Post BBS Name And Description In The Header 
 
I have noticed with many phpbb3 styles that there is no ability to insert the BBS name and description. That is the case with milky way red.

I do not understand this. Putting a BBS name and description is standard.

the overall_header appears to have the code in place to do this as follows:


<td height="100" valign="middle"><a href="{U_INDEX}">{SITE_LOGO_IMG}</a></td>
<td align="center" valign="middle"><h1></h1><span class="gen"></span></td>
<td align="right" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>


... but this does not work when hard coding the BBS name between the h1 tags or the span tags.

It should have a variable name, which I tried also.

Nothing works.

I will not be able to use this style unless a BBS name and description can be displayed in the header.


How can this be done?

BBS = Bulletin Board Service. phpBB is a BBS, they just left off the "S"

The term goes back to before the World Wide Web existed, and even before personal computers existed. Originally the BBS was on main frame university computers. Then when personal computers came along  BBS software was developed for personal computers. One would set it up on their home computers and people could dial in through a modem (2400 bps modems or less in those days). Once the World Wide Web was generally available in the mid-1990s, software like phpBB developed.

Specifically, here, I am referring to the "site name" and the "site description" found in the "Board Settings".

hi

is it possible that the variables are not there because you ve never set a name and description in your ACP?

you should not have to hardcode anything

The site and site description are set.

The code, however, does not have the variable name (see code above). I placed the appropriate variable name in the code, but it did not work. I hard coded the site name in there; it did not work either.

Either way, the site name and site description does not show up on the header for some reason.

did you purge your cache in your ACP after the edits?

maybe even clear your browser?

I have done both.

Since I was messing around with the code trying to solve this. I also deactivated and removed the style, and then deleted it from the server, and re-installed it from scratch. Same problem.


P.S. Since the system will not let me post again this soon........

I just tried again.

The site name has to be hard coded at the moment, but I must not have cleared cache as I thought. I did it again, and the site name is now showing.

But the original code is as I posted in my first post and is missing the variable names.

So, I guess this is solved.

Thanks

just to be sure ..the code should look like this with variables

Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
<td height="100" valign="middle"><a href="{U_INDEX}">{SITE_LOGO_IMG}</a></td>
<td align="center" valign="middle"><h1>{SITENAME}</h1><span class="gen">{SITE_DESCRIPTION}</span></td>
<td align="right" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>

Thanks.

I already put those variable in there, but now there is new problem and is making me crazy.

the h1 tag is too small and it is a dark grey color. Cannot have a dark color against a darkred background.

The crazy thing is that using anything but an "H" tag will not display the Site Name; even if I hard code it.

I tried using:

<td align="center" valign="middle"><span class="site">{SITENAME}</span><span class="gendes">{SITE_DESCRIPTION}</span></td>

site the stylesheet defined:

.site {
    color: #ffffcc;
    font-family: "Trebuchet MS", "Lucida Grande", Verdana, sans-serif;
    font-size: 18px;
    font-weight: bold;
    text-decoration: none;
}

.gendes {
    margin: 1px 1px;
    font-size: 1.2em;
    color: #ffffcc;
}

But the color of the description remains dark grey (#444444) and the site title does not display at all.

If I just change the h1 tag to a color of light yellow (#ffffcc) the color still does not change, but remains dark grey.

I have cleared the cache each time with each edit, and also the browser and tried both Firefox and IE8

I do not understand this. There is something overriding the color and size setting, but haven't figured out what.

Any ideas?

Hey, that did it -- refreshing the theme.

I am still familiarizing myself with phpbb. This is the first bb I have constructed in phpbb. I am having to convert my snitz fourm (written in ASP) to phpbb since my new server host is linux with chilisoft, which is not full asp.

I appreciate the help and the quick nature of responding.

Happy New Year everyone.

Just remember that if edits don't show you probably need to refresh, purge or clean something  (it 's often overlooked)

You're welcome BroIgnatius, goodluck converting and make it a great 2010

Greetings, ..Joshua203
