To add a banner for each category
upload the banners you need for each
category to your image
gallery... then when you have them all uploaded..
Go to your control panel...
select.. Forum Adminstration...
and for each category add the link for each banner
you want for each category,
FROM YOUR IMAGE GALLERY like this..
add
code:
<center><img src="ADD IMAGE ADDRESS HERE">


then click update settings
and it will display the banner for each catetogory...
if you dont want it centerd..the banner..just remove the center tag..

I tried this on my test forum and works fine...
hope this helps Steve

oh..yes..never mind,I answered my own question, I just went & did it like
I used to do on ezboards.

it works.-

http://s2.excoboard.com/exco/index....p?boardid=15723

I'm awfly glad because the other day,I thought when I was using colored words in acategory headings,it sure couldn't be very long,3 difrent colored words was,all that would show up,of an entire sentnce.

then later on google I saw someone say,that the excoboard catgeory heading was limited to 99 chracaters.

I suppose i should go find another thread to go post and wonder about,this,in.

my God i cliked on yoru siet..
you know your site,was,one i listed on,on,..
a
former color-collection I did;

of ,one-of,
the best 3
color sites
that
I wanted to list.

On my own ezboard site,for,3,4, years ,before it was hacked,I collected colors and hex nuymbers and color charts
,but ezboards were hacked
in may,2005,and almost all is gone.

i hav only,like,remnants.

you can,like,see some remnenst
on
http://p101.ezboard.com/byhexbymoonspinnerflax
and
on
http://p102.ezboard.com/byyonde

but almost all of the 3-year, byyonde,of 319 forusm,
nad ,very,very much history,
was hacked.

all my ezboards,were,hacked.

all my best color-charts,gone,too.

I had many custom-color colors for post-backgrounds,them selves,like muted grays and old off-yellows,that were non-glary;but almost ,all,was gone in the hacker attack.



fancy seeing you here.

well,anyway,your very site
is a very one of ,3, i listed in that thread on the
piscesall media.


you can go look,its still,right there.

well,you can take my word for it.


well small world.

&
this excoboard support forum,

seem,like,(compared to ezboard help forums & proboard help forums)-

like,

an
eerie ghost-town in the middle of nowhere.

A few
eccentirc people ,pop up ,in difrent scnes.

Its
Almost-empty,like a
burg of
big midevil gothic mansions;.

Where
the characters come & go as They Please,

To their respective
underground palaces.

This is way offtopic! cGhoulie could you start a thread in general about colors? I bet others could learn a few things from you.

Goodbye to all my friends.

oh..thank yuii !

very much.

well..I know what Ill do.. Ill go take my whole color-chart thread from the
piscesallmedia forum,and put it in a new thread,here; i think all i will have to change is the size of the font,as size,1's,here,are,size,10's on phpBB sites.

but that won't take too long.

&&&&&&&&&&
you can do more,on,excoboards,proboards,and ezboards,re colors,than youi can do on the piscesallmedia's, standdard phpbb site, as,on there,you couldn't use hex numbers,only color-names,so I will add some hex numbers to the chart.
