style import not working correctly


Active member

When I import a style and select it from my control panel preferences, only the width will change and nothing else, tips appreciated. All the files are uploaded to the styles folder and imported via the admin panel.



For some reason I keep posting in the wrong section...

Well here is what I've currently done after uploading the style.

  • I'll go to account/preferences and change to xenforce

  • go to the home page to view the style and I get this

Same with all the styles.

I have no idea why it's doing that.

These are the steps I took.

1) Download the halloween zip file. Unzip it.

2) Go to:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Import a Style

Click Browse and point it to the XML file inside of the halloween folder. Click Import.

3) Go to:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Styles

Click the radio button next to the halloween style. Now the style is viewable on the main forum page.

Your site is working for me. I visited the URL and clicked the style chooser in the bottom left. I selected Halloween. It's showing the orange colors and everything.
