This tutorial explains how to install style in .style format.
Limitations of .style format: to import style in .style format your host must support ftp extensions so extreme styles mod would be able to upload files. If your host does not support it then you should chmod directory "templates" to 777 so directory would be writable (but it will work only if safe mode is disabled).
To install style in .style format login as administrator, go to admin control panel. In eXtreme Styles mod menu choose "import styles" function (you might need to click "styles management" to see that function).
There are several ways to upload .style file on server. You can upload it with ftp to directory "cache" and it will automatically appear in list of files in import styles menu. Or you can tell eXtreme styles mod to download it from web or from your computer. Ether way you should upload .style file.
If you are having problems uploading style from web then probably your host doesn't support sockets or has some kind of server configuration problems. In that case try to upload style from your computer. If that fails too then upload file with ftp to directory "cache".
Then you need to install style. If you have uploaded style from computer or from web you'll see menu that has link to immediately import style. Click that link. If you have uploaded .style file with ftp then you should see style in "import styles" menu in files list. Click "import" button for that .style file.
You will see menu that will list all styles that are available in .style file. Select ones that you want to install. Then click "import" button.
Then you will see menu where you should enter ftp settings for your server. If you are importing style for the first time those settings will most likely be empty. eXtreme Styles mod tries to detect correct ftp settings and if mod managed to detect settings you will see links "set host", "set path", etc... click those links and then recheck settings to make sure everything is correct. Enter your ftp password and click "submit" button. If you have option "upload with local file system" then you can use that option too, but that option is available only if directory "templates" was correctly chmodded.
After uploading style mod will automatically install it. That's all.
The last thing you can do is change default style. To change default style go to extreme styles mod main menu and choose "default style" menu item and then select default style.
