    Good, but does not tell me anything. The color scheme loads fine but the theme images are missing.

    You need to upload any related files to your server and/or change the image path directory.

    Why?
    Because you have to upload some image files to a server as part of a theme you are installing?

    From what I can see all of your questions have been answered promptly.

    The software....unless some one here is willing to install the theme for free because I am not spending another cent on this.

    Well installing a style is more or less the same as installing the software.

    Upload the relevant files to the server, import the style, set any configuration (e.g. image path) as necessary, although the last step isn't required if you upload the files to the correct directory as specified in the style settings.

    I really can't make it any clearer or simpler than that.

    Can I have your license if you're not going to use it? :p

    Seriously though, check what path the images are being requested from and be sure you have them in that particular directory.

    Ferryman, installing a theme is part and parcel of every software. Some use a zip file (SM), others upload it in one lump (phpBB) but if you want your own logo, etc, you still have to edit the paths on those or upload an image in the right section.

    Styling and handling styles at the basic level is far easier in XF than in vB. You could simply use the color pallet and just use the original style with color changes. But you still have to upload your own logo.

    I'm sorry you find this difficult. I hope you find someone to help.
