Look & Feel: Import / Export

The skinning system in IP.Board allows you to export any skins you have made for distribution, and import skins which have been exported previously.
Both of these functions are done in Admin CP --> Look & Feel --> Import / Export.


You can import skins under the "Import" tab. For more information about where you can obtain skins, see this tutorial.

The Import tab is separated into three sections: Import Skin Set, Import Image Set and Import Replacements. Each of these sections allow you to import the relevant xml files that make up a skin.
The skin you will be importing will have one file for each of these, although some skins will not include a replacements file.
The "Image Set" filename will start with "images-".
The "Replacements" filename will start with "replacements-".
The "Skin Set" filename will be the other file.

You simply need to, in turn upload each of these files into the relevant section to import a skin.
We recommend that you import the "Skin Set" file first, then, make sure when importing the images and replacements that you select the skin that you imported from the dropdown.


If you have created a skin, or customised the default skin, you can export your skin so that you can distribute it, apply it to other communities or just create a backup.
This is done under the "Export" tab.

Just like the Import tab there are three sections. You simply need to select the skin to export and click the button to download the three files which make up your skin.
