Solved Creating Own Header & Background

Post by cassini on September 30th 2013, 4:40 pm

Hello,

I would like to know how I can import a header & background skin onto my forum.
Using the header & background by Co-Founder designed on a previous board.

Hello cassini,

You can apply images to your forum by navigating to..
Administration Panel > Display > Pictures and colors > Pics management

For your background find 'Background picture (page)' then paste the url of the image you want to use and save.

For your header find 'Header background image' then paste the url of the image you want to use and save.

If you're using images of another forum which were custom made, it would be a good Idea to ask permission if you haven't yet.

Hello SethC1995

Apologies for the late reply.
Thanks for the advice the problem is that the original skin is in front of the uploaded new background. scratch

Also want to change the header but cannot work that out yet scratch
I have the full permissionfrom the original owner who created the background & header. As we have been discussing putting the original background & head onour forum seeing its over 3 years old.

So you have full permission to use all the graphics from that theme? Perhaps you should try exporting the wholestyle bbtheme from that forum and import it to your new forum.

You can do that by going to..
Administration Panel > Display > Skins > Themes management



1. ) Choose what you wish to export, since we're getting the whole style theme we will pick 'Current Skin' and 'Whole Style'.

2. ) Click the export button, please take note that this may take a few minutes to export the theme. Do not close the current window until a prompt telling you that you want to save this file comes up.

3. ) Go back to your forum and go to the same location, click 'browse' for import skin and choose the bbtheme from the other forum. Once you have chosen that theme click Import and all the graphics and some settings of that theme will be applied.

Thanks SethC1995

I am at work at the moment & will try your advice Smile

Just to add the original forum was deleted by proboards so the back ground & header was from an email that I got from my forum Co-Founder.
I will try as advised & will post some screen shots later.

I see then, you will most likely not be able to retrieve said bbtheme. Since that is the case can you clarify a few things for me?

1. ) You want to adjust the forum width so you can see the background image you've applied?

2. ) Your header image is a banner? EX: http://illiweb.com/fa/fdf_en3/logo.jpg
