Re: Trying to update, moved php 5.4 > 5.6 now acp error

contact your host support and ask them to turn this on for you.
they usually will do it with no problem.

Re: require captcha at login instead of just registration?

as far as I know, there has not been a successful "hack" of phpbb3 since it came out in 2007 the only times boards have been hacked is when they got in from some other way like server software not updated, through things like wordpress etc. etc. just use a good Q&A for registration and you will not ...

Re: How many hours to build a basic phpBB forum?

kind of like the old joke about having the mechanic fix your car.
the bill was $100. $1 for turning one screw to fix it $99 for knowing which screw to turn.

Re: Like/Dislike buttons?

but the point of phpbb is to NOT have all those things that are not really needed in a bulletin board system as default. that is why the whole MODs/extensions thing has been in place since the beginning. as long as what you want is available as an extension and all you have to do is download it, upl...

Re: Restore deleted topics but only starting topic ( first )

there are at least three or four other tables that are related as well. that is why it is so hard to do this type of thing. almost all of the phpbb tables are interconnected is some way.

Re: Please help: Unable to grant permission for Admin/GM access to forum

in that page where you see all the never permissions. click on the little circle icon just before any one of those permission settins.

this will show you where the never permission is coming from.

remember a never overrides any other permissions that are set in any group etc.

Re: Finally some good news!!

I'm just a yank and don't know much about this. however, as stated above if the law specifically says that he can not sign it, why do people still wonder if he is just being petulant or whatever?'

Re: I forgot my password is not working

it says that your SSL certificate failed to verify. check with your host to see if you have a SSL certificate and if so, what is wrong with it. if not, then you need to change your settings in the admin panel to no for cookie secure and if you have force server settings to yes and have the protocol ...

Re: Why doesn't phpBB follow some trends like its competitors?

not to start up the debate again, but so called "friendly urls" do not give your site much benefit as far as SEO goes. ask google. also, if you put them in place after your board has been up for a while and is indexed well, you will lose whatever SEO you had working for you before and have to start ...

Re: header

if you are talking about having a banner image like this site has then the easiest thing is to install the header banner extension.

Re: Can phpBB be used on a mobile app?

most all of the phpbb styles are responsive by default. so, there is no need for anything special like tapatalk etc.
not sure what type of app you are working on but I would assume that if you just let it link to the board it should be fine.

Re: External Login - is it possible

yes, that extension works just fine in 3.2.8 however, it is not what the OP asked for. he wants his main site users to be able to login from the main site and be automatically logged into the board. maybe even to be registered to both when registering from the main site. OP, what usually works best ...
