Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.1.0-RC1 released

So basically you're saying that phpBB should cover for all the wrong things that people have been taught and all the poor hosting solutions with bad advice and bad practice, instead of that those people follow a simple step-by-step guide on how to copy files from location A to location B. IMO, if p...

Re: New Board. What's the First Thing To Do?

Turn off Registrations, no one can join until you are finished and turn them back on. Then read the Stickied thread at the top of the 3.0.X Support Forum "preventing SPAM in phpBB" https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2122696 and set up a good Q&A CAPTCHA. One good question will stop...

Re: Disable Moderator Approval?

Sounds like you may have Newly Registered Users on, look in User Registration settings under the General Tab, make sure you put 0 in the box for New member post limit.

Re: end of the world

Been awhile since I had ice cream. If I had the money I'd buy out the store tomorrow morning and eat it all, why does the World always end when I'm broke?

Sounds like it's moving in now, 50 MPH winds and falling temps with snow here. I predict 21 mintes after 12 tomorrow, 12:21,12/21

Re: How to stop moderators moderating in a certain subforum?

They are called "Global" Moderators because they can Moderate every Forum. Generally you only place people in that group if you want them to have Moderator access to every Forum. The rest you use the individual Forum Moderator function, and if you wish you can create a group called Moderators (or wh...

Re: Greeting on Index is it possible?

I would personally recommend the 3.0.6 Announcement Centre :D ok it shows 3.0.6 but it works superbly in 3.0.11 8-) tried and tested and will easily do your Xmas Greeting + more NOTE: Version 1.2.2 doesn't install properly with 3.0.9. Until validated, please use version 1.2.5 available on Blue Bloo...

Re: Why may normal users not edit their postings

Indeed. I allow 20 minutes to edit their own posts, after that they are free to request a staff member to edit if if they wish. Keeps people from going back and removing it later.

Re: How do i get links to open in new window.

Few things tick me off faster than a link opening in a new Window, if I want a new Window I'll right click and choose it, otherwise I open a few links and suddenly discover I have a half dozen new Windows open. I rtend to avoid those sites like the plague

Re: (newspaper article) Could CAPTCHAs get any more annoying

Is there a reason we can't use both a question and re-captcha at the same time? I like this combination since it forces a human to answer the question and if they beat Google's re-captcha Google is learning, recording, improving etc. Using both with perhaps a mod to block some countries from regist...

Re: go to Mars, but .... don't come back

While I agree with the spirit of adventure there is a big difference between going to Mars today and sailing to America back then. Columbus was seeking a new route to the Indies, he expected to find an established civilization waiting when he arrived. Those who followed were traveling to a land rich...
