    Did the template not come with installation directions?

    Sometimes templates self install. Have you gone into Configuration to see if you can set it as the default style? If you've done that and failed, what is the name of the template and where did you get it?

    Nevermind, I reread your second post and got the where/what details. I downloaded and uploaded the style to my test forum and had no problem. A few suggestions (and no, I'm not insulting your intelligence, but always start with the path of least resistance):

    1. Have you gone into File Manager through your CPanel to make sure the style uploaded to your forum/templates directory?
    2. Are you sure you unzipped it before you uploaded?
    3. In your forum's admin panel, did you go to Styles Admin > Add to install?
    4. What (if any) MODS have you added to your forum?
    5. Have you tried a fresh download/upload? (Some downloads from phpbb.com have been a little buggy, lately.)

    If you've tried all this and still no success, I'm willing to take a shot at it for you if you'd like.

    hi,

    i certainly dont see it as insulting cuz its new for me and i only wanna learn from it as i can make mistakes as well.
    but i looked at all again and finally i saw the problem, u where right about the downloads from phpbb.com i tested it by taking another template and that was fine.
    thx alot for ur tips and help, really appreciate it.

    Glad to help. You can usually find the same styles at phpbb.de or phpbbstyles.com if the one at phpbb.com doesn't work.
