Global Email control NOT to have the address visible.

Is there a way that, when someone wants to email someone else, the email address doesn't appear, rather a window on the page that sends the email WITHOUT disclosing the address GLOBALLY? So as Admin,. I can STOP the email addresses being visible. Like a simple form window. Hopefully Ive missed somet...

Re: Is it essential that the Vendor folder & files are uploaded?

Or maybe just drive to a nearby library/McDonalds/etc where they have faster internet. Luckily phpBB is small in size. :lol: :D You laugh but... I have had to do this in the past in other areas. Berkshire for one. Mid UK. Believe it or not. So thankyou for your information. Just maybe tonight conne...

Is it essential that the Vendor folder & files are uploaded?

OK!. Im uploading forums. Updating them. Reinstalling them. But here in Scotland I am pushing it if I judge my internet connectivity by anything but half 56k dial up from the 90's. Yes. True. We have a half meg line servicing about 170 houses right out in the sticks here. Do i really need to upload ...

Re: BBCODE Beautiful Bordered post + cellpadding&cellspacing + bgcolor + outer table border only.

Strueth.... Dos=umb .... that made me laugh. ECHO and... Oh yeah.. CLS. AND tapping out all those ascii codes to make "borders" and "boxes" and "double borders". I had a 486 DX2 66Mhz with 8Megs ram (woah!) and my batch files were sometimes 3 paragraphs long all starting a STARTUP menu system so tha...

Re: BBCODE Beautiful Bordered post + cellpadding&cellspacing + bgcolor + outer table border only.

I assume anyone creating thewir own BBCodes in PHPBB will delete the explanatories. It's just that I recall when I first started out (1994 html + Pascal) I relied on a lot of the explanatories added in and I started before C became C++ and etc. People were still using Amstrad 1512's with 1/2 meg of ...

Hi again. These lil critters and all their families. I need to know where it is I edit their pixel sizes! THEN I can customize them to suit their environment.

I'd like the POST icons 50% bigger? Which file to edit?


It is going to be an easy one for the Guru's. But I would dearly appreciate this insight. The graphics and etc I can do.

Reason? For the Visually impaired. I need chunky icons. :shock:

Re: Padding out a table cell for a post pre-format.

Advanced BBcodeBox 3 has something similar (I had forgotten about that and just realised it now) but the padding isn't quite as good as yours. Have a look at it though, perhaps you could simplify yours if needed, or the AbbC3 one could be improved. I read through it but.... as the forum I'm current...

Re: Padding out a table cell for a post pre-format.

Many thanks. :)

I still do not understand why spacing and padding are illegal in BBcode OR where I would manually create their availability FOR BBcode.
I will take a look at your link right now.
I presume all this is compatible with the very latest PHPBB?
