I want to customize a forum. Can someone please tell me where in overall_header.tpl for version 2.0.8 I should add my own HTML ?

There is a pretty good detail of the process on my board. I just someone through it. The main thing to remember is that the script uses three .tpl files every time a page is served. The overall_header.tpl then the *.tpl for the page and ends up with the overall_footer.tpl. You can use any valid html in the files. Take a look at both the header and footer file and notice that a <table> is split between the two files so you want to take care not to mess the code for that up.

Check out the post on site and then let me know if you have anyother questions. It's not to hard once you get the hang of it.

Great good to hear. Really isn't that hard once you can get your head wrapped around what is going on.
