My odoo version is 'Odoo Server 8.0-9d0bd28'.

I did like below, but I could not find any change for the part.

  1. Changed some part of addons/website_forum/views/website_forum.xml and saved.
  2. Upgraded Forum module.



Hi Taenam, if this solves the problem, can you please mark answer as correct?

Views from "website_forum" you find in "Settings/User interface/Views" with filter "QWeb". After edition in this place restart is not necessary.

Hi , Taenam

did you restart server, before upgrading module?

Restart server and upgrade module from

Settings==> module--> Upgrade

You can upgrade your module along with restart of server. Use the command to upgrade the module in your addons while restarting the  server. Please follow the command below. 

./openerp-server -u your_module_name -d your_database_name.

I have found another way to adapt website with HTML editing with no upgrade and no restart server.

I used 'Customize > HTML editor' which is in right side of upper forum page.


I guess website_forum.xml data of Odoo is saved into DB.

If anybody know where website_forum.xml data is in the table of db, please let me know the information.

@Taenam, If you are running on a local instance of Odoo (ie. not a SaaS/Online offering), I'd recommend making your changes in a module rather than in the GUI for Odoo. Changes made inside a database will only be useable in that database. Creating a module means it is easy to use the changes on multiple databases and is the better option if you are running on a local instance.
