    • Now "Save" the forumhome_pmloggedin template and continue to step 2.
      <LI>
      • Step 2
      • Login to your web server with your FTP client and browse to the images/frontpage/ directory.
      • Upload your on.gif and off.gif to this directory (images/frontpage/) - and log out.

      Done!

      (Please note that I did not include the .gif images, if you want to use the images I use, please download them from: here!)

      ================================
      I did step #1 with no problems.. believe that or not lol. But step two I'm running into a stump. I went into my Cpanel but I don't see the "images/frontpage/directory" I saw public_html/images.. but that's it. What turn did I make here ?

      When adding this template.. I also lost my Birthday template. lol what did I do ?

        • I took a break from playing with templates and just came back. I'm excited to say, I have many working right now thank you thank you xiphoid !

          but of course, I fixed some and messed up others.
          I'm having some problems at the bottom. Hopefully this shot will show the problems.

          ...the line where "currently active users" and the PM are messed up . Not totally sure what I did wrong at this point.

            • The frontpage tweaks etc work great.

              Just missing the path in the template I guess for the private msg

              http://www.welovefreestuff.com/forum...ntpage/off.gif

              That location either doesnt excist, or no file uploaded yet.

              • so I put it in the path you have above ?

                I think I did this public_html/images/frontpage. Instead I should have forums before images right ?

                dang, I've came a long way with templates hehehe

                • humm this time I did this.

                  public_html/forums/images/frontpage

                  I just uploaded both the on and off.gif

                  however instead of seeing a gif symbol in the above location. I get this

                      • Okay I'm stuck on step 2. When you say create your own cat gifs at the very end of the step, I'm stuck. How exactly do you do this?
