The ideas you are listing are good ones, but unfortunately won't work in my case :). To elaborate a bit further, there's a section on my site where people can discuss various versions of fansubs (for anime). There are two target audiences: regular fans, who would like to read reviews on the differen...

Ability to move *posts* around in a thread?

I did use the search, found a few threads by people asking for this sort of thing but everyone replied with the Topic Cement mod, so I'm starting this thread hoping people know of a different mod. I don't need to sticky threads in the index, I need to be able to sticky (essentially) POSTS in each th...

I really don't see why it's that much more hard work. The only difference is that you change a line of code and phpBB finds the file, as opposed to typing in the line of code yourself at the command line.

Either way it only involves typing or changing one or two lines of code.

No offense, but running a server is a really complicated matter. There is plenty of troubleshooting to have to deal with (including cleaning up the mess people make for things like these new php exploits), you have to be an expert at all sorts of things including command line know how, databases, al...

yeah... as long as you had moved the files correctly, all doing that did was the code changed the value for you (the same value i would have told you have to fix manually :)) in the future, hopefully you understand why it did that, now... the update script just goes into your database and changes it...

you are on the server, right? in case you aren't, i'll start from the beginning. open up putty, and put in the server/etc... it'll open up to a login prompt and you input your credentials, then you'll be at your root directory, then navigate to the directory where your file is. now, for unzipping, y...

ahh, I wasn't sure if that's what he/she was getting at. Indeed, just use phpmyadmin... once I'm home I'll get the exact table and field for you to change :)

Not positive on that one, but I always run it on a sql file... so you could always try it that route if the gzip doesn't work. (I am super unfamiliar with gzip to begin with :)) Based on it being 7 mb, it almost definitely is the problem I mentioned ^_^ but yeah, try unzipping it on the server, then...

If you want each person to have a custom title, then yes, you'd have to do it manually. But! If you want ALL users to have the same title (such as "minions" or anything you want), just create a rank, leave it as normal (leave "special rank" as no), and make "minimum posts" as 0. This way, ANY user w...

I can once I get home :) Unfortunately I'm at work right now, and due to the proxies and such I can't get into my phpmyadmin. I can respond back in around 4.5 hours from now, unless someone else responds first ^_^

My site is quite large (gets around 5,000 unique users a day), though not all the traffic originates in the forum (a hefty chunk, though), and I use up 60 gigs of bandwidth a month. That's REALLY high for a site, and mostly is because I have tons of images/themes (I run http://www.anime-planet.com)....

Although I'm not sure about your specific request, you can, instead, make yourself a custom title that shows up below your name. Go into the admin panel, and on the bottom left you'll see "ranks". Add a new rank and name it Sheriff or whatever you'd like. It will ask if this is a special rank or a n...
