Premade skins are available for download in your Client Area immediately after you have purchased the skin.
How long does support last for?
Lifetime support is offered for free, as long as the issue on your forum is caused by one of my skins. If modifications are required (for example colour changes or updating skins for 3rd party applications), additional fees will apply.
Do you offer refunds on your skins?
Since the skins are digital items and can't physically be returned, there are no refunds offered on our products. Before purchasing, please make sure you have chosen the correct skin, and make sure it is compatible with your version of IPB.
Copyright, usage and distribution
Can I modify the skin as much as I like after purchasing?
Yes. Once you purchase a skin, you can modify it as much as you like - however you must keep the copyright intact (unless you purchase copyright removal), and you are not allowed to redistribute the skin even if it has been heavily modified.
Can I remove the brand/copyright link from your skin?
If you would like to remove the "Skin designed by.." link at the bottom of your skin, you must purchase copyright removal, which is an additional $30.00 for premade skins, and $50.00 for custom skins.
- I've already purchase a skin. Can I purchase copyright removal by itself so I can remove the branding link?
Can I resell or distribute your skins to other people?
No. When buying a skin from IPBForumSkins.com, you are purchasing a non-transferable item which is not allowed to be resold or distributed under any circumstances.
Can I convert your skins so they work with other forum software like vBulletin or phpBB?
No. These skins have been developed by myself for use with IP.Board only.
How many sites can I use your skins on?
After purchasing the skin, you are able to use it on 2 forums at the same time. If you wish to use the skin on more than 2 URL's, you must purchase additional licenses.
I want to upgrade my forum to the latest version. Can you upgrade my skin for me so it's compatible?
Yes. You can visit the upgrade page for more information.
- I already have a psd file, or a coded website template. Can you code it into an IPB skin?
