Re: How to capture current time as variable from my imput submit?

Use Twig since you already are using it there. Wouldn't this approach expect to capture the current time at the moment the template was rendered to HTML (i.e. during the HTTP GET), rather than the current time "if and when" the user ever eventually submitted the form (as part of an HTTP POST)? You ...

Re: New to forums.. please help!

XAMPP and a local installation of the web server & phpBB is a great learning tool. It's also indispensable when you're trying to test out a major upgrade of your board, and want to test against a copy of your board using XAMPP on your local machine in order to work out the kinks, before attempting t...

Mark Hamill made a post about how to setup phpBB on Google Cloud recently, if you hadn't already seen that.

Re: Googlefont PHPBB Trouble

The references to {TEXT} and {TEXT2} appear to already confirm the context being discussed here. For what it's worth, the code you showed works for me. As shown in the attached screen shot, if a "font-weight:bold" span is started either before or after the font's span, the bold was shown successfull...

Re: Allow Site logo ( forum logo ) to be changed from ACP

Well, personally I see no problem with editing files or using extensions to add/changes files/codes. That's the only way to learn. Been using phpBB since 3.0.7, and learned a lot in all those years ( css, html, little PHP ... ). But yes, changing things via ACP is good for "newbies"... Well of cour...

Re: Global Email control NOT to have the address visible.

This is incorrect. The FROM address of emails sent through the board will be the FROM email address in the ACP, email settings: The sender's email is already the "reply-to" address, even though it was not the "from" address. That is why when the recipient replies to the email, the reply email goes ...

Re: Global Email control NOT to have the address visible.

You might need to clarify exactly where you're seeing or concerned that it would be "visible." With "Users send email via board:" set to "Enabled" in the ACP, General, Client Communication, Email Settings section, the receiving member's email address is never disclosed unless they choose to reply to...

Agreed. But the PHP features that were disabled earlier have been enabled on their server now, too.

So OP is working on Brf's advice, and may have fixed their problem at this point.

Re: Waiting for new account activation.

Yes I have and I have tested it several times. And when you tested it several times, what was the outcome? The answer we're trying to get at is to know whether it fails consistently even for "Send test email" just like the notifications that aren't being received; or does it work successfully for "...

Re: Unordered list's bullets not appearing

...the problem is that there is too much space inbetween the columns, as seen here: What's interesting to me is that you're seeing the opposite of the problem most people have with phpBB lists , which is how to get more white space into the default phpBB list display. 😁 But regardless, the style yo...

Re: Search function not working PHP7.2

Getting a "blank page" is many times a symptom of a PHP execution error has been reported. Check your hosting account to see whether it's been reported into the web server error log, or perhaps PHP has it's own stand-alone error log. Just depends on how your hosting account makes that information av...

Re: new php version breaks old forum

And which version of phpBB was installed prior to the PHP upgrade. Since even a "compatible" version such as PHP 7.2.x can cause the symptoms you're describing too, if you're on an older version of phpBB.

Re: Broken notification & search after user posts delete

ACP → Users and Groups → entered username → opens "User administration" → panel "Basic tools" → Delete all posts. The resulting page showed an SQL error. I believe this function executes several SQL commands in a row. First, it deletes all posts, then it does some insert/update in another table (bu...

Re: Downloading Backup not possible - thoughts

Styles aren't a concern, those can be redownloaded. Certainly a "lower category", but still an area where site-specific customization and therefore "data loss" could occur, if not externally backed up. Mind you, the download option is something I have used often (boards I worked on without FTP acce...

Have tried most suggestions in any threads I could find, but nothing appears to help.
There are no threads in phpBB btw, they are topics ;)
I missed the part where he said he was only searching on phpBB-based boards for discussion of possible solutions. 😜
