Adding links, and buttons to a forum.

Unread post by Blue Frost » March 12th, 2012, 5:55 pm

Anyone know how to add a link to the forum page, I need two added.
One for a web search engine, and the other for the animal rescue site.
I have the coding for them both, but have no clue how to add them.
I do know it's added to you HTML somehow.

Here is the coding

theanimalrescuesite.com

<div style="margin:5px;float:left;"><a href="http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clic ... _120"><img border="0" alt="The Animal Rescue Site" src="http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clic ... ></a></div>

i'd just add that code somewhere (probably very end) in the overallheader.html - that way the link will show up on your every page. you could also modify overallfooter.html with the same result only the links will be at the bottom of the page.

another way is modifying the software using the ad management mod - it's fancier and it allows you to modify (add/remove) links or banners from your ACP but i don't recommend it simply because that's just another mod to keep an eye on for updates etc. - all amounting to more work in the end.

also, if you want the links only on the board index and not every forum page you can just add the code to boardindex.html - all these .html files are available through your ACP too so you don't have to touch the server at all:)

Ad management mod, I might look at that. I find the links I want to add, but not the knowledge.
It would be nice if the people with the code would tell you how to add it.

Ill try it out when I feel better, migraines kicking today, and sinuses .
I have been wanting to add the Animal Rescue one for a while, it's a good site that helps a lot I think.
Anyhow it's good to know how to add them anyhow :) I may add a few more if I can like the other forums :) yours, and GF's

I don't mind, but it's not needed. I have Guest posting, but May or may not OK registration.
