<--click this image for a working one.

There is quite some installation work needed to install this skin. Please read carefully and work systematically through this guide!


Theme Settings
 
Spoiler: click to toggle


Theme Appearance
 
Spoiler: click to toggle


Theme Images
 


Theme Layout
 
Spoiler: click to toggle


Now, take note of the side menu navigation system. It looks complicated, but it's really very simple. Here's a guide:
Code: HTML
 
<div><span>Exploration</span> <-- this line is the header line. Edit "Exploration".
<a href="index/">Home</a> <-- these, up to </div>, are the links inside the category.
<a href="search/">Search</a>
<a href="boardrules/">Terms</a>
<a href="members/">Userlist</a>
<a href="faq/">F.A.Q.'s</a>
<a href="calendar/">Calendar</a>
<a href="site/">Portal</a>
<a href="pages/pagename/">Pagename (Website Maker)</a>
</div>

Edit carefully, add and subtract segments of the code in a modular fashion, and you'll be done and dusted quick and easy. I'm here to help if you need it :) You need not use all the categories I provided! You may prefer to just have one, or you may use the exemplary ones I provided, or you may add your own in.


Installation Notes
 
  • Take note of the two following Image Sets Misc. Images entries: Navigation Divider, Navigation Marker. You may use what you wish for these, but this is what I used:
    Navigation Divider (copy very carefully there are three spaces either side of the backslash!)
Code: HTML
 
\

Navigation Marker
Code: HTML
 
Viewing:

[*]There are a few images I have not provided, you're welcome to make them yourself (you may indeed remake mine I don't mind!)
[*]If you have any queries, please ask me here, either myself or another experienced user will assist you.[/list]

Great skin! I saw the thread about you working on it, and I couldn't wait for the release!

After trying it out on my board, I just have one question: How do I insert a link into the sidebar without it automatically adding my board's basic domain to the beginning of the link (for example, if my site is apples.com, and I insert a link in the sidebar to peaches.org, if I were to click on it, it would take me to apples.compeaches.org)?

I do apologise .Dre, I'll upload them with less silly filenames and on multiple hosts ASAP. Thanks for the notice.

mkl, that's simple :D I've used what's called relative links. Links that respond to the basic href rule... But that's not what you asked. Essentially, just stick exactly what you want it to link to in there instead, i.e. <a href=""http://yourdomain.tld/dir/page.html">Page</a> as opposed to <a href="dir/page.html">Page</a>.

If that doesn't work, tell me.

Wow.

This is one of the best ZB themes I have seen yet, and I believe it will probably be the best ZB theme for a while. You did an amazing job on it.

Well done. ^_^

Well, that explains it. I had a separate link in before, but no 'http://' at the beginning. Adding that bit in made it work like a charm. Thanks!

I know how you said placing the layout is simple, but I'm clueless.

That's not a problem, if you're new to it all I can see why it wouldn't be the easiest of things to follow. How far have you managed to get, and what do you need help with?

Edit.
I don't think I'll be doing it for IF, sorry. I kinda wanna move onto another new design :)
