Re: Banned IP address

People could try to add people to the list that shouldn't be. But their API keys would be revoked and the fake listing removed. Also, you can use the threshold setting to solve that issue. I've tried Q&A and it has its issues. If your forum is popular enough they'll have a human solve the Q&A once a...

Re: Banned IP address

The reCAPTCHA 2.0 works fine. It will be an official part of phpBB 3.2 whenever that releases. The Stop Forum Spam gets its data from people who get API keys to submit entries. Most of the entries are from honeypots. The rest is from manual entries by whatever gets by. https://www.stopforumspam.com/...

Re: Banned IP address

Banning IPs can work for a set amount of time. Eventually spammers and such cycle their IPs. So permanently banning IPs isn't wise. A good chunk of spamming comes from dedicated servers. And they don't cycle their IPs as often as say a spammer using their residential connection. This is due to stati...

Re: Connecting a phpBB forum to another website

You'd need to custom code some PHP files to include phpBB then use its functions to determine user state. For including phpBB from other PHP files you use this code: if (!defined('IN_PHPBB')) { define('IN_PHPBB', true); define('PHPBB_ROOT_PATH', dirname('path/to/your/phpBB/common.php') . '/'); $phpb...

Re: Playing MP3's in a post

MP3s and a lot of other audio/video are now generally supported by browsers via <audio> or <video> tag in HTML5. Some Javascript can be used to query if the browser supports a particular MIME type. See the Steamcast link in my signature for a working example. It uses Flash as a backup option for aac...

Re: phpBB's Old!

A change in the "major version" number (the first number) is suppose to represent an entire reworking of the software/hardware. I see it only fitting that with the changes they've made between 2.x to 3.x that the change in version number to 3.x is fitting. Major version . minor version . patch . bui...

I leave the "Powered by phpBB" since it is the request of the phpBB team and the fact that they spent the time to actually make the forum software. I have, in the past, made forum software. This is PowerBoards MOD and edgeBoard. Both are now shutdown but I have came across people would would remove ...

It probably was a 3rd party. phpBB has not came out with any real official portal.

How nice.... Joymax.

Some online friends have been playing a game called Silkroad. I got on their website and noticed something... Their forums looked like phpBB (altered), but they also removed the copyright, both the one that appears at the bottom of the page and the one in the HTML code thats commented. http://www.si...

Phones with the features listed for the iPhone already exist. They are called SmartPhones and PocketPCs. My brother got a phone that runs Windows Mobile.
