Just a simple question

Hello everyone,

I just have a simple question, how do you install a style? Simple as that.

Ok, I got an e-mail from my old host on how to install a style. Basically they said "Download the style of your choice from one of the following sites: {2 sites that have phpBB styles on them, go onto your file manager on Host Gator, upload the file to the 'Styles' folder and then go onto your ACP and change the style from there".

So I did so. I went onto phpBB3styles.net (Or whatever it is), downloaded Christians "Absolution" style zip folder, Logged onto my Host Gator, went to the file manager, the styles folder, uploaded the absolution download and then went to my phpBB ACP but it wasn't there. Am I missing something? Is there something I need to do?

Thank you.

You should use FTP not your file manager and you have to unzip the file before uploading it.

You should ask them.

Usually on things like that if it's free you put up with a pop up every time you use it or you have a limited number of uses before you have to pay.

Or, in windows, just right click the file and say compress or extract.
