Re: im looking for ext which can play background music

I know this isn't what you're asking for but you're making the classic mistake of adding more and more extensions for things that don't matter in the belief they will get you members. You need content. Lots of original content. At the moment your site seems to be just a copy/paste of articles from e...

Re: Add required fields or info when users posts a new Topic?

This might do what you want.
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... emplate_4/
It prefills the posting box with a BBcode template for whatever items you want people to fill in.

It's for 3.1.x but should work ok although you might want to try it on a test install first.

Re: im looking for ext which can play background music

Presumably that would then have to be on a pop up window which a lot of people block these days. You're better off letting people listen to what they want rather than what you give them. Not sure if any copyright/broadcasting laws also come in to play.

Re: Read only setting not working

When you test a users permissions you are still you and can do the things you can do. If that group has the permission of 'can post replies' and 'can start topics' set to NEVER then they will not be able to post in those forums. If you set it to NO, then the YES permission from the registered users ...

Re: Restoring old forum from Folder?

i didn't do a database backup i just saved the folder manually to my hard drive. The database has all of the posts and users in it. If you don't have the database you don't have anything. An outside chance would be if there's a copy in the /store folder (if you have one). The error message means th...

Re: Spam overkill on 3.2 board!

The current wobbly letters you're using were beaten ages ago. A Q&A needs something you can't google the answer to.

For instance you could ask what form of transport is in your forum logo.
Or even what specific form of transport i.e. a biplane

Re: Encrypted user email address fields....

The email addresses are not encrypted at all.

You can export them from the database with this query (change the prefix if yours is different)

Code: Select all

SELECT user_email FROM phpbb_users WHERE user_type <> 2

Re: Permission group for VIP group

The only way that would happen is if there is a NEVER permission to see the forum in question. That can be avoided by changing it to NO and the YES permission from the donors group will override that. The process I mentioned is no different to how people make a hidden admin forum. As long as the gro...

Re: Smilies import not working on 3.2

The number of smilies in the folder itself makes no difference. But if you were filling in the info for 20 at a time and trying to get them to install then that was probably the issue and would have been worth mentioning.

Re: Smilies import not working on 3.2

How many were you trying to do? When I asked on the previous page about putting up a screenshot before you submitted there was only the one smilie in the picture. We've been racking our brains on why one smilie won't submit.
