In progress Conversion of a PHPBB3 Skin

Post by Raingazer on August 14th 2011, 12:09 pm

I hope I'm posting in the right board. > <

***

I've been wondering, is it possible to convert a PHPBB3 Skin (w/c is found around the net) to Forumotion? I can't use other skins because they will not work on Forumotion and I don't want to be stuck on Hitskins. I've read somewhere that it is possible and they've also mentioned that it's difficult. If it's truly possible, can someone help me?

Thanks in advance!

It's NOT possible because non-Hitskin phpBB3 skins require installation of PHP scripts, and you can't do that on forumotion -- or for that matter, on any other free board. Here on forumotion, the only thing usable in those skins are their images. However, you would need to upload the images to Servimg (or other image host), and then install them one-by-one in the Admin Control Panel.

whats the skin,

You would just have to customize your boards appearances as close as possibly.
But it would help if we can see what skin you r talking about because it may be a easier way of setting it up depending?

Ah. Well, it's because there's this thing called 'templates' and I don't know how to put them up because they're not.. images, I think.

Click me!

get a green subsilver style theme under themes in your ACP.
then what ever you have in all of them html files, you probably have all the images and everything else you would need in them files.

so you would just have to upload and add the images where you can, and or create css and add that way as well.

Now you might not get it 100% exact, but i am sure you can get it close.

Also give me the link where you downloaded it and i will take a look at the files as well. As long as it's a free for use which it dose appear to be be.

Oh you probably have the whole style sheet with the download too.
