ok, like he said, all of that is beyond what we can help you with.
the only point of using that method to create a custom page is so that you can use the phpbb sessions/permissions/header and footer for the custom page.
now what you have to do is figure out all the php/database stuff for what you want and them put it all in that custom html page.
if you want to use php in that html page you will have to make sure you turn on that capability in the admin panel under security settings.
then you have to use the correct variables for it to work.
I wish you luck with it,
I am available for custom work on a donation basis. Please send me a PM with your needs.
