Solved I made changes to my forum address which I would like to revert back please

Post by Stuart_2015 on Tue Oct 13 2015, 18:40

Technical Details


Forum version : #phpBB3
Position : Founder
Concerned browser(s) : Mozilla Firefox
Who the problem concerns : Yourself
When the problem appeared : I made changes to the main page which I now regret
Forum link : ( link is hidden, you must reply to see )

Description of problem

Confused
Hello

I do not have any experience at all relating to forum set-up so with very slow progress
I recently set up a forum that I was quite proud of, however I tried with ever increasing confidence to change the forum appearance by entering the name of the forum into the top position replacing the forumotion address.
Unbeknown to me of what would result through my actions I then had two rectangle shaped boxes appear on the heading page entitled ‘download’ and ‘play now’ where my original forum name had been, this action by me has resulted in a not so attractive appearance, I wish I had not been so bold in trying to alter my forum page.
I would like to alter the page to how it was originally and I seek your help to achieve this if possible. Embarassed

Stuart

Hello,

If you are the founder, you can perform a restore of the forum appearance in the forum utilities: http://www.forumotion.com/utils by going into your backups and restoring them. Wink

What you are describing, however, sounds like an ad. In which case you have no control over and can't change it. Sad

Hello Brandon
Information received informs me that I can purchase credits to remove these ads, are you aware of this as I intend to proceed to do just this and would value your advise first.

Well yes, you can remove all ads via credits, I simply meant you couldn't control which ads appear and which ads didn't. Buying credits is not a practical solution for some folks, that is why I always proceed the assumation they are using a free forum service and might not be able to afford otherwise Very Happy.

Alright then, let us know. If the outcome is successful, along with a reply, just hit the 'Mark as solved' button in the corner to mark it solved, so a staff know to move it it Wink.
