Clouds will install automatically as package from the Concrete5 Marketplace and can be added from Dashboard - Add Functionality, once that is done you need to activate it from Dashboard- Pages and Themes


If you downloaded the file you can copy all the files in the archive (the clouds directory) to your packages directory then install from Dashboard - Add Functionality and then activating the theme from Dashboard- Pages and Themes.


You can also install manually to your themes directory by copying the themes/clouds directory to the themes directory of your Concrete5 installation.


Once installed and activated your site will display the Clouds Theme.  If you had loaded the sample content when you installed Concrete5 you will see the Main and Sidebar content.  This is a fluid area and vertical height will scale depending on the amount of content


The logo on the top left is /images/logo.png You can change this image for your own logo. If this file is deleted the Site Name as defined in the Dashboard will be displayed. You can also create an Image Block in the Scrapbook named 'logo' to replace the logo on all pages on your site and a File/Image Page Attribute 'logo' can be used on any page and that image will replace the logo.


The menu is a standard Auto Nav block using the 'Header Menu' template that comes with Concrete5.
