    The alternative would be to produce a thin PNG or GIF file of a similar colour to your present logo then deploy your "drewry news network" logo as an advert to the right of your site logo by using the ad manager. If the logo was thin it's unlikely anyone would hit it. Most ad/banner managers allow you to deploy a link to anywhere and this anywhere can then be set to whatever you want it to be.

      If you need assistance with this, please open your own thread with full details of the problem and we'll do our best to help.
      Wow! That is really unintuitive! With all of the admincp settings, it seems that this would be a no-brainer by now!

      Sadly, it looks like vB is backing away from the whole CMS initiative and trying to refocus their product on primarily running the forums. vB doesn't use the CMS as their own homepage, and they don't make it easy for anyone else to either.

      It looks like vB 4 is finally becomming more stable with 4.2, but it has been a labor intensive technical nightmare, and now it appears that vB is abandoning some of our hopes of having a single software solution for powering an entire website.

      Thanks for your reply Mark.

        Remember we're only talking a simple template edit here.

          How to Path my LOGO to my Website's HOME Page instead of FORUM (vB 4.2)?

          Ok, I don't mind doing a template edit, though it seems that this SHOULD BE a native option in the AdminCP by now, but what are the variables now that I need to change in my HEADER? It appears that with 4.2 the code syntax has changed. Here is the code that I used to use:

          FIND THIS:
          Code:
           <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>
          REPLACE WITH THIS:
          Code:
          <a name="top" href="{vb:raw vboptions.homeurl}" class="logo-image"><img src="{vb:stylevar titleimage}" alt="SLOGAN FOR MY WEBSITE" /></a>
          I don't want to hard code my domain URL, so how can I code this with the latest 4.2 build?

          Thanks for the help.
          Jeff

            Hi NashChristian;

            The code you've posted there (the second box) should still work in 4.2's header template.

            {vb:raw vboptions.homeurl} points to www.mysitecom/forum on my test install.

              Thanks Mark! That worked. I was trying to use {vb:link homeurl} based on the new syntax of {vb:link forumhome}, but that didn't work. The old code worked fine.

              vB should just add this to the navigation manager, since it is a major component to a site's navigation... anyhow, thanks!

                Glad you sorted it, thanks as well for coming back and confirming this, as it helps others with the same issue.
