Re: ACP Private Messages: Wording could be better

Could someone change the status of this topic to "Implemented", please? I see Marc is working on it: https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-16047 Thank you, Marc. Something that was likely noticed but I'll point it out anyways is that in order for Can send private messages to multiple users to func...

Firefox Extensions: Privacy and Security

I'd like to share a few extensions I use to increase the security and privacy while browsing the Internet. Without diving deep into the reasons why these extensions are used, I'll let everyone read up on these to decide if they can benefit from them as well. Here they are: Introduction Main page: ht...

Re: What are the "Must Have" extensions for a phpBB forum?

I've been using phpBB for 17 years now and have never needed or used any mods or extensions.

Everything runs just fine for me without them.

Re: Why forum over Facebook?

I'd like to add to this. phpBB is more of an exclusive party. Cookies expire when you use phpBB but they don't expire when you visit a Facebook page and continue browsing the Internet. That is how Facebook tracks everyone's browsing habits and make money. Even if you're not registered with them, you...

Re: ACP Private Messages: Wording could be better

Thru the years I modified an installation to also have more granular permission options (or adding a group type where not even members would know who else is in there). Consider it as "crossing the line" between your individual needs and what phpBB provided for years already - it won't be the last ...

Re: ACP Private Messages: Wording could be better

I think that the "Can send private messages", if set to "no", also doesn't allow sending private messages to groups or multiple users. It's a general option, if the Private Message system should be available to that user or not. So adding "to users" will be misleading then. I just tested it and you...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.6 Release

I'm happy with the change in backup functionality. Know that it was done with good intentions. Having proactive security is always better than being reactive. That's what makes phpBB stand out over other solutions. Being one step ahead is key to avoiding a potential compromised situation. The update...

Re: VPN discussion: Are they necessary?

Lots of good info here. Thanks, guys.

I may get a VPN in the future for trial and testing purposes only, because I'm totally not one of those guys that downloads anything illegal.
