Today we are going to discuss a new program that is now partnered with Chevereto!
What is Chevereto you ask? Well Chevereto is an image hosting software that allows you to create your own version of Flickr or imgur.
So today we are going to start pretty simple in what we are going to talk about. So where to start you ask? Well I find the best place to start is with making your Chevereto installation your own. So let’s change the theme!
In my opinion this is the simplest thing that you can do to make it yours.
So let’s get started. First we are going to refer to uploading the theme to your themes folder on your server. I am going to use FileZilla for this tutorial if you don’t know how to use this please refer to this tutorial here.
So in the email that you receive from Arvixe regarding your account setup you will find a place that says FTP access. You will use this information to log into your server from Filezilla. So put your information in and log into your server. After you do this on the right side navigate to your installation it’s usually this: public_hmtl/chevereto it will look like this:
After this click on the app folder and you will see themes this is where we are going to upload a new theme like so:
Most themes will come in a .rar file. You will need to extract these using a program like Winzip. After you do this you will upload the folder to your themes folder like so:
So after you have uploaded it let’s go ahead and log into our admin panel for Chevereto.
From your main page you will see in the upper right hand side your user name and a drop down box. Click this and you will see Dashboard and you click that link and you will be taken to the admin panel like so:
You will then be taken to a page like so:
So how do we change to the new theme we just added? Well at the top next to dashboard you will see a few links. You will click Settings like so:
It will take you to a page with a drop down menu next to Settings. Like so:
It will take you to a page that looks like this:
So the first section is Theme and a drop down menu. This is where you are going to change your theme. So click the drop down menu and select the theme you want like so:
After you have selected your theme scroll down to the bottom of your page and you will click Save Changes. You will see a little box appear telling you that your changes are saved like so:
Now to make sure your theme is updated navigate to your home page and you should see the theme you selected!
