how do you market a free site with no money?

What are some good ideas to get the word out about a site without paying for ads? I'm talking about in the beginning. How do I let those first users know it exists without looking too spammy?

Re: what to do when your forum slows down

Big-Jim nailed it, no one wants to become a member of a dead forum and I think even more than that people who are already members would leave if they didn't see much posting because they use that as there only gauge even though members might still be visiting (PMs and viewing other content). They'll...

what to do when your forum slows down

I run a sort of social networking site that also uses a phpBB3 forum. I anticipate that there will be normal ups and downs in terms of site activity. I'm afraid that any doldrums will be magnified by the lack of forum activity during that time. What I mean is that without the forum people can't real...

Re: style tab missing from ACP

Yeah you're right. I didn't even realize that after all the aggravation just thinking about replacing so many files kind of scared me. Does anyone know of a possible reason why this might be happening to me. I've seen a few other threads where people complain about this and people keep telling me th...

Re: style tab missing from ACP

No I didn't use the one click, I installed in the regular way. I guess I'm between a rock and a hard place because I've already made too many changes to replace the files.

Re: style tab missing from ACP

Ok like before I ran the query, logged in as "admin1", gave "admin" founder status then logged out and logged back in as "admin". I deleted "admin1" and then in stk checked for all users with founder status and found one, admin.

Re: style tab missing from ACP

Ok I downloaded the stk, unzipped it ftp'd the folder and pointed my browser to the url. When I try to open the stk I get two warnings and a fatal error stk/common.php line 38 no such file.

Re: style tab missing from ACP

This just happened again. I haven't even been on my forum in a while and just now I was looking in the acp and noticed missing tabs. I looked up myself in the list and found that I no longer have founder status. This has to be some kind of bug.

Re: new user status with external integration

So could anyone tell me how I could assign both id numbers in that code? I'd really appreciate it. As of now I only know how to make them 2 or 7 but not both.

thanks

Re: new user status with external integration

Thanks guys. I just had a back and forth with the guy who wrote the cms and he insists that he does not know why this is. He did tell me what file, of his, to look in. Now I don't know php but in that file I found these lines: $where_sql = "SET group_id=2, and then a little further down $MDB->query(...

Re: new user status with external integration

No they are not in Newly Registered Users at all. I already have that group set to default. I understand changes are not retroactive. I've created new members and same thing, they get sent straight to Registered Users.

new user status with external integration

I have my forum integrated with another site that handles the registration. Members get created and can log in and everything but new members get set to registered users even though I have newly registered users set as the default group and the post limit set to 10. What can I do?

thanks

S_SHOW_TOPICS???

Can anyone tell me what S_SHOW_TOPICS means? I searched around but can't nail down anything. I made a change to something in search_results.html under IF S_SHOW_TOPICS and it worked perfectly but there is something very similar under the ELSE and I can't tell what it does.

thank you
