Follow these easy steps to create a unique custom theme for your forum:

1. Change to your forum's /data/thm directory.
cd forum/data/thm


2. Create a new folder for your theme, say "myskin".
mkdir myskin


3. Copy the files you want to change from the default theme directory (please do not copy everything!). For example, if we only need a different CSS file:
mkdir myskin/tmpl
cp default/tmpl/forum.css.tmpl myskin/tmpl/


4. Edit the copied files, and apply your changes. Also, remove all sections ({SECTION:...}) that you haven't changed for your theme.

5. Navigate to your forum's "Admin Control Panel" -> "Theme Manager". Enter your theme's name, say "myskin", select "myskin" as the "Template Set" and select both "Default" and "Enabled". When done, click "Create".

6. Click "Rebuild all Themes" and return to your forum to see the changes.

Good luck!
