As a final step, we have to update the osDate template. Open the "templates/default-blue/panelmenu.tpl" file using a good text editor, like Textpad. Change the /forum/osdate_login.php reference to "/forum/flashbb/index.html", as shown below.

Finally, login to your osDate admin panel, and switch from your current template to any other template, then back to your current template. For example, if you're using default-blue, switch to black-grey, then back to default-blue. This will cause the updated .tpl files to be re-loaded, with the change that you made to panelmenu.tpl. Login using a valid, registered user name. In the Member Panel, the Forum link will now load FlashBB instead of phpBB.

Lastly I can't emphasize this enough

Admin Extra Protection On All Admin folders

It is also Highly Recommended to add a .htaccess lock to add further protection to all admin areas!

How to protect the .htaccess files also further.

Add this to the .htaccess file.
Code: [Select]
###############################
#Prevent viewing of .htaccess file.
################################

<Files .htaccess>
order allow,deny
deny from all
</Files>

################################
# PROTECT .htaccess and .htpasswd FILES
################################

<FilesMatch "^\.ht">
  Order allow,deny
  Deny from all
</FilesMatch>

Please make the .htaccess file un-writable once it has been setup.

If you don't know how, ask your hosts support.
