Re: Looking for recomendations: should i stay with Godaaddy or is there something better?

I think you need to check with greengeeks before you sign up. it looks to me like the only thing you can run on that basic plan is a wp blog. they may not allow you to install anything else. it also seems that the basic wp site is some kind of "low power" setup. anyway, luck, robert It states it is...

Re: The hardest question of all... how do you get new users?

There have been a couple of topics/posts about artificially increasing member count. A quick search uncovered how to edit code Total members looks like more members?? :roll: See, that is just lousy. But creating a few accounts amongst yourself spread out between different proxies opened in differen...

Re: Looking for recomendations: should i stay with Godaaddy or is there something better?

I am in the process of setting up a e-commerce store, with a phpbb based forum to go along with it. I am getting my hosting from GreenGeeks, their most basic plan is ultra affordable, and offers the most “unlimited” features than any other. Only I guess “downfall” would be that you can only make one...

Re: Like and Thank Feature as Default Feature

we are still .7 versions away from 4 What does that mean? We may be 100 versions away from phpBB 4 or we may be 2 versions from phpBB 4 - unless you know something that nobody (including the developers) know Maybe .7 patches would have been a better word. We are at version 3.3, got to get through 3...

Re: Like and Thank Feature as Default Feature

Any forum that has this feature implemented it is always appreciated and revered by their entire community, regardless of what the forum is geared towards or what their targeted audience is. I beg to disagree and I do disagree. There are forums which do not want that feature as it encourages lazine...

Re: Allow Customization of Predefined Groups

I know you work here, so please correct me if I’m wrong. But I am fairly certain that you can’t change the predefined groups that they don’t appear in “The Team” listing. Admin panel> users and groups > Manage group positions At the bottom you can select any group to appear or not on the team page....

Re: The hardest question of all... how do you get new users?

Sure this has already been covered. But content is king. A great way to generate content, is by making fake users, and while under those aliases share the content amongst “them” to appear as if you have an new yet active and organic community. The more you do this among yourself, the more content yo...

Re: The-future-of-forums vs FB

I think the only thing Facebook has an advantage with is mobile accessibility. Phones are more and more like full fledged computers everyday, and that is the direction technology is going especially with the introduction of 5G. Regular computers will of course remain relevant, but more people are do...

Re: Allow Customization of Predefined Groups

As well as their permissions to be edited so if someone chooses they can place them as hidden from the forum and not appear on “The Team” listing You can already do that. For most boards I think the default names suit them just fine. The times when I've seen support requests to change it is because...

Re: Allow Customization of Predefined Groups

If the names of the default groups were changed, I would fear problems with the permission settings of newly installed extensions. These set settings for the standard groups. If the standard groups are not available, wouldn't it cause confusion in the database? I would only see something like that ...

Re: Allow Customization of Predefined Groups

Yeah I definitely agree that deleting them wouldn’t be good, and I could be mistaken I just remember being able to delete them since the default admin by default had admin permissions regardless of group and thus could access ACP regardless. I don’t see any reason as to why being able to change thei...

Re: Allow Customization of Predefined Groups

In short; I propose the Developers make it so the predefined groups can be edited entirely, other than being deleted. Further than their color and position in the staff legend. Their names should be allowed to be changed, whether or not they should appear in “The Team”, and they should be allowed t...

<t>One thing that sets phpbb apart from it’s competitor is that it is free, yet POWERFUL software. Software that in the right hands with the right mind, can match or even top communities powered by paid software such as vBulletin or Xenoform. <br/> <br/> While an official extension exists for a Than...

Allow Customization of Predefined Groups

<t>I love phpbb, and I have been familiar with the software since phpbb2. Compared to how it was then, to where it is now. phpbb has definitely become extremely user friendly, it is far more customizable than ever before. Especially with the introduction of extensions, adding features and themes hav...
