I have a problem in Editing my IPB (2.1.7) Forum Skin template, I am good at html somehow, I have my Forum works fine now, I added a skin template which looks Great, BUT I want to add some improvments like change the logo, some Text.. etc, where exactly can I edit this? which file? can I use Frontpage or Dream Weaver? I have FTP access to my site but NOT Frontpage Extension.
I need to edit the Header & footer, no need to change the body. I want to deal with the design of Header not only the source code.
Any Help?

Have you considered checking out the IPB Support Site? Specifically, here might be a good place to look. It is always a much better idea to go directly to the source for specific applications (when one can) than to ask on a general help site such as this. :thumbsup: If you expect them to take you seriously, you will want to make sure to use proper grammar, puctuation, etc. Otherwise they will not take you seriously.

Good luck with your modifications. :flowers:

The pages you want to edit are in the Admin Control panel. Log into the control panel and click on the Look and Feel tab. From what you can edit your board wrapper and the actual individual skins for each element of the site.
