Re-notify Users of Unread Private Messages

Unfortunately, whilst the PM has been delivered to our users, the email notification failed due to a server error (now fixed). [Fri Mar 20 07:11:55 2015] [warn] [client xx.xx.xx.xx] mod_fcgid: ...

How-to Limit Access For New/Infrequent Users?

I'm looking for a way to disallow users with fewer than five posts being able to create new topics. Often after a race my sports related website is bombarded by new users setting up threads all over the place - I think this solution may help. Any ideas?

Re: PHPBB3 and Adsense

Actually they aren't, however placing ads in the header/footer causes them to appear on registration/error pages which is against Google's TOS. ie, it is. Putting them into those files results in them displaying on pages which is against the rules, ergo, you shouldn't put it in those files. Err, no...

Re: PHPBB3 and Adsense

You are correct that ads in the overall header and footer are against the terms of the google contract. Actually they aren't, however placing ads in the header/footer causes them to appear on registration/error pages which is against Google's TOS. What i'm currently looking for is a phpBB3 version ...

How to show Page Load Time?

Hi, I've seen in the footers of some forums a note of how quickly the page loaded in seconds, and how many sql queries were run - how can I add this to my own?

Re: Best place and file to put adsense codes on?

There was a hack to include Adsense in the Footer, on all pages except those excluded by Google's TOS on phpBB2. Does anyone know if there is something that could be done for phpBB3?

Have I been hacked?

I logged in tonight to find a username changed, their email address, and their account disabled. Can a user disable their own account, and has anyone experienced anything like this before?

Moving a forum?

Hi all, I'm trying to move my forum but without much luck. I've backed up the database, copied all the forum files to my new webspace and uploaded the database. I then changed the setting in config.php Result is message_die() was called multiple times. This isn't supposed to happen. Was message_die(...

That reminds me, I'd better add the copywright information back (I removed this when Adsense ads started to default to showing ads about phpBB!)

I think an image is the best way forward to get around this problem, with hyperlink. I will adjust mine at the weekend. :roll:

Hi mate, I had this same problem... Basically I added robots.txt and removed all allowed robots from the Search Engine Indexing Mod (the thing that allows you to manage robots in Admin). Adsense seemed to get stuck when getting past that mod?! Robots.txt - http://www.forumula1.co.uk/robots.txt F1 Fo...
