Open root/templates/your template/overall_header.tpl
Find:
<tr>
<td><a href="{U_INDEX}"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif" border="0" alt="{L_INDEX}" vspace="1" /></a></td>
<td align="center" width="100%" valign="middle"><span class="maintitle">{SITENAME}</span><br /><span class="gen">{SITE_DESCRIPTION}<br />&nbsp; </span>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0">
<tr>


- To change the extension, filename, or path of the logo, edit the text in green
- To change where the logo hyperlink goes, edit the text in red. Replace with http://www.yoursite.com. You may also wish to change the alternative text (blue) to reflect the new location. (ex. 'Portal', 'Home', etc.)
- To change the logo, just overwrite the {root}/templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif file with your own

ftp the file you wish to use in place of logo_phpbb.gif to templates/subSilver/images. For this example I'll use "mylogo.gif"

ftp a copy of phpbb2/templates/subSilver/overall_header.tpl from your site to your local machine

open overall_header.tpl

find:

<a href="{U_INDEX}"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif" border="0" alt="{L_INDEX}" vspace="1" /></a>

replace with:

<a href="{U_INDEX}"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/mylogo.gif" border="0" alt="{L_INDEX}" vspace="1" /></a>

close overall_header.tpl

ftp overall_header.tpl to phpbb2/templates/subSilver/ on your server.
