Frustrated or one too many scotchs ???

Post by pulpfriction »

Hi all, am I not thinking too straight here???

I have found a style I want but have absolutely no idea how to download it. I went to 'DOWNLOADS'...but still have no idea...

Each style has a download link included in the post. Just use that...

You need to find the download link and download it to your computer..

Then unzipp (de-compress) the file/style using winzip - you can download that from www.download.com

Then use your FTP and upload the decompressed style to new folder which you must make in your phpbb direcroty onj your database.keeping the structure.

Then you can go to your admin CP and select the new style and make it a default stye if you wish.

PS I'm gonna be here a while if you need any further help as i've been waiting 12 hours for some help with my cashmod mod.

OK, go to the home page ( www.phpbb.com )and then click on styles, then click on downloads

i dont know which style you want so you will have to tell me which section to go to next. ie: colour/hi-teck/imitations etc.

Ok have you got an FTP package? If not I would get SmartFTP from www.download.com and install it, you need it to upload the style to your site.

When you've uploaded all the files i would go to your AdminCP and see if the style is recognised in the AdminCp styles section.
