Re: how do you market a free site with no money?

Like others have said, asking friends and family to check out your site is a great place to start. Its also a good idea to reach out to people on Facebook, twitter, etc. Don't spam people though. The idea is you want quality members that will participate in discussions, not someone to click a link a...

Re: [BETA] phpBB3-Knowledgebase

Any updates on the progress of this mod?
I'm curious how long it'll take to become usable on live boards.

I appreciate all the hard work you've been putting into I and would be happy to support where I can

reinstalling mods with automod

Hello, I uninstalled a mod (trash bin) using automod, and it also decided to delete automod from my forums for some reason. I reinstalled automod, however, I have several mods that show up on the list as "uninstalled" now, even though they were all successfully installed (and still are installed). I...

Styling scroll bar for signatures

Hey, I've added a scroll bar to signatures that go over 300px on my forum. It looks kind of weird with the block-scroll bar there, so I wanted to style it to something more round. The problem I'm having, is I want to just style the signature scroll bar. When I remove the .signature it works (but als...

Help limiting signatures in phpbb3

I tried searching on the site and google, but couldn't find anything for phpbb3.. Is there a mod to make it so signatures are limited to a certain size? For example, you can make a signature that is 2000px high with a bunch of line breaks. I'd like to make it so regardless of the image sizes or numb...

Search function using massive resources?

Sometimes when someone uses the search function, it hogs massive resources on my server. The CPU usage will sky rocket to 200% and the server load goes up to 6 :o This has been happening a lot to me, and its even crashed my website in the past. I want to fix it so the search doesn't try to crash my ...

Post making page get messed up?

Hey guys, I noticed that there is a page on my forum that seems to have gotten messed up from a post that someone made. The person who made the post isn't any type of hacker, and I'm sure it was completely accidental. But I have no idea why the page is messed up and how to prevent it from happening ...

Re: [BETA 2.3] phpBB wiki

I've been searching for a wiki and came across yours. I looked at the test forum, and I can't wait for the RC. Not to criticize, I'd like to support your development of the wiki as best I can, as I don't have the experience or talent to make something this awesome. But I think the layout looks kind ...
