b. unpack the zip file and place the files in their own directory in the /templates/ directory inside your phpBB2 directory. if your server is online somewhere, then you will need to unpack to a directory, then upload it to your server (Make sure that the folder has exactly the same name (case sensitive) as the cfg and css file )

c. go to your admin control panel

d. under “styles admin”, click on the link “add”

e. you will find a list of styles that are present in the templates/ directory but that haven’t been installed to your forum. behind every style, you see an “install” link. click on that link to install the style.

f. if you have done this for all the styles that you wanted to install then have fun! they’re now available to your users, or to you to set as the default style in general administration => configuration”
