Solved How do I setup a cutsom design I bought off a different website?

Post by Albogravity on December 2nd 2016, 6:11 am

So I recently have been looking into making a website for my friends arma community, but I'm not that good at coding website or what. I saw that this site offers a free setup and all the essentials I would need. I have seen other Arma community and how they have such nice websites so I was going to go with the same design. I went fro the " Eles - Responsive phpBB 3.1 Theme " and bought it. I'm just having a problem with setting it up onto the forumotion website I created. It has tons of files I don't know what to do with.
Here is a quick gif to show what I'm working with: https://gyazo.com/3061e22eb6a51469cbc6244fb8103dc9
I would imagine most of you guys know what you are doing when it comes to this stuff so I was just wondering how I would even get started? If any of you can help me it would be much appreciated!
-Thanks, Albo

Also my forumotion website is Dtoxgaming.forumotion.com

You should have went to Hitskins and seen if there was a similar theme. You then could have just pressed the installed button.

I just want to switch the design to something I already have on my computer. I have looked through the hitskins and I saw a couple I liked, but then I went more in depth by looking up custom ones that cost money and I found one that I really liked. So if it is possible to go with that look some how that would be great, but I think I would need access to the server files, which I think you guys don't allow. I'm trying to make the website look at professional as possible and I think the " Eles - Responsive phpBB 3.1 Theme " will fit perfectly with that.

Correct: We do not have access to the database.

All I can tell you is:

  • CSS will go in your CSS stylesheet.
  • Images will go in Pics Management.
  • You probably will need to modify your templates.
