Re: The Team page: Warnings, notices. Bad codepage and big font

That link is pointless as you have to login to be able to see it and you have not provided ant login details.

Re: Extension wont appear to install?

If it does not have a composer.json file then it is NOT an extension. The fact that it may be compatible with 3.1 if it is installed manually does not make it an extension.

I would suggest that you take up your issues with the developer as this has nothing to do with extension writing.

Re: How to administer the portal when LDAP is down.

A better, and safer, method would be to empty the cache folder (except for .htaccess and index.htm) after running the first update query. The is_dynamic marker is used to indicate that that config variable is not cached but if it already is then just changing it to 1 may not always work.

Re: 3.1.9 to 3.2: "The installer detected a timeout" error

@Toxyy

Apart from being vague the information in your last post will not work on hosts that do not allow modification of php.ini that way - and that will be the majority of shared hosts.

Re: Disable last visited time for a certain user

Personally if it was my board I would tell that it is not possible as that is the way the software works and if he does not like it then find some other board where that does not happen.

how do I fix it so that it can link to my page?
As has been said before, there is no magic way to get to the top, or even first page, of Google listings - it takes time and constantly updated content

Re: Extension wont appear to install?

One of the common reasons as to why an extension will not show in the ACP is that the file structure is in correct. Can you post an image of your ext folder structure. I did all of the minor little changes in the files it wanted me to Did you edit composer.json? If so then another possibility that t...

Re: AUTOMATIC UPDATE PACKAGE - Keep Support

Just out of curiosity where has phpBB 4.x come from?

Having read some of the discussion on Area51 I would be very surprised if there was an auto update in phpBB 4 - whenever that may appear

Re: global settings for notification and subscriptions

What are "System Announcements"? There is no such feature in phpBB - there are Announcements and there are Global Announcements.

If you make a Global Announcement then by default it will be shown to all members when they access the board.

Re: Remove coordinates (GPS) in pictures

Surely that is the responsibility of the user to disable that feature on their phone if they do not want it to be public.
