Re: Ok new problem major error

They need to be entered into the config.php. If you still get the same error that you reported at the start of this topic, the username and password are not what you think they are. That's why someone asked whether they were changed.

Re: Adding HTML Code to overall header

Alright. Well, this board is not really for HTML help, although someone may be inclined to help you. I would suggest you also try and look for HTML resources, though. Good luck.

Re: Ok new problem major error

The information in the config.php needs to match the credentials needed to access your database. It is like you having to have a username and password to access this website; if you don't have the correct password to match your username, you will not be allowed access to this website. The same is tr...

Re: Registering interest to a hidden forum

I suggest you work with user groups. If you want people to get approval, make it so they can apply for membership to the group, but a group leader needs to approve it. If it's just a matter of giving people access as soon as they request it, you can also make a user group open, so that people can jo...

Re: Adding HTML Code to overall header

The code is located in <your style>/template/overall_header.html. Editing that should be pretty self-explanatory if you know some HTML. After making your changes, don't forget to clear the board's cache (e.g. by clicking the button on the ACP main page).

Re: Visual Confirmation Works on Some Computers, not Others

You are using the simple variant of the phpBB CAPTCHA. IIRC, you do not need GD for that. Chances are you just do not have GD library installed. BTW, the advanced CAPTCHA is much better. The one you are using is the same as the one which was in phpBB2, and it has been compromised a long time ago. It...

Re: Visual confirmation not working?

Under the Format menu in Notepad++, you will find several encoding options. One is "UTF-8", one is "UTF-8 without BOM". You need to select the latter, then save the file.

Re: Unable to complete install process

A few things. 1) Get a tool like phpMyAdmin if your host doesn't provide it (they very well might, look for links like database administration or MySQL administration). Have a look in your database, because I suspect you now have several installations that were executed halfway through (indicator: t...

Re: Visual confirmation not working?

is there any benefit of having the visual confirmation working? Visual confirmation (also known as CAPTCHA) is meant to thwart automated registrations, used primarily to get an account on your board that can then be used to automatically post advertisement messages. AKA: spamming :) If you switch i...

Re: Force location on registration ?

This is not possible without some customization. One way to do it would be to remove the regular Location field from all template files (so it is not displayed anywhere) and add a new custom profile field to contain the same information. This you can then set to be required at registration. You migh...
