The easy way I found, was to save the picture that you want to put there, as "logo_phpBB.gif", and then using ftp, upload it to: www .yourdomain .com/ your forumdirectory / templates / subSilver / images

I did it the easy way, but it costs A$30 per year. That's for the webshosting. The phpBB forum set up a was a piece of cake. A little installer that comes free with the hosting, asks for a username and password, and then sets it all up for me :D I didn't even have to download phpBB. It did it all fo...

Thanks but won't that ban my other members also? I just don't want the new members registering with free emails. It does quote: "Please note that banning an email address alone will not prevent that user from being able to log on or post to your board" Therefore I think it will only stop new valida...

Thanks!

Pete

Under "Ban Control"
select:
"Ban one or more email addresses "
To specify more than one email address, separate them with commas. To specify a wildcard username, use * like *@hotmail.com

It's not something you do from the admin panel. The easy way to do it is to name the image you want to replace it with: logo_phpBB.gif Then, use your FTP program and upload it to: templates/subSilver/images Let it replace (Over write) the current logo_phpBB.gif that is in that folder. That's the wa...

How to find a username if you only have the email address ?

In Admin, how do you find a members username if you only have the email address ?

Is it actually possible ?

I've looked at:
User Admin
- Management

But it appears that you need to know the username to edit the user.

The info from that other post was: 1) Upload the install folder to the root folder of your forum (the one with the folders 'admin', 'cache', 'db', 'includes', 'language', etc.) 2) Point to the file in your browser. (http://{your_domain}/{root_path}/install/update_to_latest.php) 3) Delete the install...
