you add the html for the banner code into the html file for wherever you want the banner to display.

if at the top of every page, then you add it to the overall_header.html file
if at the bottom of every page, then you add it to the overall_footer.html file

etc. etc.

it is just html.
I have no idea what the code for your banner is.
normal html for a banner would be something like this:

Code: Select all

<a href="whatever.com"><img src="path/to/your/banner/image.gif"></a>
youy would put this in the overall_header.html file right after the <body> tag probably.

the same applies for swf /flash . you would have to get the html for the flash and insert it into the file exactly where you want it to show up.

we can't tell you exactly how to do this unless we have a copy of the file you are trying to put it in and the correct file names/images/paths, etc. etc for your web server.


this is basic html/web page creation stuff and you will need to get instructions for that somewhere else.

You need to refresh your templates on the Styles tab in the ACP before you can see the edits.

that is all you need.

give us a link to the board so we can see what is going on.

make sure you have that code in the overall_header.html file so we can see it.

you can put the swf file wherever you want to, you just have to edit the path accordingly.

Are you talking about the overall_header.html in the admin\style dir or the one in the prosilver\template ?

Thanks for your answer

In the prosilver/template folder. The one in the adm/style directory only affects the pages in the ACP, while the other affects pages in the main forum.
