Buying a Skin/Theme

Recommended Posts

I am interested in buying a skin/theme whatever you call them, not sure what the difference is.

The one I am interested in is called uniform, my question is can the overall colour scheme be change from the purple you have in demo site, to another colour and also can the font be changed as well?

Many thanks

Hello,

Skins and themes are the same thing - they're just different terms :)

The purple background in Uniform can be replaced with your own image via FTP.

The font can be changed in ipb_styles.css - it's just regular css but you may need to edit a few classes if you want to increase the global font size. This process will be easier in 4.x :)

Hope that helps!

Hiya

Yes I think that answers my questions, sorry don't no what the reverse term is for an IT Techie/geek, but that will be me, but I think I have a handle on it, so will now go and purchase said Skin/theme.

Thank you

Oops forgot to ask, you say I can upload my own background picture via FTP, will this tile the background area or will it show just one copy of that picture?

Also can it be set up that the background pictures scrolls through several pictures?

Finally I have just purchased this Skin/Theme, and the purchase is now awaiting your staffs approval, do you as a company upload it to my account or do I have to upload it to my account and if so does it come with instructions that are idiot proof?

Once again many thanks for your help and advice

Hello,

Orders are automated, so you should already have access to your theme in the Client Area. :)

Uniform comes with a background picker, so your members can choose their own image from a predefined range. A "random" background feature isn't included with the theme.

By default, the image doesn't tile - but you can change that if necessary. Feel free to post in the Customer forum if you need help!

A tutorial already exists for installing 3.x skins. :)

Thank you, even I managed to do that, I shall now try to upload some background images, but can you please tell me if the Six background images that come with the Skin can be either removed or changed?

Right i'm back again, I have uploaded an image to my FTP account, and then copied its http url into the address box of the change background section, but when I click change, all that happens is the background goes completely jet black, what am I doing wrong please?
