Re: How can phpBB be free?

W: Do you guys at least write off your time here on your taxes as "charity work" or "volunteer work"? I don't believe that is possible, as in most cases the charity organization (which phpBB is not) has to be officially registered with whatever government office is in charge of that kind of stuff. ...

Re: BBCode copyright/use

wyrmmage its perfectly fine. The sytnax isn't owned by anyone. Its just syntax, like subject-verb-object for sentences - no one really "owns" it - many types of software (not only forum software) allow user scripts to be built on the same/similar syntax. Many portals/CMS systems already do so. Its a...

Re: News about the iPhone hack

This is not something the average person is going to do. Which is exactly why third party services will crop up, just as it has with gaming consoles and mod chips. There are currently millions of modded consoles owned by 'average' people who have no clue how to do it themselves. Its inevitable for ...

Re: Ebay Noob

I take the easy way out, I only list items with a "buy it now" price, and if I see one I want, I buy it on the spot. Obviously I won't find the best deals that way, but it saves the hassle of sniping, bidding and re-bidding against 100 soccer moms. Plus ebay-uk is awesome when it comes to tech produ...

Re: Can phpBB handle an intergrated news page?

My question is about how much work would be required to make such a modification. Almost none, as portals are popular, and there are already teams developing them for you - there are quite a few phpBB2 compatible portals available, and installing them is a simple task. Many phpBB2 forums use portal...

Re: GPL v3 released, what do you think?

- GPL v3 allows DRM (depending on how you view it, not necessarily a bad thing) That's one of the main reasons Linus Torvalds has said he will not convert the Linux kernel to GPL 3. And when Linus says no, that 'no' is one hell of an influential no, with resounding effects throughout huge sections ...

Re: how does phpbb3 autorefresh on browser backstep?

With "cache-control", "no-cache" and "no-store".
You can google for tutorials on their use. Header function in PHP Manual.

These tags are used in various specific places in the phpBB software. Note that the client (the user's browser) can probably be configured to ignore those tags.

....i was having a normal site for music and wallpapers and my index page which was full of images used to open in almost 2 secs . Its got almost nothing to do with the images. Forum software will make use of PHP and a database server, things which most free hosts tend to be subpar on when it comes...

Re: phpbb3 takes a lot of loading time

phpbb3 does take longer to load even on paid hosting. This is an inaccurate generalization. There can be a server on a free host which is under less load than one which is on a paid host. What matters is the server load, most free/cheap hosts overload their servers. There is no magic solution anyon...
