Where do I find themes? Or, how do I create one?

Hello guys.
I'm new here, this is my first post ever in this community. I'm also a fan of flat-file softwares, I even built and manage a tiny flat-file blogging software.

I noticed Flatboard like five months ago and I loved it since. I was just wondering of creating a discussion forum for my blog. But, is there any place I could find already made (and mostly free) themes? Or do I have to build one from scratch? Besides, I would love to build a new theme that matches the style of my existing blog.

Thanks.

You can install themes on boostwatch or you can copy and edit the folder in the theme folder from flatboard/theme/(theme folder) hope this helps

already made themes

you need Flatboard PRO

do I have to build one from scratch?

YES, you need to make one from zero;

If you make a theme, please do consider sharing it, otherwise we'll only have the built-in "Bootstrap" (and the theme that comes with Flatboard PRO) to work with!

I suggest you to improve your blog program by adding a "Guestbook/Discussion Board" section

You can use the "PPDB" project made by "SurveyBuilder-Admin", or check out the construction of his "WebPress" project

Is the WebPress some kinda Flatboard integration or is it a standalone software?

Is the theme used on this forum available free? Or is it only for the pro version?

WebPress is a standalone software. Themes on flatboard are pro version only. Also thank for @Fred, for testing out my project
