Unable to see newly uploaded Styles

Post by Yggdr » Thu Oct 25, 2018 2:31 pm

Hi everyone,

I've succesfully installed my first Phpbb forum (version 3.2.3).
Then, I've tried to switch around styles, however none of them appear in the 'Install styles' tab.
I've adapted the correct permissions already, but still no luck. Any advice?

Styles i've tried to install are:
IdLaunch Fresh
MyInvision
We_Universal

Any tips? Thanks!

The most common issue is uploading the wrong folder so the hierarchy isn't correct.

If you look at the prosilver folder you'll see it has a style.cfg file and a couple of folders in it.
If you dont see the same layout in your uploaded folders then you haven't uploaded correctly.

If you post a screenshot of your FTP window showing the uploaded folders and their contents we should be able to work that out.

Also if they are 3.1 or 3.0 styles they won't work.

Thank you so much, very stupid mistake. Had an extra folder in between because I unzipped it directly on the file manager.

that is only one of the reasons to not unzip on the server. just not good practice. unzip on your computer and upload the relevant files to their relevant locations using ftp onlyl.
