Re: Images Hijacked by Photobucket?

do not assume that a 404 or incorrect MIME-type error means the images are no longer online Likewise do not assume that HTTP 200 means you get what you want: a couple of picture hosters no longer serve the original, but instead respond with a picture that has printed text on it (i.e. "removed" or "...

Re: Converting from IP.Board to phpBB problems

That one is listed under 3.1.x and also mentions 3.1.x, so you should have installed the latest 3.1.x version, which is 3.1.12.

Re: Hide my post for my foe

change it so my foe can't read my posts as I "can't" read his That's a wrong conclusion: you don't want to read his posts. Preference and penalty are two drastically different things - while penalties on both sides of the fight might be appropriate you cannot make your preferences override those of...

Re: Why get unregistered forum visitors persistent cookies?

I wonder why a persistent cookie is necessary for visitors. In fact _u and _k aren't necessary for guests, as defaults can be assumed and I have no idea why phpBB's code still acts this way. Lazyness, I guess. The _sid is for the session handling, a common internet practice . What are they used for...

Why does phpbb lack multi-quote in 2019?
It doesn't - it was available since 3.0, which is more than 10 years ago. When replying to a topic you have a topic review at the bottom - there you can quote individual posts. Have a read on Re: Is there a multi-quote feature in 3.0.7?

Re: Index List A-Z

No, not with a default installation - you'd have to request an extension for this.

And those latin letters should relate to what? Also note the memberlist also has an # to list all names not starting with a latin letter.

Re: Change poll summary

Oh, it's not about placeholders at all. There's just the request to provide more details: currently only the vote amount is displayed, and requested is to also display the amount of users having casted their votes.

He should have explained that you should contact him. This is what I consider "willful stupidity" and I would have warned the user to ban him if he repeated to not think carefully about his possibilites.

Re: Hoe to deal the a phpbb Forum who do so illegal actvity?

Apart from obviously being a typo and not a spelling mistake you don't seem to think such a thing as severity exists: to me writing "it's" instead of "its" is less severe than writing "dicktator" instead of "diktator" or "pussybilities" instead of "possibilities".
