Re: Using developers from Fiverr...Good idea or too risky?

A lot of the graphics work is plagiarized and not even very good. I wouldnt trust any of them to code. an old work colleague got in touch with me last year after dealing with one of these guys for a simple 3 page website, nothing fancy no scripts or databases or any of that kinda magic, just your bo...

Re: No topic title in google results!

This may be a wild stab in the dark here Brf, but I think he means his forum ? Duh. But there is no information in the request to lead us to the board with the problem. I was being sarcastic too. Why show a screenshot of the phpbb.com google results if its so obvious. Your in the support team, do y...

Re: No topic title in google results!

Looks fine to me: This may be a wild stab in the dark here Brf, but I think he means his forum ? I just realized, google doesn't show the thread title in the results. Instead, it shows the name of the main forum and the name of the board! :( How can I correct this? thanks Topic title may not be inc...

Re: Camel Case

imo no, everything should be lower case. ive seen some servers unable to open a file because it has a capital and the link to it is lowercase.

Main.php

<a href src="main.php">link</a>

doesnt work

some servers do work though :|

best to be all lowercase.

Re: PM email notifications stopped working

some hosts limit how many emails you can send per day/month maybe you have hit the limit ? Also have a look in acp logs for errors.

Re: Decrease image by BBC

Images inserted with the img bbcode are automatically resized to the width of your browser anyway. Is this true of 3.1 as it wasnt with 3.0 :? I remember having to mod 3.0 to give the default bbcode for IMG a unique class to apply css to those images to scale them. curious as I havnt checked that o...

Re: Don't show usernames / force anonymous

no extension needed imo. just get creative with templates. only downside is the quote and private messages button which uses the username. Only? And in anycase.. in order to make appropriated template switches you need to do code them in PHP hence you need an extension. Modding the core code is not...

Re: Don't show usernames / force anonymous

I'd still like to be able to moderate users though so that if I got anyone who was just trolling or being abusive or constantly dragging things off topic I could still do that. Basically I want it to work like a normal board so that users post from accounts, I just don't want anyone except for admi...

Re: Don't show usernames / force anonymous

You, and the OP, may be confusing a forum with a board. phpbb.com/community is a board. 3.1.x Support Forum is a forum. Is there really much difference. ive always took the definition of a forum as a place where ideas and discussions took place, anything else is just categories :? Its like topic vs...

However, since every forum can be assigned its own style, that would work if you just used that style for that forum.
Ah, I read it as forum wide, though you covered it nicely with its own style.

Re: Don't show usernames / force anonymous

By far the easiest way to anonomise from the public would be to have only one template, disallow members to change templates, edit that template to replace the parts where usernames show up, remove the pm, profile and quote button, disallow access to memberslist and hide whos online via admin panel....
