Hi,

I saw there's a webcast for creating theme's but it's pretty old - looks like it was done a few years ago and for 1.1 - is the process the same for creating a theme for 2.x? if not, are there directions somewhere on how to do that? I actually already have a template - i just need to know the correct way to apply it.

thanks

I think it's the same ... there's not any changes in BE 2.0 I can think of that require a theme to be created differently.

This documentation might be a good reference, and you can also refer to the Standard theme included with BE 2.0.  It's current and also includes the nested comment capability in the CommentView.ascx theme file (nested comments is not new in BE 2.0 ... it actually goes back to BE 1.5).

I dont suppose there's a mirror of the theme video? http://www.nyveldt.com/misc/BE1.1ThemeCreation.html

Unfortunately that one loads half way and then stops. 

edit: NM - i just noticed he has a link to download the video
