Re: [BETA] Incognito - Post as anonymous

It's a year later now....

Are people still using this Extension on 3.1.x with success...?

Happy with the way it works?

Anonymous Posting by Registered Users

I would love this feature. Users would have the option, when posting, to check a checkbox, "Post this Anonymously". That would have the effect of hiding the username of that post from all references, counts, etc.... associated with that user. Of course, the Admin would still be able to see who poste...

I am very grateful for phpBB, the dev teams, support, and all of the teams.... from the beginning till today.

I would like to donate to the phpBB project using Bitcoin. How can I do that?

Re: When a user is a member of 2 groups...

This is what I am doing.... Please tell me if it's "smart" or "foolish".... ;) (1) Every time I create a new forum, I copy the permissions from the forum with the best known good permissions.... i.e. General Discussions ( the original "Your first forum" renamed ). (2) For a second category I've crea...

Re: Locked out of my admin account?

I use passwords like this one: X%?gWEe)o9EM@<SK .....so there is no way anyone is going to guess it, or brute force it. The only possible way they could get it is by a keylogger. And if they use a keylogger, they'll get all of my passwords anyway. The chances of me getting locked out of my own syste...

Re: When a user is a member of 2 groups...

There was a comment that... Forums do not inherit permissions from a Category if the permissions are "Standard Access", for example. But forums *do* inherit permissions from a Category if the permissions are "No Access". Then Lavigor refuted that saying that that was not true. But that categories co...

Re: Locked out of my admin account?

Ok...... Whew....... I actually was able to get back in. My Dropbox wasn't syncing my password manager's master password file... so I was looking at an old copy. Also the email address I had for "admin" wasn't the one I thought it was supposed to be. But I got it all sorted now. By the way...... if ...

Locked out of my admin account?

I was playing around with the setting to force people to change their password. I set it to 1 day, just to test it out. Then it forced me to change my password ( for admin )... so I did. I saved the new password, and it let me log in just fine. Then I set the setting to force people to change their ...

Re: Does PHPBB support forum gets spam ?

But don't ask a question like, " What is 7 - 2 ? "

Don't ask anything Google could answer.

Better to ask a question that's very unique to your website.... like,

"In the title of this website, what does the term BB stand for?"

Or,

"What language was phpBB likely developed in?"

:shock:

Re: When a user is a member of 2 groups...

Someone told me today.... that if a parent Category is set to "No Access".... then all the child Forums will also have "No Access"....

Is that true?
