Re: Solve this SEO Issue Once and For All

Hmm. If serving bots a different 'view' to regular users is such an issue why do phpbb offer it as a configuration option? Back when this feature was added, some 14 years ago, bots were believed to be unable to handle the SIDs. Therefore, the main feature as designed is to forcibly remove the SID p...

Re: EU Privacy Law Compliance

Strange and difficult to accept, that PHPBB handles COPPA well but ignores to handle privacy laws. A couple reasons for this: COPPA was enacted in the US in 2000, so it existed when phpBB was first created. phpBB's implementation goes back to 2002 when I first used phpBB COPPA is relatively trivial...

Re: Disable Magic URL Shortening or Edit Parameters

First, the fragment of code you're referencing is in functions_content.php. Threw me a curveball trying to find that :-) Changing the code in that location will only affect posts written after the change. I believe that you can make this change, then run the reparse posts tool that is available in p...

Re: Yes/No Radio Button to Hide NSFW Boards?

Another idea:

You can allow the Registered Users group the "Can List Forum" permission on the NSFW forum, but no other permissions, with instructions on how to join in written in the description.

If your description is accurate (I did not investigate), I would say this is a bug that should be filed to the tracker: https://tracker.phpbb.com

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.1 released

Everything went well but these is a tiny cosmetic issue. The forum_read.gif (and other icons) on the index page are enlarged and therefore blurry. I'm using Firefox 54.0.1. This is a feature to fix rendering errors/blurriness on high-DPI displays. It is because your browser is caching the older, lo...

Re: Extension db Searchs

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extensions-36/3.2 gives all 3.2 extensions :) However, keep in mind that 3.2 is just released, so there aren't many extensions validated for 3.2. This URL seems to list extensions which are not tagged with a 3.2 version number. I've highlighted one example in the ...

Re: Board3 Portal not working after upgrade to 3.2

There is a change set for board3 portal in the extension support board. It appears to have been originated by the author. I'm unsure if there is a new packaged version or not because I don't read German.

Re: search_wordmatch table - can it be emptied?

Note that there is a bug in the phpBB 3.0 to 3.1 updater that can artificially inflate the search_wordmatch table size. As far as I can tell, this bug has never been fixed.

Re: Many issues with board: broken login, 500 error, cannot register account

I was able to register an account "phpbbtest". Unfortunately, I entered random characters for the password, expecting it to fail. So I then created phpbbtest2. The password is "phpbbtest" (no quotes). I did not experience any error when logging in, and I pushed a post into your moderator queue with ...

Re: How to execute phpbb CLI

phpBB 3.2 does not support PHP 4.4.9 (~9 years old php binary), thus the syntax error.

Your host probably has multiple versions of PHP available to their customers. You will need to ask them how to access PHP 5.4 or higher on the command line.

Re: [3.2] Forum run on php 5.6, but not on php 7.0

php7 no longer includes the mysql extension, which was superseded by mysqli in 2005.

You can change your config.php file to use the mysqli driver. To make it work again, the $dbms line should read:

Code: Select all

$dbms = 'phpbb\\db\\driver\\mysqli';

Excellent. I guess OS X has a php version built in which is not configured for MySQL.
