Hi APE:
That's the skin in my forum now but if you click on Paulines Backgrounds then click on one of the backgrounds there you will see what I mean. My backgrounds have all turned to codes and don't know why. I could see them all before and now I can't.

ok when we say test account we mean you make a new account in any name then you add it to the admin setting in your ACP then PM the account username and password.

We then log in on that test account and take a look at some settings then report back here to you on what we find.

But forget about that I think I know what the problem is.

When you changed the skin/theme on your forum you had Phpbb2 forum Now I think you have phpbb3

to tell me if this is right please do the following.

log in as founder / Admin then go to ACP >> Display tab >>
Scroll down the page and look for this part
find : Theme version then tell me what it says to the right of that.

it should look like this


tell me what it say's on the right hand side

Okay that is why them the codes you have are made for Phpbb2 not phpBB3 if you look at your codes you have this
Code:
<table background="https://s20.postimg.org/f846rzs8t/imageproxy.php59.gif" border="0" cellpadding="5" width="100%"><tr><td width="100%" align="center"><table background="https://s20.postimg.org/h1botn2ot/snow_zps757a0b0c.jpg" border="0" cellpadding="50" width="100%"><tr><td width="100%" align="center"><table background="https://s20.postimg.org/f846rzs8t/imageproxy.php59.gif" border="0" cellpadding="5" width="100%" ><tr><td width="100%" align="center"><table background="" bgcolor="#ffffff" border="0" cellpadding="10" width="100%"><tr><td width="100%" align="center">



Background Created by Pauline Feb.11, 2018

</td></tr></table></td></tr></table></td></tr></table></td></tr></table>

the code should look like this in PHPBB3
Code:
[table background="https://s20.postimg.org/f846rzs8t/imageproxy.php59.gif" border="0" cellpadding="5" width="100%"][tr][td width="100%" align="center"][table background="https://s20.postimg.org/h1botn2ot/snow_zps757a0b0c.jpg" border="0" cellpadding="50" width="100%"][tr][td width="100%" align="center"][table background="https://s20.postimg.org/f846rzs8t/imageproxy.php59.gif" border="0" cellpadding="5" width="100%" ][tr][td width="100%" align="center"][table background="" bgcolor="#ffffff" border="0" cellpadding="10" width="100%"][tr][td width="100%" align="center"]



Background Created by Pauline Feb.11, 2018

[/td][/tr][/table][/td][/tr][/table][/td][/tr][/table][/td][/tr][/table]

If you look in the first code you have something like this
Code:
<table>
Now This is PhPBB2 format

Now if you look at the next code it has something like this
Code:
[table]
This is PHPBB3 format

you will have to change all the codes you have to the new format

So all the codes with < and > in will have to be changed to [ and ]

Hi Ape:
I get what you are saying but I just changed my forum to PhpBB2, so the backgrounds should show but they are not. It's alot of fooling around to change all the codes I have there. The code I have is for phpBB2. But what I want to know is, I made them when my forum was phpBB2 and they were all showing fine till I put up a new skin. That's when they all went to codes like that. There should be another easier way to bring them back, is there? If not, I have to delete them all and start over again, which I didn't want to do.
