Our site owner has just moved our forum onto a new [fast Very Happy ] server and as far as I can see just about everything has come across with the exception of smilies (even i can re-add these) and our forum header image.

I've had a good search for the answer to this and know I have to edit the header.tmpl template in order to add our header logo again but results of the searches I've seen don't spell out how to do it and I need this as I'm pants at any sort html/php Embarassed

about 6 months ago I did somehow fluke it and get the header showing but has been lost in the move & I can't remember what I did last time. Could someone with a better understanding of html/templates spell it out for me please Smile

The header image is stored in ./images/forum-header.gif

click for Full URL

the header.tmpl at the moment is standard

{MAIN_SECTION: header forum page header}
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>{GVAR: FORUM_TITLE}{VAR: TITLE_EXTRA}</title>
<BASE HREF="{FULL_ROOT}">
{META-CONTENT-LANGUAGE}
<script language="javascript" src="lib.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link rel="StyleSheet" href="{THEME_ROOT}/forum.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="Default FUDforum Theme">
<link rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" title="{GVAR: FORUM_TITLE} Search" href="{FULL_ROOT}/open_search.php" />
{VAR: RSS}
</head>
<body>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="3" cellpadding="5"><tr><td class="ForumBackground">
{MAIN_SECTION: END}

{MAIN_SECTION: header_plain header for small popup forms}
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
{META-CONTENT-LANGUAGE}
<title>{GVAR: FORUM_TITLE}{VAR: TITLE_EXTRA}</title>
<BASE HREF="{FULL_ROOT}">
<script language="JavaScript" src="lib.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link rel="StyleSheet" href="{THEME_ROOT}/forum.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="Default FUDforum Theme">
</head>
<body>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="3" cellpadding="5"><tr><td class="ForumBackground">
{MAIN_SECTION: END}

The steps are:

1) Navigate to the "Admin Control Panel" -> "Template Editor"
2) Select your Template Set and Language
3) Expand "header.tmpl"
4) Click on "header"
5) Paste your HTML into the textarea and save

Best regards.

Well, version 2.8.0 has a nice header out-of-the-box. Here is a screenshot: http://cvs.prohost.org/index.php/Image:FUDforum_new_installation.png

If you need to alter it, you will have to learn HTML or pay someone to do it for you.

Best of luck!
