Upgrade i.Skinupgrade ipb skin i series
If you are upgrading a 1.1.x or 1.2.x skin, you can upgrade to a 1.3.x+ skin by deleting the 1.1.x or 1.2.x skin&replacements via the ACP, as well as deleting the image set via FTP, and then importing the 1.3.x+ skin&replacements and images as per the installation instructions noted in the skin package.
1.3.x+ is where it's at. 1.3.x+ skins are ultra-compatible, thanks to NO direct edits to any default templates, due to the usage of a hook system to indirectly apply any template modifications, all of which are relatively non-intrusive.
