    the logo is in:
    templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif

    Just replace that file with whatever logo you want.

    (the code that calls/references it is in templates/subSilver/overall_header.tpl)

    Instead of starting a new post on a new phpbb issue, I thought I'd just continue on this one. Also the phpbb.com forum appears less than friendly as in the descriptions of the forums its says in almost each one what not to post about. And there's no obvious area for newbies.

    So here we go, I successfully changed the logo to mine base off the instructions above.

    Note: My hosting company runs the install portion of my phpbb and I have no cmd line access so I have to guess alot on where things are. I also know nothing of php.

    So my questions is now on a defualt install what code do I need to add to make my logo a anchor/link and where would it be added like in index.php, or somewhere else? Again all defualt file/dir locations.

    Sorry for such low level question but I have no php reference book and only know for sure that the code is not the same as pure html. I think

    You mean the big logo thing at the top left of the page?

    That is in the overall_header.tpl file that you edited above.

    The easiest way to make this change:

    open the file, find to code:
    Code:
    <a name="top"></a>
    
    <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="10" border="0" align="center">
            <tr>
                    <td class="bodyline"><table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">
                            <tr>
                                    <td>[img]templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif[/img]</td>
    Change the part:
    to this:
