Re: [BETA] phPKG - MOD installer with repositories & packages

intel352,

When you do start that new thread, please link to it from here, for those of us who are tracking this thread, but don't necessarily scour the mods forum for new topics.

Thanks

Re: Password for new users sent via clear text - security issue?

well, it has been this way since the beginning of phpbb and it apparently has not been a problem. "It's always been done this way" is never the best reason for doing anything . In this case, "in the beginning," it was common for people to send passwords via cleartext. Sites of all different kinds u...

Password for new users sent via clear text - security issue?

One of the users on a forum I run pointed out that when he registered for his account, his password was sent to him in an email in clear text, which he wasn't at all happy about. Given that email is an inherently insecure communication method, this seems like a security issue (low-risk, but an issue...

Re: How do I change everyone's language pack?

Please tell me where did you get it? I went to the Language pack section of phpBB.com and a note from last June says: "This package is currently under validation. Please check back later for the updated package." At the time, the package was not "currently under validation," though it was for an ol...

Re: American English Translation

Are there incompatibilities with this language pack and 3.0RC8? I installed it, and found that if I change my language to American English, the top of my main index (but, as far as I can tell, only the main index) has the following error messages: PHP Notice: in file /index.php on line 107: sprintf(...

Re: How do I change everyone's language pack?

Hmm.. That did it (I see all users are using American English in the language pack list), but now when I go to my board's index , I see the errors below at the top. I haven't seen these errors before. The query you provided seems straightforward enough, and I'm not sure how it could've caused this, ...

How do I change everyone's language pack?

I just installed the American English language pack. I'd been running a board for a little while without realizing that the American language pack was available. So for now, everyone is using the British English, as it was the only option in the initial install. Now that I've added the American Engl...

Re: [2.0.21] ExtremeDark Red

I assume that the styles demo doesn't work because phpBB.com has switched to phpBB 3.0, and the styles are all for phpBB 2 (there are no 3.0 styles in the database yet, unfortunately). I suppose it wouldn't be too difficult to run both versions on the server to be able to demo the old styles, but ap...

The "admin email" setting in the ACP is only used as a "from" address", notifications aren't sent there.
Hmm.. I'll have them check their SPAM folders or something. Thanks for the extremely fast response. :)

New user notices - admin approval - who's the admin?

A board that I host has had a rash of spammers joining, so I recently changed the new user procedure to require admin activation, instead of user activation. The board has three admins, and in the configuration page, I've defined an admin email address that I've configured to forward to myself and o...

I've got 20 mods installed, and so far, none of them appear to be affected by the update.

Original graphics

I really like this theme, too. I'd also like to second the request to source graphics for the logo. I really like the logo, but would like to customize it for my forum. A PSD of the logo would be great, but a PNG of the logo background (i.e. without the phpBB text) would do just as well. Thanks for ...
