Make sure you're not logged in. Administrators will always see the version.

When I try to go to other portions of my forum I am getting:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare nchatsettings() (previously declared in /home/content/21/6641821/html/forum/Sources/ManageSettings.php:2152) in /home/content/21/6641821/html/forum/Sources/ManageSettings.php on line 2262

When I remove NChat I get

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/content/21/6641821/html/forum/NChat/NChatBoardIndex.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/21/6641821/html/forum/Sources/Load.php(2181) : eval()'d code on line 20

How can I just remove this and get my forum back on track?

That's something over which you'll have to ask that modification author. I have no idea what NChat even is.

Hello .
I installed in my 2.0.10 without errors but can not find the settings in Admin panel and can not hide smf version .
where can i find the configuration ? ( 2.0.10 not have Admin -> Configuration -> Security & Moderation -> General )


Finaly i found in : forum  »Administration Center »Server Settings »Security

If this makes no real difference to hackers, then what is the point in hiding the SMF version?

That's really odd. My install of 2.0.10 has the exact path shown in the readme. There is certainly no security section under the "Server Settings" section.

It doesn't much, but some people are convinced it's useful. Rather than removing the version number from the SMF files, this at least provides a safe method to hide the version and hopefully lowers the number of people requesting support because they broke their SMF install by removing the version number.
