So this site is on a very old version and needs to be updated. I have installed a new version and ran the converter... everything appears to work but our:

theme / template / style

does not transfer to the new version as styles are done totally different.

So anyone want to volunteer to work a style that will work with the newer version?

here is the test site... should be able to login with same info.

I have no idea how to do the styles, does it require PHP knowledge or is it like a GUI based thing?

Let me know if you need ftp access.

Also wondered at what point do we switch over... wait for full theme, just the header of site fixed and progress from there, or just do it now and we fix it as we go?

Thoughts?

I will need FTP access, you can PM me the details or e-mail them to me?

Not sure on the other question of when to do the change... Any one else have thoughts? Or know who did the original FSIC theme?

that was the theme you are looking at now Razz

PHPBB has radically changed how themes are done and we need a new one created from the old.

Ah I see. Ok so I guess I need to get the old style and export it via FTP, then download a new PHP board style and edit it by hand using it as a template?

I can't seem to figure out this PHP theme stuff. I've tried a few things but the graphics and such all come out looking like garbage. Anyone else want to take a crack at this? Web Dev was never among my specialties...

After reading all the PHP Theme crap, I think I'm just going to dump it all on to my Desktop and just start digging into it. I think hands on instead of book learning at this point may get me farther lol.

I cannot figure out quite how to get the themes working properly. I've tried running it through a conversion with no luck. Someone else needs to try and tackle this. Any takers?
