Installing new styles to phpBB 3.x

Post by Dominion Asylum »

I have the newest phpBB 3.0.1 board installed. It has the two styles that come with it (prosilver & subsilver2) and that's it. I've read a few places where it says to install new styles you upload the style folders to the /public_html/phpBB3/styles path on the FTP and then you can log into your ACP and install the style from the Styles tab... However I'm having trouble with this.

I have several style folders uploaded to the /public_html/phpBB3/styles path via my FTP but they aren't showing up on my ACP. If anyone can help... please do. T_T
