Whenever I go to install a theme, it never works, it sais it installs, I select it, but it shows all the links in a column, no styling whatsoever. I checked the images path multiple timex, reinstalled multiple times, and it still doesnt work.
How you are installing themes and what is you SMF version ?
Are you certain the themes you are installing are for your version of smf? You can not use 1.1.x themes in a 2.0 version.
I am completely sure I am downloading the right version, I am using OverviewLight for 2.0, on SMF 2.0 RC1.2, which is the version of the theme. I have installed them different ways, using the ZIP and making the folder and placing files int it.
Can anyone help?
Can you please link to the exact theme you are trying to install so that I can run a test install. It might also help if you can upload a What is phpinfo.php? (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=18250.0) file and link to it.
The theme link is:
For the phpinfo.php file:
Try switching to the default theme before you do the install and install from a file.
If you like you can create me a temp admin account and I can try to look into this further.
