If you choose MySQL you need to create the database in advance

create database <databasename> default character set 'UTF8';
and you need to update the database script at
  • open <tomcat>/webapps/jforum/WEB-INF/config/database/mysql/mysql_db_struct.sql with vi
  • replace all occurences of 'TYPE=' and 'Type=' with 'ENGINE='
:%s/TYPE=/ENGINE=/
:%s/Type=/ENGINE=/

Language#

In the configuration you can choose a locale, but this refers only to text (java.properties).
If you chose anything else than en_US then you miss all images !
You can find them in the source code zip under \templates\default\images !
You can copy all those to \images and may adjust those images with english text inside.

See https://github.com/mrdon/jforum-plugins/tree/master/templates/default/images

Forum Icon (favicon.ico)#

Insert in <head> of webContent/templates/default/header.htm

<link rel="icon" href="${contextPath}/images/anything.ico" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="${contextPath}/images/anything.ico" />

Replace/Add logo.jpg in webContent/templates/default/images

HTML#

HTML tags can be used, but only those allowed in webContent/WEB-INF/config/SystemGlobals.properties
# Allowed HTML tags to be used when posting a message
html.tags.welcome = u, a, img, i, u, li, ul, font, br, p, b, hr
