Re: Annoying facebook internal browser

Assuming the app has it's own user agent it should be possible to send a page for all requests with a note your site does not support the app with instructions on how to disable the behavior. It does use its one of several identifiable user agents. They all contain the string "FB". You could use Ja...

Re: Notify Admin on Registration: Difference between phpBB’s built-in option and extension solution?

The extension sends a notification, but the account is immediately usable by the user.
The built-in sends a notification, and requires the admin to activate the account before it can be used by the user.

Re: Memory Usage Doubts

1 GB of RAM is really not much for an SQL server, especially one where the database is over 1GB. By default, MySQL will try to hold the entire database in RAM for the best performance. It will also frequently be creating join products when a query asks to join two tables, which will consume further ...

Re: PHPBB and PHP versions

According to their knowledge base, Yahoo Small Business hosting supports PHP 7.2.6, which will work with phpBB 3.2. https://help.smallbusiness.yahoo.net/s/article/SLN20660
You just have to jump through a few hoops to get there: https://help.smallbusiness.yahoo.net/s/article/SLN20661

Re: Theme not being applied across all subforums

I just loaded the viewforum page for every forum on your site and they all had the same style/theme (FTH_Tropic). Maybe you can provide more info, like a particular link that displays wrongly for you, or if you have to be logged in for this to happen.

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.
