who only keeps 3 days of backups?
Backups from a host should never be relied upon and they really need to advertise them as disaster recovery backups. I know on my old host after a failed/corrupted disk array the backup they used was three days out of date before the failure.

Re: Link shortener in PHPBB?

besides, why are you wanting to do this? nobody cares how long a link is, they just click on it. by the way, phpbb already shortens local links in a post. phpBB only shortens the displayed link text, this shortens the url itself. https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=641&t=2474926 Becomes...

Re: Link shortener in PHPBB?

Don't do that - you hand over every URI to a third party, which can easily log everything everyone links. And on top of that when the service dies you're sitting there with dead links. This is a local script and the redirection is performed locally, see the link. @OP Similar to AmigoJacks's warning...

Re: Activation Emails

They probably have the email misconfigured, check your spam box. Alternatively if you click the PayPal donate button on the bottom it will give you an email address you can use to contact them about the issue. As Mick note phpBB does not control that site. I'm closing this as it is not a phpBB.com i...

Re: Script Names

There is is usually a large array of template variables near the end of each script that will include a switch for that particular script. For example in viewonline.php on line 503: 'S_VIEWONLINE' => true, In the template you can just use: <!-- IF S_VIEWONLINE --> //HTML to parse only for viewonline...

Re: Private Messages staying in outbox

Well, yes, but it does indicate that the message has been displayed to the recipient and is in their Inbox. I think we need to define what "message" is, in this case it's just the message subject. But, the message(s) are displayed when your PM page opens, as soon as you go to it, becuase the Inbox ...

Re: [Split] mass email in HTML format

If you look in the language/your_language folder there is folder called "email" that contains templates for the different emails that are sent. You'd have to test it but I think the email templates only contain the body and also work just like the page templates.

The post is still in the 3.1 format, the error will disappear after it gets reparsed.
How I repare this?
It will eventually be done through cron.php, if you want to speed it up you can use the CLI utility.

Re: Private Messages staying in outbox

To clarify something messages in the sentbox do not indicate the message itself has been opened, that only indicates the recipient has opened their inbox. There is no way I'm aware of to know if any specific message has been read.

Re: Humane Threadbombing solutions (several).

What you are suggesting seems to be fairly complicated, especially for the user. Personally what I would like to see is "best answer" that could be voted on by other members. This would be limited to a single post and it would appear below the OP and it's original position. It could also be highligh...

You should keep a list of of core files you edited and comment where you have made edits. You can make comments in the templates like this. <!-- IF 0 -->Your comment<!-- ENDIF --> You can also use it to remove code, I use file comparison tools when upgrading so leaving the files as original as possi...

Re: Security

If your site is not over HTTPS, it's likely the browser. Firefox implemented this about a year ago where they will flag a site that accepts user inputted data as insecure if it's not over HTTPS. All the others have followed suit or will.

Re: Corrupt images after load my backup.

I mean, if i can fix this corrupted image ? For example, by renaming it or some other way. The header is corrupted during transfer so there is no easy fix. Every FTP client I've used will default to binary transfer if the filetype is unknown because it's safe for both binary and ASCII files. ASCII ...
