a link from the forum back to the homepage

Hi
Is there a way to put a link in the forum back to the main website?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Where would you like it?
By default, the logo in the top left corner links back to the forum root, but you can edit overall_header.tpl to change the link to anything you like, or to insert another link.

What page do you change the image on in the admin section?

It is not in the admin section. You have to edit the files manually. The file in question would be the overall_header.tpl for your style.

I thought he meant the logo that appears in the left pane of the ACP.

I've been trying to do this as well. I edited the file overall_header.tpl and changed the link from
<a href="{U_INDEX}">
to
<a href="http://www.agilitybits.co.uk/index.htm">

This simply pointed to the forum index so I changed it again to

<a href="../../../index.htm"> and it still pointed to the forum index.

Can anyone help please?

It's OK, I've done it. I was uploading my unchanged backup file instead of the one I'd altered!!!! Oooops! I always put a copy of the original file somewhere safe in case I mess things up.
