do you want a home page that looks like the rest of your board but has stuff you want on it.?

is that what you are talking about?

if so, then those instructions tell you exactly how to do it in pretty simple terms.

you can just copy exactly what they show you and save it to your computer then upload it to your server.

you can edit the examples with your own html/file names, etc.

you have to create a blank text file . if you do not have a good text editor, then get one;

notepad++
editpad lite
etc. google for them.

then, open a blank document and copy and paste whatever you need into it.

then same it as a html file

then, that file will go into your etech template folder

do the same for the php file that you create. save it as php and put it into the main phpbb folder.

then, when you go to yourdomain.com/yourphpbb/yournewphpfile.php

it will load up yournewtemplatefile.html

now you have a new file, you can go in and edit the html file to have whatever you want in it.

once you get that all figured out, we can tell you how to make it the home page.

Final steps

Now save the file you were just changing as aboutus_body.html and upload it to the styles/your style name here/template/ directory on your web server. Also upload the aboutus.php file to your web server in the main phpBB directory (the same place where you uploaded files like faq.php, viewforum.php, viewtopic.php, etc.).

Finally go to http://www.example.com/the-place-where- ... boutus.php to see your brand new custom page!
If you mean this bit it just means surf to the file you created and uploaded to see it.
