Solved Issue with Trying out themes

Post by Ascent on October 20th 2010, 9:15 pm

So I am not the founder for the website I am admining which means when trying to update themes I have to go to admin panel and click through pages of themes on the hitskin tab. I can't go to Hitskin website and just install from there cause it says only the founder can. However there are two of the themes marked most popular that I really want to try and I cannot find them in the 50 page list there. They are:

http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/black-gold-132762.htm

and

http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/stylize-darkgrey-en-129813.htm

Is there any way to select these themes without being the founder? I scrolled twice through the 50 pages of themes under the hitskin tab in the Admin Panel with no luck in finding them. I wish there was a search option where I could just type the name of the skin but could not find one.

Is there instructions anywhere on how to change your forum from 3 to 2? IE what would be the process and would it affect all my permissions etc...also do I have to get the founder to do this or can an admin do it?

Hi,

here is a simply list of what the difference is between each version:
=> http://help.forumotion.com/tricks-tips-f32/forum-versions-t50776.htm

PHPBB2 is only better than PHPBB3 because it has template editing, which, you need to be in the founding account to do so Wink
You can change the version at any time, with no repercussions, via:
Admin panel >> Display > Choose a theme > Version
