No, the theme has to be compatible with Forumotion's CSS.

Yes it does. If you try to do it that way it will just say "import ended" and the theme will not be uploaded.

No No No ! This import feature only works with .bbtheme files ! And such file can be generated ONLY from an export from another forumotion !

But first of all, we don't even know if the style you downloaded is prosilver-based or subsilver2-based !

Prosilver-based : Has several stylesheets
Subsilver2-based : Has only one stylesheet

If it's a prosilver-based, then you can adapt, but you can't paste the CSS AS IS, adaptation is necessary since some classes differ, since FM's phpbb3 version is prosilver-based.

If it's a subsilver2-based, it won't work since the classes and structure are too different : prosilver is tableless, while subsilver2 uses tables and has a look that's closer to phpbb2

Give me the link to the style please, so I can verify !

This style is prosilver-based, but the problem is that the templates are heavily modified, and since we cannot edit templates in the phpBB3 version of FM, you can't get the same appearance.

And since prosilver-based styles have several CSS files, you'll have to merge them for the FM adaptation, but you need solid knowledge in CSS to do it, because otherwise, you'll get headaches because of the fact that background images and colors are on a separate stylesheet while generic colors are used in the other styles and are overridden by the colors stylesheet that comes last, and also by the fact that you'll have to set fixes that are specific for Forumotion.

And, just to add another detail : While on classic phpbB3, the prosilver buttons are all set as background images, the FM ones (navlinks, posting buttons, profile buttons) are set as hard-coded pics using <img /> tags, so it's another difference that's important to consider because you can't use CSS rollover on a hard-coded pic.

The only styles that are natively FM-compatible are those you find on Hitskin.
