    Talking Linking to my site from my forum

    Is there a way to link back to my website homepage from the phpbb forum? When I am on there I can't get back to my site.

    My site is www.mydutchoven.com

    There are a number of ways to do this, and depends on the template/ style being used.
    The easiest is a text link in the main menu.
    this example is for the prosilver style other style may be different.

    To do this go to styles/prosilver/template look for a file named overall_header.html open this in your text editor, look for the line
    Code:
    <li class="icon-faq"><a href="{U_FAQ}" title="{L_FAQ_EXPLAIN}">{L_FAQ}</a></li>
    before this line add
    Code:
    <li class=""><a href="http://mywebsite.com/" title="Main Site">Home</a></li>
    it should look something like this ( Change the red items to suit )

    Code:
    				<li class=""><a href="http://angies-cyberscripts.com/" title="Main Site">Home</a></li>
    				<li class="icon-faq"><a href="{U_FAQ}" title="{L_FAQ_EXPLAIN}">{L_FAQ}</a></li>
    if done correctly you should have it looking like this Demo

    I have tried editing both pro silver and sub silver nothing worked. I tried editing with crimson editor and uploading with filezilla and editing directly in the cpanel. None of this gave me a home page link. Any other ideas?

    From the pro silver templates folder download the file overall_header.html then go HERE and send it to me i'll do the edits test and send back to you. please state what URL and text you wish in the link.

    Sorry about that, wasn't thinking the form won't except html and htm pages it blocks certain formats for security. zip the file and try again.
