Style Add-On that doesn't look right

edited March 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I just installed vanilla on my godaddy account. I downloaded a style that I thought would look more like my own site (soulscape_red). This is the path I uploaded the files to: /thinktank/themes/vanilla/styles/soulscape_red. I went to Themes & Styles, chose vanilla as the theme and soulscape_red as the style, clicked apply this style to all users and save. Its ugly. I know I just don't know what I'm doing, but could someone please give me a hint what I did wrong or what else I still need to do? Here's the url to my forum, I left it ugly so you can see what I mean: Thanks for any help someone can give me.


  • is "/thinktank/themes/vanilla/styles/soulscape_red/vanilla.css" the actual full path to your style? I'd be surprised...
  • yes, I pasted that link directly from my FTP. When I installed vanilla, it asked me to name the installation folder, I named it thinktank.
  • Well if you browse to it gives me a 404, wheras browsing to gives me a stylesheet. You sure you uploaded it correctly?
  • there was no vanilla.css included with the soulscape_red files I downloaded. Should there have been? Or was I supposed to copy the soulscape_red files directly into the styles/default/ directory instead of creating a separate directory for soulscape_red.
  • Hold on, which download did you use?
  • I used the last one on the second page that includes red. It is New Apr 10th 2006. I went back and downloaded the one updated Jul 25th (further up on the page) and took that vanilla.css. I uploaded it and it is now working! I still have one problem though, before logging in it still looks ugly.
  • No, never mind that last part, I refreshed and it now looks fine. I guess that one download needs the css added to it. Thanks for your help
  • Np...
  • I'm still having a slight problem with my forum not looking right. It looks fine when you go to the forum: It looks ugly when you click to sign in: and it looks fine after you sign in, but not when you sign out.
  • You sure you have the people.css file too?
  • probably not, thanks for letting me know which one I need!
  • you were right, it was missing. It's working great now. Thanks again.
