Re: How? First moderated post sets user to registered

After that first post, their next post will see them automatically exit the Newly registered users group and remain in the Registered users group. It won't happen till the second post is posted.

Re: get Running

I've rediscovered 10,000 steps. Wasn't aware the program was in the health app on my iPhone till this year. Did all the heavy stuff in my youth but now I love my coastal walks, so relaxing. 🚶‍♂️

But that makes the phpbb team's official Ad Extension obsolete. :lol:

Re: Forum Owner AWOL

I ended up buying a domain name very similar to the one we had, installing a new board with the same forum layout and then posting an announcement explaining the situation and asking everyone to register on the new site. It's about all you can do. If people are willing to help out copying over topi...

Re: Permissions

They are on moderation once you set that post limit as above - once they pass that limit they automatically graduate to the Registered Users Group from the Newly Registered User Group.

OK I want to LIMIT new users in the forums until sort of vetted to know they are OK to be given full rights.
Go to the ACP ---> Board Configuration ---> User Registration Setting ---> New Member Post Limit.
Set to suit.

Forum - Time Capsule submission

The Heritage Centre in the geographical area my form is about is asking for submissions for placing inside a time capsule. They say submissions can be via memory stick. I'm told the council have agreed to open the capsule in a few years and move info to whatever the modern medium is at that stage. O...

Wild guess! Are you trying to edit your posts here that are in the phpbb 3.1.X archives section?
If so see: viewtopic.php?p=15044911#p15044911

Make a group. Put him in it. Set Can post without approval to Never for all forums.
That's the way to go - more bad apples might appear, simply move them to the new group.

Lumpy's back!

So good to see Lumpy Burgertushie is back - he's helped so many of us over the years. Thought we'd lost him for a while there. Welcome back, Lumpy. :)

Re: Are Facebook, VK and other social nets killing your forums?

I take heart in this earlier post: I see Facebook and Twitter as though they are daily newspapers. What's written today is in the bin tomorrow. No-one is interested. Forums are more like libraries. You go there for information that will still be there tomorrow for you to go back to. We need daily ne...

Re: Anyone considering becoming a 3.0.x refugee?

I'm happy with 3.2.X but there is still a wee bit of nostalgia for our beginnings as a mailing list. ;)
