Help me editing footer - phpBB

Discussion in 'phpBB' started by MervikHaums, Oct 26, 2009.

    Hi there,

    installed a phpbb forum to one of our sites. When a new style has been added to the forum, the footer shows two lines. One about phpbb and the other line is about the developer of the theme. Though I don't want to delete the footer, need to make the two sentences a single sentence. Could you please tell how to edit the footer?

    PS: I 've already edited the overall footer file and simple footer file. But it is the same yet, didn't work.. Please help me..Thanks..

    Not if you turn on the "Cache" templates option automatically in the ACP ;)

    Admin Panel -> General Tab -> Load Settings -> Recompile Style Components -> Yes

    If you do that, any changes made offline and uploaded via FTP will instantly take effect. Other than that you could make sure the styles directory is writable then use the code editor in the Admin Panel which actually isn't very good. :rolleyes:

    It doesn't really matter to be honest. You might as well keep it turned on so that if you want to make any quick changes in the future you can just download, modify and upload the changed files. No messing around with having to change any other settings etc...;)
