Cumulus Banner background

Postby griffo42 » Sat Jun 09, 2018 9:43 am

Hi

Is someone able to tell me how to add a background picture to the banner that I have in place. I did find a post which is some 7/8 years old but I couldn’t get it to work

Thanks

You’ll need to tell us which banner you are talking about. On the website linked from your signature, you just have the default Cumulus hillside and bird image. You can change that by just placing a different *.jpg in the directory.

Hi Keith,
I presume you are referring to your signature banner which is one of the TNET projects. In mine I have added at line 201 of the script

Code: Select all

// The line below is for the background image, which must be placed in the same directory as the banner.php script
 $baseimg = imagecreatefromjpeg("komokaimage1.jpg");

   imagecopy($im,$baseimg,0,0,0,0,$SITE['image_width'], $SITE['image_height']);
   imagedestroy($baseimg);


Enjoy,
Paul

You're very welcome Keith.

p.s. I'll need to check your site regularly as our son and his family live in Brisbane...

Enjoy,
Paul

Hi Paul

If it will be more convenient to you, I won’t mind your adding my site to the list you show on yours. I see the other Aussie site is in Adelaide which is quite a distance from Brisbane.

Best. Wishes
