Re: Improving Pagespeed score

If you purge your cache right before you do that test, then run the test twice you'll get even better results :lol: Without doing that, i'll always get 68 for mobile and 87 for desktop. I use GTmetrix and Pingdom as well for speed testing. Mine use to be terrible but what I did is make sure my heade...

Re: AhrefsBot

Unless you subscribe to Ahrefs, you should block it. This thing will hog resources with absolutely no benefit to you. For us, Ahrefs would take 2GB bandwidth per day on our site. We stopped that right at the .htaccess level and our Pagespeed Insights improved by 11% alone.

Re: Hit with Tremendous Spam

Apparently, there are some here who are quite brainless and make idiotic conclusions. I just turned 72 years old, but I will bet that I would beat the ones here with such negative conclusions in any IQ test, so put your money where your mouths are. Apologies, there was no disrespect intended I gues...

Re: Anyone else dislike the profiles on the right?

I have only had my forum for just over 2 weeks and I have searched and installed a few themes but mostly the profiles are on the right and it really bugs me, I am actually thinking of merging from PhPBB to somewhere else as it doesn't seem a simple fix. I know that there are extensions but they don...

Re: If I delete a PM from my outbox, does that make it unavailable to the recipient?

Once you delete a PM that's still sitting in your Outbox it will not be available to the recipient and it will also tell them that it was deleted.

Re: How to understand new members over time

Hello to all, a user asked me if I could provide statistics about new users over time. I also installed google analytics on the forum, but I don't know how to extrapolate this data. Does anyone know if this is possible? Thanks You can export data in Google Analytics but why would they want your sta...

But even if they raise it I also know that it will not be long before I hit the 100,000 mark which I suspect will be another problem.
Is there a hard limit of 100,000 attachments allowed on all phpBB boards? Or is this host specific? Apologies for the hijack.

The / has no magic, it's a simple text match and the slash is a character just like E and the opening bracket is.
Understood. Thank you for clearing that up, got it now 👌

Re: Spiders & bots to add to phpBB

"AppleWebKit" is part of every agent string. The same thing would happen if you added "Mozilla" or "Gecko" or any of the other common strings. That's a bit of a worry. What exactly causes the "login" to disappear from just adding these strings? The reason I a...

Re: Spiders & bots to add to phpBB

Whatever you do, do not add AppleWebKit to your ACP as a bot on it's own. I did this before and nobody couldn't log in. It was weird because the "Login" button completely disappeared from the forum and no one could log in. Strange! 🤔
