PHP BB

phpbb is a full featured user forum ready for use on your website. Listed here are some issues and questions raised by our TCH users.

Replace default phpbb logo

Users ask if they can replace the default phpbb logo with their own web site's logo. Sure you can! Just overwrite logo_phpbb.gif with your own logo and upload it to:

templates/subSilverimages and call it logo_phpbb.gif

Modifying the Header or Footer section

Users who want to modify the header or footer section of phpbb will try looking for this in the phpbb admin panel but it's not there. This information is stored in template files. The two files, overall_header.tpl and overall_footer.tpl, can be found within the ..templates/subSilver/ directory on your web site.

The phpbb user forum contains detailed instructions on how to modify these files.

Problem with wrong time (zone) displaying

phpbb provides for configuring the time zone for both the system (server) and for each user. If the time is off, we recommend the following:

- Set the system wide time to GMT (General Admin > Configuration Control Panel)
- Then allow each user to update their own time zone preference in user profile
