Well, clearly I should have looked here earlier. :? All right, given that I have deleted users (registered but non-activated, so no posts by them exist), what should I do to clean up the other two tables? There have been a lot (probably hundreds) of deleted entries from my "_users" table using phpMy...

You need to chmod the directory ... not a file within that directory. So instead of going into images/avatars and selecting index.html ... just go into images, and select avatars object. Change that object's permissions to 777. If you physically own/control the server machine, you can change the gro...

Using CSS to reduce bandwidth... problems

Okay... I'm looking to cut down on the bandwidth for my site, and the ~8Kb that's in the style-sheet definitions seems like a good place to start. I understand that to get the theme .css file to work, one has to Edit the overall_header.tpl file, and un-comment the link rel="stylesheet"... tag. (Shou...

Oops. Sorry 'bout that. I was going from memory on the item names which were added by this mod.

Code: Select all

UPDATE phpbb_users SET user_showavatars=1 WHERE 1 

ALTER TABLE phpbb_users ALTER COLUMN user_showavatars SET DEFAULT 1 

It's the same column that you added at the beginning of all this.

Sorry... my SQL isn't good enough to do it off the top of my head, so I had to wait for a friend to message back. To change the field for all existing users, get into an SQL program (mysql, or using phpMyAdmin, or whatever) and... UPDATE phpbb_users SET show_avatars=1 WHERE 1 The "WHERE" clause will...

Thanks. If you look at the instructions, the second-to-last file it has you edit is the one you excerpted -- templates/ yourTemplate /viewtopic_body.tpl That has two edits to make -- replace the "{postrow.POSTER_AVATAR}" token w/ a block based on switch_showavatars, and an equivalent replacement of ...

To me, that sounds suspiciously like you're missing a close-comment HTML "tag' " --> " or missed a greater-than closure of some html tag (e.g. doing something like <br text and code that won't show up<br> ) -- note the missing closure of the initial line-break. Of course, I might be completely off b...

I've been looking for this, too (and I knew I'd seen some/a MOD for it). But, I haven't had luck finding this via the search function here. I went over to Google, and did a search there.

I believe that only works for the first post in a message-thread if no one has replied to it.

I have the forum permissions set up so AUTH_DEL is REG, and people have still had problems.

yeah i guess i am pretty dumb.... Nah... the question was potentially dumb. :) I suspect that the problem is w/ your template file(s) though. I went to your forum, and I agree that the test user's show_avatar flag is off, but he still sees the avatars. Could you post a portion of your viewtopic_bod...

Potentially dumb question -- did you change the "DustyGreen" template you use, or did only change the subSilver template? Any time you have additional or different templates, you have to make the corresponding change(s) to the "template/ yourTemplate /eachFileName.tpl" files. And depening on what yo...

[request] - always let originator of thread delete post

I'm a recent convert from UBB (yech!) One feature which we did like, though, was the ability of a thread originator to delete his post, even if others had responded. There was a warning that this would delete the entire thread, but a user could do it. I'd still like that. An alternative might be to ...

I successfully installed this, after taking into account the various issues which previous posters have mentioned. It should be noted that I installed this by hand. Looking at the unzipped MOD script: line 192 - changed $showsigatures to $showsig n atures lines 239,247,268,276 - cosmetic change. Add...
