Re: Your "newbies must read this" thread(s)

I agree.

It does make it hard to start posting when every forum has a "Must Read" post. Some larger forums that must enforce strict regulations can get away with having different rules for every board. However, smaller forums need to stick with a single "Must Read, Rules Post".

Re: Why did you choose phpBB?

Uhhhh....no offense taken ;) I chose phpBB after looking into all of the different forum software. Vbulletin looked good but it's rather expensive. Ultimately phpBB had what I was looking for. I had also used it in the past. So it was familiar too me, although a lot had changed sense I last used it.

Re: Swine Flu

I think i'll take me a nice trip to Mexico. I bet the prices are cheap right now... In all honesty i am not concerned about the "swine" flu. Most people should already know that the media does NOT report responsibly. I am a big believer in common-sense, it goes a long way. The media doesn't have com...

Re: How Can You Tell If Your IM Buddy Is Really a Machine?

One of the bots was able to fool 25 percent of the judges. Thats rather impressive. I think it would be entirely possible to code a bot that acted like a human on phpBB. It wouldn't be perfect and would probably get a little bit off-topic; but don't we all? If a live chat bot can fool 1 out of 4 peo...

Re: Adding the time dimension to a database

I think that this would be a great idea. However, it would be rather hard to implement.

The concept has a solid theory behind it. When it comes to phpBB, I do not think the rewards would be worth the effort.

Re: Move old database to new forum

The old forum is phpBB3 3.0 and the new forum is 3.04. I dont think i am really understanding you. Are you saying that you are unable to upgrade the OLD phpBB 3.0 to 3.04? If i were you i would: 1. Upgrade OLD forum to 3.04 2. Install phpBB 3.04 to its new location 3. Take the conf file and databas...

Re: White page instead of index page

Are you in a shared hosting environment? Or do you run your own server?

If you run your own server, i may be able to help you. I had a similar problem and the solution had to do with the way I had php configured. However, it could be many things...so ill wait for more details.

Re: Forum won't install

Have your friend create a file called index.php in the root directory were he is trying to install phpBB. In the index.php file simply include the following code: <?php echo 'hi'; ?> It will not fix phpBB but will give us an idea if the system is configured properly. Post back with what is returned ...
