Hello all....

I have installed the fantastic template and was wondering if anyone could explain how I can change the top banner to have a complete graphic as a header.

My forum: www.skinandbone.com/forum

You will see so far I have just changed the logo in the top left, I want to have a complete panel across the top IS THAT POSSIBLE?

Thanks for your help :)

I am having a problem using this style as my default. There is no place to registar. Unless I am missing something (me and my entire clan.....lol) new users are not given an option to register. I looked through the posts here, but I did not find a question or answer. Can you let me know what I am going wrong?

if memory serves me correctly, i think this issue is caused by not using a 3.0.2 version of phpbb. if you have a previous version, new members will not see the register link.

that would be better to ask in the topic of the quick reply mod that you are using as that is a template layout issue ;)

That would not be enough, since SWF won't work in an IMG tag.

Better edit the overall_header.html and add the logo directly there with the proper code.

Dear Mighty Gorgon:

I did Change logos and banners (jpg and gif images) in the past, in phpBB old versions.
This is the first time I'm trying to replace and image with a swf file and this time it's getting too complicated for me to find the find the specific tags or codes. I think some tags are more complicated than older versions.

As an example, I was reading some of the instructions to change the sitelogo_small.png for a swf file and I tried some of the instructions you gave...

In my attempts, at some point I renamed (in the server) the file:
overall_header.html
to:
overall_header_old.html
(In the phpBB3/styles/black_pearl/template/ FOLDER)

I refreshed the Internet Explorer, waiting to see the header missing or with some error... but nothing, no change, the logo and header still there.

Do you know why?

What’s the point for me to do some changes in the code of overall_header.html if when I change its name still showing no changes... I will never know if I’m doing the right or wrong steps to replace the logo for a swf file.

I assume that in:

<a href="{U_INDEX}">{SITE_LOGO_IMG}</a>

{U_INDEX} and {SITE_LOGO_IMG} are orders being pulled from another file... where it's specified what image and what text will be pulled... What's this file.. where is it?

After you explain this to me it would be very helpful if you explain these points.

1) What’s the part of the code in overall_header.html that I should modify to insert the swf.
2) How should it look after it’s modify (put any name to the swf file)
3) Where should I locate the swf file?
4) What changes I have to do if the swf file is widther than 150 pixels (sitelogo_small.png), in fact if I want my swf file to be a banner with a width of the total width of the forum. As far I can see the overall_header.html is divided in 3 columns. Should I merge it in 1?
5) Since flash player is managed by Adobe, in new sites you need to include a folder named “Scripts” which include the file AC_RunActiveContent.js needed to play your flash files. Do we need to insert this folder in any part of our forum?

In advance I really thank you for your help,

I am rather new to having my own foums on my personal web site, but the look is to plan jane. What I would really like to do is change the generic arrows that begin the columns on the left of my forums to .jpg's that represent different gaming selections.

How does one go about this?
