Re: make the quote button use quick reply

you could just turn off quick all together and they would not have a choice. you are not likely to lose many , if any, users because they don't have a quick reply. most of the time members don't care about that kind of thing and will learn how to use the different software and never miss the other o...

Re: What to do with homepage

and if you do this, you will have to remove the redirect you have in the htaccess file in the root of the site. right now, all accesses to the domain are redirected to the board folder and its index.php file. essentially you do NOT have a home page that anyone will ever see unless you remove that re...

Re: Help needed . Blank phpbb page

wow, you really keep jumping around. ok, are both the .com and .net domains pointing at the same hosting account? if so, did you import your old database to that hosting account? are you sure the .com is the one you want to use? if so, why do you have the .net there? please answer each question comp...

Re: Help needed . Blank phpbb page

Re: New Features

I would guess that since phpbb is and has been the most popular and most used bulletin board software in the world for some time, that it probably has the features that are needed the most. yes, some other board software has different features, maybe even some that YOU think are needed, but, most of...

Re: Help needed . Blank phpbb page

first, contact support again, ask for level two support so that hopefully you will get somebody that knows what they are doing. a blank page is usually a 500 server error, it usually means there is a problem with php somewhere. 500 error is a server error, guess who is in charge of the server, that'...

Re: Did we really need phpbb_search_wordmatch and phpbb_search_wordlist when upgrading forum

if the problem is when making a backup of the database then no, you do not need to backup those tables. in the rare event that you have to use that backup you can do as said above and rebuild the search index. as far as the actual update process I agree with david, I don't think the update/upgrade t...

Re: Show attached pdf file in new browser tab

or you could explain to people to right click on the file and choose open in new window. when the box pops up that asks what to do with the file choose open with and choose the pdf viewer the user has on his machine and tell it to always do it that way.
done.

Re: 6 members online

that is only updated every five minutes.

at that particular time there could have been 6 guests at that particular time.

the two lines there; one about who is online at the time and the other about the most visitors ever have nothing to do with each other.

Re: vBulletin 4.2.5 to phpbb 3.2.5? Or using a middleman?

and yes, quite often you can find a convertor to some other software that does have a current convertor to phpbb

or, you may be able to just convert to whatever version of phpbb the current convertor works with first, then just upgrade to phpbb3.2.5

Re: Access denied for user

it is not referring to your localhost as in your computer. it is referring to the hosting company server. most all hosting companies use that. the few that don't will require you to actually input the database IP or server name in to that spot in your config.php file. everything you put in that conf...
