For phpbb3, to redesign, you'll have to do it through the CSS, and javascript. Since there is no access to templates.

Yeah, you edit CSS and change pictures. For extra-awesome design and funny features, use Javascript codes managament and add someone's or your scripts.

Hi ZBiran12,

There is no simple answer or tutorial for it that might give you an answer right away. Install one skin from Hitskin and start removing images for it too see what part of the CSS serves for what and than start changing them and colors. There is no easy way to do it.

Almost every browser has devolper tools you can use to find the CSS for any part of the theme you are making and than change it in your AP

If you make a skin (layout/design) in Photo shop, you have to cut the pictures and install them in CSS and than upload it to Hitskin. It's not only the picture that makes a skin & that is found on Hitskin. What makes a skin are parts of pictures installed in CSS + other CSS setings.
