How to Remove Powered by PhpBB

  • Print this article

PhpBB is an open-source online community management system with a built-in message board. The forum, unlike some of its competitors, is free to use. By default, the PhpBB forum comes with a "Powered by PhpBB" message posted at the bottom of the forum. This text contains a hyperlink to the PhpBB website. You can easily modify the template to remove this message; however, you'll be unable to use the PhpBB support forums for assistance if you have problems.
