Hello Chaps, I'm only a low level user but i'm looking to spruce up our forum and want to discuss a few things. I've searched high and low and have hit a brick wall

A)can you confirm i am doing this correctly?
To change the Banner picture (The bit that says welcome above), simply go into the "Files" option on the admin panel, upload an suitable image to the Themes directory, then edit the Header.tmpl and change the link from (Header.jpg/gif etc) to your uploaded picture and rebuild.

B) I want to Change the forum name (Eg- Fudforum at the top of this page) and Change the description (eg the bit under the name - Fast uncomprimising Discussions Fud forum will....)

I can see in the header.tmpl
<title>{GVAR: FORUM_TITLE}{VAR: TITLE_EXTRA}</title>

But i also know that in Globals.PHP you have $Forum_name & $Forum Description.

I think its the $forum name and $forum description that changes the above, but i'm not really sure. If it isnt, then how do i do it via the templates If it is, does that mean i have to download a Php editor, change the values and then simply upload back, overwriting the old globals.php file?

Or should i not bother? Laughing


Seriously, though, its bugging me how to do this. I'm sure its fairly simple, its not like i want to add anything Funky Confused

Appreciate any answers if poss,

Very Happy
