I've download the SimpleRed theme from xoopsland. I've decompressed (.zip) and zipped again in .tar.gz format.

When i try to upload the teme to my 2.4.4 XOOPS, i cannot:

ERROR: Template file not found

And if i try to upload thru FTP to the /themes folder, the themes manager on the administration menu, cannot found the theme

What i'm missing?


Re: XOOPS 2.4.4

Have you tried unzipping it on your server with your ftp app, and if so, what's the file structure?
Never let a man who does not believe something can be done, talk to a man that is doing it.

Repacking to .tar.gz is for templates, but not for themes!

Humm, seems the zip file has not a good file structure.
Proceed as follows:
- Unpack the zip file on your local PC in a temporary directory.
- Create a directory on the server in the themes directory eg simplered (or anything you want).
- Upload all files (with FTP) from the temporary directory to /themes/simplered/
Watch for proper alignment: you have to have /themes/simplered/theme.html
- Then select the theme in the general preferences or from the theme selection block (activated in admin blocks).
