Where did you get the theme style? Does it include installation instructions?

Does phpBB • Installing & Using Styles help?

might help if you gave us a link to where we can see this style. ( In phpBB they are called styles, not themes. )

thanks,
robert

From the banner on that page,
RocketTheme wrote:RocketTheme phpBB Club Styles are not compatible with phpBB 3.2.
I'd say it is a no-go because it is way outdated and doesn't appear to be maintained.

Yep it's a 3.0 style so it won't work. You need to ask for a refund.

What is de-updating a phpbb?
If you mean restoring your board to phpBB 3.0.x >>> the restore your backup - you cannot simply modify a 3.3 database back to 3.0

or, you could do the smart thing and take your $19 loss and install a style that is up to date with phpBB.
basically it looks like prosilver dark found here:

"In some variants has a colour scheme that is somewhat reminiscent of" =/= "basically looks like". :lol: The two styles are dramatically different in several obvious respects. Quantive is actually quite an interesting design that I hadn't seen before, and very well executed.

Although, I do agree that unless the OP is up to doing the relevant coding themselves they would be better off installing a working 3.3. style, and Prosilver Dark is one of the better ones.
