    Hi all, I'm trying to upload a new header using Filezilla but for some reason the new header won't show up. Cleared my cookies and tried jpg, gif and png file, nothing. File size according to Filezilla is 980,558. What am I missing?

    Correct folder?
    Correct file name?
    Did you choose the path to the new logo in the Header and Navigation properties?

    By header... I"m guessing you're referring to a the logo?

    Thanks for replying Russ. Yes, the logo. I'm pretty sure it's the right folder. Filezilla says it's here: /public_html/styles/default/xenforo and the file name is header.png. so I entered styles/default/xenforo/header.png in the header logo image path file.

    Is it on your site corefreedom?

    I can browse directly to a header.png in the styles folder, I would check your logo_block template.

    Maybe you edited it directly awhile back which is why the style property logo path isn't working. This is what calls it:

                <xen:hook name="header_logo">
                <div id="logo"><a href="{$logoLink}">
                    <span><xen:comment>This span fixes IE vertical positioning</xen:comment></span>
                    <img src="@headerLogoPath" alt="{$xenOptions.boardTitle}" />

    Just checked, it's not in there, logo_block is still as it was originally.

    Is anyone else able to help me with this?

    First, it might be worth renaming the image file you are uploading to something new, upload it again, then change it also in style properties, just to rule out some filezilla or cache oddity.

    Second, if that does not fix it, try just uploading the graphic to the forum root (where index.php lives) then in style properties, the header logo image path is literally just the filename. So if you are uploading logo.png, enter logo.png with no slashes or folders etc in style properties.

    This is where I stick my logo - in the root - as I change it now and again, makes it easy to find :)

    Edit - if none of the above helps then I'm with Russ, it could be some template change (and are you editing the style properties for the right style you are using/viewing in the browser)?
