Banner Or Marquee ?

Hello,

I am trying to find out the options to create a banner or marquee.  What Admin menu's do you go thru?


Thanks.

what do you mean by marquee?
to change banner go to Admin>Current theme>Logo image URL.
Copy and paste the URL of the picture you want for your banner.
Hope I helped!

Sorry, maybe I am mixing up terms, but I am trying to have a scrolling or stationary banner at the top of my forum that I put in the "Words" of whatever I am trying to get out...Newsfader Maybe?

Sorry for the confusion, I just don't know what to call it.

Thanx!

You can also put the banner in your headers (if you want it to be centered).

Admin CP > Manage Styles > Edit Headers/Footers

Keep in mind that when you put an image/text in the "Logo" box, that is what will appear when your members receive email notices from your forum. Example:

The url name of my forum is "Kimmie's Caverns", but in that section I have "The Playground". The Playground is what shows up when emails are sent to my members NOT Kimmie's Caverns.

That needs to be put in your headers as I stated above :)

News fader will work as well. It depends on where on your forum you want it... ALL the way at the top (would be headers).. partially at the top would be news fader :)

oops, forget to say yes, you can put a banner that is a marquee at the top of your forum.  You can make your banner also move if you wish.

Admin > Manage Styles > Headers & Footers

Then put this code in the header section:

<center><img src = "THE LINK FOR YOUR IMAGE HERE"></center>

Wow, I am not that swift today, the above mentioned code does NOT make the banner move, that code just places your banner at the top of your forum  :laugh:

this is the correct code to put in your headers to make your banner scroll across the screen:

Code: [Select]
<marquee><imgsrc="url to your image or text"></marquee>
you can see an example on my forum (link is in sig)
