  • How do I change skin?

    I just purchased a pre made skin and now I am having issue with actually installing and changing the skin.

    I uploaded the .xml file. What do I do next? What needs to happen in order for me to see the new skin?

    This sounds simple but having a hard time... there should be an option that should say "switch theme" or something.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Dan I am likely not the one to answer this but I shall ask.

    Have you went to your adminCP and Choosen under Vbulletin Option the Style & Language Settings and then choosen the pet name of your new skin in the drop down menu in default style?

    You can also choose this from the main index page of your forum in the lower left corner if all is installed correctly and named and there is a drop down there that allows you to view the skin.

    Finally you can also go to and change the names to your own domain and forum location here and the styleid from 2 to the applicable one you are looking to see.

    So there you have it three options that may help you.

    Hope this helps
