Banner help
« on: February 26, 2012, 08:34:38 PM »
Guys i recently was promoted to Administrator at this website,"blackpowdertimes" "says i can not post external links"

They have one guy who knows how to upload new pictures and such. I made a new banner to replace the old choppy looking one you see now. How exactly do i go about doing this? I am new to this kind of format. Just looking for someone willing to help talk me though this one banner picture replacement and i should get the hang after that LOL.

However the most easy way is to upload the file and replace using the same name.
The path is shown as:

Just rename your new banner the same name Blackpowderhog.jpg and place in the path as shown above.

Granted it sound likes yo never used FTP so....
go here and DL:

THANK YOU!

I have my brother here now helping me out. It looks like i will have to use my own user name in order to upload that picture to the forum.

You're right, ive never done anything with FTP before

OK just be careful about deleting items.
also before you "Write Over" the old file rename it so you can use it in case the new banner does not work out.
Just rename to BlackpowderhogOLD.jpg then you can keep that in your webspace and if the new one does not work out,Just remove the OLD to bring the old banner backonline :)

Thanks again, I really appreciate all the help you provided.
