Post subject: Adding a new Style/Template

How to download and install a new Style

1. find the style you want from the styles section or at or elsewhere.

2. download it to your computer

3. unzip it to your computer, keeping the directory structure intact.
most zip programs have this set as default. ( you want folders and files, not just files , when it is unzipped )

4. using a ftp program, not dreamweaver, frontpage, or your hosting control panel,
upload the complete folder to the templates folder on the server.
( the same place as subSilver is found )

5. make sure that your ftp program is set to auto for upload
make sure that it is not set to change all file names to lower case.
the styles are case sensitive. subSilver is not the same as subsilver

6. go to your admin panel/ styles admin section. click on "ADD"
now on the right hand side, should be your new style.
click on "install"

How to setup your new style

If you want everyone , including yourself and including guests, to use your new style.

1. go to the admin panel/ general config section and choose your new style from the
dropdown menu.

2. check the radio button to yes for over ride user.

If you want everyone , including yourself to be able to choose between this or other styles.

1. select the style you want guests to see by choosing it in the drop down menu.

2. select no for override user.

3. go to your profile and select the style you wish to use. ( your members will be able
to do this as well.
