Re: Moderation Abuse MOD

Hello, Indeed ... this would probably be more relevant for busy admins. I personally don't analyze logs very often and I want to protect myself against the possibility that a moderator deletes the account of another moderator (this happened to one of my forums in the past, fortunately the account wa...

Re: Detecting source code infections on your website

I finally put the script online (it's called PHP Security Toolbox, as I plan to have it evolve into a more robust security software over time). Here's a link to the v1.0 of the script:

Removing the Email field in Profiles

Hello, How could I remove the "email this user" field from my users' profiles, regardless of their choice (i.e even if they chose to have their email appear, it won't) ? I cannot find the viewprofile.php file in phpbb3, so I guess this is all handled differently. Help would be much appreci...

Navigation bar for phpbb3

Hello,

Is there an add-on (mod) to add a navigation bar like the one on the phpbb.com website ? (the bar with the About, Downloads, Customise, Support, etc ...)

Thanks !
