Can phpBB Forums be skinned?

No, not "Greenbat you useless bastard" comments. Instead, any helpful suggestions, bugs, ideas etc. I have very little (i.e, none) experience with forum running, so help is very much appreciated

Can phpBB Forums be skinned?

Because if so, I'd be more than happy to make a skin for this forum.
I've created a few websites myself in the space of the past three years, which means that I'm pretty good at the image side of it.

Yes it can.
For an example go and take a look at what I've just done to the Bunker !

Of course, just because it's possible to apply different skins, doesn't mean I have the faintest idea how it's done !
I just picked a random pre-created template and applied it.

I quite like it - I wish I'd explored a bit earlier !

I'll create a 'practice forum' to practice a new skin on, then post it on here once it's finished.
