hi

i just got open cart today. i am totally confused with ftp and how it works. right now i only have the default template but i would like to download a new one i found for free. i know i can upload it using the cpanel but i have no idea how to do it or where to start. im also pretty good with html and can get by css. php is so crazy to me, i dont really understand it yet. if anybody can help with step by step instructions on how to get a new template on my site please let me know!
it will be greatly appreciated!


thanks!

okay, ive figured out how to upload the ng image into cpanel. the only issue im having now is what does it mean to "copy" the complete folder? does this mean to upload?
cpanel wont let me upload the whole folder at once, so i would have to upload each file at a time in catalog/view/theme. how would i do this.... please?



INSTALLATION

1) Copy "black_shadow.png" into the folder (image/templates) using FTP software or your Web Hosts Control Panel..
2) Copy the complete folder "black_shadow" just downloaded into the folder (/catalog/view/theme)using FTP software or your Web Hosts Control Panel..
3) Log in your Opencart Admin Panel and from "Settings" page,
select your new template..
4) Click save and see everything in front side store..

Good work
