Re: E-mail domain ban and performance hit

Thanks for the rapid reply guys

The thread in the support forum is great. I already have the RAC but there are one or 2 other things in there that look good and would compliment the RAC mod.

First step however is to upgrade from 2.0.22.

Thanks

E-mail domain ban and performance hit

Hi everyone I have been looking at ways to reduce / block spammers and have found lists of e-mail domains which could be blocked in phpBB2. These lists however seem to be getting enormous, one I have found contained 1800 domains including AOL :roll: My question is this, what sort of performance hit ...

Re: confused about user roles and user groups

Thanks for that I tried it out and its easy to set up user groups and the integration with the content management system detects the groups and relates them to its own user roles so everything looks set :D :D :D Big Thanks to all who have replied on this one. 4 months ago I had never built a web sit...

Re: confused about user roles and user groups

Thanks guys

The integration is done in subdreamer. You then relate the user roles or levels in phpbb2 to the user types in subdreamer. Registration for both is then taken care of by phpbb2.

Re: confused about user roles and user groups

On the site I want to have guest ( can view phpbb and certain parts of subdreamer), registered users (can view and post o...

Re: [2.0.19] Forum Icon with ACP Control

Hi All

Appologies if this has already been asked,but

1. Forum Icon mod is validated for 2.0.19. Does it work ok on 2.0.22?

2. Does it install with easymod and does easymod take care of the SQL?

Thanks

Re: Textual Confirmation

I have just been loking at this mod and notice that you advise disabling visual confirmation.

Re: Risks of using mods not from this site

Thanks for the heads up guys I did finally find info in the mods development forum but the download was from a link in the forum and not from the mods database. I really like the idea of users having their own blog page so think I will give it a try before I launch site just to see how it goes. The ...
