Solved Changing the skin

Post by jacks friend on July 9th 2011, 9:34 am

Hi I'd like to change the skin on my forum to a hitskin that I like.

http://gabrielslounge.pro-forums.in/

The above is my forum. But when I try to change the title of the forum comes up as www.jaxstorm.com which is not the title of my forum.

The skin I'm looking at is Entertainment Inc by Sweet G.

How can I change the skin of my forum to this and get the new skin to read The Lounge Music Crimes and other Discussions.

I'd appreciate some help.

Cheers

Done that but when I see the skin in preview it says www.jaxstorm.com not the name of my forum. Everything else is right but not the name.

If I change it and my forum suddenly becomes this jax place how can I change back to the skin I had before?

Install the skin directly from hitskin.com

See if it works.

I tried that as well in preview. Same deal. Still will not preview with the name of my forum.

Maybe it's the skin I'm trying to change to that is the prob? Until I can work this out I'm leaving well enough alone.

Hello,

Are you talking about this skin http://demo.nicetheme.com/forum?theme_id=150105 ?

And this 'forum name'?


That's a photo/logo. After installation you must change it in your admin panel.

It should be found in your AP >> Display >> Pictures managment >> Advanced >> General >> Forum logo
You have to change the picture.

Well damn you got me this far. I honestly didn't know that stuff existed. I've only just become sole admin.

So if I install the new skin I go the above and change the forum logo to what i want?

Is there any way I can preview the entire set up before I commit myself?
