    I am going to use ELGG for my new social network.
    but could you guy's tell me a place where I can find ELGG themes

    I want to customize my ELGG, to make it look pretty, nice etc.
    please tell me where I can find themes, mods, etc.

    and If you can't, could you tell me how I could do it myself, although I'm really bad at programming

    thank you

    The easiest way is to create a plugin and work on the views. Mainly the pageshell, then each plugin's view. Don't touch the core files if at all possible.

    It's lots of work and if you have the money it is worth hiring someone. It took me a long time to do mine, but it was worth it.

    Code:
    http://www.mypredilection.com
    is based on elgg.

    Download a theme from somewhere and have a look at how they do it. Also, have a root around on the elgg community site.

    Have a look here: http://community.elgg.org/mod/plugins/world.php

    There's tonnes of plugins and a theme on the right. That's a good starting point.
