View Full Version : Adding Logo or 'back to homepage' link to forum

10-22-2006, 01:16 PM
I have my forum almost set up and raring to go. The stlye and general admin... all done.

I have gone for Aphrodite Green to match the colour theme of the rest of my site and i like the way it looks.

The finishing touch would be to have my logo at the top like I do on my other pages, or at the very least a link back to my homepage at the top. I've looked at the tutorials and there doesn't seem to be anything about this and I don't know anything about programming.

Depending of the image in the header check in templates/subSilver/ look for image file logo_phpBB.gif download to your computer, check the size then make a banner or image the same size and save it as logo_phpBB.gif. Then copy it back into the same folder.
Now to a link back to your web site, in templates/subSliver also in other skins you may have , look for overall_header.tpl download to your computer and make a copy. Now open with notepad or what ever edit program you have.
#-------[ FIND ]----------------------
<a href="{U_GROUP_CP}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_groups.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{L_USERGROUPS}" hspace="3" />{L_USERGROUPS}</a>&nbsp;
#-----[ AFTER, ADD ]----------------
<a href="http://www.yourwebsite" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_groups.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="Home Page" hspace="3" />Home Page</a>&nbsp;

Change the www.yourwebsite (http://www.yourwebsite/) to your address also the Home Page.
you can also change the small image that appears next to it, icon_mini_.groups.gif just make a image save as what ever then put it in templates/subSliver/images then link to it.

Thanks a lot that was really useful

I did it first of all in the subSilver one so I could follow it and it worked perfectly.

I then did it in the aphrodite green which is a bit different. I managed to get the homepage link in fine. But despite changing the logo to mine several times and checking I had done it right, it still came up with their 'Our Community' logo.

Is it possible that this can't be changed on that style or am I maybe doing something wrong?

Make sure the image you sownloaded is the image you wanted to change.
also that the new image has replaced the old one in the templates/Aphrodite_Green/images folder.

also post the url as you may have to F5 your computer to refresh.

I checked it all again. I had it named all ok, but the size was a little out, i guess that made the difference.

All good now.

Thanks a lot for your help, it was really useful and not only solved my problem, but educated me a little into how it all ties together.

You're a credit to your species
