A Tiki theme has at least a stylesheet file (a CSS file such as New_look.css) — and may have associated images. This file is what gives the theme its name. The theme may also have template files (New_look/tiki.tpl for example).
Theme stylesheets (.css files) go in the styles/ directory of the Tiki site. The images used in the theme — contained in a directory with the same name as the theme — also go in the styles/ directory.
Any custom template files used by the theme (in a directory with the same name as the theme) go in the Tiki site's templates/styles/ directory.
People with ftp access to their web site can un-archive/un-zip the new theme package on their local computer and then upload the files/directories to the appropriate directories on their server.
The files for a new theme called New_look would be uploaded like this:
Stylesheet file and images:
- New_look.css (CSS file)
- New_look/ (background.jpg, logo.jpg, etc.)
- New_look/ (tiki.tpl, tiki-top_bar.tpl, etc.)
People with shell accounts can transfer the files to the appropriate directories normally.
