Do you mean replacing the YaBB 2.5 logo with one of your own?

Or do you mean putting a background image on your YaBB forum itself?

Either way, you'll be editing your template to include whatever image you want.

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

Thanks Bill,
I managed to change the logo no problem and insert a background image for the body by editing the .css file.

I just wanted to try to place an image at the top behind the logo and the news banner ...

In the default.html, create a div or other block around the logo code. Then put the background in the div using css.

Actually, the news and the banner are already in divs - go to the default.css and add your background to those IDs. (or to the banner div.)

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Thanks Dandello. That's very helpful. I had wondered about this, too.
