Re: Does phpBB offer Free Hosting?

Steve is right. You should avoid free hosting. Free hosting is always very slow. Site visitors will probably leave your site before it's even downloaded. Hosting can be had for about $1 per week, but if phpbb is completely new to you I understand your reticence at having to pay for hosting whilst yo...

Re: How do make User with limited rights?

As far as I know, you cannot have a 'registered user' who has not 'registered'. Simolar to most other people, I don't ask for addresses etc on my forum. Not sure I can be of any more help. I would suggest, if you must have an address, that you make one up! Most addresses on TV are fictional. Alterna...

Re: How do make User with limited rights?

Firstname: Special
Lastname: User

Re: How do make User with limited rights?

You simply log off! Then register in the name of your new user using the registration form.

Then log in again as your admin and administer the new user.

Re: Some images are shown as [img]<image_url>[/img] instead of displaying the image

In ACP, click on 'General', then scroll down to 'Board Configuration'. Then scroll to 'Attachment settings'. On main page, scroll down to 'Image Category settings' section and make sure 'Display images inline' is set to 'Yes'. If it is set to 'no' then only a link to the image is shown. To show the ...

Re: Some images are shown as [img]<image_url>[/img] instead of displaying the image

When you add an image you get a choice of displaying the image on the post or displaying a link to the image. It looks as though you have chosen the setting to display the link rather than display the image itself. For example, in the example page you have listed, https://testforum.rs246.com/viewtop...

(example, name of group ' Restricted Group ') Then add your user to that ' Restricted Group ' Then change group permissions for the ' Restricted Group ' to whatever you like. Then ...

Re: Adding Sidebar in 3.2

Didn't mean to offend. Ten years ago sidebars were great. Had them myself, and for many years afterwards. It's only recently that phone access has overtaken combined desktop, laptop and tablet access. Not everyone is aware that sidebars are increasingly becoming less important, or even a liability r...

Re: Adding Sidebar in 3.2

At last count well over 50% of website users now only access websites from their phones. Depending how you set it up, a left sidebar usually displays above the body text. In practice, this means when someone accesses your site on a phone all they will see is the advert. That's likely to put them off...

Re: Pre-Download Question; Interested In Using PHPBB For New Forum But...

Hi, I am interested in running phpbb because its free, clean and responsive from what I see. I was just hoping an experienced user could let me know if this stuff is possible and/or easy before I put in the effort of installing everything. Can you add text under the H2-forum title for each forum? E...
