      skin a board

      I have been appointed the job of skinning a different message board. Im completely lost, because i dont know where to start! theres no upload or anything, and i dont know the path to where the files are. The admin of the site made me a global mod so i could skin it, but do you need to be admin to skin it???? Im in desperate need of help....

      Just dont make it too bright and colorfull. Thats what I hate about ld4all. I like how this board is easy on the eyes.

      I think pOOp is asking how to do it, not how the skin shall be.

      pOOp: Check your PM.
      Are you dreaming?

      You'll need to be an admin, unless he sends you the default template. You upload by whatever method he uploaded the forum; and I have no idea where the files are in the forum. Try templates/<nameofskin> or skin/<nameofskin>, the obvious ones.-

      And finally, if you have a free board you may not be able to skin it anyway. Decent webhosting is required; free services just can't cope usually.
