Re: PM Outbox/Sent Suggestion

also consider the number of phpbb users overall. millions and millions I assume. now, consider the number of people who have come here and posted about being confused by it...maybe less than 50? over all these years. somehow I don't think this is a really big problem for most people. as mentioned ab...

Re: PayPal Donate Button on Profile Field

this is not about placing the board owner's paypal, it is about each member being able to add their payapl just like they add their location etc. to their profile.

all of those are optional to the member.

Re: Locked out of ACP

IT IS THE CORRECT WAY! If you want to bypass CloudFlare to fix something on the forum if CloudFlare is a problem you can do this temporally. This is what my host told me to do once for testing purposes. Don't assume you know everything, because you don't! :x geez, calm down. remember, the same appl...

Re: Locked out of ACP

and based on all of that, I once again suggest that unless you have some special need for all that security that you just ignore most, if not all, of cloudfare. hundreds of thousands of websites around the world are doing just fine without all of that.
just my unsolicited opinion.

Re: Easiest way to integrate phpBB in Wordpress website

install phpbb to its own directory. put a link to your support board in your wp menu. put a link back to the wp site in the phpbb menu.
if you want to bridge the users logins etc. then do a search for a wp/phpbb bridge. I think there are still a couple of them around that still work.

Thanks Robert, now I totally understand ;) But When creating the profile filed, on the Profile type specific options, set the following to YES Parse BBCode: Yes I don't have that option? that is what the extension does. it gives you that option when creating a cpf using the text area type of cpf. r...

Re: PayPal Donate Button on Profile Field

you are not really making a bbcode. bbcodes are only for posting. this is about putting a paypal button in your profile that shows up beside your posts. however, with this extension, you have to convert your paypal link from html to bbcode to put it in the text box of your custom profile field. I ga...

Re: Fast login on homepage

the login section is already at the bottom of the prosilver index page by default. if your prosilver does not have it then there is something wrong with your prosilver template file. of course, you have to be logged out to see it. ) also, that site you linked to has a problem because when I visited ...

Re: Question about backup

that is not entirely true. as with the post above. cpanel is only used by some (most) hosting companies. other hosting management software will be completely different. also, in cpanel when you do that backup, it backs up the whole server not just the board. that may or may not be what you need to d...

Re: Locked out of ACP

turn off cloudfare completely just to test. and also try to clear any and all cloudfare and/or other caches.

also, you can go into the database using phpmyadmin or whatever you have and reset the auth_method to db in the config table.

Re: Add button/link to navigation bar

keep in mind that the navbar is not a good place for something like this. the links on the left side will expand all the way across the navbar if you navigate deeper into the board. it really needs all that space. it would be much better to create a new bar like the navbar and place it under the exi...

Re: No option to enter database information on install

that page is not displaying correctly. it is not showing any of the css styling that is should. that means there is something wrong with the way you put the files on the server. first, delete all the phpbb files and then go back and copy all of the phpbb files back to the server making sure that you...

I noticed the [spoiler] tag doesn't work on phpbb. Which bbcode can i use to hide some text? Or do I need to install an extension? you have to create the spoiler bbcode. they are not universal. check the forum just below the one you posted this in. do a search for spoiler in that forum and see what...

Re: Add button/link to navigation bar

for the first, there is a extension for breadcrumb menu. search for that in the extension forums.

for the second, you need to go to the admin panel, board settings, Board index text:
remove or edit what is in that box.

luck,
robert
