ooops, its phpbb2 so it should be index_body.tpl
the subsilver style file can be found here:
templates\subSilver\index_body.tpl

you should should have something similar with the style you are using
templates\your styles here\index_body.tpl

that looks fine, did you upload the changes you made to your index.php file?

p.s. please use the code bbcode when posting lines of code, they are easier to read ;)

hi bart, if it worked before you installed the announcement centre, the only thing i can think of is that one of the edits was not 100% right(maybe you added code before instead of after for example).

i would recommend to double check your edits one more time, if that fails, i can have a look at your edited files but i don't think i will be able to do that today.

if you have phpmyadmin, you need to go to your database, and execute it there.

you can read below article for further info on how that should be done.

I don't have phpmyadmin, my hosting company autoinstalled the phpbb2 for me on my server, do I still need phpmyadmin?
thanks

you could try this link http://www.phpbbsmith.com/generate-db.html . It is supposed to generate an install file for you that you then can upload to your server and run.

There are several PHP file creators about. Take care that you follow instructions carefully.
Some require that you upload the file inside an "install" directory. That is so you do not leave it in situe later. Others you just install into the root of your site and run with your browser.
http://www.phpbbhacks.com/forums/db_generator.php
http://sql.phpmix.com/

Here is the file.
Upload inside an install directory

Code: Select all

<?php
/**
 *
 * @package SQL Parser
 * @script install/db_update.php
 * @copyright (c) 2005 phpBB Group
 * @license http://opensource.org/licenses/gpl-license.php GNU General Public License
 *
 *
 * - WARNINGS:
 *   *** This script contains SQL/DLL statements that will modify your database!!!
 *   *** The SQL/DDL statements contained in this script are optimized for MySQL only!
 *
 * - Installation:
 *   1) Make backups of your database before proceeding!
 *   2) Create a subdirectory named "install" (without quotes) in your phpBB installation.
 *   3) Save this file as "db_update.php" and upload to your newly created install directory.
 *   4) Now, open the script using your browser of choice as in the following example:
 *      http://www.example.com/forums/install/db_update.php
 *      ...and follow instructions.
 *   5) Once, your DB has been updated, remove the install directory and this file.
 *
 * - Notes:
 *   - This script can only be run by board administrators.
 *   - First, a confirmation panel will show all SQL statements.
 *   - Your database will only be updated once the confirmation panel has been confirmed.
