    Hi there, I have recently installed DNN 5.02.01. My first attempt at skinning my website entailed installing three free skins (CTranquility/XDNewBlue/XDNewDesignAway) from DNNSkins. The installation of each is completed using Host/Settings/Upload Skin. Once I browse to the ZIP file I get "This package does not appear to be a valid DotNetNuke Extension as it does not have a manifest. Old (legacy) Skins and Containers do not contain manifests. If this package is a legacy Skin or Container Package please check the appropriate radio button below, and click Next." I choose 'Skin' and next.I then get package info and release notes and click Next for both, followed by acceptance of license. No erros - Installation successful - sweet.

    The new skin is shown on the Host/Extensions page and can be edited. However if I now try and select the a skin to use from the Host/Settings page the new skin is not listed.

    What anm I doing wrong?

    Sorry - all OK - I didn't realise it was a ZIP within a ZIP.

    Yes - it happens often - glad you sorted it out Kim.

    Life is too short to be unhappy!
