Thank you Robert!

Yes, my forum is my website. The site is AFriendFirst.com, and it is hosted bu hostgator. I think I can handle the instructions you gave but my problem is I cannot seem to connect using filezilla.
Here is what I enter"

Host: afriendfirst.com
username: firstfriend@afriendfirst.com
password: [my password]

I must be entering the wrong path somehow. The only thing I see on the right side is a folder with two dots next to it. When I double click it nothing happens.

So I right clicked and created this directory: /phpBB3/styles/prosilver/imageset. Then I put my logo in it.

I know I'm doing it wrong because there are no other files at all on the right side. So If I could just figure out how to connect, I know I can handle the rest of it.

I still think you are using a wrong FTP login.
FTP login is NOT your login on the forum.

If you don't know your FTP login, you need to contact your host.

when you signed up with hostgator, they sent you an email with all of your connection details.

one of which was the ftp connection details.

I am pretty sure that the username and login for ftp is going to be exactly the same as your login to the hostgator cpanel.

you apparently have the rest of the ftp info correct or you would not be connected at all.
