    Before you can add this item you have to make the following edit.

    Open ./Skin/s#/skin_topic.php

    Find:

    {$author['name']}


    Replace With:

    {$author['name_prefix']}{$author['name']}{$author['name_suffix']}


    Open ./sources/Topics.php

    Find:

    m.signature, m.website,


    Replace With:

    m.signature, m.website,m.name_prefix,m.name_suffix,


    Save and reupload all the files and you are done.

    You find them in your forum directory, via FTP.

    Your FTP is the location of all of the files on your server. You can find the files you are looking for in your FTP under your forum directory.

    Are you using Invisionfree? Invisionfree does not allow FTP modifications.

    When you get your hosting you usually get FTP access (username/password) you use that to log into your directory for the site - Well you should have used FTP when you were installing IPB unless as said invisionfree doesnt allow ftp mods

    FTP has nothing to do with adminCP of IPB :) FTP stores files/folders that you upload and you edit the files that you got with IPB

    Download a free FTP and login in with the details your host should have gave you.
