In that case, you're looking at remodeling the BoardIndex.template.

Find the <td> that holds:
Code
Select All
<a href="{yabb boardurl}">{yabb boardpic}</a> 

  - remove that <td></td> and add 'colspan="2" to the adjoining <td>.

Note: doing this will remove the table cell the boardpic is in, but will also remove that particular link to open that board in its own window.
  

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

Thanks, but they didn't give what I was looking for. I think there is a table cell where the board gif resides. Uploading the new boards gif (or removing reference to it) still keeps the table cell in place. I'll investigate further but thanks anyway.

If all else fails, search for '.gif' in BoardIndex.pl - especially if you want to change the graphics out to a png.

Creating an easy way to change out the inline hard-coded graphics is on the to-do list for YaBB 2.6 or 2.8.

And if you're just looking to remove that graphic altogether, find the reference to  'boards.gif' in BoardIndex.pl and replace it with q{}.

Remember to backup your file first and make sure you save the edited version as ascii or straight text.

ok there are two ways
1. save boards.gif from this post and upload it to where your Template for your forum is from your pic it looks like BlackNoir.

2. in cgi-bin\yabb2\Sources\BoardIndex.pl
i may be wrong but if you look for

Code
Select All
                if ( !$bdpic ) { $bdpic = 'boards.gif'; } 



and remove this code before you make the edit make a backup of the file

hope this is of help to you  Wink

Removing Board Pictures from 2.5.2

Hi all

I want to remove the Board Picture field in 2.5.2 to look like the image attached (I like the idea of board pictures, but never am able to find the right ones!).

I could do it in 2.3.1, but it looks like things have changed (which in truth, may just be my level of dimness  Grin  )

Thanks as always.

John
