If you want to create a skin...

If you want to create a skin (style)...
1. Download phpbb3 here http://www.phpbb.com/downloads/olympus.php (ignore talk about installing it since you just need the template files inside the archive)

2. Open the archive/phpbb3/styles/ and extract either prosilver and/or subsilver2. They are both styles you can as a template to make a new style.

3. Follow the instructions here to get started on making a new style (ignore the instructions on getting prosilver/subsilver2 since you extracted them already): http://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/how-to- ... bb3-style/

4. Now you have to change the images under the imageset folder (and be sure to check subdirectories). Open each one in your graphics editor and make whatever changes you want.

I hear you can use programs like Dreamweaver for live previews and such, although I dunno exactly how. xD
Previews of prosilver and subsilver2:
prosilver http://www.awesomestyles.com/phpbb3-sty ... n&version=
subsilver2 http://www.awesomestyles.com/phpbb3-sty ... subsilver2

When you're done, you just need to put all of "yourname" directory into an archive file such as .rar or .zip and send it to me.

There are other styles you can use as templates on http://www.awesomestyles.com/phpbb3-styles but I'm not sure if they have their own version of step #3 you will need to do to modify...

Good luck! \o/
