editor user?

PLEASE ENTER THE FOLLOWING>>>>


Enter your myff forum url here, if the issue is on a particular part of the forum, then give a link to where the problem actually is. Do not enter your own domain name it must be the actual myff link :


If you are asking a template related question, what is the name of the template:


Please indicate keywords you have searched on: editor user administration


Now ask your question in clear English without "txt" speak>>>>

Sorry that this is a primary question. But how do I set up a "editor/user" so I can add change logos and templates etc. i have tried, but users do not let me add anyone. Management/Admin does not seem to help. i added editor  to admin hiearchy with no affect as to being able to change logo template. Changed to disgusting mustard, wont chnage to anything else and will not accept logo (right pixels) or chnage templates heading. Stuck at the beginning. Would not ask for help but it has been weeks now. Have to swallow my pride. (Gulp) Be nice to me.

1. You must give the (myfree/myfast/myfine)forum.org link/address of your forum. A link should be given to the problem if at all possible. Do this whether you think it is important or not. DO NO GIVE YOUR OWN DOMAIN LINK IT MUST BE THE NAME YOU CREATED HERE.
  2. Search on the forum and on howtodoit for your problem before posting. 90% of the posts we get have easily found answers if you search on a couple of key words from your post. If this is not the case report the keywords you searched on and we will make sure search works for the next person to try the same search terms. Each time someone doesn't bother to use the search, questions accumulate in the forum making it harder for people to actually find answers! as people searching will end up finding the question and not the answer.
  3. Keep it to one support question per thread, if you have another question start a new topic. This will help others using "search" to find answers.

Simply logout of your admin account, and register a new account called editor, then log back into admin account and give editor account admin permissions.

created "editor" user again.  Again tried to upload logo (pixels same size) and edit template (Still said BlueGlass at top)

Not getting myself around this thing. Gone through the tutor vids over and over again. Still not looking good with logo and more relevant format.

As for purpose and point of life. I specialise in many areas which save lives and have a 100% success rate. I'm just totally new to this.

Hate being held up by process and form filling.

You need to establish the core facts.

What template are you editing? what template are you viewing? Does the template editor show the new logo as the logo?

your current logo is "logo_phpBB.gif"

Is the replacement of EXACTLY the same name?

check very importantly the last three letters, is it a gif, as it would not recognise a GIF.
Zudane

it also won't recognize if the capitalization is different.  Make sure it is phpBB not PHPBB or phpbb.

Bravo,

Yep,

Copied, changed, saved logo code. made it right pixels 200x91

Tried several times.

Tried Athena AND Blue Glass.

No logo put up just usual and BLue Glass.

All I can do is repeat the questions.

If you are not seeing the changes then either you are not actually changing the logo or you are not editing or viewing the template you think you are, or possibly if you are using the same name for the logo the old logo is still cached by your browser.

Yep

Straightfoward copy of phbb etc. Just now checked and tried to upload again x 3 - Failed.

Please see attached:

It's a different name as we said.

You are uploading logo_phpBB_med.gif

and you should be uploading logo_phpBB.gif
Bravo

I see you have changed the template.  You now need to upload 'logo_phpbb_r2_c2.jpg'

I also see you haven't got any posts on your forum.  Content > looks.

Do you really think that threatening people is going to get more help...?  I'm a bit surprised this went uncommented.  The forum here is for support for your forum, and you need to be doing what people are telling you to to get the results you want.  If you're doing something different then saying it's not working - you need to do what is being said.

No comment made because I had not actually read it, now I have I would suggest an apology is made for such an unpleasant post.
