  • [Forum] Using our banner instead of the vbulletin default banner

    I'd like to use our old forum banner in place of the vbulletin one or perhaps even use both? I used to have the banner link back to our websites home page as well. Any help would be very much appreciated. Using vBulletin 4.0.3

    Have a look at the titleimage stylevar for the banner.

    If you want to link the banner at your homepage, then find this code at the header template:

    HTML Code:
    <div><a name="top" href="{vb:raw vboptions.forumhome}.php{vb:raw session.sessionurl_q}" class="logo-image"><img src="{vb:stylevar titleimage}" alt="{vb:rawphrase x_powered_by_vbulletin, {vb:raw vboptions.bbtitle}}" /></a></div>
    And replace it with:

    HTML Code:
    <div><a name="top" href="url_to_your_website" class="logo-image"><img src="{vb:stylevar titleimage}" alt="{vb:rawphrase x_powered_by_vbulletin, {vb:raw vboptions.bbtitle}}" /></a></div>
    And replace url_to_your_website with the actual url that you want to link the banner to. Hope it helps.

            hmm, we have a custom logo on the3 top banner already, my titleimage shows up as this: /ad_pics/final_80x400.jpg

            Can you tell me how I would set that to be a link to my home page please?

                  OK, I'm gonna go with the assumption I'm in the wrong place? I entered the code, got the BQMOD*..

                  *Blue Question Marks of Death

                  EDIT:

                  OK, so the picture is not the right location, I found it in the templates.. Once I changed the coding, and click on the logo I get a 404 error: The requested URL /forum/www.donzi.org%20class was not found on this server. So, am I to assume it is still pointed to the forum, not the main webpage here?
