Newbie requires help

Hi

Can you direct me to a thread here which guides a newbie through the site adminstration process? I have browsed the online manual twice but I can't find the answers or rather the vB online manual is structure to guide on specific functionality in the control panel instead.

Example
My newly installed bulletin displays the vBulletin logo. Do I need to buy a skin/skin template to upload my logo?

I am owners of a few [email protected] groups. have no prior experience administering such complex site.

Thanks in advance for your guidance

make a test forum to play with on your PC off line, pretty easy.
dowload WAMP 2.xx and go from there, that should let you play with a lot of things before you mess up online.

quick logo help.
upload your logo to the MISC images folder.

then.

Admincp/styles & templates/ style manager/click the drop box for the style-select " style var"/ in the search box put "title", you will see "image paths"- title image - put the path to the image.

done.

Most of the harder answers that aren't in the manual - such as how to change your logo - can be found with a search at vbulletin.com. Not here - this site is really just for modifications, which you shouldn't do until you're more comfortable with the basic setup.

I've never found a test site to be necessary, but if you do there's some things you should know about setting it up: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/conte...ng-A-Test-Site
