Hi, I'm brand new here.
I just had had Yaf.Net installed on my test website and have everal questions about customizing the look and feel of the forums...changing themes, and logos to match my website.
First, the forum itself looks like as far as functionality that it is exactly what I'm looking for, but I need to do a few things and could please use a little help and or direction on where to find help/answers.
I would like to have a link to the forum located on my main website. I'm not sure which file is the correct file to use a a link on my main website page. I.e., I have my menus set up in ASP.Net as follows:
<li><a runat="server" href="~/Information/Info.aspx">Information</a>
So I'd like to place the same sort of link on the main page of my website to link to the forum.
Second, in order to make the forum look like my website, I need to change the logo and the alignment (i.e., it needs to be centered, not aligned left) I've been looking through the code for the yaflogo, and found it referenced in many places, but all I really want to do is change the logo to be that of mine, and use some .css to include the text for the title of my website.
What I'd really like to do is load this into my localhost (I have VS2010) so that I can tweak it like I want and then upload the changed theme files/directories to my test website.
Is there any place that has documentation on how to do the above? I have run a search and can't find any instructions on how to change the theme or how to easily change the logo/format of the Yaf.Net header section of the default theme. Any help or links to instructions would be greatly appreciated.
