How to use

Ive installed some addons and a template that was on this site. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to use them, or edit them. Can someone please tell me where to go to edit and use these addons?

Thanks!

I'm not aware of a 'template' (I assume you mean 'theme') being in our addon directory, except for old versions which won't be compatible with version 3.
The addons would really depend on the addons. If you list them maybe someone could help.

Yea, theme. True, its in the 2.6 category, but I was hoping to try it anyway, see if it would work. If not, I will need to make my own I guess.

Mainly the ocWorld mod and the WAP mod….those are the only ones I wanted out of the three available. I cant find anywhere in there how to use them or edit them.

Thanks again for a quick reply.

The themes definitely aren't compatible - the ocPortal theming was all rebuilt for version 3.

To access ocWorld, go to http://yoursite/ocworld/
To access WAP, I believe you can just point a WAP device to your site and it'll work automatically. Alternatively point the device to http://yoursite/wap.php. There's a firefox extension, 'wmlbrowser' that can test it out. We also have a tutorial up.
