To install a theme, download one from below and copy the files to the "apps" folder, just like an homebrew application.
As soon you load it from the Homebrew Channel, the theme will be installed.
It is stored in the channel's savegame on the Wii, so you can safely remove your SD card or USB mass storage device without losing the theme.
If you remove the savegame from the Wii, your theme will be lost. You can also send the theme.zip using Wiiload.
To create your own theme, extract a theme.zip and replace the graphics.
They need to have the same dimensions, filenames and filetypes as the orginals, else the images will be ignored and replaced by the original (Dark Waters) graphics.
The theme.xml contains information about colors for the text (globally used) and the progress bar.
When you're done, you can put the images and theme.xml back into the theme.zip, maybe add a meta.xml and icon.png and upload in here.
Please do not use copyrighted material for uploaded themes and also, don't upload background-only changes since they are pretty pointless.
If you want to comment on a theme, use the talk page of the image.
