Re: Accidently deleted a topic

That would prevent the problem. But it seems like eventually a board might get cluttered up though with soft deleted topics since they remain visible to mods and admins.

Re: Accidently deleted a topic

Next time: always delete in 2 steps: first step = soft delete - second step = after reviewing only: permadelete Thanks for that. And this is the lesson learned. I don't think I have the skills for this kind of a repair and the risk and trouble is far greater than the one thread was worth. I appreci...

Re: Accidently deleted a topic

Thank you Robert.
You are correct that by doing a full restore from the backup I would lose even more than I have already.

It was just one thread I lost but a rather good one. It was so dumb how I did it. At least I know I won't make that mistake again.

Thank you.

Accidently deleted a topic

I just really goofed and deleted a topic, and yes I checked the box to delete permanently.

Is there any way I can undo this and get the topic back?
:(

Re: Can't bump topics as full admin

Okay. Thanks.

So having that permission just means you are allowed to bump a topic if you are the original or last poster. got it.

Can't bump topics as full admin

Hello, I am pretty certain all the setting s are correct to allow me to bump any topic 5 minutes after it is posted but I seem to only be able to do so if I am the original or the last poster. here are screen shots of 2 of the settings: 2018-09-19 04.19.17 pm.png 2018-09-19 04.16.04 pm.png I tried p...

Re: A menu as a forum

Hi- sorry for the slow reply, I've been away. TBH- I never got it installed. I downloaded it and ftp'd to my server but it didn't show up in the extensions list. I am sure this is my fault. I've only used extensions available from the phpbb site, and this one was on github. I am afraid I am not tech...

Re: A menu as a forum

Thanks Robert. I'm going to try the github one. It sounds like exactly what I need.
The other probably is also but it looks a bit over my head to implement.

Re: A menu as a forum

Okay- Yes, what I would like to have as a final outcome is one group of sub-forums to appear as a list of links like in the picture I attached. I'm sorry I don't know how to explain with words better than the picture shows. here is a link to the page where I got the pic: http://www.tarotforum.net/ Y...

A menu as a forum

I would like to create something that looks like this: 2018-08-20 01.03.44 pm.png It's a list of links to places within the board that appears in the center of the homepage. I think I can do it with SiteMaker but it's not possible to make this appear in the middle, only the top, bottom or sides. Is ...

Re: Keeping forum topics in order

But users can view topics in any order they want so even if you could "fix" them individual users may not see them in that order. I'm not sure I follow what you mean. That's true if they are checking "Active Topics" or something like that, but when members go to an individual forum, don't they all ...
