The text is set in the "Board settings" page in your ACP.
You might be able to change the logo via the "Styles" page in your ACP. Does your web host allow you to upload files via FTP?

Make your new logo file and save it as a gif, jpg or png file.

Upload it to your forum/styles/stylename/imagesets folder

Open
imageset/imageset.cfg

Find

Code: Select all

img_site_logo = site_logo.gif*52*139
and edit the logo name and dimensions accordingly.

Admin panel>styles>imagesets>refresh
Then hold shift and refresh your forum index.

Alternatively,
In the administration control panel select the styles tab
Then the imagesets option in the left menu
Now click edit next to the style you want to change.
Now you're ready to add your new logo image.
From the top dropdown box choose Main Logo and select
From the bottom dropdown box choose your logo file name
Enter the dimensions in the boxes provided and submit.
Now if you refresh your index page you'll see your new logo in place.

On the same page>>Site description: Change this to change your site Description. :)

It is advisable that you download a full version from this site and install as one-clicks install are buggy and are not Supported. :)
Also,give a visit to the phpBB Knowledge Base for Basic Knowledge about phpBB

This is the "Admin Control Panel".
If you are logged in using the administrator username you specified while installing the board, you will see a link at the bottom of every page to enter the ACP.
And yes, but I dont have my FTP info yet.
You can't upload any files until you have this information.

I just looked at http://stoxyforum.freehostia.com/index.php and there does not appear to be any board there at all!
