Looks like I'm not going to give away admin rights after all, it's too dangerous :) Thank you very much for your help!

100% trust is difficult, yes, but that's why I am planning to do daily cackups, just in case.

So, even by doing this (backup), you wouldn't give a person admin status?

Yes it it has to be a person I trust. But, is there anyway that the person can access the database or anything critical (beside phpBB)?

How dangerous is it to give Admin rights?

I am forced to give Admin rights to a member (looks trustable), but how dangerous is it? I know he can delete/edit forums and members.

I plan to make a cron job that takes a daily backup of the database. BTW, do you know of a good backup script?

I think it should be placed somewhere in profile.php but I am not sure. Anyone?

I think this feature would be very useful for anyone who uses AdWords for their own forum.

Where to put Google AdWords Tracking?

I use Google AdWords on my forum, and that works great. But now I would like to include the Tracking feature. This will track any genuine signups. This is the code: <!-- Google Code for Signup Conversion Page --> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"> <!-- var google_conversion_id = 0...

I was hacked, what should I look for?

I was hacked, and I know I should have upgraded to the latest version (I had 2.0.11)... Most of the forum looks normal but something has changed: my administrator name had changed from large letters (AA) to small (aa), some forum descriptions had been deleted and some members had reported strange em...

Thanks :) Looks like some bugs entered when I tried to add the new function, I didn't have time to check it.

Matt Z, Your not totally off :D 0 is equal to the user's authorization. Higher numbers is restricted. Ex 2 = Private (I think) Try this: $query = "SELECT t.topic_id, t.topic_title, t.topic_last_post_id, t.forum_id, p.post_id, p.poster_id, p.post_time, u.user_id, u.username FROM $table_topics t, $tab...

I think you should add a: WHERE auth_read = 0

This should get topics from forums where ALL can read.
I think this should work :roll: , but are not sure.
