Re: Adding custom variables to header

Adding custom variables to header

Please excuse my newbie question, but in what file can I add variables so that they are parsed throughout a forum page?

Re: Full Site Integration

My website integration allows to make posts from my website to the phpBB forums. The post text itself is picked up from <textarea name="message" rows="6" cols="50" tabindex="3" class="inputbox"></textarea> I was wondering; Does anyone know if it's possible to attach a fixed piece of text to every me...

Re: hammered by newly registered members

I really don't believe that anybody is making any real money from spamming like this. how many people would actually click on a link in a board to buy viagra or whatever? I wager that not many would. It seems like a lot of effort for not much return. Their aim is not as much clicks as search engine...

Since this is very obviously a program set on cracking registration o...
