Re: upgrading to 3.2

I like the current style I have. That is too bad that I can not use it in 3.2

upgrading to 3.2

I imagine it is not a huge jump from 3.1 to 3.2. It is not like going to a 4.x where the next leap is so different that the code is not compatible. Is it? Shouldn't I be able to make the move without ditching all of my mods and themes?

styles and extensions

Is it just my imagination or does it seem that there are less styles and extensions and themes for 3.2?

I am testing this right now. How long does it typically take to get the email to the admin email after a user registers? I have just registered a new test user.

The avatar functionality is currently disabled.

My avatar functionality is currently disabled. Why? It would be fun to have an avatar. I would even let an admin or someone else assign me one or let me pick from an approved group of avatars.

Re: Not Getting Confirmation by Email of New Users

I tried to fix the problem I have by setting up the system to allow for a gmail admin account. First of all, before testing the functionality of adding a new user, I would delete the test account from the phpbb4_users database table. According to the documentation on "[HOWTO] Gmail with phpBB3", thi...

Re: Not Getting Confirmation by Email of New Users

I have an admin@thedomain.com email address. How do I set the phpbb to recognize this email address as the one that alerts are sent to when a new user signes up?

Re: Not Getting Confirmation by Email of New Users

I will try to do both.

I have found that setting up gmail abilities in PHP has its own difficulties.

I will let this discussion thread know what happens.

Re: Not Getting Confirmation by Email of New Users

Thank you Robert for your quick reply. Yes, I am using a gmail account for the admin account. So, knowing this, I think it would be easier to find a way to make the gmail account work instead of trying a new user@mydomain.com account. If I created a new account, it would be difficult since I am usin...

I locked regions of my phpbb, but why is it they can still be seen?

I locked regions of my phpbb, but why is it they can still be seen?

I used my admin control pannel to lock regions I want hidden, but when I browse these areas, I can still see them. Perhaps I need to password protect them?

Re: "this board requires account activation" by me but I never get the email message

at this point, I want to have the people who tried to sign up try again. Which database holds email address or log in attempts where I can delete the entries allowing people to try again?

Re: "this board requires account activation" by me but I never get the email message

The activation email is not sent to the admin listed in the ACP. I made sure that I am listed in the admin group. What I am thinking of doing is just go ahead and make it so that there is no activation email sent out at all. I already have a security question set up. I think that should be good enou...
