Using English as board language


Viesti admin » elo 23, 2009, 18.56

It is now possible to use (American) English as the default language in Potku. However, since the template is unique (designed for phpBB 3 by our user flammee from a template for phpBB 2), some of the key functions are available only in Finnish.

UPDATE Aug. 23, 2009: The template has now been updated. This template is the work of egg.

UPDATE Aug. 18, 2016: The template has been updated.

In forum view, UUSI AIHE stands for Post New Topic, and in topic view, VASTAA VIESTIIN equals Reply To Topic.

There are others, but these are the most important ones.
MUOKKAUS: UPDATE: Aug. 18, 2016: Using English will load the approriate buttons in English.

Upon registering, you must first accept the terms in Finnish. It is the top button of the two in the bottom of the form. It says: "Hyväksyn ehdot ja olen vähintään 15-vuotias". Once you have clicked that, you will see the registration form in Finnish. Go straight to Kieli and choose English from the drop-down menu. After that, you are taken back to the registration terms page, but now you can read the terms in English. Read the terms carefully, and accept them if you agree with them.

At this point, you will run in to an obstacle you cannot tackle unless you know Finnish. There is an antibot question that must be answered correctly. The correct answer to that question is simply: 99
You will surely see the question there.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us: admin at
We will be glad to help you.

After becoming a member of Potku, you can start topics and post replies in English as you wish. Most people here understand and speak English, so you will surely receive replies to your comments and questions.

You can contact the administrators or the moderators for any reason at any time. They will assist you promptly.

Have fun! :)
