Banner change does not show up

Post by jehem » Sat Dec 30, 2017 3:54 pm

Hi,

After browsing a lot on the subject, I am a bit lost with the support given at different releases of phpbb.

I wanted to fully replace the banner (not only the logo)by a custom banner.

To do this I followed this link :
viewtopic.php?f=74&t=639205

In essence, it is asked to modify template/overall_header.html to define a new banner height (10px less than the actual height), remove the logo, remove the heading, remove the search bar.
>>> It works.

I also updated colours.css and common.css to adjust the banner height and fetch a banner image from theme/images.

I particular, in colours.css, the following update:

.headerbar {
color: #FFFFFF;
background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/banniere_Nico_avec_orange.jpg")
}


the image file is in de good directory.
I refreshed the cache with ACP.
>>>NO success

Then they talk about refreshing styles and templates via a "STYLES" tab in the ACP bar, but the "STYLES" tab is not there.

Can someone provide help ?

Thanks a lot

That link is for phpBB 3.0 and will not work in phpBB 3.2

Hi DAvid,

Got a reply from another source, in colours.css {T_THEME_PATH} should be replaced by a . (a dot)

Actually, I have my banner which has a bigger height, but the frames below are "screwed up". I had expected the index box to be displayed after the banner, but it keeps it original position

Hi Jehem, and happy new year :)

Sounds like a simple problem to fix. Would you be able to post a link to your forum so I can look into this for you?

Thanks!

Good afternoon and happy new year everyone!

I am also having that particular issue, I don't see any option to change the banner and manually changing it did not work either.

These are the links:

www.ddrla.com
www.pumpcolombia.com

Any help will be greatly appreciated! ;)

Hello and welcome to phpBB.com :)

So, on https://www.ddrla.com/ I can see the banner has a larger height, but the background image isn't being loaded because a theme path variable has been used, but these don't work in phpBB 3.2.

In your colour.css file, where you have:

Code: Select all

.headerbar, .forumbg {
	background-color: #12A3EB;
        background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/site_logo.gif")
	background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #6ACEFF 0%, #0076B1 2px, #12A3EB 92px, #12A3EB 100%);
	background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, #6ACEFF 0%,#0076B1 2px,#12A3EB 92px,#12A3EB 100%);
	background-repeat: repeat-x;
}
Replace this with:

Code: Select all

.headerbar {
	background-color: #12A3EB;
        background-image: url("./images/site_logo.gif")
	background-repeat: repeat-x;
}
