My b2evolution Version: 4.1.x

I looked around but can't find an updated "Create new skin" tutorial. The one listed on the website is for older versions and doesn't work with 4.1.5 (which is what I'm using). If anyone can shed some light on how to do this I would be grateful :)

The basics of creating a new skin are simple: pick an existing one as a starting point, duplicate its folder, rename it and start making modifications ;)

(we will write docs when we get version 5 out of the door)

depends on your skin but basically style.css under your skin folder contains almost all styling.

you can find the included resources like js or extra css files inside skin.class.php and if you have a html.header.inc.php you will see <head> parts there, if not, you can copy from parent main folder.

index.main.php holds everything together, sub part item.block.inc.php and item.content.inc controls post content.if you have extra files such as "posts.main.php or pages.main.php" those take control over from index.main php for their respective layouts
