Nice guide.

The admin area upload banner will add statistics of your forum, which can be quite annoying and can ruin a banner. How do you get rid of these?

Those are automatically put on there through that feature.

Make your image through an image creator program (paint, GIMP, PhotoShop, etc.)

Upload your image to a image hoster (tinypic, photobucket, etc.)

Retrieve the URL and use that one Wink

Because we all use different screen resolutions, there is no "right size"

Your forum may be a certain width on your monitor but completely different on someone else's. Wink

Hi

I have big problem with puting banner on smf 2.0 RC5 forum. I have follow this tutorial and didn't get what I need.

This is code that I have put on this place: // Custom banners and shoutboxes should be placed here, before the linktree.

<div align="center">
    <a href="http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/gate/?returnUrl=|bf3|servers|show|34694cfe-665b-4bcb-947a-d0c4be70f868|Playomania-by-Diabolic|"><img src="http://www.playomania.com/uploads/battlefiel3_banner.png" alt="" title="Click here to return to the index!" /></a>
</div>

and when I do that I get this error:



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Can someone help me with this?

Here is code from 159 to 238 line with my code for banner:

function template_body_above()
{
   global $context, $settings, $options, $scripturl, $txt, $modSettings;

   echo !empty($settings['forum_width']) ? '
<div id="wrapper" style="width: ' . $settings['forum_width'] . '">' : '', '
    <div id="header">
        <div id="userarea" class="smalltext">';
         if ($context['user']['is_logged']){
         echo '
        <ul class="reset">
             <li class="greeting"><strong>', $txt['hello_member_ndt'], ' <span>', $context['user']['name'], '</span></strong></li>';
         echo '
             <li><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=unread">', $txt['unread_since_visit'], '</a></li>
             <li><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=unreadreplies">', $txt['show_unread_replies'], '</a></li>
             <li>', $context['current_time'],'</li>
         </ul>';}

   // Otherwise they're a guest - this time ask them to either register or login - lazy bums...
   elseif (!empty($context['show_login_bar']))
   {
      echo '
            <script type="text/javascript" src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/scripts/sha1.js"></script>
            <form id="guest_form" action="', $scripturl, '?action=login2" method="post" accept-charset="', $context['character_set'], '" ', empty($context['disable_login_hashing']) ? ' onsubmit="hashLoginPassword(this, \'' . $context['session_id'] . '\');"' : '', '>
               <div class="info">', $txt['login_or_register'], '</div>
               <input type="text" name="user" class="inputs" size="10" />
               <input type="password" name="passwrd" style="background: #1e1e1e; color: #c9c9c9; border-top: 1px solid #000000; border-right: 1px solid #454545; border-bottom: 1px solid #454545; border-left: 1px solid #000000; font-size: 90%; padding: 2px;" size="10" />
               <input type="submit" value="', $txt['login'], '" class="button_submit" /><br />';

      if (!empty($modSettings['enableOpenID']))
         echo '
               <br /><input type="text" name="openid_identifier" id="openid_url" size="25" class="input_text openid_login" />';

      echo '

            </form>';
     }
   echo '
     </div>';

  // Show a random news item? (or you could pick one from news_lines...)
   if (!empty($settings['enable_news']))
   {
      echo '<div id="news">
        <b>', $txt['news'], ':</b> ', $context['random_news_line'], '</div>';
   }
    echo '
           <div id="logo">
          <a href="'.$scripturl.'" title=""></a>
        </div>';
      echo '
   </div>
       <br class="clear" />';

   // Show the menu here, according to the menu sub template.
  echo '
<div id="toolbar-l">
    <div id="toolbar-r">
        <div id="toolbar">
          ',template_menu(),'
       </div>
     </div>
  </div>';

         if(!empty($context['user']['unread_messages'])) {     
   echo '<br /><br /><div class="categoryframe tborder" style="width: 90%; text-align: center; margin: auto;"><h3 class="catbg headerpadding"><center>';       
   echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=pm">', $txt['msg_alert_you_have'], ' ', $context['user']['messages'], ' ', $context['user']['messages'] != 1 ? $txt['msg_alert_messages'] : $txt['message_lowercase'], $txt['newmessages4'], ' ', $context['user']['unread_messages'], ' ', $context['user']['unread_messages'] == 1 ? $txt['newmessages0'] : $txt['newmessages1'] , '.</a>';       
   echo '</center></h3></div>'; }

   // The main content should go here.
   echo '
       <div id="bodyarea">';

   // Custom banners and shoutboxes should be placed here, before the linktree.

<div align="center">
    <a href="http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/gate/?returnUrl=|bf3|servers|show|34694cfe-665b-4bcb-947a-d0c4be70f868|Playomania-by-Diabolic|"><img src="http://www.playomania.com/uploads/battlefiel3_banner.png" alt="" title="Click here to return to the index!" /></a>
