Custom phpBB Themes?

Post by IronAndSteel on August 28th 2010, 3:02 pm

I was wondering, if I were to buy a domain name for my forum, would I be able to use custom downloadable phpBB themes, such as this?

Domain name is related to the url of your forum.
www.forumotion.com

Whereas to use downloadable phpbb themes, you will need your own host & the phpbb software installed.

So then there's really no way to have those custom skins while using Forumotion as my host?

Nopes, the only ones you can use are from hitskin.com

Or modify a skin as per your choice.

That's a bummer. I guess I'll have to figure out how to move my forum database over to another host. Thanks for the help. I appreciate it. Smile
