Make a Theme

Go to the Themes page and click 'New Theme'.

The easiest way to get started writing a theme is to look at an existing theme's CSS:

Example theme

Copy / paste pieces of it into your new theme and play around with the variables to get a different look. After a bit of practice, you should be able to write your own code from scratch.

If you don't already have a subforum you moderate, create one for testing your new theme.

Go to Manage > Appearance to set your theme as the subforum's theme.

Embedding images in your theme is not supported at present.
