phpBB question

Hey, i want to modify the “header” of my phpBB site for robotics.

It looks like this

I wan’t the stuff at the top right to be moved to the center, and moved down, to make room for some buttons at the top. They are flash buttons, and look like this.

Buttons Example

Any suggestions? Im completelly confused!

You’ve got to modify the file called overall_header.tpl in the emplates\subSilver directory. Thats the overall header that shows up on all the pages on the forums. Basically was add in html code into places that looked close and it worked after many many tries. I wish i could go step by step, but I’m too busy to do it right now. I will enclose my overall_header.tpl file that I edited on our site to give you an idea of what I did. It starts after the </script>

You can check out our forums at and the animation is logo_gradient.swf on our site.

I may be able to explain more, more just let me know.
