It is best if you come up with your own. I have yet to have one get thru since switching to Q&A

Re: Preventing Spam in phpBB 3.0.6 and Above [*Read First Po

I started using the q&a and the spambots stopped completely. I tried an experiment this morning where I went back to reCAPTCHA and within minutes I had three spambots register. If the q&a questions are tricky enough they will work I will go back to the q&a and change the questions when they start ge...

Re: Preventing Spam in phpBB 3.0.6 and Above [*Read First Po

Ok. I hope this is on-topic. I'm wanting to use reCAPTCHA on my 3.0.8 board. I go into the Spambot Countermeasure section. reCAPTCHA is greyed out. I select in anyways. I get the information that I need to register my site on reCAPTCHA.com. Do so. Go back. Item still greyed out. Try to select anywa...

Re: Change username in post

Go to ACP -> manage users -> enter your current admin username, then simply change it to what you want and submit. All your old posts will now show your new username. Though the old username I believe will stay when within quotes. I was hoping someone would have an idea on how to change the usernam...

Change username in post

Is it somehow possible to run a query to change a username that is referenced in posts to a new username. I would like to change my username on my board and would like to change all references to the old username in posts to the new username

Thanks

Re: Creating users for a private board

Sorry for the simplistic question - I have managed to get the board running, so I can't be completely thick! My board will be a invitation only board so I need to create new users, complete with password. Casual users should not be able to access anything. Now I log on as admin, but I can't find an...

Re: word censoring for the (at) symbol

Hello. I don't want the users of my forums to write e-mail addresses so I tried to use the "word censoring" feature to force the forum to change every @ for (at) but it did not work. I tried with *@* but it changed everything until the first dot. I.e.: me@something.com became (at).com What am I doi...

Re: ? on my site

Are you searching as an admin? I just tried on my board and I was able to search and find all posts even from the Private Forums but I am the Admin. I tested using another users permissions who did not have access and only posts from the regular forums showed up. One interesting thing I saw was that...
