Re: How can I tell how many emails my board sends per month?

SMTP isn't always necessary and can cause issues itself, have a look at Knowledge Base - EMAIL - Easy setup (NOT SMTP) When I do that, the board uses the php "Mail" function, correct? For some clients (like gmail for example) that goes straight to spam box, whereas SMTP works. 2 - If the emails are...

Re: How can I tell how many emails my board sends per month?

Ok I changed my SMTP settings in phpBB to send secure emails. Just ran a test and it worked. Had the board send a notification email to mail-tester and got a 10/10 as well. My hopes are up. I'm going to keep using my forum like this for a while and see if the reports that the notifications aren't la...

Re: How can I tell how many emails my board sends per month?

Thank you for your response. So there's no mail counter anywhere that can display how many emails the board has sent? In the phpBB software, in the database, or in my host's control panel? Running a test now on mail-tester, and I got 10/10 so no issues on that front. I also double checked that my do...

How can I tell how many emails my board sends per month?

I have been getting too many reports of members of my forum not receiving notification emails. Sometimes the notifications land in their spam box, sometimes they never reach them at all. I'm getting concerned that the emails are filtered out by spam filters somewhere along the path. I'm considering ...

What is the file "updatedphpBB.sql" in my root folder?

Today I'm looking in the public_html folder on my server and find a LARGE updatedphpBB.sql file (file size 767,571,653) The file is two years old. I don't remember but I suppose it's possible I updated phpBB two years ago. Any idea what that file is, what it's doing here, and if I can safely delete ...

Thank you!

probably ./styles/yourstyle/template/viewtopic_body.html
That's the one I would have thought to look at, but no. I also looked for viewtopic_body_post_after.html in /styles/yourstyle/template/event/ but couldn't find it there. :shock:

Help me find which file I've modified??

I recently modified my phpBB to be able to display Google ads in between posts. I know I used S_ROW_COUNT to test the current post number and only display ads after post #3 and post #11 on the page. Problem is, I can no longer find my modifications. I would have thought I modified viewtopic_body.htm...

Re: How to increment a variable in a template?

Thanks a lot for your help. I ended up using S_ROW_COUNT, like this:

Code: Select all

How to increment a variable in a template?

I would like to be able to add a banner ad in between posts in a thread, for example every 3 posts, or every 5 posts etc. So far the closest I've found is an extension that allows me to place a banner ad after the 1st post of a thread. The code is: <!-- IF not S_USER_LOGGED_IN and not S_IS_BOT --> <...

Displaying newest posts on home page?

I want to create a custom home page where I display for example the 6 top posts my forums (meaning the ones that got replied to most recently). Is there an extension for phpBB 3.1 or phpBB 3.2? I found an article at area 51 but don't know for which version of phpBB it was written? (https://wiki.phpb...
