Hello I am extremely new to this website stuff and had a question about themes.  I found a really nice theme searching around called arras its a word press theme based around a comic style and was wondering if its possible to add it to my site.

I downloaded it and it came as a zip file so I have no idea if i can even use it for guild portal sites since I do not see an area to upload premade themes any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Sahaladine!

You can't add/upload a WordPress theme to GuildPortal. For one, GuildPortal doesn't use php (the language WordPress uses). The theme you want doesn't seem overly complex so I believe you should be able to duplicate the theme using GuildPortal's Control Panel style settings.

I would suggest making a test site to mess around with the settings. This allows you to break the site, try new layouts and run amuck without interrupting your guild users. Once you get the layout set the way you want it, it shouldn't be very difficult to then modify your main site to look the same.

Hi Sahaladine!

It's really easy, just go to GuildPortal Home (link also under Account in the widget to the left), then click on the huge button in the upper right "New Guild Site >>". Fill out the form then click the [ Create My Site ] button.

I don't think there is a limit to how many sites you can set up, but idle sites with no members will get deleted eventually.

You can see what sites you belong to by clicking on the link below your name next to the forum message or clicking on the "Character / Settings" link under Account in the widget to the left. Then click the memberships tab. Only from the Character / Settings page are you able to remove yourself from a site - be careful.
