phpBB 3.0 Tutorial

This tutorial explains how to add custom links to header of your phpBB 3.0 forum.

Adding Links

Open overall_header.html in a text editor, find these lines:

<!-- IF not S_USER_LOGGED_IN -->
  <a href="{U_FAQ}" title="{L_FAQ_EXPLAIN}"><span></span>{L_FAQ}</a>
<!-- ENDIF -->
and add a line like this after it:

<a href=""><span></span>Artodia</a>
Replace link and text with correct values. Make sure to keep "span" tag and close it before link text.


If after editing template files you do not see changes, go to admin control panel and click "purge cache" button on admin control panel's main page.

If after editing template files your header is messed up, you most likely have used incorrect editor that messed up code. Use only simple text editors to edit template files, such as Notepad or TextEdit. Do not use FrontPage, Expression or Dreamweaver unless you know how to use them.

If you have any questions or ran into problems, please post your questions on support forum.
