Re: Best photo upload extension?

From my experience such extensions cause more work than they prevent - every once in a while the remote website layout is changed and the extension probably breaks. Valid point, but in the 5+ years of my forum, and even after changing extensions, all images still manage to work. I think we had to g...

Re: Best photo upload extension?

That's a great, long list, but do all of them have extensions for phpBB?

Imgur is the best I've seen, but would always like to find the best.

If you're interested I can post a long list of other hosters, along with their (dis)advantages, how long they exist and more.
I'm very interested in other ones you recommend.

Re: [3.2][RC] Thanks for posts (and optional Tapatalk integration)

Wow, this looks amazing!! Currently, I have a 'KARMA' extension on my forum (phpBB 3.2) and it allows for good karma and bad karma to be given to posts (and the member gets them accumulated on their profile), but the worst thing is that it's non-functional for people using TapaTalk. A few questions...

Re: Google index

Who knows, ask bing and google? Bulletin board and a site map? Does that even work? I hope I'm using the right term, lol. I said 'sitemap' but is it something else that you use to tell Google what pages to ignore? Maybe I should have said robot.txt file. Does that make more sense?? Some of you guys...

Re: Possible to add url to image attachment ?

Yeah, as long as you're using the bb codes to embed the image in your post then you can also use the url bb code to make it so that when you click on the image it takes you to whatever url you want to use. Works for gifs too, of course. Below is a gif from gify and when you click on it, it takes you...

Re: Best photo upload extension?

I strongly recommend Imgur.

We moved from postimage and have never looked back. My fear is that they will eventually ransom all of our thousands and thousands of image as ransom if we don't pay, but hey, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it, as imgur works so well for the time being.

Re: Google index

Since we are on the subject.... Google says I have about 30,000 pages indexed. Bing says I have about 200,000 pages indexed. I looked into it, and it appears that Google is using 'pagenation' indexing, meaning one topic, no matter how many pages/posts you see is ONLY indexed as ONE long page. Bing s...

Re: Load settings third party privacy issue?

When a user loads a page on your website their browser will make a request for the external resource. Whoever is hosting the external resource will know the users IP and what page on your site they are viewing. I have a question about this. I run a pretty normal forum, so would this be a real conce...

email questions

Is it now possible in the latest version of phpBB to let users activate their accounts through email verification and ALSO get an email when a new user signs up? Basically, I want to be able to send a beautiful 'WELCOME' email to all new members, and from what I understand, the default phpBB softwar...

Re: Accelerated Mobile Page for phpBB

I see AMP results a lot more these days. I don't know why anyone would say it seems to have no benefit to phpBB. AMP results load LIGHTENING fast, so hopefully there is a way to get it working on phpBB sometime.
