How To Install And Customize Styles

You'll find a variety of different styles/templates available for use on your Icy Phoenix website, but sometimes you may not find the variation you are looking for.  Many Icy Phoenix users edit a style to suit their needs and this is perfectly acceptable.  You should be happy with your site's layout and design.  This guide will help guide you when installing new styles and customizing your style.

  1. Download the style you would like to use.
  2. Unzip the file and upload to: ip_root/templates/
  3. Go to your Administration Control Panel (ACP): ACP -> Styles and Templates -> Install Styles
  4. Find the style you uploaded and wish to install.  Click install.


 installstyle


Editing a style to suit your graphical needs is easier in the new Icy Phoenix.

You will find a few different files in your specific style folder that allow for color changes as well as graphics changes.  These files are:

  • /templates/../style_YOURSTYLE.css
  • /templates/../style_YOURSTYLE_colors.css
  • /templates/../common.css
  • /templates/../default.cfg


Generally, .css files control colors and some graphics.  .cfg files control graphics.

Without "cramping your style", this is a simple change to show you how you would change something like the background color of your style.

OPEN: /templates/../style_YOURSTYLE.css

FIND:

Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
/* main selectors */
body {
    background: #ffffff;
    /*background: #ffffff url('images/ice/bg_body.gif') top left repeat-x;*/
    margin: 0px 0px 0px 0;
    padding: 0px 10px 0px;
}


REPLACE WITH:

Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
/* main selectors */
body {
    background: #000000;
    /*background: #ffffff url('images/ice/bg_body.gif') top left repeat-x;*/
    margin: 0px 0px 0px 0;
    padding: 0px 10px 0px;
}


We just changed the background from white to black by changing this value:

Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
background: #ffffff;


 changecss

Feel free to change anything and everything to the colors you desire.

well no problem, I found out what causes that error, it was that I installed and 'Orange Theme' that I found in other website, it must be damegd or somethin. Now I know I'm only going to download templates of this site

This is a message to all the users:
Do not dowload themes or mods for IP of other webs, you are never sure if they work fine.




See ya all

Already answered in the other topic...

Currently colorized styles could not be renamed but they replace only the original template (unless you edit paths, CFG and CSS on your own).

So if you created a colorized template, just replace original files for the template you have edited and then hit CTRL + F5 in your browser.

For example if you edited mars_attack you then need to upload all style files into templates/icy_phoenix/ where original Mars Attack template files are located.
