Need help with a banner
« on: April 21, 2008, 03:38:23 PM »
I have a question. How do you change the banner?   I thought all I had to was replace the smflogo.gif with the banner I made but it didn't work.

Thanks for any and all help.

Code: [Select]
<div class="logo-box"><a href="/index.php"><img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/logo.gif" width="225" height="75" alt="', $context['forum_name'], '" title="', $context['forum_name'], '" /></a></div>
you have three options for this, you could change this line to

Code: [Select]
<div class="logo-box"><a href="/index.php"><img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/smflogo.gif" width="225" height="75" alt="', $context['forum_name'], '" title="', $context['forum_name'], '" /></a></div>
you could rename your current banner to logo.gif

or you could upload your banner again calling it logo.gif

Hi same question .
I am trying to add a banner to Julie TP by Crip
Here is the banner a friend posted
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v351/Aethenor/river2.jpg
I saved it and uploaded it here
http://members.iinet.net.au/~curran/riverlogo.gif
Then I added that url to Julie in the admin panel
on modifying themes and add url here or leave blank for default logo
but that did not work
I chmod the permissions on the admin panel
I chmod the files using cuteftp
I was able to chmod all the folders until I got to Julie and permission was denied .

I wanted to replace logo.gif within the images directory
but I could not upload it or delete the extg one or rename the extg one

I got error messages and checked details ;

The filename provided is not being accepted by the server. Please check for invalid characters and try again. Click Details>> to see the exact server response.

Request denied.
Please verify that the file or folder exists and that you have the necessary permissions on the server to perform the requested operation.
Details: COMMAND:>   SITE CHMOD 777 /public_html/forums/Themes/julie_tp
550 Could not change perms on /public_html/forums/Themes/julie_tp: Operation not permitted
ERROR:>      Requested action not taken (e.g., file or directory not found, no access).

What should I try next please ?
I want to add a banner to Julie TP and use it as my default .
