Hi,

There are a couple of options, one of which is to edit your templates yourself and paste in the advertising code you need. otherwise, there are a couple of plugins you can use such as MyAdvertisements.

What kind of security advice do you need?

Well thank you. By the way can i transfer whole forum files into another server without installing? For security, protect from script kiddies and beginners. I want to make my forum special. As i thought if i have increased my security by changing basic(default) settings, No one would use casual exploit that has been known by public.

Yep, you should be able to - just remember to backup your database and transfer it across too.

For enhanced security, remember to use a strong unique password (preferably from a password manager such as LastPass or KeePass). Additionally, renaming the administrator directory can help: http://blog.mybb.com/2008/02/06/securing...tallation/
