Re: [Discuss] Preventing Spam in phpBB3

What do you mean? spammers are always human Or, I missed notification of the world's conquer by machines They might use or not bots (scripts) to automatize posting.

Re: Moving the Search Bar Up

I did something similar to what you are after, it involves adjusting the CSS values. Open: styles/"your style name"/theme/common.css Find: /* Search box --------------------------------------------- */ #search-box { color: #FFFFFF; position: relative; margin-top: 30px; margin-right: 5px; display: bl...

Re: Logo / Header Width

There are various factors at play, is it a small icon or full width banner image, logo with background colour? If it is a full width image, the image could possibly distort out of shape, or repeat/multiply across the width of the screen on larger monitors. I would suggest you take a look at [How To]...

Re: [Discuss] Preventing Spam in phpBB3

Hello, BTW: Some spammers are selecting UTC+12 automatically. New Zealand and other islands and countries are using UTC+12. Do you want to disallow UTC+12, too? So what's better? Make legimate timezones bad timezones or to add two special spammer timezones only for user registration? For me it does...

Re: Bot attacks

Thanks for your reply. I'm on phpbb 3.0.9, but I can't find the 'Spambot countermeasures' tab (I'm using the Dutch version, could this make any difference?) Guest posting is already disabled. How do I make passwords have mixed case, numbers and characters? ACP -> General -> Board COnfiguration -> U...

Re: Bot attacks

Kevin's suggestion is perfect, after reading the topic he linked, select the "Q&A Captcha" from the Spambot Countermeasures in the ACP -> General tab. How to configure Q&A ACP> Spambot countermeasures> Installed plugins> click the dropdown box and select Q&A (it will be greyed out) Click the configu...

Re: [Discuss] Preventing Spam in phpBB3

correct. If I remember correctly, the 12 timezones are in the middle of the ocean. :lol: :lol: robert There are some small islands which are located in the timezones specified, but they are wildlife sanctuary's. Only certain members of specific wildlife organizations are allowed to visit there, but...

Re: [Discuss] Preventing Spam in phpBB3

With regard to the "Blocking UTC-12 Registrations" code supplied in the "Preventing Spam in phpBB3 Topic", I've noticed the code to search for, is not correct. So far, from what I can tell, the section of code below is completely missing from the default ucp_register.php file. 'confirm_code' => requ...

The blocked content (Firefox & Google Chrome auto-blocks) is from an [iframe], are you importing data from another source, ads etc?

Re: Paypal for user

Yes there is, try Paypalsite.

Edit: If you're looking to add a link for each user, you could easily adapt one of the Facebook or DeviantArt link mod's to be used for PayPal.

Re: [How To] Modify prosilver's header

http://sc2ztp.com/phpBB3/ it keeps on repeating. Also it repeats more the more i zoom out. Also the banner looks a little big Since your site is back up, it looks like you could do with a fixed width forum, if you take a look over some of the last few messages I've posted in this topic, you will fi...

Re: Modifying Forum Layout

Some Themes are easier than others to adapt. If there is no Posts tab, just move the Last post to the left of Topics. Changing DT to DL will cause it screw up. I don't know why your editing the DT though, if you were following my example code to try from my previous post, just cut the DD sections li...

Re: How do I stop unregistered guests from posting?

The "all forums" tick box you refer to, is just applying the permissions you set to all the forums & subforums within.

Have you tried to use a guest account (different browser or computer) & actually try to make a post to any of the forums?

Re: [How To] Modify prosilver's header

The only thing I can think of, the file might be corrupted, so access is disabled. Have you tried up upload a copy of the original, overwriting the previous version?

If that doesn't work, then you're probably going to have to contact your Host.
