#1
Welcome To My Tutorial
I'll be showing you how to fix some errors / problems you may get well using MyBB.
I'll also have a few how to's in here.


1. Remove Date User Joined In Post

Go to

Admin CP -> Templates & Styles -> "Your Theme" -> Post Bit Templates -> Postbit_author_user

Remove {$lang->postbit_joined} and save.


2. Disable A Attachment Type

Go to

Admin CP -> Configurations -> Attachment Types

Now you can remove / add new attachment types.


3. Disable All Plugins At Once

Go to

Admin CP -> Configurations -> General Configurations

and now go down until you see "Disable All Plugins" and click "Yes" and save.


4. Configure Search Friendly URLs

Go to

Admin CP -> Configurations -> Server and Optimization Options

Then change "Enable search engine friendly URLs?" to "Enable" Once this setting is enabled you need to make sure you have the MyBB .htaccess in your MyBB root directory (or the equivalent for your web server). Automatic detection may not work on all servers. Please see the MyBB Docs for assistance.


5. Database Error
"MyBB has experienced an internal SQL error and cannot continue.
SQL Error:1045 - Access denied for user [email=foo_mybb'@'localhost]'foo_mybb'@'localhost'[/email] (using password: YES)Query:[READ] Unable to connect to MySQL server
Please contact the MyBB Group for technical support."

To fix

7. Change The Text on MyBB landing/Login Page

The content is from header_welcomeblock_guest template of the theme.
