Damian,

You're a great help. Thanks.biggrin

Do I have to do the copy server side, or can I do it from inside TikiWiki.
If I can where do I locate the css files.

Also, can you explain the reasoning for:
> Incedentally if you want to change any of the tpl templates files in templates/ copy them to templates/styles/yourthemename and work on that copy.
> any tpls in the templates/styles subfolders take precidence over any in the base templates/ folder
Will there revert back to old form when upgrading etc ?
