Don't forget to select the template in your profile or you will not see it

Hey, ok, here is my issue.  My website provider recently updated to YaBB2.. i used to be able to customize my forum templates with pictures on the sides of the actual forum.. like where you have big black spots on this one.  (background basically)  I am not a programmer, so i have NO IDEA how to insert the programming codes to link those side bars to my forum theme.  I have everything else figured out. 

So, if anyone could help, how do I add in the following file types? 

sidebarl
sidebarr
crownl
crownr
crownc
bodybg
tailc
taill
tailr

I would appreciate any help I can get.  Thanks!

Ok wow.  I must be really stupid.  lol.  I can't seem to figure out how to edit the zip folders that people put up there or how to upload them.  My hosting program already had yabb uploaded on there so all I did was pick a url and the program did the rest.  I am using the program (very simple) WebPage Maker 2 for uploading the rest of my site.  Do you have any idea what I would need to do to edit (I need my logo and nav bars for my site on the top of the forum.  The default one is confusing to people because they can't go back into my main site and they keep asking me if my company is called yabb.  lol.  If anyone can help with this it would be much appreciated.  The default colors aren't bad but the banner on the top has to change along with putting in an extra nav bar and some other coding boxes for adwords and things like that.  I hope to hear from someone who either knows what they are doing or someone else who is learning and having problems similar to mine.  Thank you!

I just upgraded my 1.1 board and created a new template I like and want all my old converted users to see as the default.  I do not want them to have to pick this template from their profile.  How do you force all users to see a custom template without having to have them choose it from their profile???  I would really like to avoid having to modify the default template to do this.  There should be some way to change the templates for all users.

I have gone through all of the instructions here and still can't get the template I want to work. I've tried putting into several different directories with no sucess.

The main directory that yabb is in is a sub-domain which is located in the public_html. I need to have it in the subdirectory because that's the url I need the forum to have.

There is a cgi-bin file in there but no public_html.

Where do I put the files??

OK, I tried to add a template, and it did not work, at all. It was incredibly weird, how badly it did not work.

I deleted all the files for the new template, in both cgi-bin and public_html, but how do I get it off the selection list in the admin and user cp areas?

Edit the YaBB Variables folder template.cfg file

   Was the Template compatible with the version of YaBB you are running ?
