  • Not sure how to install a new theme into phpBB? Lost with the official documentation? Read on!

    Software: phpBB
  • Once you have found the theme that you want for your phpBB forum, download the zipped file.
  • Extract the zipped folder.
  • Log into your site via FTP. If you don't know what that means, see this guide.
  • On the local site side of your FTP software, navigate to the folders you just unzipped.
  • On the remote side of your FTP software, do the following:
    • double click on public_html
    • double click on styles
    • Now right click on the folder/s you extracted earlier and select upload. All of the theme elements will now be uploaded to your forum, into the styles folder.
  • Once that is done, go to your website.
  • Go to your admin control panel.
  • Click on Customise
  • Click on Install Styles
  • Click Install Style

All done!
