are you sure you completed all the edits (especially the one in includes/constants.php) and uploaded them to the server?

I will have to ask my Dad, I think so, he said that this is the bit he got up to,
and then so I went to do it, asuming it would work bt I was puzzled when it came up with an error...

I have created a table (the code directly copied) called announcement_centre and after following the final steps results in a general error - Table 'djforum1_djforum.ANNOUNCEMENTS_CENTRE_TABLE' doesn't exist [1146]. notice the s in announcements. I then renamed the table with the s but still comes up with the sam e error message. do you know which is correct?

you will need the includes/constants.php edit. also, if you have a different prefix you will need to change the SQL statements to match your prefix.

I am sure this has been asked but I cannot find it, is there a way to add more than one announcement? I would like to have two announcement boxes on the top of the page. Thanks for the great mod.

right now, that is not possible. what is it you are trying to achieve? have a static message appear in addition to the announcement centre message?

My goal is this. Right now I have an announcement that tells the date of our next monthly meeting. I would also like people to see other messages that would give info on special events. This all happens from the forums home page when you first log in. I know of another site that has this but they are not running the new version of phpbb. I think they are still on 2.x. Maybe some kind of a modifiable news ticker would be what I am looking for. There is your next project I guess ;)
