Instead of using "user groups", is it possible to use "user ranks" for whether to display ads or not?
People can achieve certain ranks automatically when they have X number of posts, or I can assign some special ranks for some users. For those users, they can enjoy ad-free readings.

View posts since last visit

Is there a way (hack?) that I can exclude some forums from the "View posts since last visit" search? I may not be interested in some of the forums of a high volume site and don't want them to jam my screen :)

cleanup ghost users?

My forum is setup to do "two-stage" registration. User has to check their email and come back to complete the registration. Some users never come back to complete due to various reasons (used faked email address, or the email got lost during transmit). After a few years, I have quite some such "ghos...

that's exactly what I wanted.

maybe I am not clear: if you go to my Forum Index, you see "car discussions" and "best information about cars". anybody can post to the first one and only selected people can post to the second one. Sometimes, I see a good thread in "car discussions" that I would like to copy into the "best informat...

copy/move topic(thread) ?

I have created a few forums for my phpbb install. Is it possible to move a thread from one forum to another? or "copy" over?
Thanks!

rebuild post count

For those of you who are playing with newssync, if you purge a forum, the users post count will NOT be decreased. So if you re-sync, you will see the post count is doubled. If you purge/resync for a few times, the post count for every user will be completely out of sync. Now, this hack will be in ha...

one suggestion: can we make the email anti-spam config per group rather than global? Some of my forums may link to a private server where I don't want to mangle the email address. Other of my forums may link to a public server where I do want to "hide" poster's email address.

more detail: the newssync cache is a replacement for the old .dat and .txt files -- which you can delete if they still exist. when you sync for the first time (with this newer version) it will "fill the cache up up" with this same nntp summary data [which expires as the nntp expires messages]. how ...

a question regarding the new table "newssync_cache" that was added in b3/b4: if I am upgrading from b2, this new table will be empty. Do I need to purge and re-sync all my forums to get this table populated? Will there be a problem if I don't do that? I am trying not to re-sync because this process ...
