Re: Can administrators register members if they can't register?

Long long ago I had a forum with smfnew and there was an option as the administrator to register a member myself and they could then log in later. Is it possible to do with with freeforums? There are MODs available for phpBB that add a page to the ACP where an admin can create new users ( here is o...

Hello, The community forums here at phpBB.com are not intended to provide support for general PHP programming inquiries, unless they are directly related to modifying or working with the phpBB software. Your inquiry has no relation to the phpBB software, and therefore unfortunately has no place here...

Re: problem in checking login status

I have to apologize — I seem to have been so concerned about the FORUM_PATH constant being defined that I neglected to consider the important fact that your forum and main website reside at different domains. My mistake. :) Unfortunately, you cannot check for phpBB sessions on a different domain tha...

Re: problem in checking login status

yes it is defined in main script as path of forum I'm not quite sure I know what you mean by "main script". Is the code you posted in your original post the entire contents of the file, or just a portion of the file? If it's the entire contents of the file, then I don't see where the FORUM_PATH con...

Re: problem in checking login status

You have a line that defines the phpBB root path like so: $phpbb_root_path = FORUM_PATH; Vanilla phpBB does not have a FORUM_PATH constant defined. Do you have such a constant defined on your forum? If not, then your code likely cannot find the common.php file, as the $phpbb_root_path variable is be...

Re: How to increase line height

Could you post a screenshot of an example of a section of content on your forum that is not obeying the changes you're making? I may be misunderstanding what area you're trying to modify.

Re: How to increase line height

Not quite sure that I can recognize a difference in line heights of post content between phpBB and vBulletin, but if you'd like to increase the line height of the content on your forum, open up the /styles/prosilver/theme/content.css file and find the following code: .content { min-height: 3em; over...

Perhaps you simply neglected to purge the cache or refresh the prosilver template after making your changes? If you did not notice any differences to your header immediate...

Re: variable that indicates session is on Login page

You can add such a variable yourself by editing the /includes/functions.php file. Open this file and find the following lines (within the login_box() function definition):     $template->assign_vars(array(         'LOGIN_ERROR'        => $err,         'LOGIN_EXPLAIN'        => $l_explain,         'U...

Re: Offical phpbb.com mobile app

Why do phpbb developers always need to work on stuff? If the latest forum version works fine and does everything you want, why do you need to keep improving it? Isn't that a waste of time? Why not reach a stable functional apex and leave it at that? Why keep coming out with endless stuff like Micro...

Re: First post on every page phpbb3

Why so many negative points? We only have to change ONE line to achieve this and it can be optional in ACP. So why not? That's exactly my point of view. Such a small feature, why not just throw in the extra few lines of code to make it toggleable in the ACP? It's not big enough to be "extension-wor...

Re: First post on every page phpbb3

I, personally, wouldn't have a problem with this, so long as it is implemented with an enable/disable setting on a per-forum basis with the default setting set to "disable" the feature. I can see how this could come in handy for some people, depending on how they use the forums on their board, and t...
