Re: Secure Login

:D That summed up most of why I made the leap last week. There are few reasons not to make this change. I almost coughed up the $150 for a 3 year SSL with GoDaddy last week just to do it before I accidentally found out that Let's Encrypt was available through Plesk. 4 to 6 hours later, everything wa...

Re: Secure Login

FYI ... a few hours back, I figured out how to get my whole domain running under https. Courtesy of Plesk Onyx, Let's Encrypt is now available as an extension. After a few modifications to Plesk, htaccess and phpBB, my domain shows as "secure" now. If you run Plesk, instructions for how to...

Re: Secure Login

FYI ... Google is going to start giving warnings for pages with secure logins. Time for me to figure out how to do this. Anyone have any instructions? Nonsecure Collection of Passwords will trigger warnings in Chrome 56 for http://www.**************.tld/ To: owner of http://www.**************.tld/ B...

Re: Forum permissions change problem

I'm experiencing this identical problem with the permissions. I haven't experienced this problem in the past until a recent upgrade in the past year. Not sure what was changed to resolve this problem.

Re: Successful login loops back to login page; SID resets

Why does your script say my user_id is 47073? The Anonymous user should be 1. That is the default setting but you can change it to be another number. Back in late 2006 or early 2007 when I upgraded from phpBB 2 to 3, I followed some instructions on phpBB.com to change the default user ID. I needed ...

Re: Successful login loops back to login page; SID resets

Another related issue that we are experiencing is the "Log me on automatically each visit" option does not work consistently. I often have to log in again after a couple of days. Many users report this problem as well. After further investigation and reading on various sites pertaining to ...

Re: [REQUEST] Auto Media Embedding MOD

How does phpBB not have this functionality built-in automatically at this point? I feel like my users are really missing out on some of the cool features that seem readily available with vBulletin yet are nowhere to be found with phpBB. It appears to me that the core phpBB staff has given up. My fru...

Re: Why do users start with an ID of 2?

For a site like mine that has tons of custom programming where our user ids are used in other custom database tables, I had to have my user id remain as 1 so that I didn't need to update it elsewhere throughout the site. The solution might not make sense to others, but on a custom site it may be a n...

Re: Why do users start with an ID of 2?

It's been a few years since I made this modification. I believe you have to manually change the IDs in the database as well? Can't remember what I did because I made the changes on an already existing phpBB, not a new install.

Re: Forgot Username

Is there a modification for a "I forgot my Username?" For years I have received emails from people asking that we help them with their accounts. I think this is the root of the problem that causes so many people to become frustrated if they have forgotten their account information. I can o...

Topic Reply Notifications stop if you don't revisit topic

Hello, I'd like to make a few modifications to the topic reply notification code. It seems that my installation of phpbb sends out a few topic reply notifications for topics you've subscribed to, but after X amount of time, the topic reply notifications stop if you haven't clicked on the link in the...
