to alter your boards skin.

goto control panel > select your board from the drop down box > click manage >

goto change board theme/layout

select the skin you want THEN check the option 'Copy it to the custom layout, and switch to using the custom one'
click change theme.

to edit/change the skin
click edit layout / colors of the board

you can change colors etc from there, and navigating with the buttons on that page you can edit/alter/add the boards css and html.

I am not Runboard staff.. but i believe that Would be okay.. I think you are rather free to customize any Board as feel like it.

But if I already have a custom skin that I'm using for one board, how do I use it for my other board? Will is show up in my list of available skins?

No, it won't show, but this wasn't the meaning of your initial question, was it?

Sorry if this is confusing, but my initial meaning was to know whether I could use a custom skin that I make for one of my boards on another board that I have and if so, how would I select it?

Oh, I see now... No, you can't export your custom made skin, so that you can use it on another board just like that. You have to repeat the skin making procedure manually on each board you want it to be applied. (but this is relatively easy, since you have done it once).

You can copy and paste the CSS and html sections, but you have to manually copy the settings for the color and the language set from one board to the other.

There is no rule against doing this, of course. emoticon

Just to clarify some terms:
Creating a layout for your board does not turn this into a "skin" that can be chosen from the premade layouts. In order for a layout to become a publically available skin, you have to present it in this forum and have it exported to the runboard servers by Thor himself. Smackdown5 has the exact rules for this proceedure.
