How to install a Theme with gallery

Help!

I’m doing a new install, on a new domain, as practice before tweaking my own site. I have looked all over the place for a way to create a responsive image gallery, but not had much luck.

I did find this by cara-tm, and went on to create a GitHub account (totally out of my depth on GitHub I fear) in order to download it.

On the [\a mi.ni.ma\] theme page, I found this instruction:

How to install? Place this theme folder and its content into your root/theme repertory. Access to your Textpattern’s administration interface, then choose the “Themes” panel, import the theme by selecting it into the list, finally activate it.

I don’t know what my root/theme repertory is, or where to find it.

Most grateful for any help.

Hi, John-Paul!
“Repertory” is <poetry /> for “directory”. You find it in the top level of your Textpattern installation, aside the files and images folders and the css.php and history.txt files.

Re: How to install a Theme with gallery

Usually it’s in the root of your site (the same level as your ‘textpattern’ and ‘images’ and ‘files’ directories, and the index.php and css.php files). There should be a writable directory called ‘themes’ there. Drop your theme in there, then visit Presentation>Themes and there’ll be a dropdown with the name of the currently uninstalled themes for you to choose from and import. In this case, just one theme will be there.

EDIT: Uli was 10 seconds faster :)

Thank you Uli and Bloke. That’s really helpful – upload worked as you described!
