  • Exporting Styles..

    If I make a custom skin on a test forum..how would I transfer that skin to my regular forums? Do I do an import XML file or something? If so, how?

    Download the style from your test forum:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Download / Upload Styles

    Then go to the same section on your regular forum and import the downloaded xml file. You need to manually upload any images that accompany the style.

        One other question. How would I go about making this custom skin able to use its own images directory etc so that when users select the old skin it's not intermingled with images from the new skin...cause right now when I uploaded the xml file and made the skin I created a choice the new images are used on the old skin as well...but I want them to be totally separate...like the new skin uses its own images and the default skin uses its own images...does this make sense?

          Just set the image paths on this skin to wherever you have uploaded these images.
