d. Clear your phpBB cache

phpBB features a cache system that creates static copies of the used files. One of the most common reasons that something doesn't work or a change isn't reflected is because your phpBB is displaying an old, cached version of a changed file.

Login to your phpBB administration contral panel (ACP) and on the index page of that area, you will see your Board statistics. Below that is an area titled Resynchronise or reset statistics. This area features a series of Run now buttons. Press the button next to Purge the cache, confirm your decision and your cache will be refreshed.

2. Setup

After having installed the OneAll Social Sharing Icons on your phpBB forum you need to enter your OneAll API subdomain in order to enable the plugin. If you already have a subdomain that you are using for any of our other services, then please use that subdomain. No need to create a new one!

How to create an API Subdomain?

  1. Login to your existing OneAll account or alternatively create a new account.
  2. Click on Sites in the left navigation bar,
  3. Click on the name of your site (If you do not have a site yet, please create a new site first),
  4. Copy & paste the Subdomain into the Social Sharing settings in the OneAll Social Sharing Settings area.
