I just purchased and installed BreezingForms today. I do not understand how to install the additional themes. I saw some instructions here: crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...rms-azure-theme.html but do not follow them. Basically stuck on #1. There was no folder /media/breezingforms/themes-bootstrap/ and I only know how to upload files, not folders, in Joomla. Please help with step by step instructions. Thank you!

Hi,

you will need an FTP program to upload the themes into these folders (they don't have individual installers).

However, if you got the Azure theme from the "additional_themes" folder, unzip it. (Make sure the unzipped folder contains the theme.css, sometimes unzipping leads to having the same folder twice).

Then upload the unzipped folder into

/media/breezingforms/themes-bootstrap/

This path should automatically exist after you installed BreezingForms and visited its admin the first time.

Once you uploaded it and create a form, Azure will be selectable in form => advanced tab in the theme settings sections.

If there is no "themes-bootstrap" folder in the path above then this means your /media/ folder isn't writable. Make sure it is then, please.

Regards,
Markus

Thank you for explaining. I used my ftp program to upload the themes in the additional_themes folder as directed. I had to manually create the path /media/breezingforms/themes-bootstrap/ as the /breezingforms/themes-bootstrap/ folders did not exist. I can see all the files on the server but new themes do not show in Breezing Forms. See attachments. Is there still something I have not done correctly?

Hi,

the themes except Azure and Tycho are themes for the BreezingForms theming engine. Can you please try to move these folders (except Azure and tycho) into the /media/breezingforms/themes/ folder.

Then switch to the BreezingForms theming engine in your form and see if they show up in the list.

But I mist admit that this is still weird, because all this function does is checking for folders exsting in this path. So we will have to get through it step by step.

Regards,
Markus

OK, I found the problem. I am not the database administrator and there are 2 media folders in different locations on our server. I did not have the correct folder initially but now I do. I have transferred the files to the correct folders and it all seems to be functioning correctly. Thank you!
