  • Re-Direct Links, Forum Banner, & Forum Boarder

    Hello everyone,

    I have a few questions. For starters, I have a re-direction link on my forum to an external site, and I'd like to have that open in _blank instead of taking my forum visitors off of my site, and onto an affiliate, how would I go about doing so?

    Secondly, there's a space which is bumping my forum banner over a few pixels... it's an annoying eyesore. I figure there's just a   somewhere, but I don't know where to start to look.

    Thirdly, I'd like to add a pixel boarder around my forum (to match my site a little more), where would I go about editing that?

    You can find my forum at and for all you HL2 gamers, feel free to stick around too

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: Fixed problem #2, but I still dont know where to add the boarder, or how to make the link to an external site open in a new window...
