Re: Go To Administration Panel

Thanks for the reply. I waited for a reply this morning and then it dawned on me that it was time to upgrade to 3.x. I had a few hours free this afternoon so we upgraded to 3.x. We no longer have a problem.

Version 3.x ACP looks complicated. I will have to poke around.

Thanks again. :lol:

Re: Someone is posting (each day) porno links on my site's forum

I believe it's being done to prevent me from promoting my site. I think my previous developer is doing it. Some one said "just ask him to stop" or "ban him". Well, he'd never dare admit it. I don't even want to contact him regarding this matter. Are there login records of "IP addresses" that visit ...

Deleting Unwanted Users

I have had some bots as well as a local troll registering on my Forum with many, many ,many bogus users. I can certainly delete the user(s) through the CPanel but I have access to the database and was wondering if the table pbpbb_users was the only record that needs to be deleted. Are there linked r...

How do you move a thread from one forum to another?
Thanks

I don't do support but this one is easy.
As moderator or administrator open the thread. Look in the lower right hand corner. look for "moderate this forum".

can someone please give me whats supposed to be in a normal config.php file?? I'm not trying to jump in the middle of the thread (but I did, didn't I?) Just thought I'd add my 2 cents worth. Using your FTP you can open your config file and see what is in it. Here is a sample: <?php // phpBB 2.x aut...

I have tried it and it works perfectly (I moderate more than one site). Maybe it is your method.... Most likely you are clicking on the shadow topic (being redirected to your moved topic) and cliking delete, saying, "Oh darn." ....Say, wow, he was right. Post back when you are done. That is exactly...

You are just deleting the link. Create a test forum/post/shadow and see for yourself. I don't mean to sound antagonistic but, have you tried it? I have. I have tried it at least a dozen times. I have created a post and rebooted, then cleared cache, then rebooted again. I have switched back and fort...

I was under the impression that the original post was moved to Forum 'B' and a link was placed in Forum A'.

When one opens the post in Forum 'A' you are actually directed to the post in Forum 'B'. If you delete it you will be deleting both.

SOLVED W/EGG ON FACE: Leave Shadow Copy - Remove Shadow Copy

Is it obvious and I am the only one that can't see it? I've looked everywhere but obviously not the right place. I moved a post from Forum 'A' to Forum 'B' and clicked "Leave Shadow Copy'. Now, I changed my mind. I want to remove the shadow copy left in Forum 'A' however, I want the original post, t...
