    yes ! It can be ripped since all the graphics and css file etc are saved onto your pc .. however you should know how to rebuild the template to insert it in SMF .. it would be easier , if you know how to design SMF template first . Because i think the template has some xml format ? like Vbulletin .. anyway ,it's possible to rip any template even if it's custom made . it just depend on your skills on HTML/CSS/XML to be able to re build it ..

    you don't need to steal them, they give them all away for free.

    I wanna replicate the smf theme that this site is using (but for a different type of site of course):

    http://www DOT newgnr DOT com/forum/index.php

    I figured out that the webmaster is using the 'musiconica' smf theme,
    but he/she has somehow moddified it to include a full picture (see axl) that takes up the whole forum sections in the index.

    How is this possible? I opened up the musiconica folder, and I have no idea where to start...
    someone give me some good tips please? sorry for the nub question, but im a fast learner!
