  • Link?
    Where did you upload it?

    i did the original install with cpanel’s fantastico.
    i then downloaded the dots zip file, unzipped it and put styles.css and styles.css.bak into the main wordpress directory, along with the images folder.
    any idea where the files should have gone…

    I think you should replace the link to the default CSS file with the new one – in the index.php file.
    Look for the line in the head part of the index.php
    <style type="text/css" media="screen">
    @import url( <?php echo get_settings('siteurl'); ?>/wp-layout.css );

    and replace wp-layout.css with styles.css – I guess. I have no idea what the styles.css.bak stuff is.
    If the images don’t work you probably will have to create a folder named images and upload (move) the images there.

    yep, thanks that worked fine. also you do is rename style.css as wp-layout.css and upload that and hey presto, you have dots template!
