Re: PHPBB Spam ?

There is a new Akismet spam extension you can try. Akismet is not necessarily free, depending on your usage. In a similar vein, there is also the Cleantalk service and the Cleantalk extension. The service is $8/year for one website. The version of the extension here is old, so I recommend getting it...

Re: Forum phpbb3 3.2.4 Been down days restored backups same issue

This is probably a poorly written extension. However, disabling the extension doesn't necessarily solve the problem. The problem is the log_data column in the phpbb_logs table is either blank or contains a string in JSON meant to be interpreted as an array. So you will see these if you look in phpBB...

Re: Upgrade 3.0.8 to 3.2.5 without losing content

That said, my experience is that the more posts you have the more likely you will get timeouts and issues using the web interface. Keep the CLI method in your back pocket and if you have 100,000 or more posts I would use CLI first. In spite of attempts to make it bulletproof, I also often find that ...

Re: Not receiving emails and strange lines of code

I wrote a blog post about emailing problems with phpBB. Sometimes it's your host blocking outgoing email because it looks spammish and the don't want to get a reputation. I've had numerous clients using GoDaddy with this problem and it took a lot of back and forth with their support and certifying y...

Re: Submission for review when archive is too big

That certainly was the case in the past. I'd just as soon not include it if that's an option.

Advanced search, search in forums does not show all forums

This is an odd one. Logged in as myself I can see in the permissions system that I have permission to search a forum. But in the advanced search interface, the forum does not appear in the list of drop downs. Any idea why? Nothing odd about the forum: phpBB 3.2.5 recently upgraded from 3.0.0. Standa...

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

For edit subscribers, in my test I entered the partial name (no pattern matching characters) in the field and pressed enter. The matches were correct. For editing information, it does work for me.

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

The value show in Digest General settings for the day of the week should reflect value stored in the phpbb_config table. I am travelling so I can't tell you what the config_name is but it contains a value from 0 through 6 with 0 being Sunday. You can search for it with the pattern phpbbservices_dige...
