Xoops.Themes.BackOffice.EVU theme is corrupt

I've downloaded the admin theme EVU from Xoops.Themes.Backoffice area from your website and two UNZIP tools claim EVU is not an archive file. I repeated the download and same results. The two tools were 7Zip and jZip. -Dennis

Re: Xoops.Themes.BackOffice.EVU theme is corrupt

Thanks, Novlang1984 - I did download the file and it unzipped fine.
The only issue is this is not a theme file. I'm reluctant to create modules/.... area as instructed because I'm a newbie to Xoops and don't know how to shift gears yet.

I've just spent several hours working my way out of a major corruption cause by installing a plugin. (nothing to do with EVU)

I was looking for a simpler Admin theme, as the current default presents so many versions of the same thing that I'm in mouse-click overload. That was the reason for exploring EVU.
Are there other Admin themes that will accomplish this?

I agree that there are few ways to get to the goal, but I hope that it is at least consistent, i.e. people who prefer menus can accomplish the same thing as people who prefer icons on the toolbar.

I use actually both ways

If the icon is on top, then it's faster for me, but if I need to go deeper, then menus make it easier as I don't have to leave the screen where I am.

However, improvement suggestions are always welcome.

I understand your point. I will probably want more when I've grown out of the Neanderthal stage.
