December 31st, 2004, 11:46 AM
OK-I am very lost. I am trying to change a logo on my header and change a link on the navibar in the gallery. I was not the one who installed, or previously did the work on this site, so please bear with me. I went into admin and looked under templates and stylesheets, but no luck. Where do I edit the html for the header and navibar? Please help asap! thank you!

It seems like you're a novice to web-designing. The web librarian is anxiously waiting for you. LOL. Just teasing. Anyway, you'd need firsthand some knowledge of your program's setup, i.e. path to PhotoPost directory (/home/mydomain/public_html/photopost) , where to upload your HTML files to, etc.
1./ Use some HTML editor, i.e. NotePad, and create an HTML file called HEADER.HTM. Below is a sample file.
<body bgcolor="#FFCC33" text="#000000" link="#0000FF" vlink="#0000FF" alink="#0000FF">
<table border="5" width="750" align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bordercolor="#660000">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<td width="250" height="75" valign="middle">
<a href=http://www.mydomain.com><img src="http://www.mydomain.com/images/logo.jpg" width="180" height="25" border="0" alt="Return to MyDomain"></a>
<td align="center" valign="middle">
<font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Geneva" color="#660000"><b>PhotoPost Pro Gallery</b></font>
</table>2./ Upload the file to your PhotoPost directory.
3./ Login as admin user and select Edit Settings - Global options. Locate the section Full path to Header Include file. To include an HTML file as the header, enter the full path., and enter the info, i.e. /home/mydomain/public_html/photopost/header.htm.

Heather you need to contact your host as the information to login ftp to your server only you or your host should have. It would not be your mysql settings altough that could point you in the right direction if your mysql is using the same user password as the ftp main user
your would connect to user like this
