Re: Advertising on site

So I finished a book on administering phpBB and would like to advertise it here if not too expensive. I tried the advertising link on the bottom of the page and sent a query a month or so back. Should I take that as: No one's interested No one's reading the email box I need to contact X instead. Pl...

Re: [3.2][RC] Site Logo

When you use GoDaddy - They have a program which allows you to click a button to purchase cPanel and another button to press which says, "install". After that super easy part is done, they have an application section where the phpBB application can be clicked on and the entire program is installed ...

Re: [3.2][RC] Site Logo

No worries! I got it. I just need to figure out how to get my logo to display. Now that the extension is uploaded, I'm seeing a whole lot of nothing. Did you enable it in the ACP? That's step 2 of the installation instructions in the first post. Out of interest if you are uploading files one at a t...

Re: [3.2][RC] Site Logo

Fact 2 => When you look inside the sitelogo folder, you will find a second set of folders with the exact same names. Why does everyone find that so difficult to understand. When you are trying to do things quick and simple and you use the cPanel and it lets you upload files, you just start using it...

Re: [3.2][RC] Site Logo

So for anyone else reading this: - Your instructions are for people using an ftp program that will allow them to upload an entire folder at once and/or upload the zip file and open it on the server. Thus creating redundant files on the server. If the person is not using an ftp program and uploading...

Re: Lessons to be learned from XKCD forums being hacked

We've been in communication with them since the date of the incident and have offered our assistance. There is no evidence that the phpBB software was compromised. As they were running a version earlier than phpBB 3.1.11, old hashes were not updated with bcrypt for accounts where users had not logge...

Re: Problems whith installing PHP 3.2.5

Yes, exactly what I was thinking. I got a response back from the hoster, they have told me that PHPBB was outdated and that other forum software was better to use nowadays. :roll: I didn't reply to that, as this is a totally different discussion. Would you mind forwarding that to me? My username @p...

Re: GDPR Request to be forgotten

Hi, I don't believe I have an email from you regarding this. This website is run entirely out of the United States, and the GDPR is a European law. More importantly, Article 17 applies specifically to "personal data", not all content generated by you on a particular website. Having said that, we are...

Re: [Discuss] [Security] phpBB 3.2.2 Packages Compromised

Question: was the hash that is displayed for validation also altered? If not then people who download the packages and compare the hash would, or should I say know that the package was not legit. The website itself wasn't affected in any way, so the hashes were not altered. Anyone who verified the ...
