?? someone please any info on this, meaning my previous post.

I read somewhere that if you run a free hosting service, than you cannot change the picture. I bought my domain off of ICDsoft, if that holds any bearing.

Here is a screen shot to show you, and how do I get it there.

Can someone *beep* help me.

Excessive bumping and curse words will not get you what you need. ;) Area51 is not our support forum. Please go to 3.0.x styles for support. This question has been asked and answered countless times there. Also see Knowledge Base - Changing your board logo. Of course, this all applies only if you installed the board yourself. If you are hosted by a free forum service, none of this applies to you and you will need to seek support from your host.

Better would say to give these instructions:

right click on the current logo and select "properties" or better "copy link location". Paste it on the url bar to check that it is what you want to replace with your own logo.

Looking at the location of that file, go to that location via ftp. Then replace it with your own logo.

('cause i found it in a completely different folder, not any of those paths)

Hope this helps :)

For phpBB3 (at least), site_logo.gif is 170 wide by 94 high... Unless and until your image is trimmed or padded to those dimensions, it will be stretched or squeezed to fit.

At least that is what I observed.
