• Due to an extraordinary current load of development for our small team, and due to the current COVID-19 situation, support and inquiry channels may be delayed. Please allow up to 48 hours for response. We THANK YOU for your patience!
  • Update: Support inquiries are still behind, but are being caught up rapidly while all products are receiving new updates. Thank you for your patience during this period of limited staffing. If you need priority for an issue, it's recommended to fill out a Support Ticket rather than use the forums. However all inquiries via any channel at this website will be addressed as soon as possible.
  • Our new powerful addon, SEO & Index Tools is almost released for Early Access! Early customers will be able to beta test the addon at a lower, locked-in license price. Stay tuned for announcements!

Install & Upgrade

Installing your theme

1. Upload theme files

Upload contents of 'upload' folder to your forum directory. Ensure that the 'styles' folder appears like in the following examples:

(When forum is in the root of your site)
(When your forum is at an added directory, such as /forum, /forums, or /community.)

2. Access your forum Admin page

3. Access 'Appearance' -> 'Styles'

4. Click the 'Import Style' link

Click 'Browse' and select the .xml file included in your /xml/ folder in your download package. The .xml file will be in the format:

5. Click 'Import'

Your theme will be processed and installed for use.

Configuring your theme to receive updates

The following is highly recommended when using our themes to allow you to overwrite your theme with future updates, while retaining your customizations. Note that failure to use this method may result in updates which erase your changes.

6. Go back to your 'Styles' page

Click on the name of your newly instally theme, and rename it as you choose, such as: 'Theme Name - Parent'

7. On the top right of your 'Styles' page, click on 'Create New Style'

8. Select your newly installed theme as the 'Parent Style'. You may use the regular style name for this child-style.

9. Click 'Save Style'. The system will now automatically create a child-style of your new theme, which will be identical.

10. Disable user selection of the parent style by de-checking its checkbox.

11. If you wish to use your new theme as the Default Style, be sure to visit Admin -> Home -> Options -> Appearance

You should now make all your customizations, including Style Properties, Theme Settings, Templates Edits, and Custom CSS, in the child-style. We recommend you do not make any changes to the parent style.

When upgrading, simply overwrite the parent style to introduce the new changes, without affecting your customizations in the child-style.
