Re: Adding 'related to' links at top of topic

Thanks Lumpy!

Not really sure that will work out for my needs in this case, since it requires an additional topic for each set of links I would want to post.

Re: Adding 'related to' links at top of topic

I should have looked into the extension before asking those questions, my fault... It appears that the reply with the 'links' would remain at whatever post number it was, and it just ends up getting a little quote in the OP's original post at the beginning. I was REALLY hoping this would somehow mak...

Re: Adding 'related to' links at top of topic

https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2368876 I think this will be close to what you're after, if I'm not mistaken? It allows you to check a reply as a "the correct" answer and it will be shown in the topic's first post. Now the actual links to your Shopify store will be hard to "ge...

Adding 'related to' links at top of topic

My Generac Generator Troubleshooting forum https://gentekpower.com/forums is coming along really nicely and I'm wondering if what I want to do is possible?? Basically if someone asks a question about a generator and gets an answer that they need a part or accessory, I'd like to be able to post a lin...

Re: Image orientation in plupload, using EXIF

I wanted to add some input about the same issues I was having and the fix that finally got them... Same rotation issues for me. Most were 90 deg counterclockwise. I tried the new bit of code with no success and then also the new version of plupload with what seemed no success... The trick was that I...

Re: Facebook Open Graph tag stripping parts of URL

I appreciate the help, and yes, sorry thread is a bad vBulletin habit... Haha! I wasn't sure if MOD was an old term for 'extension' which is used now. I didn't ignore your link, in fact I went through several pages of the comments and find that it does almost exactly what I have added to the overal_...

Re: Facebook Open Graph tag stripping parts of URL

You should not use a MOD if you're using phpBB 3.1.x or greater, and this forum currently only provides support for phpBB 3.2.x. As the error says, you should not use the superglobal variable $_SERVER , $request->server() should be used instead. And on a side note, I've made a extension (currently ...

Facebook Open Graph tag stripping parts of URL

I recently added some Open Graph tags to my Generac repair forum: https://gentekpower.com/forums to improve Facebook link sharing performance since I had a strange image showing for previews. When loading the index the preview performs normally, however when loading a topic, Facebook strips the URL ...

Re: .htaccess question for forum sub-directory

Your Apache always looks for the closest .htaccess file from the file it is accessing. So when someone tries to open hgentekpower.com/forums/index.php, it will first take a look at hgentekpower.com/forums/.htaccess. If it's there, it will process the request with it's parameters. Otherwise it looks...

Re: .htaccess question for forum sub-directory

I was only worried about all of the phpbb config info in the .htaccess file not being in the root domain after making the switch from the sub-domain to pointing directly at the sub-folder. I dropped using the sub-domain all together and just 301 redirected traffic to the sub-folder. That was only an...

.htaccess question for forum sub-directory

New here and also fairly new to PHPBB, but I want to make sure that my newish forum is setup correctly... I originally installed my forum into a sub-directory called /forums, however routed a sub-domain (help.gentekpower.com) to that folder. I have since changed and redirected traffic using an .htac...
