Re: How do I edit Meta Descriptions 3.3?

You can edit overall_header.html in your style's template folder to add the tag. Beware though that if you update the style you will probably overwrite the changes.

Purge the cache after making the changes.

Re: Global annoucements

I think what you want is to define a [center] BBCode as the equivalent HTML:

Code: Select all

<div style="text-align:center;">{TEXT}</div>

Re: Post Timeout

You could check your session length to see if it is artificially low. It defaults to 1 hours (3600 seconds). ACP > General > Load settings.

Re: How do I edit Meta Descriptions 3.3?

From an SEO perspective, meta tags with keyword and description attributes generally have no effect on page ranking, so if that's your concern you may be wasting your time. The content of the page is most important. The <title> tag can matter, so topics that are named well can help, but this is prov...

Re: Dead extensions? Sitemap

Does it not work for you? It's a fairly simple extension and should work on 3.3.

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.10

Thanks for all your testing. As I don't have an active production phpBB board anymore, I depend on you to test the extension. So I need your opinion on whether you think it is ready for submission for review. Is it correctly blocking or allowing the countries you specify? Is the database being refre...

Re: All phpBB emails are detected as spam

If the message is coming from the web server attached to your hosting, you should ask your web host why it's being blocked. I have noticed with clients on GoDaddy hosting that if you leave the site name blank because you don't want it to show because you want to feature a logo, that it will flag the...

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.10

We previously determined that an IP assigned to a country could also be assigned to a VPN, i.e. the MaxMind country code database does not distinguish between those that are used by VPNs are not. MaxMind does have an anonymous IP database, but it's not free: https://www.maxmind.com/en/solutions/geoi...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.3 Proteus Feature Release Published

By popular demand, a new permission has been implemented, enabled by default. :P Can use emoji and rich text characters in topic title 2020-01-06 22_32_32-Group permissions.png And yet the team were so against it and ridiculed those who requested it... IMO it needs a forum permission as well. This ...
