edited January 2009 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
HOORAY!! I have the very basic version of Vanilla up and running on my site, and am ready to get to work.. My first question (sorry if I become a pest in the beginning here) is regarding themes and styles... a) Can I go ahead and set up the structure of my site before picking a theme and style? Or will I possibly have conflict if I go about this before setting up the 'look' of my forums? b) most of these themes and styles come with images.. If I like the colors and feel of a theme and style, but want to add my own images, is this possible, and if so, how is it done.. and what are the rules/limitations? While I wait for a reply, I'm off to install some of the add ons I've selected... My first ever forum! Exciting!

    Excellent! I'm glad you got it all working. Vanilla has some great documentation which I'm sure will help answer most of your questions about themes.

    As for modifying: some themes may have their own rules about this, but keep this in mind: give credit where it is due. Don't steal something and say it's yours.

    How hard is it to create themes from scratch with only basic html knowledge? Can I just load these things into GoLive and start moving things around, or do they have to be hand coded?

    I have a gneral layout and look I'd like, but there's nothing really close that I can see in the available themes..

    And how do I give credit?... only too happy to do so... I'm not after any awards or praise.. I just want to build a successful community in the cyberspace marketplace of ideas.. :-)

    BTW, thanx for responding to my questions... Much appreciated...
