I have just installed the newest version of Geeklog and a couple of the plug-ins... I'me very impressed! Congrats to all involved. I like the professional theme, but would prefer to use clean as my default. I have downloaded it and have been unable to implement it. I've searched the FAQ's here and elsewhere, and I just don't seem to get... must be something simple... can anyone help shed some light on how to install this? Thanks!

Update:
I downloaded another theme and I can see how that would work. Looks like the problem is related to the unpacking of the "clean" file...

A theme is a collection of files that have to live in a directory below the "layout" directory. You'll find the Professional theme there, which should get you going.

Keep in mind that themes are version-dependent. You will need a theme that is compatible with the Geeklog version you're running.

Also see How do I change the default theme?

Thanks, Dirk.

I have made some progress. My original problem was a decopression issue - I didn't know what I was expecting until I downloaded a second theme. I resolved that. Got the "clean" files moved to the layout directory and edited the config.php...

but I still get professional online...

Anything else to modify?

You didn't really read the FAQ article, did you?

A user's preferences override the config.php setting.

bye, Dirk

You are correct... that was the issue. I needed to modify the following.

$_CONF['allow_user_themes'] = 0;

Thanks for putting me on the right track!
