Open the styles imageset folder.
Duplicate /en and rename the copy to /en_us

You're using the US English language pack but probably have not got the imageset for the buttons.

I'm sorry but your talking to someone who has no clue about phpbb. :/ explain in more detail what I need to do.

Is this in ACP or phpmyadmin or where?

What do I duplicate? What do I change?

Thanks.

You need to access your web server using FTP, and copy the contents of the folder that Kevin mentioned.
Alternatively, just make everyone use British English, because US English was not correctly installed on your board. Copying the folder is required to correct the faulty install of US English.

Neither.

The files on the server.

This is the problem when you install with fantastico rather than doing it yourself.
You need to find where on the server it has put the files.
Then you need to open the styles/stylename/imageset folder

In there is a folder called /en
It contains all the button images for British English.
Your board is running American English but doesn't have the images for it.
So you need to duplicate that /en folder and rename the copy to /en_us and all the buttons will appear.

If you don't know how to get to the files on the server, ask your hosts.
