Help needed ;[

Post by Spankie » Wed May 07, 2008 6:47 pm

Well, I had someone assist me in making a phpbb2 forum that has a lot of MODs on it. I have encounted a problem. The problem is this... When people post, it doesn't show their name. That space is blank. I really need help with this. Also, sence I didn't make the forum, and I don't know phpbb all that well, I noticed that they put the copyrights under a javascript link thing. I made a topic a while back, and it was locked just because of that. So if someone is willing to help, I can give the files, access, whatever you may need, so that the Violation of the phpbb ToS can be fixed, and also to try to help me fix my forums.

If you need any information please feel free to ask.

Also, the first account I made works, it shows the name in the viewtopic. I'm guessing this is because it's an error with a MOD I had installed...

For the copyright you need to add the following to the file templates/your_style/overall_footer.tpl
The bit that is in red to the location shown relative to the rest of that file.

This not only gives respect to the large amount of time given freely by the developers
but also helps build interest, traffic and use of phpBB 2.0. If you cannot (for good
reason) retain the full copyright we request you at least leave in place the
Powered by phpBB line, with phpBB linked to If you refuse
to include even this then support on our forums may be affected.

The truth is out there.
Unfortunately they will not let you anywhere near it!
