Re: [Discuss] Preventing Spam in phpBB3

Thanks for the quick reply. I have just implemented this, and I thought that if a lot of spam registrations still got through, taking a look at what question was asked/answered would help me flush out which questions I needed to adjust.

Thanks again.

Re: [Discuss] Preventing Spam in phpBB3

Good morning. When a user answers the Q&A Captcha, does that answer get stored in his/her profile? If so, where? Thanks!

Re: Skip to content, Link Showing [v3.0.5 Bug]

I set up a test site using my current phpbb site. The production site is at www.url.com/forum and I made the copy at www.url.com/test . I also made a copy of the database and changed the config file to point to the database copy. The issue is that even with these exact copies, on the /forum site, I ...

Mod not showing up on Uninstalled Mod list

This is the first time I am installing any mod on 3.0.x and I am using AutoMod, so please forgive my ignorance. I am trying to install the AutoGroups mod . I downloaded the file from the repository, and uploaded the folder and contents to store/mod When I go to my ACP and go to the AutoMOD tab, this...

Re: Keeping bots out of custom pages

If I install the auto groups MOD and then do the upgrade for 3.0.6 (when it comes out), will this leads to conflicts? How easy would it be to uninstall the mod? Or, perhaps a better question is what is the ETA for 3.0.6?

Thank you.

Converting dates

I have backed up my database to SQL and imported (cut and paste) the user table into excel. I would like to convert the contents of the "user_regdate" to something that I can read (currently, the contents are numbers like "1120927151"). Does anyone have a formula or excel command to do this? Thanks!

Re: Keeping bots out of custom pages

Great! Thanks! One more question: is there a way to only allow users that have more than one post to view the custom page? Thank you.

Keeping bots out of custom pages

How do I prevent a bot from being able to access a custom page that I have on my site? I have set up some pages that are only accessible for registered users of my phpbb site, but now it looks like bots (google bot, msn bot, etc) can also get into those pages.

Thanks for the help!

Re: View Forum threads but not thread content

I found this mod: [BETA] Hide Topic Content From Guests (http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1185905 ) So, I take it this is not an option with the vanilla install of PHPBB?

Thanks!

View Forum threads but not thread content

How do I configure phpbb so that guests can see the Forums, and go into the forums to see the topics, but not go into a topic?

Thanks!

Different Login Page

I have created some pages that take advantage of the PHPBB session management. Users must be logged in to PHPBB to access those pages. However, at login time, because those pages are not part of the message boards per se, I would like the users to see a different login page. What do I need to modify...

Re: Variables for acp_inactive.html

Great, will do. I may be going down a rabbit hole, but it may give me a chance to go past my rudimentary knowledge of PHP. Speaking of that, any good resources you can point me to? I am in the process of taking a look at the php.net documentation ... is that a good starting place?
