PhpGedView uses themes which allows greater flexibility over the appearance of your site.
To set the default theme for a site, go to the Admin menu, select "Manage GEDCOMs and edit Privacy", and click the "edit" link on the "Configuration file" line. Click on the "+" in front of "User options", and change the "Theme directory" line. Don't forget to save your changes.
PGV comes with a selection of Themes:
The "themes" directory contains the standard themes that come packaged with PhpGedView. You may customize any of these themes to your liking or create your own theme by copying any of the standard themes to a new folder and modifying it. When you configure PhpGedView, you should tell it to look in your new theme directory.
A theme directory must contain at least the following 8 files:
|footer.html||PHP/HTML for the bottom of every page|
|header.html||PHP/HTML for the top of every page|
|print_footer.html||PHP/HTML for the bottom of every print preview page|
|print_header.html||PHP/HTML for the top of every print preview page|
|style.css||A CSS stylesheet containing all styles|
|sublinks.html||PHP/HTML to print the links to other places|
|theme.php||The PHP design variables that you may customize|
|toplinks.html||PHP/HTML that appears just below the header.html|

If you really like a theme that you have done and would like it included with the project, you should send your theme files to the developers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
