Hi have added a new skin to my forum bcblack from phpBB.com and on the bottom of the forums home page has text "Sponsor Logos go here" I have looked inside the admin panel and can not see how to add a logo on the bottom...have changed the main logo at the top by saving a logo the same size and uploadin,..then overwriting the file..so have an idea how to preform this(I think),just need pointing in the right direction,..any help will be greatly appreciated thanks.

go to where the current image is held, probably within the image folder on your server. Delete the current image and then upload your banner to the same place and name it as the image you've just deleted. It will also need to be the same type i.e .gif .jpeg etc.

If you don't know much about coding it would be best to keep the image the same size as the deleted one.

hi thanks for the reply,...I have put my logo on the forum in the same place as previous logo (which is at the top the page),..What I want is to add a sponors logo on the bottom of the skin page(it has it in text (sponors logo here),..I have looked inside the skin folder to find the .gif file which would need changing the same way as the main logo,..hope I have not confused you!...
the skin is bcblack which I downloaded from phpBB.com ...thanks

I've played with that script and it seems to be problematic in terms of logos and additions. I have it on my phpbb but never got it tooo work right in respect to moding it.

Look in: Templates --> bcblack --> Images --> logo_phpBB.gif *or something like that

I don't use PHPbb myself so not 100% sure but think the bottom sponsered links is done the same way as the top logo.

The script is quite easy to mod if you know what you are doing but, as with all scripts, it is also very easy to mess up if you do not.

You could also try the phpbb support page here (http://www.phpbb.com/support/). Not only are they full manuals here but you will also find the official forum for phpbb. You should find all your answers there.

Open the style's index_body.tpl and scroll until you see this:



<span class="gensmall">Sponsor Logos Here</span>


Remove the "Sponsors Logos Here" text, taking care not to affect any of the > or < tags, those must remain in place.

Now, place the following code in the place of the text you just removed, but of course edit it to include the images and destinations you need.

For this to work, you need to have an image uploaded which you will be using as the link.

It's not hard to do, but you might have to try a few times until you get it just right.

For a visual example, I've added the bcBlack style to a test forum I have and you can view this live there. (I left out most of the images in this style, but look for the NASCAR logo and click on it.) This code is set so that a use can click it to go to the sponsor's site but in a new window, so the user will remain on your site.

You can add probably two or three logos using the same code over and over but with different links.

The example is here: click here (http://dobmembersclub.com/test/)

Sorry for the slow reply, I never would have seen this question if someone hadn't bumped it.
