    Salut Spencer,

    download the file for the theme, i.e. Vista.tar.gz. Unzip and untar the tar file.
    You should now have a subdirectory called Vista, that has three subdirectories underneath called css, images, and templates.

    Copy this directory into the themes directory of your silverstripe installation. Change the _config.php file in the mysite directory to use the new theme.

    If you have installed wamp at top level and silverstripe under wamp, the home directory should be called:
    c:\wamp\www\SilverStripe
    and the themes directory:
    c:\wamp\www\SilverStripe\themes
    and your theme (using the example above):
    c:\wamp\www\SilverStripe\themes\Vista

    In your file :\wamp\www\SilverStripe\mysite\_config.php, there should be a line
    SSViewer::set_theme('Vista');

    I hope, this helps,
    Mathias

    On Joomla. I am using Joomla templates and getting a massive headache. So I'm looking into SS to see if this program is more simple and concise. I'm hosted on godaddy and am just lost.

    I've looked at a few tutorials, but it seems like if you don't understand CSS and so on it's difficult. The templates are not that easy to change if you don't know about CSS ect. Yikes. Frustrating.
