How do you change the forums logo/

Can you please tell me how?
myff admin

1. You must give the (myfree/myfast/myfine)forum.org link to your forum. A link should be given to the problem if at all possible. Do this whether you think it is important or not.
  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.

This is way to comlicated.

So far you have double posted, failed to provide a link asked for, and plainly not watched the intro videos or looked at any of the guides.

Just a quick question, is it possible to have a logo on the template Aeroblue.  I've had a look at howtodoit and it says look for your default logo, but there isnt a default logo for areoblue, all that shows on mine is the site name.
myff admin

Technically any template can have a logo, but unless the logo is detectable as a logo you will need to make manual edits to overall_header.tpl and will need to know what you are doing with the html.

that block up top you could use the middle table cell, the first one should hold the sitename and description macros, the second cell will have   and the third will have the search form, from there it's all about getting the dimensions right

This is a part of my overall header

Code:
<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 -->
   <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="{L_FEED} - {SITENAME}" href="{U_FEED}" />

<!-- ENDIF -->


I can see the sitename and forum name in there I just wondered is there anyway of pointing it a url to display like I do on my web page template.

I've got my own webpage with radio and chatroom, I;ve done a front page, the only thing I'm really struggling with is a logo for my forum. so any help would be great
Nick(NR)

go a bit further down your overall header, where the layout starts, you should see another sitename macro along with a description one right by it

thanks for relying nick

heres what i have found lower down.

Code:
   <td width="303" height="80" style="background:url('{T_THEME_PATH}/images/midl.png');"><div class="logo"><a class="headw" href="{U_INDEX}">{SITENAME}</a><br /><span class="genmedw">{SITE_DESCRIPTION}</span></div></td>
<td height="80" style="background:url('{T_THEME_PATH}/images/midm.png');">&nbsp;</td>
<td width="470" height="80" align="right" valign="top" style="background:url('{T_THEME_PATH}/images/midr.png');">


if i had a .gif banner or normall banner loaded to a image hosting site where would i put the link in please.
bazfalty

its ok nick ive worked it out.

thanks once again for pointing me in the right direction
Nick(NR)

looks good, just gotta make the image a link

<a href="{U_INDEX}" border="0">your image here</a>
bazfalty

your image here


come unstuck, as some members the logo was cut off so I managed to alter it from this

Code:
<td width="700" height="110" style="background:url('http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/0a0c24c083c3a129d4e8996cd8528fa96g.jpg');"><div class="logo"><a class="headw" href="{U_INDEX}"></a><br /><span class="genmedw"></span></div></td>
<td height="80" style="background:url('{T_THEME_PATH}/images/midm.png');">&nbsp;</td>
<td width="470" height="80" align="right" valign="top" style="background:url('{T_THEME_PATH}/images/midr.png');">


to this, but not it repeats across the screen. I need to work out how to center it and not having it repeated. this is what i had as code

Code:
<td width="700" height="110" style="background:url('http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/48a9658a15b447a05b5221ef0853fba86g.jpg');"><div class="logo"><a class="headw" href="{U_INDEX}"></a><br /><span class="genmedw"></span></div></td>
Nick(NR)

That is a browser specific issue, most likely IE as I saw the whole logo, get it back how you had it when you got your logo up and look at the width for the cell it's inside and match the cell width to the same as the image, as your middle cell has a fluid width that alters depending on what is in the cells either side.

If that fail, paste your entire header here in the code tags and post the direct link to the image you want as your log that you've uploaded to your template and I'll knock it up.

This is the header that i had up with the logo

What happening nick is because there still some background image if you make your web browser smaller instead of loosing some of the background that is already there you loose the logo instead. if that makes sense
bazfalty

Ive just changed it on board style 2 to this code

Code:
    <td width="700" height="110" style="background:url('http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/0a0c24c083c3a129d4e8996cd8528fa96g.jpg');"><div class="logo"><a class="headw" href="{U_INDEX}"></a><br /><span class="genmedw"></span></div></td>
<td height="80" style="background:url('{T_THEME_PATH}/images/midm.png');">&nbsp;</td>
<!-- IF S_DISPLAY_SEARCH and not S_IN_SEARCH -->
<div class="midlink">
<div id="search-box">
<form action="{U_SEARCH}" method="post" id="search">


which works when you make the web browser smaller, but it aligns it to the right and i cant seem to alter it to center. plus it moves the search above it and makes the top of the forum bigger.

I'll leave you alone now. lol
bazfalty

any luck nick.  

if you can check this site out http://www.its-all-about-flyers.com/ when you make ur browser smaller it dont affect the logo
