    skins/templete installation prob.

    so i went 2 this site where i can get free skins 4 my forum....well i downloaded a real nice one and saved it and unzipped it etc etc.

    i waz lookin' at the installition instructions in the "readme" notepad thing and first step im already lost! Whats a FTP? and where can i get one? also how does it work and why do i need one?


    Da text read.......:
    b. upload the .tar skinpack
    Simply use your favorite FTP program to upload the tar-file (in binary) to the "archive_in" directory of your board......

    it continues but i doubt its of any importance 2 u guys with my problem bein' "what is a ftp? and where can i get one?"

    Re: skins/templete installation prob.

    Hi BadNews,

    Firstly, an FTP programme is a File Transfer Protocol Proramme and it does just what it says....transfer files from one place to another!

    Secondly, you can get pretty decent ones for free, just try a quick google search or i recently used www.smartftp.com

    Thirdly, i haven't got a clue how it works exactly but you don't really need to know that. Its just a means of uploading your webpages to a chosen server! You don't necessarily need one. That depends on yoour hosting service. Some have there own control panels to upload your files.

    Hope this helps.
