Re: Version 3.1.8 - - do I NEED to update?

Well, here we are again! :D OK, implementing the simple Q and A at registration has been great - - no false/spam/cr4p registrations since 10th July, for such a simple measure I am amazed at the results - - I can only highly recommend it for anyone bothered with spam ;) I've now got maybe 5 or so que...

Re: Version 3.1.8 - - do I NEED to update?

OK! 'm back! ;) I've had a look at and printed off the upgrade stuff, and I wonder if someone could confirm what I've figgered out, before I give it a try - - I've already gone and downloaded the Auto-upgrade package from 3.1.8 up to 3.2. I should make a back up of my database and stuff, just in cas...

Re: Version 3.1.8 - - do I NEED to update?

I don't have anything installed that is different from the standard 3.1.8 issue - - except I added the heading as per instructions! I'm studying the upgrade intrsuctions whilst I decide what to do next. I think I would like to go up a bit on anti-spam, perhaps some kind of Captcha or Q and A thing, ...

Re: Version 3.1.8 - - do I NEED to update?

Thanks for the reply SteveM. 8-) No, it is (at the moment) a perfectly standard 3.1.8 install which more or less worked straight out of the tin to do what it says on the tin, any wee problems I have had have been due to my advanced age - - I'm 75 years of age, and all this stuff a lot of you guys ta...

Version 3.1.8 - - do I NEED to update?

I'm running a nice wee quiet board using 3.1.8, I have less than 100 users and everything swans along tickety-boo! :lol: Do I really HAVE or NEED to update to 3.2 in the foreseeable future? Since everything is so stable and usable at present, and I (seem to ) have it all under control, I would hate ...

Re: copyright of text & photos

Copyrights law is a bit of a money spinner for the legal professiun! :D Apart from anything else, different countries have differing law covering music, images, text (plagiarism) and more. About the only generality is that it is usually OK to copy anything for your own PRIVATE personal use and in so...

Re: Help with Ranks VS Groups.

Three kinds of groups: Open - Anyone can join - Can be seen Closed - Must request group leader to join - Can be seen Hidden - cannot be seen - this would be the Troublemaker group And ranks do not have to be based on post count; they can just be assigned And groups can have group ranks. Thanks, I n...

Help with Ranks VS Groups.

I've downloaded the whole MANUAL, printed it off and working away through it. ( Memo - - order more paper and ink :lol: ) Ranks - - I think I make up the Ranks names, and decide how many posts a user has to make in each level of rank before they step up another level? So - - this shows up as a featu...

An image in the board header

I've gotten my board working about 98% the way I want it, and there's one or two folk testing it out to see if they are OK with it! Before I go fully live, I'd like to make it look a bit more like the rest of my bigger site by inserting an image into the Header (where you can put in the name and tit...

Restricting access to Newbies?

I have 3.1 running well enough but I have three Forums in a Category that I would like to restrict access for new folks till - - say, they have 20 posts before they can use that particular section! I know I could maybe use a password protection, but would prefer this to be an automatic thing based o...
