Hello all!

I'm scripting some automation for my forum and need to know where the "forum introduction body" for each forum is stored. I cannot find a field for it in the database.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply.

I did some more searching and found that the "forum introduction body" field for each forum is stored in this directory:

website-root/ubbthreads/includes

It is stored with the file name:

intro_<Forum Number>.php

So the "forum introduction body" for forum #101 would be named:

intro_101.php


Today they call you "crazy".
Tomorrow they call you "ahead of your time".

you are correct it is also stored as a php file

FYI
In that folder you will also find your headers footers as well as board rules and community intro.
And more important your config file.
config.inc.php

For people that do not like to backup ,this folder is a must to be able to restore files from as well as the styles folder and avatars and attachments.
The rest can be the stock files from the member section..
But you still need a database backup
