I found a good template (Blue Noir) on the site you gave me. Now I just want to customize the header to include a picture and the name of my site. I added my .jpg into the templates/forum/BlueNoir, then I went into admincenter/forum layout/template and modifed BlueNoir.html code by inserting my .jpg where the YaBB link was.


<td align="right" valign="middle" width="400" height="100" rowspan="2"><img src="{yabb images}/earthcropped.jpg" alt="YaBB - Yet another Bulletin Board" title="YaBB - Yet another Bulletin Board" border="0" /></a></td>

Here is the link to my site - www.share-hub.com.

Is there a way to just import the .html into a program like Artisteer to manipulate the header then drop the .html back into the folder/file structure som, it looks a little more flowing?

The actual template vault is a little out of date I'm afraid. You're best off checking the forums - you can find a couple of templates for 2.5 here:

All you need to do is download the zip package attached to the post and follow the instructions in the link I gave you above.

Also, that link works with 2.4, does it work with 2.5?

Yep. It's exactly the same adding a template to 2.5 as it was in 2.4.

Do I need the .cfg for 2.5 to work?

Nope. You can totally ignore that bit.

I am trying to extract one of the templates from BoardMod. If I go to BoardMod, Template Vault and choose a template and view code. I copy the code into a txt file. I don't see any other files associated such as .css. Where do I put the code i.e. do I paste it into admin center/forum layout/template. If so, how do I save so, it is an option when I go Forum settings and load it as a default for my users.

Also, that link works with 2.4, does it work with 2.5? Do I need the .cfg for 2.5 to work?

I'm trying to get a good procedure for installing a template code from BoardMod. I copied the code from BoardMod, go into my Admin center, forum layout, and templates, then paste the code into the box where either default.html or yabb21.html is already listed? I refresh my user and it shows up. Is this the correct way? This only affects layout ie colors and how buttons and links are viewed? Can I title and save it in this section? Or am I going about this the wrong way?
