What extensions did you install and did you put them in the right folders?
Maybe post a screen print from the ext. folder?
Sorry! My English is bat ;) !!!

In most extensions, you will find installation instructions in the readme.md file.
In case you do not have the installation instructions, you must consult the composer.json file for each extension.

For an extension to be installed, this tree structure is required.
/ext/author_name/extension_name

For how to install an extension see, Installing Extensions.

Those top 3 are in the wrong place.
There will be an author name folder that they need to go in.

For instance, sitelogo would be in
ext/david63/sitelogo
**also note this from the download page
Note: Version 1.0.0 will not work with prosilver in phpBB 3.2 and above

Changelogo should be in /ext/cabot/changelogo

Did you look at the link I posted? From Installing Extensions
Inside your phpBB board's directory is an "ext" folder. This is the location where all extensions are stored. Every extension follows the same folder hierarchy in which extensions are grouped into folders by the author's vendor name. If you downloaded an extension named "foobar" from the author/vendor "acme" then it would be uploaded to "ext/acme/foobar". Any other extensions created by the author/vendor "acme" would also be stored in "ext/acme/".
You need to create the proper folder structure for the sitelogo, changelogo and whovisitedthistopic extensions.
