Hello! Noob here. Got a fantastic idea for a political activist site and I really like this software. Unfortunately, I am having trouble locating alot of editable regions. I sent a few emails to a moderator, and he was as helpful as he could be. But I was told that the Theme Wizard is optional in configuration upon installation. However, that link was simply not available. Maybe it has something to do with my hosting service. I was also informed, as a footnote, that  a certain "style" link can be located at the "top bar" of the "admin zone", and the link to the "theme wizard" is at the bottom-right of the menu on the "style page".



Trouble is I cannot even find the admin Zone. I need some to take me in steps from login all the way to the " style " page so that I can get familiar with the themes wizard.



Thanks You

It might be easier for you to access the Admin Zone by putting the URL directly into your browser:

http://yoursite.com/adminzone/

(Obviously, replace "yoursite.com" with the URL for your actual website.)

Hi Alabaster.

I think your problem is probably a lot more fundamentally complex than your post suggests. The relevant 'links' you have been referred to are pretty obvious on any 'standard' ocPortal installation.

I've attached a couple of screencaps , just in case, but if you can't see them at all on your installation, then you may well need to re-install from scratch.

Don't throw in the towel just yet. The software is fantastic once you get it up and running!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

 :lol: I was going to make a video for her but had a meeting.
I might make one later if she wants.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
