More or less all the plugins were then broke, so I decided to update to 3.1 I have got phpbb3.1 running somewhat stable, however I don't have the ultimate SEO plugin to ge...

Re: SQL Error Fetching as google

I uninstalled phpbb seo ultimate and removed everything from the htaccess file and I'm still getting the error. I think the error is spawning from this code. $sql = 'SELECT s.style_id, t.template_storedb, t.template_path, t.template_id, t.bbcode_bitfield, t.template_inherits_id, t.template_inherit_p...

Re: The hardest question of all... how do you get new users?

Another popular method to get your forum up and running although some people may be against this is to participate in post exchanges. Where you post X amounts of posts on someone else's forum and they do the same for you. This is an effective method to get your board up and running in very early st...

Re: Need advice on running a forum

Thanks for the reply guys :) The updated forum isn't active yet, so nobody has really stopped supporting the forum as of yet. Thanks for the criticism, I was able to brainstorm a few potential ways to make the site more unique because of it. My main concern is how to ask people to give the new chang...

Re: tranferring data from one forum to another.

You could access the phpbb_forums(sp) directory of the forum backup and delete all of rows that are not corresponding to the subtopic that you deleted. Then you can use mysql commands to re-copy that back into the live database. You would have to do this to the phpbb_forums(sp) and phpbb_topics foru...

Need advice on running a forum

I recently bought a hacking forum that I'm turning into a more "legit/legal" gaming site. (keep in mind that the old site is operating exactly as it was until I update it in the next couple days, I did post a forum update explaining the changes to come) The site specialized in allowing people to sel...

Re: Mass Password Reset and Email

Thanks for the help guys, I decided to just make the old passwords work instead of sending everyone a new one. The board has 22K members, and I didn't realize there would be a limit to 500 emails to send daily anyways. (or is this not true?) Anyways, if anyone else is experiencing a migration proble...

Re: Mass Password Reset and Email

Hello, thanks for the reply!

Will the "Force Password Change" send out an email asking to change member passwords, or will it ask people to change their password on the next login? If it does send an email, do you know where I can edit that email?

Mass Password Reset and Email - SOLVED

Hello, thanks for having me on the forum :mrgreen: I've recently migrated a board to phpBB3 from a microsoft based forum with passwords encoded with sha. So none of the old passwords are compatible with the MD5. Since the forum needs to be revived anyways, I figured I would send all the currently re...
