Read the manual, it's interesting and informative.
Don't rename it to .htm, that just confuses matters. Just link to www.top1deals.com/forums if need be.
You also need to sort out permissions so you don't need just idle threats to stop users creating threads in the wrong place.
Thank u very much for help..
I have already setup the forum., But i am not able to add my logo and all the buttons as my home, etc..
Could any one help this matter..
thanks for advance
You need to edit the template. Look at the files in template/subsilver.

Hahaha! I mock your google skills!
This is what you want (http://images.google.com/images?q=avatar&svnum=10&hl=en&lr=&sa=G&imgsz=).
Is there anyway to setup URL links (Insert URL Links)..
Like Top1Deals (http://www.Top1Deals.com)
In the Forum section, While Posting the thread.
This form When we enter new/reply post, If we want to enter the link/s then we can click here Insert Hyperlink (In this forum) but My forum is showing URL button, its not taking.
Ex: if we want to open some sites like : w.sitename. /somename/etc....
instead of this we can enter like somename

Ever heard of the "URL" button? Or the manual for that matter?
/notes down on the list of sites never to purchase from
If the "URL" button doesn't work, you most likely have broken it somehow (possibly by a script in the header?). Try reinstalling stock phpBB and trying again, if you don't know what it could have been.
URL links are working but if we want to enter new url link we have to enter name
Yes, this is correct behaviour.
Can we upload Attachments on the forum?
How to setup this option in phpbb forum?

Short answer: No.
Long answer: Yes, but you need to have about an hour spare and very good eyesight along with a competent knowledge of PHP and modifying PHPBB files.
Thanks Twey and Cr3ative.
I have downloaded the file but little bit confusion to me. How to install.
Now I am using PHPBB 2.0.18. Could you please give us any idea.
