How to change site link on Board Logo

Post by davethecat » Sat Mar 10, 2018 11:25 am

Hi,
I'm trying to find how to change the link on our main board logo, but can't find how to do this. The logo links to our main website, and I need to update the link URL from "http" to "https".

Having read other suggestions, I have updated the site URL in line 82 in this file: styles/prosilver/template/overall_header.html but that hasn't helped - the link on the logo still goes to "http://www.sitename.co.uk/" and not "https://www.sitename.co.uk/"

Then I read that to see any changes made to that file, I need to refresh the template - but I can't see where/how to do this? (the advice I read said to go to Styles > Templates > Click refresh - but I can't see a "refresh" button anywhere in the ACP.

My board version is currently 3.1.9

I'm probably being dim here, so could use some advice, thank you!

I think you must be reading instructions for phpBB 3.0.x

If you replace any and all of the files you have edited, then purge the cache from the ACP.

Once you have done that, go to ACP>Board Settings and there you can set the URL you require.

Also the current version is 3.1.12 so you really should update (or even better 3.2.2 as 3.1.x is near end of its support)

Hello HiFIKabin,

Thank you for that advice - that has worked - much appreciated!!!!

Yes, I agree, I must try again to update our board version. We tried to do it a few months ago, and it all went pear-shaped, so we had to restore it to backup and haven't been brave enough to try updating again! I will post on a new thread if I need help next time.

Cheers!
