Re: EU Cookie Directive

You could Google that for yourself but the first hit in my search found this and this and I'm sure there are many more. I'd be interested to see the cookie laws from your country. I didn't go in to any great effort to find this it was the first one I saw. The simple answer is that you're probably g...

Re: EU Cookie Directive

I think the point is that many phpBB boards are the site -- there aren't other pages to the site. So phpBB needs to facilitate users compliance with the EU cookie law. But the standard, unmodified phpBB is already compliant. A cookie notice is not needed unless the site owner has added trackers suc...

Re: EU Cookie Directive

I do not know about others, but when a customer, not to speak of a longstanding member of this community, asks what, if anything, this company's management is going to do to help its customers comply with the law that directly affects them, I think the Support Team is involved. Let's not beat around...

Re: EU Cookie Directive

I would like to introduce for consideration into this discussion a response a phpBB forum owner received from his host, SiteGround, when that forum owner asked about this matter in June of 2012. http://www.cruisingmates.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=210&t=3829 I am wondering why nobody from the Suppor...

Re: Forum Owners Association - Good or Bad Idea?

Okey-dokey, on that point about a forum is only for a specific purpose and not a GP place, meaning general purpose place, I would have to ask if you were around about ten years ago when the forum was the online place of community and where all sorts of topics would be discussed?

Re: Forum Owners Association - Good or Bad Idea?

I am not sure how a "Forum Owners Association" would Promote the increased use of forums by the Net population The first thing that pops to mind would be a similar situation with newspapers and the like.

Re: Forum Owners Association - Good or Bad Idea?

I am thinking it would run itself and the only experience I have in that field is our VFW organization. I'm thinking that our VFW "Post" would be like one forum owner and then possibly some sub-group like at the state/district level and meetings, online meetings, are held going from forum to forum w...

Re: PM System in the Database

You could check it yourself but the short answer is no. If you have a backup, you could restore that into a different database or wamp etc. and read older PM's from there. The message is stored in phpbb_privmsgs and the recipient information is stored in phpbb_privmsgs_to. Thank you for your respon...
