guys!! It's all fixed now! It was the "Welcome" widget causing all the trouble. Could you tell me what is wrong with the code?

Code:
<span style="font-size: 11px; line-height: normal">Live The Magic (LTM) is a Harry Potter Roleplaying Site. You can register as a student and get sorted into the house which suits your character the best. Or you can register as an adult and get a job at the Ministry of Magic or at Hogsmeade or at Hogwarts! Registering as any of characters in the book is not allowed, because we are set in 2028, so all of them are dead. Create your own character and truly live the magic. Any queries, help, doubts, anything at all, just PM one of the admins and they'll reach out to you as soon as possible. <br /> </span>

Is something wrong with this? It doesn't seem like there's anything wrong.. O.o

Yes, it's functioning fine now. I think it was probably some other widget. Thank you Smile
