Re: Admin login does not see ACP

How did you install your board? I used a tool provided by my host [snip] What actions did you take (updating your board; installing a MOD, style or extension; etc.) prior to this problem becoming noticeable? Fresh install. Dreamhost's install script prompts for administrator user name and password....

Re: Inactive Users Manual Activation Message

If account activation is set to "by admin", then users will get an e-mail when an administrator approves the account. For any other account activation setting, you will need an extension.

Re: Enable emoji's inside the Subject lines?

Pretty sure this would require an extension. It doesn't look like smilies are supported either.

Re: ADblock rewrite vulnerability

Does this affect a phpBB install? How exactly would it affect a regular phpBB install. Adblock Plus works off of advertisement domains and as of the latest update, shouldn't be an issue. "It is our responsibility to protect our users, and despite the actual risk being very low, we have decided to r...

Re: HTTP ERROR 500 after installing new style

For example, on our site we have our site-specific style, which inherits from proFlat, and proFlat in turn inherits from proSilver. But we don't intend for users to be able to select either "proFlat" or "proSilver". So both are set to "Deactivate", but this does not disable successful inheritance :...

installed a new style (Basic), made it default and deactivated prosilver
Basic uses template inheritance, so prosilver needs to be enabled for it to work.

Re: Updating the DB for transition from phpBB 2.0.14 to 3.2.5

1. Backup of the database: 1.a. Backup type: Full, Structure only, or Data only? 1.b. File type: gzip or text? 1.c. Action: Store file locally or Download? (Or both?) 1.a) I would do a full backup. 1.b) Your preference. 1.c) In case something happens, download (or both). The part about the command ...

I'm using a 3rd party class to allow logging in and account creation from my ASP.NET website.
If possible, try account creation using the user_add() function from phpBB. See if that makes any difference.
