Right, well I'm currently trying to change my logo on my forums. I'm new to all of this stuff and I have no idea as to what I'm doing. So any help would be great.

All I'm trying to do is upload the new banner image to replace the current logo that's there and make another page on the bar with search, members list, etc. All I want that to do will be link straight to another page.

Although when I go to upload the image and create the page, I have no idea where to do it. I know that there's the Admin CP but there is nowhere to actually download all the files/upload all the files.

What I've wrote above probably won't make sense considering I know some of you are great at this kind of thing, but that's literally the only way I could explain. So if somebody could guide me through it step by step. I'd be thankful.

My forums:
to change logo: Admin CP >> Themes >> Click your theme name >> Board Logo

enter the path/url of the image you want to use as the banner.

you can upload the image to a image sharing site and get the direct image link from there. or upload it to your server using a ftp client like "File Zilla"

to add links on header bar: Admin CP >> Templates >> your theme's templates >> Header Templates >> header, and look for

<li><a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/misc.php?action=help"><img src="{$theme['imgdir']}/toplinks/help.gif" alt="" title="" />{$lang->toplinks_help}</a></li>

and change it as...

<li><a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/misc.php?action=help"><img src="{$theme['imgdir']}/toplinks/help.gif" alt="" title="" />{$lang->toplinks_help}</a></li>
<li><a href="ENTER PAGE LINK HERE"><img src="ENTER IMAGE LINK (OPTIONAL)" alt="" title="" />ENTER PAGE NAME HERE</a></li>

the above step works you are adding just an external link. in case you want to create a new page within your forum, you might need the page manager plugin and then add the page.
