  • how do I edit the header

    Hi.. I hate to keep asking stupid questions but how do I replace or remove the vbulletin logo image at the upper left hand corner of my forums... its url is .....vbulletin3_logo_white.gif

    (yeah I know: there are no stupid questions only stupid answers)

    BTW.. In my opinion v bulletin board is vastly superior to ubb

    Thanks, Marshall

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> StyleVars (in the menu) -> Title Image

    Or edit the HTML directly:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Common Templates (in the menu) -> header

      Thanks, but now how do I make my replacement image link to a another website and open up in a new window?

        That requires editing the HTML code in the header template.

          This is what I see:

          <!-- logo -->
          <a name="top"></a>
          <table border="0" width="$stylevar[outertablewidth]" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
          <tr>
          <td align="$stylevar[left]"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]"><img src="$stylevar[titleimage]" border="0" alt="$vboptions[bbtitle]" /></a></td>
          <td align="$stylevar[right]" id="header_right_cell">
          <if condition="$ad_location['ad_header_logo']">$ad_location[ad_header_logo]<else />&nbsp;</if>
          </td>
          </tr>
          </table>
          <!-- /logo -->
          <!-- content table -->
          $spacer_open
          $_phpinclude_output
          $ad_location[ad_header_end]

          This is what I want (see below)... something doesnt see right with your instructions..... or am I totally missing something?

            Editing that template requires some HTML ability on your part.

              So I am asking too much for you to show me how it should be written.. I know something about html but I don't want to remove codes that should remain... can you or anyone else help me?

              <!-- logo -->
              <a name="top"></a>
              <table border="0" width="$stylevar[outertablewidth]" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
              <tr>
              <td align="$stylevar[left]"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]"><img src="$stylevar[titleimage]" border="0" alt="$vboptions[bbtitle]" /></a></td>
              <td align="$stylevar[right]" id="header_right_cell">
              <if condition="$ad_location['ad_header_logo']">$ad_location[ad_header_logo]<else />&nbsp;</if>
              </td>
              </tr>
              </table>
              <!-- /logo -->
              <!-- content table -->
              $spacer_open

                  Code:
                  <!-- logo -->
                  <a name="top"></a>
                  <table border="0" width="$stylevar[outertablewidth]" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
                  <tr>
                  <td align="$stylevar[left]"><a title="TalleyScopeRings.com -- Click on the banner" href="http://www.talleyscoperings.com" target="_blank"><img src="$stylevar[titleimage]" border="0" alt="$vboptions[bbtitle]" /></a></td>
                  <td align="$stylevar[right]" id="header_right_cell">
                  <if condition="$ad_location['ad_header_logo']">$ad_location[ad_header_logo]<else />&nbsp;</if>
                  </td>
                  </tr>
                  </table>
                  <!-- /logo -->
                  <!-- content table -->
                  $spacer_open
                  $_phpinclude_output

                    Jason.. THANK YOU.

                    I sent Jason a Private Message and in less than 3 minutes after doing so I got a notification that you had responded to my thread. V bulletin board should put Jason on the payroll..

                    Why Jake couldn't have responded as you did leaves a big question mark in my mind. If I knew how do to this then I wouldnt have asked him... his response to the affect that I need to know more about HTML wasn't appropriate at least not coming from a employee of the company or so that is how it appears to me. If I am wrong about this then someone please tell me...

                      You're welcome, but don't be too upset. AFAIK Jake is a volunteer here and helps a great deal of people every day.
                      No...No...Meester vBulletin, he no work right.

                        My apologies to Jake... I did appreciate his initial responses and after that I guess I feel like he left me out hanging...

                        Jason with no exaggeration you gave me the answer within 3 minutes of my sending you a private message. There are people like myself how are not good at sorting code from html...

                        Thanks for your help... wasnt trying to whine but i guess i was.. my apologies

                          If you look around here you see lots of examples of VB staff offering HTML help when it is of a general interest. Taking time to write code specific to one persons needs is absurd to expect.
