Can Someone Help me with a Template I bought...


I'm posting in this forum as a long-time Treehouse user wondering if someone can help me with an issue I'm having with a template. Have a go at downloading this Template it's great but I can't figure out how to get the classic theme to work properly. The HTML files are stuck in a "/classic/" folder and I can't figure out how to properly put them in the root folder. This is a big template but here are two download links. The "Sobriety Shared" download link is just to the Classic Theme but the Classic_theme link downloads the entire template including 3 different slider plugins and more.

Links: http://sobrietyshared.com/classic_theme.zip

7 mb Link: http://sobrietyshared.com/SobrietyShared2.zip

Any help would be appreciated.

All your HTML files are going to have links going to the other folders using "../images/" for example. You can't move them to the root folder unless you change every single link on every single page.

You MIGHT be able to execute a "Find and Replace" command to find and delete all instances of "../" and then move the images folder into the same directory as the pages, but I can still see you coming across a lot of unforeseen issues trying to do that. I wouldn't recommend it.
