I see few questions gets repeated and i thought of starting this F.A.Q so people can get basic help here. The F.A.Q's are not in specific order. So kindly do search within the post.

1) How to change the news?


Log into your Administrator Panel and then.  Main -> News and Newsletters -> News

Just delete all the news and the News bar will be removed.

3) How do i change Forum name?

Login to your Administrator Panel and go to Configuration and in that Server Settings. Now change the forum name as you like.

4) How do i grab Favicon or image when posting the website url in Social Media?

In index.template.php add

<link rel="shortcut icon" sizes="196x196" href="' . $context['favicon'] . '" />

5) No permission to access Database while using Importer

You may get permission error when you use Importer to import from "X" software to ElkArte. All you have to do is, give ElkArte Database User the access to "X software Database Name.

6) How do i change the favicon in my theme?

Just go the images folder of your theme and replace the image name "mobile.png" with your favicon image (remember the file name should be same)

7) How to add my custom css code without making changes to the default css file?

Create a file named "custom.css" in the same directory of the index.css of your theme , ElkArte will automatically pick it and use is in addition to the index.css.

Example: In the following path default/css/_besocial/ there should be a file named custom_besocial.css, this one will be picked and used together with index_besocial.css (Credits to emanuele)
