I hate to sound ignorant, but can I edit this block so it looks for the image on my server? I don't like the idea of my site relying on the ocPortal site, seeing as it's often down. Due to the ocPortal site's downtime, my site takes forever to load because it's trying to connect to an unavailable server (because of the branding logo). What file should I edit? Thanks.

That block is designed so that users can't replace it with a local file that is, say, a totally transparent image file. The obvious problem in this case is our server and this is rare. Obviously the server is a huge concern of ours, but at worst it may be a number of days (potentially Tuesday or Wednesday) until we have a reliable solution, since Chris, our only server administrator, is out of town.

Sorry about the inconvience, and I'll see if there's a three-day 'patch' or something we can arrange. I honestly don't know if we can but I'll look into it for you.

I hope it gets fixed soon.
good luck though.
Oh joe if you buy the software that image goes away.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Unless you choose to retain it (the ocPortal Ad) as some of us "Hallowed Customers" have done!

 :thumbs:

Take my advice. I'm not using it!
