your ad:
in styles/YOUR STYLE/template/overall_header.html
add your ad where you'dd like :)

the images:
in styles/YOUR STYLE/imageset
search for the logo of phpbb and replace it with your own logo.

after having uploaded this logo, refresh your style's templates and imageset.
hope this solves it all :)

Ok i got the logo figured out thanks But i still cant seem to place the google ads code in overall_header.html
i placed it in three or four different spots and nothing. And how do you make the site pull up the forums not the page that says your first forum? my site is OnlineAdsNow.com and BBBofEcommerce.com
thanks im just trying to get my google ads working and make the sites look better

Knowledge Base - Advertisements in phpBB3

Take particular note of the important notice half way down regarding Google ads. Due to the google terms and conditions, the ads should only go in the index_body.html, viewtopic_body.html and viewforum_body.html files. Do not put them in the overall_header or footer.

You've removed the phpBB copyright from one of the boards. There's no support without it.

The BBB one. It's not hard to spot. It's in the overall_footer.html

Code: Select all

<div class="copyright">Powered by <a href="http://www.phpbb.com/">ReportScams</a> &copy; 2000, 2002, 2005, 2007 ReportScams Group
And like I posted earlier, you should not put google ads in the header or footer files.

Ok i didnt touch that part of the site so reportscams is not part of the php copyright ? and i only had placed that code in this part of the site but it never worked . I can easily just type in phpBB where the ReportScams is no biggie i did notice it does go straight to phpbb.com though
