Forum Name Not Showing Up - Simplicity

Forum Name Not Showing Up

by judytrickett » Wed Oct 16, 2013 9:05 pm

Perhaps you can help me out. I installed the Simplicity Style today on my forum. I can not, for the life of me, get that word "simplicity" to disappear from the right hand corner of the first forum banner. I can neither replace it with just the words as the title of my forum or a logo.

Yes, I have uploaded a logo and changed it to site_logo.gif and the whole bit. The logo even appears in the ACP under imagesets and it even says the image was correctly configured but when I do a refresh on my forum it is NOT there.

I can't change the darned thing to save my life.

Even IF the file for the logo was wrong at least the title of my site, as given in the GENERAL section of the ACP "should" appear at the top of the forum - but it isn't.

Advice welcomed.

I'm not an expert, but I think you need to change these lines.

in /styles/simplicity/template/overall_header.html find:

Code: Select all

<title>{SITENAME} &bull; <!-- IF S_IN_MCP -->{L_MCP} &bull; <!-- ELSEIF S_IN_UCP -->{L_UCP} &bull; <!-- ENDIF -->{PAGE_TITLE}</title>

   <!-- IF S_ENABLE_FEEDS_OVERALL --><link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="{L_FEED} - {SITENAME}" href="{U_FEED}" /><!-- ENDIF -->

Code: Select all

<span style="float:right; margin-top: -55px;">
<a class="logo" href="{U_INDEX}" accesskey="h"><img src="{T_THEME_PATH}/images/logo.png" alt="{SITENAME}" /></a>

Find {SITENAME} to replace SITENAME with your forum name.

Replace /images/logo.png with the logo.png image you want.

Of course I may have miss a few things, but like I said I'm not an expert.

Refresh templates and clear the cache in ACP to see the result. :)
