you must have edit out a code or something you had in there?
it's hard to tell what you did with out having the forum link and knowing what you had in there to begin with?

always copy things the original way to a notepad or text file first,
This way if you do make a mistake with something you can always go back and retrieve the original coding/content you have in there.

Yeah, this is just weird!
I always keep a copy of my codes, but the thing is, I wasn't messing with my css. I'll try to figure this out myself, too, because I do understand that you can't get an easy answer for things like this.....

Oh yes! and here is my forum.

I'll take one last look at my css...but I have a feeling it was something I selected in the ACP because that was what I was doing atm.

Ok, so I took a look at my CSS and nothing looked bazaar, but I am now 99% sure it was something I did in ACP. I was editing General and Display at the time and only noticed the homepage message after I edited it.
Now I will take a look at my ACP...

Hi,

Were you making any template changes, if so was it just the index_box?

No issues at all Smile
Simply restore it to default ( Hit the X) and start again.
The code for the current date & time is
<td valign="bottom">
<!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->
<span class="gensmall">{LAST_VISIT_DATE}

{CURRENT_TIME}

</span>
<!-- END switch_user_logged_in -->

you can modify around that if you wish Smile

If you like, I can assist you, just let me know what you want to do Cool

The header & footer shouldn't interfere though ...

That's alright, I'm going to attempt to find the css code for phpbb2 for the time/date just to have a test.
Go back to your template Index_box
Do you immediately see

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" align="center">
<tr>
<td valign="bottom">
<!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->
<span class="gensmall">{LAST_VISIT_DATE}<br />

</span>
<!-- END switch_user_logged_in -->
<div class="nav"><a class="nav" href="{U_INDEX}">{L_INDEX}</a>{NAV_CAT_DESC}</div>
</td>
<td class="gensmall" align="right" valign="bottom">
<!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->
<a class="gensmall" href="{U_SEARCH_NEW}">{L_SEARCH_NEW}</a><br />
<a class="gensmall" href="{U_SEARCH_SELF}">{L_SEARCH_SELF}</a><br />
<!-- END switch_user_logged_in -->
<a class="gensmall" href="{U_SEARCH_UNANSWERED}">{L_SEARCH_UNANSWERED}</a>
</td>
</tr>
</table>


If not, do you see this?
<!-- BEGIN catrow --><!-- BEGIN tablehead --><table class="forumline" width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">

Sorry about the delay, I'm working extremely long back to back shifts and I'm quite tired.

What I don't get s that you have the applicable code, yet it isn't displaying?

Just for a test; Can you restore the theme back to default (But save a copy of it!!)
Admin panel >> Display > Choose a theme > Version > Use default theme > Save.
Check if the date is now applying, and if it is, apply the theme you currently use.

If the date still doesn't show up, use a skin from the "themes" option, their basic, but all also incorporate the default values.
If then, it still isn't displaying, the issue is with your CSS Not displaying it, and Ill have to find the code for you.

Sorry about the delay Sukki,

I think I've figured out the issue, is that big clock with the sun/moon from the homepage message, or templates?
It might be easier to insert it via templates, which I believe would restore the time & date back to it's default time.

If you con provide me the code that it's currently using, I can divy up the best way to have the time & that clock. I can't promise you that Ill have the time in the perfect spot, but Ill try my best Wink
P.S. It's my day off work for the week, so I'll be 'round here Mr. Green

Hm, I'm unable to replicate the issue at this point, though, Im working on about 5 hrs sleep over 48hrs Mr. Green

Are you sure your templates are set at default and there's no codes in the site description. Admin panel >> General > Forum/config > Site Desc.
Could you also check for any codes in the scrolling announces?
Admin panel >> General > Announces.

Sorry for taking so long to figure this out, it's stumped me.

EDIT: How about this as a possible solution.

Head to the message where u got the clock and such from, copy & remove it.
Paste into a word document.

Head to your templates; index_Box, locate the following code:
<!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->
<span class="gensmall">{LAST_VISIT_DATE}<br>
{CURRENT_TIME}<br>
</span>
<!-- END switch_user_logged_in -->


Highlight it, save it to a notepad document.

Now, head back to the template index_body, you should pretty quickly see this 2 lines
<!-- END message_admin_index -->

<!-- BEGIN switch_user_login_form_header -->



paste this in the space
Code:
 <div style="text-align: left; margin-left: 40px;"><img src="http://i26.servimg.com/u/f26/15/26/54/38/clock-10.gif" alt="" border="0"><span style="color: Orange;"></span><font size="5"><span style="font-family: Comic Sans MS;"><span style="font-weight: bold;"><span style="color: Black;"><span style="color: Magenta;">Welcome To The Town! </span></span></span></span></font><!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->
         <span class="gensmall">{LAST_VISIT_DATE}<br>
         {CURRENT_TIME}<br>
         </span>
         <!-- END switch_user_logged_in --><br><font size="5"><span style="font-family: Comic Sans MS;"><span style="font-weight: bold;"><span style="color: Black;"><span style="color: Magenta;"></span></span></span></span></font><font size="5"><span style="font-family: Comic Sans MS;"><span style="font-weight: bold;"><span style="color: Black;"><span style="color: Magenta;"></span></span></span></span></font></div> <img style="visibility: hidden; width: 0px; height: 0px;" visibility:hidden;width:0px;height:0px;="" src="http://c.gigcount.com/wildfire/IMP/CXNID=2000002.0NXC/bT*xJm%0A%3Cimg%20style=" border="0" height="0" width="0"><div style="" center;="" margin-left:="" auto;="" visibility:="" visible;="" margin-=""></div>

now, save & Publish the template.

Do you see it now?
If so great, I just have 1 minor modification left to make Lol



Also, Gangstar15 has confirmed that there's no CSS code for PHPBB2 for the time to display.

EDIT2: Ive got an idea, and a bucketload of ways to do it up, I just want it how you currently had it, but can't quite got there just yet, but I need some sleep. See you tomorrow!

EDIT3: I won't attempt those idea's until you can confirm the above works Wink

Um, are you sure your looking at the index_box template, and that your version is PHPBB2?

By any chance, is the template modified, or still at default?

If you don't want it anymore please just say so Wink

Are you looking at two templates: index_box and index_body?

index_box -
<!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->
<span class="gensmall">{LAST_VISIT_DATE}<br>
{CURRENT_TIME}<br>
</span>
<!-- END switch_user_logged_in -->

index_body is the second part.

Alright, we can go to my 2nd idea, nothing to worry about just yet Wink

Please make a copy of your modifications and where you put them, most likely into a notepad/wordpad.
Restore your template index_box to default by clicking on the X
Please do not insert your personal modifications just yet
Locate
Code:

{LAST_VISIT_DATE}

{CURRENT_TIME}


Remove/Delete it.

Replace it with this:
Code:

[table border="1"][tr][td]IMAGE HERE[/td][td]Welcome to the forum!
[/td][td]{CURRENT_TIME} [/td][/tr][/table]

Which will pan out to be:

IMAGE HEREWelcome to the forum!
{CURRENT_TIME}
(the time stamp will work on the templates however, as they don't work in posts TT

If it works out now, insert your modifications, if not, let us know Smile

Did you want me to get rid of the current homepage message or keep it. And did you want me to fill in the blanks here:
Code:

[table border="1"][tr][td]IMAGE HERE[/td][td]Welcome to the forum!
[/td][td]{CURRENT_TIME} [/td][/tr][/table]
Because it is turning out as words next to the time.
