The following guide will help you with the removal of the Author/Message heading for phpbb2. Which will help you achieve the following:

Before making any changes, be sure that your forum meets the following conditions:
1.) You must be the founder of the forum and have access to its templates
2.) Your forum version must be phpBB2
Editing the viewtopic_body template
Go to Administration Panel > Display > Templates > General and open the template called viewtopic_body by clicking the modify cog.()

Locate this part of the template which displays the Author and message heading. It is the one that is right below the variable {POLL_DISPLAY}
 <th class="thLeft" nowrap="nowrap" width="150px" height="26">{L_AUTHOR}</th>
 <th class="thRight" nowrap="nowrap" colspan="2">{L_MESSAGE}</th>

If you wish to remove the Author and Message heading completely delete the part above from the template.

If you wish to just display the "message" heading replace the part above with the following:
 <th class="thRight" nowrap="nowrap" colspan="2">{L_MESSAGE}</th>

Doing so will help you achieve this:

Do not forget to save the changes to your template and check to see if you're satisfied with the outcome by clicking "Waiting " if you are be sure to click the "" to publish the new template. If you're experienced in HTML you can add your own special twist to this header if you desire, good luck on your forums! Wink
