Theme Information

Hello and thank you for downloading and installing JustFooty! I hope it'll give you much fun and give your forums a serious facelift. This template is my fifth for phpBB and has a distinctive football theme even thought much is generic enough to be used for a forum on any topic imaginable with just a few modifications.

JustFooty was designed to be plain, clean and modern with high contrast. What's even more evident is that it was designed with football in mind, the European sport, but it shouldn't stop you from being able to use this theme at a forum dedicated to American football, different icons, somewhat different graphics and a new logo is all it takes. This theme will be the base of a number of themes with same layout but different color schemes and icons and I'll be releasing new ones over the coming months. The theme will also be converted to and made available for phpBB 2.2 once it is released.

This theme was designed in cooperation with the football community BeautifulGame.net, one of the very best football forums online, be sure to visit them!

A lot of work and dedication has gone into the creation and design of this template. Because of that reason, certain terms of use apply, be sure you understand these as you by using this theme on your forums are legally bound by them. Should you have any questions, feel free to drop me a few lines. My website has my contact details.

Installing JustFooty

Please view the follow tutorials on how to install JustFooty. This theme only works with phpBB and there are no plans to port it to any other forum system.


Creating your own forum logo

An important part in giving your forum its own identity is to make it a custom logo. The logo is the image at the top left. JustFooty comes with a default logo that says "JustFooty/a theme for phpBB". This logo is meant to be replaced by your own. To aid you in designing your own logo I have provided a blank logo image which you can see below. The image below is 200 by 80 pixels. The default logo is 175x62 pixels, this is a size that fits this theme well but you're free to design your logo whatever size you want.

In order to make your own logo you have to save the image below to a folder on your harddrive, then open it with your graphics editing software, modify it by creating or superimposing your logo on it then save it as logo.jpg and upload it to the images/ folder in the templates/JustFooty/ folder in your phpBB folder on the server.

However, I have on a number of occasions allowed removal of the footer credits for a fee. If you're interested, contact me. Please be aware that this will merely allow you to remove the visible notice, comments in HTML may not be removed. Important to know is that this does not constitute a transfer of intellectual ownership, it is merely an esthetic modification
