    Hi! Brand new vBulletin owner here, and I'm trying to customize my board, but the language is making my brain melt.

    All I really want to do is add a top banner to my forum to replace the vBulletin logo that's in the default setup. I don't understand the manual at all. Can anyone explain in really simple language what I need to do to put in my own banner?

    Someday when I get good, I'll want to play with holiday themes and whatnot, but for now I'd be satisfied just having my own banner.

    Thanks!
    Jenna

    You can put your own banner in to the right of the logo: AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > '<< >>' > Header > then replace:
    HTML Code:
    <!--
      NEW HEADER &amp; NAVBAR
      
      Now that the nav buttons are in the
      navbar template, you can stick whatever
      you like into this space.
    
      This makes it much easier for novice
      admins to customize their header
      template without affecting important
      navigation elements.
    -->
    with the full path to the image file.

    You can replace the 'vbulletin' logo: AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > All style Options > under 'Image Paths' find 'Title Image' and replace with your image.

      You could do a few things.

      * Name your banner.gif like the banner used by vBulletin. And then upload that file to the web server, overwriting the one from vBulletin. Yours will then be loaded.

      * Upload your banner.gif to your web server, and go to the Admin Control Panel > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > DropDown: StyleVars > and where it has the setting for the logo in the header, point it to your banner.gif

      * Upload your banner.gif to your web server, and go to the Admin Control Panel > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Expand the template groups > Select the template header and click on customize > Replace the xhtml SRC="" part of the <img /> tag linking the vbulletin logo one with your src="images/banner.gif"
