Re: How to stop spam?

I second that sortable captcha plugin that is posted above.

Many bot software has a real hard time with JavaScript and getting them to do stuff with a mouse defeats nearly all of them.

What happened to the topic_visibility column in 3.2.4 ?

Just upgraded to the latest phpBB version.

What happened to the topic_visibility column in the phpbb3d_posts table ?

I had a script that checked this column.

Re: Are Facebook, VK and other social nets killing your forums?

You can get a lot of facebook users to join your forum too. But many are the non tech savy types that have never seen a forum before. So you can sell your forum on the basis of being more private and not needing personal data etc.

What is the default language in ACP, Board settings? And what is the Override user style setting?
Default language is British English.

The default style is Absolution & so is the Guest style.

Re: PHPbb Chinese language as guest but how to revert to English ?

Ill have a look around some more.

Im not sure you would see anything with an account as when I switch browsers everything appears OK, so it must be a cookie issue ?

Ill send you the link maybe you could register and select language as Chinese then switch back to English.

Re: PHPbb Chinese language as guest but how to revert to English ?

No its not that site (its another one).

The other site is fine if I switch browser so I think its a cookie issue.

But I cleared cookies so how can it persist and show me the board in Chinese.

Where is the moderation queue SQL table ?

Previously in 3.0.x you had the "phpbb3d_posts" table and the "post_approved" column to find if there were posts that needed to be approved in the moderation queue.

In 3.2.x its no longer there, where has it moved to ?

Re: Upgrading from phpbb 3.0.14

You could also try install XAMPP on your local PC and download phpbb 3.0.14 and install it. Import your SQL database.

Then you wont run into any timeout issues and can clean the database of MODs using STK.

I just updated my board from 3.0.14 -> 3.2.2 this way. Its easy.

Re: Problem with extensions after upgrade ACP_XXXX error

Thanks 3Di you were a little too late (but that tool looks really useful and would have been quicker). I got it working now. SOLUTION: It was due to me not having a clean database. How I fixed it was download & installed locally phpbb 3.0.14 and then I ran the STK toolkit and cleaned the database. E...
