Is there any real forum I can visit for Demo?

Does that only say that an officer is online to help? :roll:

I feel pathetic but in the help file there is this:

Code: Select all

# 
#-----[ SQL ]------------------------------------------ 
#
# Remember to change the table prefix used on your database
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` VALUES ('support_status','0');
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` VALUES ('support_online_admin','');
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` VALUES ('support_offline_admin','');
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` VALUES ('support_onlinetext','');
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` VALUES ('support_onlinecontact','');
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` VALUES ('support_offlinetext','');
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` VALUES ('support_offlinecontact','');
INSERT INTO `phpbb_config` VALUES ('support_image','images/support.gif');

And I was just making sure if it meant the MYSQL database that the forum is stored on or a different file. :( >_<

It actually doesn't matter... try running those SQL queries in an DB management tool, like phpMyAdmin (if you're using mySQL).

Ok I looked at the screenshots but where do I click to access the first screenshot so I can add content to the header?

Did anyone have problems with the SQL inserts?
There's something wacky about those SQL inserts, i'm getting errors when I try to run them in phpMyAdmin.

Anyone else experienced that probelm?

Feature request
can you add a option in ACP to enable/disable the support announcement on index? i mean when disable, the whole block will not be seen.

Ex.
Show Support Announcement Block: Yes/No

Ya, it should be simple, but you'll have to wait till weekends when I have more time to work on phpBB MODs.

Hi, I've added the feature you want in the latest version, before it is approved by the MOD team, you may get the file from Sourceforge
