Scrolling images

Would this work for me ?

I'm wanting to put several images at the top of the forum and have them scrolling really slowly.

Would it be possible to add text or url links to the images so that on mouseover it shows the text "name of cat missing from what area" and the photo is clickable to go straight to that topic

Yes, it is certainly doable, but you will have to add a BBCode to give al that you need.

1) add this BBCode http://www.phpbb3bbcodes.com/viewtopic.php?t=159

2) The code you add in the News Scroll text box will be of this form:-

[url=https://phpbb.com][imgalt]http://s27.postimg.org/4q61lz6ub/site_logo.gif,phpBB[/imgalt][/url]

note the comma between the image extension and the title text gif,phpBB

Getting there :) I just need to fix the block so that there is the small white gap in between the block saying "board index" and the news scroll box. Would that be in the CSS file ?

Strange, the white space should be there by default. Try disabling and use a fresh download and see if that fixes it

Just downloaded new copy and the white space is missing.
I'm using Firefox browser if that helps

I use FF and its OK with me.

Try disabling the 'full width' extension you have and see if that helps.

I don't have a full width extension, I changed it in the CSS file. I've made it 1000px now and the white space still isn't showing on the forum.

Edit to add - Board announcements disabled, adsense removed from top of index page
Nope, still no white space

try replacing the CSS file with the one in the phpBB download.

What other extensions do you have enabled?

Sorted :)

I added a <br > to the start of the overall_header_content_before.html file

Great. Glad you got there (no idea why you needed it though)
