Modifying CSS.. not going so well

Post by Raden on January 23rd 2011, 11:29 am

Hi

I downloaded a really nice PHPBB3 theme from awesomestyles.com and I have all the CSS files so I tried copying and pasting everything from the CSS files but it did not turn out AT ALL.. I'm really lost for what to do. Can I import them or something?

Hello Raden,

I am not an expert in CSS, but I am pretty sure you can import your theme onto your forum. To do that, please go to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Display Tab
3. Themes management (on the left, under Skins)
4. Scroll down until you see "Import the skin"
5. Browse for your downloaded theme and install

Note: It will replace your current theme and should it go wrong, then it will mess up your forum. So, as a precaution: please export your current theme as a back up! Very Happy

Regards,

Base

Well.. there isn't one file for it that I can tell...
There's a bunch of HTML files, a bunch of CSS files, and a couple .cfg files.. do I import the folder or what? :S

Thanks, but I'm still confused.. the folder that has the CSS files has about 30 different css files..
argh why does this have to be so complicated D:

Themes downloaded from other sites aren't compatible with ForuMotion forums. You'll have to get a theme from www.Hitskin.com
