There are 2 ways to do this.

Fiirst :- create your own logo and name it logo_phpBB.gif and upload it to your templates/subSilver/images folder.

OR :- Create your logo, call it what you like, again upload it - not necessarily to your templates/subSilver/images folder (could be anywhere). THEN edit your overall_header.tpl file (in templates/subSilver Folder) and find :-

Code: Select all

<td><a href="{U_INDEX}"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif"
Replace the reference to the logo_phpBB.gif to your own logo and its location.

Point to note - Try searching the forum first, as this has been answered many many times before! :D

Good Luck. . .

Open it in a text editor.

Personally I use EditPlus2 which can be got Here.

File -> Open -> Select the file -> Click on "Ok" or "Open" or something like that :-)

Are you sure you should be doing this... :?:

It's basic stuff... Perhaps read the FAQ and the manual that came with phpBB2 as well...

Look Here, and Here and Here.

Well, download the files from your server, edit them and finally upload them again.

Editing css files

Post by CTCNetwork »

DO NOT edit anything on your site.

You have a copy on your PC, yes? If not, download your frum to your PC...

Edit (back up first!) and then upload to your server....

I suggested editPlus as it automatically saves the edited file as a .bak file (but overwritten each time you save and edit).. :D

Check the links I posted/sent . .

Good Luck. . .
