How to Remove Powered by PhpBB

PhpBB, the free, open-source online community management system, or message board, comes with a "Powered by PhpBB" message posted at the bottom of the forum with a hyperlink to the PhpBB website. You can easily modify the template to remove this message. By doing so, however, keep in mind that you'll be unable to use the PhpBB support forums for assistance if you run into problems.
