  • Remove VBulletin Logo Or Use Dead Space

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to remove the "VBulletin Instant Community" logo if that's allowed.

    OR

    Change the pages so I can use the dead space above for rotating banners.

    Edit your templates.

    I'm concerned however that new users would think you aren't allowed to remove the big logo?

      Template Names

      Thanks for that pointer, but I must be very stupid on this one as I cannot find the right template.

      Any further pointers would be appreciated.

        It's in the 'header' template.

          Simple when you use a brain.

          Thanks, I think I must I have been out to late last night.

          Does anyone know if I can put a call to a CGI which would useally be a SSI into the header template (or any template) ?

          Thanks again,

            You can't use SSI from with the templates. You would have to use PHP functions such as implode to put the information in a variable.

            The code for this would go into your PHPINCLUDE Template.

              i just created a logo the same pixel size, placed it in the "images" directory, and in control panel there's somewhere you type in the path to the main logo. another way is to create a jpg logo , name it "vbulletin_logo.jpg" and overwrite the existing jpg of that name in your images folder. when vbulletin looks for the picture of that name to put in place, it will display yours. this from a guy who's not up on editing the templates quite yet.

              i implemented the latter option, see it at http://jerrybuilt.com

              click on "jerry's pegboard" for the forum page.

                That's exactly what I did too. (Before I saw your post). It works like a charm.

                I've been looking through all the code trying to figure out where the forumhome, etc. templates are. I particularly also want to change the href that the vbulletin.gif is pointing to. So far, I haven't quite figured that out.

                But I just realized (through lots of digging) that the templates are edited through the administrative panel (that's why no one bothers to make the slight effort to explain where they are finding them). Go to http://www.yourwebsite.com/your_vbul...rectory/admin/ and put in your password and user name you chose when you first set up.

                Then go down to the bottom left and start clicking on the edit hyperlink. The first is for the title of the default template. After you change its title you get more editing choices.

                Let's see where that leads.

                Maybe you could help me with this: when I typed the above address in my browser, I got a list of files in my folder, instead of having it open up the index file. Why is that happening?

                  Removing VBulletin

                  <a href="index.php3?s=$session[sessionhash]"><img src="{titleimage}" border="0" alt="$bbtitle"></a>

                  in the header template in the administrative control panel (not in the raw code files themselves)

                  That is the code I think you need to replace. Those of use who have spent hours wandering through the raw code will recognize that {'titleimage'} is really the vbulletin.gif and that the href is just sending you back to the home page of the forums. The "$bbtitle" is the name of your forum.

                  Please correct me if I am wrong

                    so i would replace everything between the " " marks like: href="______"><img src="images etc. etc. with the url of my home page?

                    in other words , eliminate and replace this part:

                    index.php3?s=$session[sessionhash]
                    thanks

                      Exactly, that's it.

                      The img src="images/your.gif " should be the picture you want people to click on. (I think img src ="your.jpg" should work too, but it would not work in the hack of replacing the external vBulletin.gif file itself we talked about above, because the code would still be looking for a .gif). Remember to add the your.gif file into the same images folder where the vBulletin.gif file currently is, so the program will find it.


                      (Notice that on this board the {'titileimage'} part has already been automatically converted to show the vbulletin.gif, even though the code I posted from the file was different.)

                      The <a href ="http://www.yourUrl.com"> will go to your own web site.

                      The alt="yourMouseOverMessage" will show the typed message seen when before you click (if you click slowly).

                      <a href="http://www.yourUrl.com"><img src="images/your.gif " border="0" alt="Go Back Home"></a>
