    wah... so many subforums!

    need to design a new logo, very good one, ask for mysticmind assistance, he is our Photoshop's expert in case you need some help.

    get more members, what to debate with only 10 people?

    Hi Mysticmind, thanks for the comment or the lack of it

    I am having a major problem not knowing how to edit the default phpbb template right now. PHPBB uses *.tpl files not .html files so I don't know how to edit on a WYSWYG editor. I wish it is as easy as tweaking the design on an html page.

    Also, ardiles mentions that you are PS expert. Any words of wisdom or design suggestions?

    Regarding invisionpowerboard, is it free? I got phpbb only because it is free, but it has serious limitations, like very difficult to install a file upload/photo attachement feature. Do you know if invision is free and it has more user-friendly customization procedures?

    aiya.. comment ah? hmmm... tak tau la nak komen apa.. the layout is the original template bah, so nothing to comment! mcm mysticmind ckp, be more creative..buat theme sendiri.. at least la ko modified color theme ke...

    and kalau boleh letak header or banner at the top! so, tak lah empty sangat without any infomation.. yg gambar atas kiri tu better replace with logo.. overall, layout kena upgrade sket..k!

    Try to seperate your topics.... to modify tpl is not difficult, as long as you know html.

    hi guys, thanks for the comments.

    But the thing is, this php *.tpl stuff at the moment is beyond me. I know what need to be changed but don't know how! :O

    Do you think if I can open the *.tpl files in an WYSWYG editor, like Dreamweaver or Frontpage? I thought I read somewhere that you are not supposed to edit the *.tpl files with Dreamweaver and FP??

    good improvement there.. errr... dont you think the image on the right is a bit "spoiled"..? in my oppinion, the logo color at left is match already.. but suddenly my eyeView is interrupted by a Box of Image with Green theme on the right.. and 1 thing, dont you think the logo/image is BIG..?

    Yes I agree the "green" may not be matching, will look for other images. Also my monitor resolution is quite high, so it appears just "normal" to me.

    But in the meantime, anybody has suggestions as to how to promote a site like that, to get discussions going?

    custom made theme mean..
    design your own graphic.
    slice it, make it on html.
    then adjust it into the phpbb theme lah~

    // the *.tpl file in phpbb

    i have experienced using phpbb about 2 ++ year at my forum before if not mistaken since version 1.0.4 ( old version).

    then i found (actually recommend by MHR) IPB (invision power board) is better. Exspecially by the advanced admin section and more secure also easy to manage and creating theme.

    In phpbb, the *.tpl is stand for TEMPLATE file.
    Even it was a HTML based languange, but there's something to take attention about using comment tag <!-- blablabla -->
    The comment tag has ben change to command line!
    <!-- start if user login --> something like that. ( i'm not really remember the command)
    if the <!-- is not on the list, the forum will return some error like : critical error! duhhh..

    in another part is, while change the template, you'll need to download it manually, edit the theme also manual then upload again and again.. thats what i hate to do..

    Ok lah~
    Try do you own theme, life and learn friend..
    The hard thing will make you more and more confidence and 'know how and what to do'.
    It's not an easy matter to be a webmaster instead.
    Gud luck!

    Hi mysticmind, thanks for the tips. I will try out your suggestions.

    And yes I agree with you, invision power board is much better, I also want it. But it also costs money to install, and since my site is running on non-profit basis right now, I cannot justify the cost. Unless I am missing something here?
