Read the FAQ How do I change the default theme?

Read the FAQ How do I change the logo?

Also make sure you're using a theme that's compatible with the Geeklog version you're running. www.geekdownloads.net should have updated themes if you can't find them here.

Since you're asking, you probably used some auto-installer to install Geeklog for you? It should be on your webspace somewhere. Use some ftp tool to download it, make the modifications and upload it again.

Yep, download config.php, make the changes explained in the FAQ, upload the file again.

As to where it is - that depends heavily on the autoinstaller that you used - they tend to stick in all sorts of places ... See if you have a "geeklog" folder. Or, if you come across a file called lib-common.php, that has the path to config.php in it (download it and search for config.php in there).

Sorry to be so vague, but I obviously can't see what's on your webserver from here, and each setup is different ...

bye, Dirk

Uh..guys..Thanks for help and patiance..So..I made part of things what I suposed to do..I downloaded my new theme(White_Pointer1.4.0) in my public_html/layout,also,I made config.php modifications and I uploaded config.php,but now when I try enter to my website www.orahovica.org,I got next error message:
Text Formatted Code
Template Error: filename: file /home/nine/public_html/layout/!White_Pointer1.4.0/header.thtml does not exist.
Halted.
 

I gues I need to go to my header.thtml to make modifications,but I am not sure what I suposed to change..This is my copy of my header.thtml and I hope that you can tell me what I need to change,becouse I can do something wrong.
