    Question Where's the "log in" button?

    Hello, I'm new here and i was having a hard time finding a way to log in. Only when I clicked on "who's online" did the site redirect me to a log in screen. Any help as to what to do or where to go would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Seems to be a bug that appeared due our recent forum updates.
    It will get fixed soon.

    Thanks for reporting the bug!

    Yeah, I know that worked yesterday and this morning, but I think it has to be a problem caused by our current new stuff.
    We're working for example on the banner thing so I think it's just a new technical issue that needs to be fixed.

    Tried to access the login page manually and it directs me automatically to the front page again. Seems like the login.php page is broken.

    I'll try to contact Jason when he comes online.

    [Edit:] Until the problem get's fixed you can log in with the "Reply With Quote" button at the end of every post. This gives you the log-in window.

    CSS editing 101. Make a backup of the forum template BEFORE adding in new stuff.

    It's sort of fun seeing the changes in real time. Like this morning when everything shot off the page to the right.

    True but, need to be careful. This is why I make backups of any templates I edit. This of course wasn't me. When you have a large userbase sometimes you can't help doing live edits due to the nature of vbulletin, but not making backups before you edit is not good.

    When I add banners, they're actually php calls that are not on the main template. This leaves less change of the actual header getting buggered. I create a (php file) which has all of the editing I do. Then you simply drop in a call to that PHP file with a a comment like !Banner for X reason. That may mean more files on the server, but its safer than wrecking a vbulletin template.

    Let's hope the person who changed this also knows how to undo it.
    Perhaps he even made a backup but didn't notice yet that something went wrong, haha.

    Arshes Nei, so you basically create a new php file with the changes and link the new php file into the template, so you can (if something went wrong) just delete the line again and everythings fine?
    I personally don't know any coding stuff, but it's always good to learn some stoff about it, if possible.

    Yes exactly.

    Like you made a file called banner.php

    In that banner is all the info for making banners the right size, code to possibly rotate banners etc.

    So now you want to add this to the header.

    You'd use a php link function calling the banner.php file and best practice is to comment it usually with

    // This is a banner

    With comments it will make it easier to find and edit it out vs trying to figure out where you went wrong with the code.

    Php will use html code within the file so that's why I suggest to create a new file that links within the template.

    Sounds interesting. Thank you very much for explaining it to me.
    Makes me want to learn some coding by myself actually.

    I'm aware, it's something I have to work on during off work hours to organize it better.
