    How do I go about changing the logo area size, I basically need to take up most of the header area, I have done it before but I just can not remember how.
    Thanks in advance.

    Perform an ACP search for logo and you should find pretty much everything you need.

    The height is controlled by: Style Properties -> Header and Navigation -> Height of Header Logo

    Yes I've done the search in ACP and increased the height but the image has stayed the same size and how do I increase the width?

    By default, the headers width is set to max-width: 100%. Have you overrode that in EXTRA.css or somewhere else?

    Increasing the header height won't change the size of your logo.
    You will need to upload a larger image file.

    Not that I am aware of, it's a bit strange because I am using the same template style as my main site and that works fine with a full sized logo, I have installed several other style to test them perhaps I should uninstall them.
    It's a pre production site on a subdomain, live site www.reign-of-chaos.co.uk subdomain www.sc.reign-of-chaos.co.uk.

    Your logo is full width as it is.

    That logo is only 200-some pixels. You'll need to upload a larger one.

    Also, according to your license, you test site must be password protected and not visible to the world. Currently, you are in violation of this. Please protect it so that you are compliant with the license agreement.

    Thanks I was sure I had used a bigger image early, I do have another question is there a guide to change the background image?

    Its a separate part of the main site why do I need a second license? I thought as it's part of the reign of chaos on the same domain it was fine.
    I am trying to password it but no idea how atm.

    You are permitted a single public installation of XenForo. If you are unsure of how to password protect it ok your specific server, you should contact your host.

    Ok I have passworded the second one, so is there no way of achieving a second sub forum set up with a separate landing page without splashing out on another license?

    No. Only one public installation is permitted.

    To change the background got to your style properties -> General -> HTML

    Thanks for that, how do I increase the size of the categories in the forum view? I want to put image in each of the two cat's, the image are there and works ok in default style but in Defiance only the very top of the image is visible. I found it :)
