Hello there,

Q, Is the theme on hitskin ?
A, If NO then this can not be done Unless you make the skin your self on your forum using the items from the files you have.
If YES then please send a link to the skin you wish to add to your site.

Q, was your skin made on a FM site and then passed on to you ?
A, If yes then you need to follow the following steps >>
ACP >> Display Tab >>
   Skins >> Themes management >> Import the skin >> Click inport and then look for your skin you have on your computer.

NOTE: this skin can not be imported from any other forum host sites as we only use skins from Hitskin and no other forum skin host sorry.

If your file format is not accepted then I don't think there is anything that can be done.

You will have to add the information (images, CSS, etc.) manually.

Even then, if the CSS was written for another forum host the selectors to style the elements could be different. This means that you'll have to improvise where needed by gathering the correct selectors for your forum version.

It is best to exactly go to Hitskin and install a theme.  You do know that most of that forum is done by modifications that can not be imported/installed.

^^ This

Even if a bbtheme is supplied not everything is transferred. By choosing Wholestyle the following content can be imported to another forum :

  • Images
  • Colors
  • CSS stylesheet


The following content cannot be imported by bbtheme :

  • JavaScript Files
  • Templates

This member sent me the skin and i looked over it and the theme was not going in the forum. the problem is it is not the right format for our forum. That is why it will not go in he's forum i did try and tell this member that without the file being on hitskin this will not work.

Im not 100% sure why this member is saying it was gave to them from some other forum of FM as the file was asked to be down loaded from a file that had nothing to do with our forums at all.

I did all i could to get this file to work but as the file was not a file our forum will take there is nothing we can do.

APE
EDIT: when the file was Emailed to me it was a link to a download file and not a file that was made for our forums.
This is why the file was not took by our forums system i have told this member that there is nothing we can do.
