there is/was a tutorial on this but I'll give the quick easy version.

create a forum widget (admin CP>> modules>>forum widget management>> create a custom block)... then put this code in the widget

Code:
<STYLE TYPE="text/css">BODY{cursor: url("http://downloads.totallyfreecursors.com/cursor_files/fireorange.ani");}A{cursor: url("http://downloads.totallyfreecursors.com/cursor_files/fireblue.ani");}</STYLE> <CENTER><p><p></CENTER>

now go to a free cursor site and fine one or two you like and copy those URL's then paste them where the URL's are in that code...

save the widget and place it somewhere on the left or right colum (if you don't use a table you wont see the widget, I suggest this)

Save the wiget in its spot and you should be done

that is to make a new widget and will change the cursor and you'll see the new cursor on all pages of your forum (just like in my profile forum)...

you have to use something with the cursor code (.ani), I don't think a .gif/.jpg type img would work but I'd test that and see weather or not it does. I've only ever used .ani

You have to create a Custom Block ('widget' in other words) and place the HTML code of the cursor in the widget whilst naming the widget titles as nothing (leave the titles blank), and lastly set the widget to where it will appear on the forum index. Or, you could place the HTML cursor code int he Homepage Message. It doesn't matter where you put it, the cursor won't break only in the widget or homepage message- it will affect everywhere on the forum. Try it. Wink
