Upload the files in the package to the same folder as SMF.

then, what to do next?

by package, you mean the unzipped folder of the compressed one?

put it in the folder where SMF is, you mean put it where the SMF index is?

thanks, it's just a little bit confusing. :-*

I meant, unzip the archive you download.  You should have a "Themes" directory from what you unzipped.  Upload that to the same place as index.php for the forum - you'll notice it has a "Themes" directory as well.

yes, there is a themes folder in the SMF, so, I need to upload the unzipped folder (from the downloaded archive) to SMF, which might overwrite some files in the original "Themes" folder (maybe not, because with different file name?)

I did as what I said above, so what shall i do to change the language???

thank you for your answer. ???

You don't have to install it.  Once uploaded, it is available and as installed as it needs to be.  Simply select the language in your Server Settings to make it the default.

Furthermore, had you uploaded it before installation, you would have been able to use the installer in Spanish as well.

I'm afraid that, as far as I know, there is currently no UBB.classic converter.  I think it was requested once, but I'm not sure.

I'm afraid that some of the languages, including Spanish, do not include translated help files yet.

No language file related changes were made, unless I'm forgetting something.

After installing the package in English, now i want to convert it to Finnsh..
I downloaded the Themes folder in the same location as index.php.

Somebody has mentioned to change the server setting before. How do i do that ?

Please do let me know, i am very new to this software.

Thanks

If you have uploaded the files in the smf_1-0-3_finnish archive, you just have to go to Admin -> Server Settings and change the language.
