View Full Version : How do I create my own Header & Footer
September 12th, 2008, 08:35 PM
Hi, I'm sorry if this is already here in the forum but I am struggleing to find where it is.
For about a week now I have been trying to add my site logo to photopost with no luck. I have also been trying to get the footer to work but thats not working either. Could someone please stear me in the right direction or give me very basic instructions as PHP just confusses me big time.
My photopost url is Scrapping Around Gallery - Main Index - Powered by PhotoPost (http://scrappingaround.net.au/others/newphotopost/index.php) and my site url is index (http://www.scrappingaround.net.au/home/index.html)
Thanks in advance

Do you know how to code normal html? Lets start there.
To load an html file as a header footer in photopost all you need to do is have an html file with the correct html in there and in global options in our admin load the full server path plus filenames noted where asked in those options.

Nope sorry still not working this is the error message I get in Photopost
Unable to create or fix permissions for the file: http://scrappingaround.net.au/others/newphotopost/header.html
Correct the permissions or set the file path in the Admin Global Options.
Just not sure how to do this ??
I have all my permissions set at 777

That is a url and your header looks fine although you dont put body tags or headtags in it
You need to go to Photopost admin and hit global options and enter the server path to that file so it loads. I cant tell you what your server path is but it will be listed say in there because your data and uploads directories will be there so use those as a base listing to find out what your path is

Thanks Chuck header is now showing :)
Now if i could only get the footer to show the photopost php bit as well as my vote sites I will be a very happy girl.

If you load the footer much like you did for your header it should work
