Well you could do this easily with phpbb's word replacement system in the admin e.g. get it to replace words like phpbb with the link code linking to phpbb.com hope this helped
maddude always happy to help.

You're most likely using a *Nuke port of phpBB (e.g. PHPNuke). It's probably a syndication script that provides something like RSS. in which case this is not the place to ask. Per maddude. We only support phpBB here, not 3rd Party ports. :wink: Correct MennoniteHobbit, this place is phpbbs site not...

A. im sure phpbb registered the copywright tho, cause they are now a big countrie.
B. that law that on writing the author writing a copywright notice makes it officially copywrighted, problem is without registering your copywright, you cant enforce that copywright in the UK/european/US court of law.

u could of course enforce! the fact a use has the sid in his/her url like:
http/yoursite/yourforum/index.php?sid=232546dfdgfd6435474
or whatever and if they dont have a session id in their name then dont monitor them.

well, other than allowing their session to move to any aol ip and open HUGE! security holes theres nothing left other than to tell aol users to use I.E. or firefox. msn explorer i hear can also be a problem.

ok, but webmaster@aol.com told me, that the I.P. proxy shouldnt be a problem and that it changes every sign off, but obviously he told me wrong, also phpBB could just use start_session()
