A complete and detailed Theme creation tutorial is being developed and will soon be shared!

Downloading & Sharing Custom Menu Themes

DIS2RBED offers a wide menu theme customization, custom themes can be shared to the community so everyone can make use of them!

Here's a brief informative post on how to correctly share your theme in this forum section and how to correctly add a downloaded theme to your menu.

Pre-requisites

- How to save a custom theme:

Once you're happy with the customization, head over to Interface > Menu Theme Settings > Themes and click on Export Current Theme, give it a name and press Enter, the theme will be saved.

Additionally, if you plan on sharing your custom theme on the forum make sure to pack the custom theme's folder into a .zip archive that you will later upload in your topic.

- How to locate saved themes:

Head over to C:\Users\(user)\AppData\Roaming\DIS2RBED\Themes, saved themes will be located in sub-folders named the same as you saved the theme in the menu.

To quickly move to the AppData folder, either open the Windows search bar and type %appdata% or press the Windows logo key + R and type %appdata%, then click Ok

 

How to add a downloaded custom theme to the menu

Themes are usually uploaded as .zip archives that contain the theme folder, once downloaded, extract the archive in:

C:\Users\(user)\AppData\Roaming\DIS2RBED\Themes\

You should end up with a path like this, with the name of the last folder being the Custom Theme's name:

In this example we installed the D2HUB theme.

In the menu, custom themes are located in Interface > Menu Theme Settings > Themes , to load a theme simply scroll to it and press Enter.

 

Sharing a custom made theme

You can upload your custom themes directly in our Downloads section:

Head over to https://w1tch.net/files/category/2-themes/ and click on Submit a file button, follow the procedure and wait for a member of the staff to approve your upload!

Alternatively, you can also share themes via a forum post:

Start by making a new topic in the Themes section, [Click here to start a new topic]

TITLE - The topic title should contain the theme name, if you gave it one, and a very brief description (usually made of the colour(s) / subject(s) used for the theme). Creativity is endless here!

Examples: "DIS2RBED - Green theme" | "D2GREEN - An epic green theme!" | "Neon style theme - White/Green theme" | "Green Theme" ...

CONTENT - You can follow the layout below for your topic, and then just edit the necessary fields.

Make sure to feature atleast one screenshot to showcase your theme.
