  • how do i install a board skin?

    you will want to upload the style's image directory so that is appears as /home/domain/forums/styledir.

    b. Upload the style (XML file) via the vBulletin control panel under Download/Upload Styles.

    i got those two steps, but where's the styledir? That's a pretty stupid question lol but me and this guy trying to help install were confused

      Styledir is pretty much where the image files to your styles are.

      on some it could be X/images/styles/ or just in x/images/

      and if you haven't got a place on your server you've uploaded style image files to, just make one.

            It should be provided within the style zip you got for this style.

                Yeah upload the xml and it'll install the style then go to all style options and change to image paths to link to the folder you just created that contains the style images.

                      You need to contact the style author for the exact instructions for installing the style.

                        that's all it says to do.

                        What do i put in the styledir folder?

                        secondly..

                        what do i put in the image paths?

                          If you do not understand the instructions and need exact instructions you need to contact the style author.

                            I agree, or you need to pay someone to install it for you.
