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.

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.

Wild guess! Are you trying to edit your posts here that are in the phpbb 3.1.X archives section?

Make a group. Put him in it. Set Can post without approval to Never for all 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.

Had a similar occurrence in a trial site using prosilver - did a hard refresh (Ctrl +F5) and all came good.
