How To Customize Some Icy Phoenix Basics

This guide will help you customize a few Icy Phoenix basics.

  1. How do I change the site logo in my website banner?
  2. What is a favicon and how do I change mine?
  3. How do I change the sender of the "Welcome" private message?
  4. How do I change my website keywords, description, and various other information?



How do I change the site logo in my website banner?

You can change the site logo in your website banner by replacing the current graphic with your own.  Depending on your template title, this is the path you would upload your new logo: /templates/YOUR_STYLE/images/YOUR_STYLE_IMG_FOLDER/sitelogo_small.png

If you are simply replacing the default sitelogo_small.png graphic, you should make sure your logo is of the same filetype.  Notice the current filetype is .png.

If you wish to change the logo to a different filetype such .gif, .jpg, .PNG, .bmp, etc., open: ip_root/templates/default/default.cfg.

FIND:

Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
$images['sitelogo'] = $current_template_images . 'sitelogo_small.png';


CHANGE: (change the logo name to your logo name)

Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
sitelogo_small.png



What is a favicon and how do I change mine?

 abfavicon

A favicon is a website icon that is displayed in a website's address bar.  This is a favorite of many webmasters because when their website is set as a favorite or bookmarked, their favicon will appear next to the bookmark name in a browser's bookmarks.  This allows visitors to easily find the bookmarked website they want to visit.  Many webmasters use standard or animated favicons.

If you don't already have a favicon, you can create a small, usually 16x16 icon in programs such as Microsoft Paint or Adobe Photoshop.  The favicon can be saved in .ico if you have the plugin for it in Adobe Photoshop.  If you don't have Adobe Photoshop, you can still create your favicon using Microsoft Paint.

Once you have created your .jpg, .gif, .png icon, you can convert it to an .ico file here.

Rename the file, if it hasn't been done already, to favicon.ico.  Make sure it keeps the .ico file extension.

Upload this image to ip_root/images/.  Overwrite the old favicon.ico file already on your server.  You should now clear your website cache and close all browser windows.  The new favicon should now be seen when visiting your website.


How do I change the sender of the "Welcome" private message?

If you have access to the website database, run this query:

Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
UPDATE phpbb_config SET config_value = '2' WHERE config_name = 'main_admin_id';


Be sure to change the number 2 with the user ID of the account you wish for it to be sent from.


How do I change my website keywords, description, and various other information?

OPEN: ip_root/language/YOUR_LANGUAGE/lang_main_settings.php.

Feel free to change anything in this file!

Just to clarify one thing...

In constants.php you should also edit this line:
Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
define('FOUNDER_ID', '2');

The instructions weren't complete.

I If you want to add things to the h**p://***.freakybehavior.com/forum/ complete banner at the top, how do you do that?

I found the "top_header.png" and it repeats. But I want to change the middle part of the banner to read What's your Freak Song?TM at the top.
In this example, where the blue part of the banner at the top of the screen is located. How can I do that?

When I made a banner, the dimensions would only be 262x120. When I made it that size, it repeated. I changed the stylesheet to "no-repeat" and that didn't change anything.

HELP!!!

If we´re talking about IP 1.3.0.53

this is wrong

Code: [Download] [Hide]
  1. UPDATE phpbb_config SET config_value = '2' WHERE config_name = 'main_admin_id'; 


it should be

Code: [Download] [Hide]
  1. UPDATE ip_config SET config_value = '2' WHERE config_name = 'main_admin_id';

That depends what your table prefix is.

Maybe it's not phpBB_ or ip_...maybe it's lolwtf_...

When I changed this meta names and descriptions and look at the code of index page I saw only this
Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
<meta name="description" content="Форум профессиональных игроков в покер, турниры, обсуждения." />
<meta name="keywords" content="покер форум, пароли на фрироллы, фриролл вконтакте, фил хельмут, wsop, хенд, многостоловые турниры, nl holdem, сателлит, разборы рук, ребай турниры, сит-энд-гоу, stt турнир, хедз-ап, кеш игра, омаха, пот лимит, статьи по омахе, стратегия покера, покер румы онлайн, бездепозитные бонусы, супер бездеп, покерное видео, воды по мтт" />
<meta name="category" content="general" />

Why they not changing into russian letters? I edited lang_main_settings.php with notepad++ in original it was
$lang['Index'] = 'Покер форум';
$lang['Default_META_Keywords'] = 'покер форум, пароли на фрироллы, фриролл вконтакте, фил хельмут, wsop, хенд, многостоловые турниры, nl holdem, сателлит, разборы рук, ребай турниры, сит-энд-гоу, stt турнир, хедз-ап, кеш игра, омаха, пот лимит, статьи по омахе, стратегия покера, покер румы онлайн, бездепозитные бонусы, супер бездеп, покерное видео, воды по мтт';
$lang['Default_META_Description'] = 'Форум профессиональных игроков в покер, турниры, обсуждения.';

I guess the reason is that you are not using UTF-8 encoding and your lang files are not encoding using UTF-8.

First thing can be changed in lang_main_settings.php, second thing requires you to use an enhanced text editor, like the free PSPad for example (then you have to change your file encoding.).

Recursive utf8-encode function :).

Thank you for response, but when I translate other lang files in notepad++ they appear correct   The only problem is with main settings..
And when I paste russian text in smiley sreator it do not show letters correct too  

Informpro, should I paste this somewhere?

Which encoding you have for your current DB? UTF-8?

Smiley creator uses fonts and GD lib... not all fonts have russian chars and not all GD Libraries versions support TTF. I think that the only thing you can do is edit the core code by adding a Russian capable font to output the text.

how can I change the sender of the "Welcome" private message, without the new sender be main_admin?

example.
main_admin is Costa ID2
sender of the "Welcome" private message, to be MySite ID 300 (and can be a admin ths nick name without any problem, but not main admin)
