I want to change the size and style of the name of the forum only - does anyone know how I can do this?

I did manage to get into an area where I could change font size but it seemed to change everything and I only want to adjust the actual header / name of the forum. Also added a picture next to the name - can this be resized to make it smaller?

Thanks if you can help.... Very Happy

The text is not in a picture - it is the name of the forum at the top and I added a picture to the left of it

Hope I have posted this in the correct section...

Hi Sanket

Yes, it is the site description / name of the forum

(http://thetennisarmada.forumotion.com/index.htm)

It is very plain and wanted to change font style / size and add a picture.

Is this something to do with banners?

Thanks very much for your advice

Cheers

Code:
<font size="5"><font color="#FF0000">Testing</font></font>

See that code, you could change the color the font size.
For colors codes, you can find a list of them
here

If you need anything in specific, tell me.

I would like to do the same...change the font size of the main title. I see where to change the actual font type and where to change the size of the board in general, but how do I change the size?

Sanket, where would I put that code?

Currently, there's this code listed there: <meta name=robots content=noindex, follow>

Do I need to delete that? Do I just add the new code in front or in back of that?

No that didn't work, it changed the font size of the whole board, all I want is the main title to be bigger.

In the site description, just add the code i told you. Without the other things which you already have. I don't even know what those are for.

Here are the steps I've taken and the results from those steps:

I went to the "Site Description" and added the code <font size="16"><font color="#FFBBDA">My Forum</font></font>in the box. Refreshed the forum, there were two titles (one with the original font, size and color the other with the coded font, size and color) the coded title is cut off by the header. Went back to the admin panel and changed the "Display Forum Title?" to No. This caused the original title to disappear, but the coded title is still cut off by the default header background.

BTW - we are using the phpBB3 (prosilver) version.

Thank you so much, and sorry if I'm missing some basic step.

Try this instead:

<span style="font-size:24px; color:#FFBBDA;">My Forum</span>

You can change the font size to whatever you want.
