3.2.4 to 3.2.7 Timeout in update

The installer detected a timeout The installer has detected a timeout, you may try to refresh the page, which may lead to data corruption. We suggest tha...

Re: Restrict views of post to admin and Original Poster?

@KevC I think that my question should have been "is it possible to restrict posts from a specific 'user' so that only the 'user' and admins can see the posts. I realise this must be difficult, and the only reason is to allow a suspected "lurker" time to add enough evidence to definitively identify a...

Restrict views of post to admin and Original Poster?

I wonder if there is any way to mark a post as visible only to the Original Poster and administrators? The reason I ask is that I use the StopForumSpam extension on my phpBB forum, and I was watching a newly registered member whose IP address is Vietnam. As my board is for Anglophones in France touc...

Problem with Upgrade 3.2.4 to 3.2.5 documentation

When using the Automatic Upgrade package, once I started by selecting the FTP option there was no way back to change the selection. This was necessary because my board ISP requires Sftp, not Ftp. I got my board back by simply deleting the Install directory. Is there a way to use Sftp? Otherwise perh...

Re: I can't find meanings of "Group Type"

That was a response to a post asking for help - it is not documented anywhere to my knowledge.

Re: I can't find meanings of "Group Type"

Hello Steve I had already searched the documentation link you sent, and there is no mention of Group Types, and certainly no explanation of them. I realise the difficulty of preparing documentation and keeping it up to date; I worked in commercial software development all my working life, and it was...

Re: I can't find meanings of "Group Type"

However, when I was talking of "seeing" the groups I was really alluding to the Board Indexes! Can we just clarify what it is that you are talking about? Is it usergroups (where you add members to a particular group - usually to apply a set of permissions) or Categories/Fora/Topics (where you make ...

Re: I can't find meanings of "Group Type"

You can definitely see Closed groups and their members. Go to the UCP of this board and click on Usergroups and you will see all the groups. Yes, I did this and by this method I can see all group names and members but I can't see posts. However, when I was talking of "seeing" the groups I was reall...

Re: I can't find meanings of "Group Type"

Open - anyone can join the group Request - you have to ask to be added to the group Closed - users can only be added by the group leader/admin Hidden - only people in the group know it exists On tests I have run using a variety of log-ins, Closed groups also do not show unless you are logged in as ...

I can't find meanings of "Group Type"

In particular I have searched without success to find the difference between Closed and Hidden. I can guess what Open and Request mean, but can anyone point me to the relevant documentation? I have found out that Hidden groups cannot use Private Messaging; is this the only difference between Hidden ...

Re: Amending FAQs - what file?

Thanks for the replies!

As the extension will not work in 3.2, I repeat the question - what file(s) do I need to modify?

Thanks in advance.
