Solved How to modify a secondary theme?

Post by LadySibella on Mon Oct 20, 2014 3:21 am

Hello,

I added the option "Select Theme" to my forum, so that members could have an alternate theme if they do not want to use the main one.
I succeeded to set up an alternate theme, that I chose from "HitSkin". The one I chose was:

http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/need-for-speed-underground-english/100053

But I would like to change its buttons, icons, banner, and background each time I choose to just like I'm able to do with the main/default theme that I have on (I do change my main theme background, buttons, etc... to reflect the seasons)

The problem is that when I tried to do so for this alternate theme, it always does it on my default instead of doing it on my alternate theme. What am I missing?

Is this function also available for an alternate (added) theme? If, so how do I access it?

I would like to mention that I'm not a computer geek, so technical terms can quickly become confusing for me Shocked .

Thanks for your help!  Very Happy

I believe you would not be able to edit the themes in a theme picker.

Hello LadySibella,

The theme picker loads a sheet of "styles", these styles consist of colors, fonts, and maybe some background images. However, the theme picker cannot load images of that selected theme, such as : buttons, backgrounds, post icons...

Thank you St Gray and Ange for your help Very Happy Pity that I won't be able to customize any of the "hitskin" themes... hopefully, one day I'll be good enough with my pc to create my own theme and submit it to Hitskin Wink
