I can't integrate the forum into my website, so it's "freestanding" but I need to have a link or menu back to my website on top of the forum. I'm trying to edit the html templates.

Re: Preventing Spam in phpBB 3.0.6 and Above [*Read First Po

I added two custom boxes to the registration:
Are you a spammer? Yes / No
What is the name of this website (textfield)
Before this i had about 5 spammers a day registering, I've only run this for a day, but no spammers yet. Could be worth trying.

Re: Getting Custom Profile Fields to work in registration

Thanks for your reply. As far as I can tell I'm using the latest version of Xandred 2.0.2...
But I tried changing to Prosilver, and it makes no difference, the fields do not appear in the registration process still. Any more ideas?

Re: Help upgrading from v2 to v3?

I have actually - against all odds - managed to do this, after a days work...! :-) Just three questions: Do I need to change the permissions on the config.php file back? In that case, to what? And the folders i changed the permission on? Do I need to change the permission back there too? Once i've m...
