Bootswatch Template for Newbie question

Post by AB_123 » Fri Sep 20, 2013 8:44 am

Hi Thorsten,

Thanks for your time and effort to make the php software available to all of us for free. I wanted to take the time to warmly thank you.
I installed it easily. Only one thing I had to modify on my server account : the php version must be upgraded so that the software could work.

I was willing to find some good looking template and I found spacelab on this forum (look good but the template in maintenance mode breaks), Bootswatch (idem).
Looking and discovering this : http://bootswatch.com/ I was willing to try "Simplex" template. But the files ready for download ( min.cs, css, .less) once installed in my Bootswatch template folder in their appropriate directories (less and css) broke the Bootswatch template installed (I downloaded the complete Bootswatch template from this forum).
I'm not a coder so there is probably something I did not do correctly.
I contacted Bootswacth but he does not know PhpMyFAQ that much.
Do I have to install Bootstrap first ? I'm not sure to understand what it is exactly. In Bootswatch sites : http://bootswatch.com/ and http://bootswatch.com/2/# it says : just change the css file in bootstrap and that's it.

Sorry for asking this kind of basic questions but I'm sure other newbies will ask if it's not already done.

==========

Going back to my previous question in a previous topic: If it's a pain to manage Bootstrap, its upgrades and other pbs that will surely occur, it maybe a much better strategy to learn to simply modify the default PhpMyFAQ template.


Thanks AB
