    I think you might have to name it ini.[b:1fd4c77993]cptheme[/b:1fd4c77993]... I might be wrong though

    what i do!!!!!

    upload the themes somewhere.. i have created an account called &cpthemes.com&, and it has space in /home/cpthemes/

    I simply then go into /cpanel/frontend and do this:

    $: ln -s /home/cpthemes/THEMENAME THEMENAME

    that creates a sim link to the directory where all the cpanel files reside.

    you can also do this to offer your resellers their own themes.

    Hello Ini ,

    I had the same problem , however now I solved using these guidelines .


    [b:76f830db7e]1)[/b:76f830db7e] I suggest you to use 7-zip as your tar.gz file manager
    http://www.7-zip.org/
    [b:76f830db7e]2)[/b:76f830db7e] Open 7-zip and go to your cptheme directory
    for example bluelagoonb. Right mouse && 7-zip && Add to archive
    [b:76f830db7e]3)[/b:76f830db7e] Select tar , and save as [b:76f830db7e]bluelagoonb.cptheme.tar[/b:76f830db7e]
    [b:76f830db7e]4)[/b:76f830db7e] Now select bluelagoonb.cptheme.tar .
    Right mouse && 7-zip && Add to archive && Select gz
    [b:76f830db7e]5)[/b:76f830db7e] Now you have bluelagoonb.cptheme.gz . Rename with
    bluelagoonb.cptheme and upload

    It should work .

    Radio_Head,

    While that 7zip may not be the best looking of the archive programs out there, it works great!!

    This one is a keeper, thanks for the tip..

    I used WinZip so I guess that is why my theme didn't work. lol This s/w worked great. Now I just need to learn how to create a functional working theme.

    does the ownership on this new directory and the files in it matter ?

    No, it doesn't matter. Leave as is when uploading so you can replace the files via FTP whenever you need to update.
