Miniskin4 is a free forum theme for miniBB. This theme is installed by uploading templates to templates folder by replacing the old ones there. Inside templates folder should be uploaded also folder miniskin4 with all the files inside it. After these things have been done, the theme is 99% installed. The last two steps are to upload file called miniskin4.php inside the forum’s root. And the last step is to modify the file bb_plugins.php by saving this code inside it:

if ((file_exists('miniskin4.php')) && (is_readable('miniskin4.php'))) {
include_once('miniskin4.php'); } else { echo '<p>Unable to launch Miniskin4.</p>'; }

That code will activate the Miniskin4 system. It can be accessed by logging in to the admin’s panel. It’s by default at yourforum.com/bb_admin.php.
