Re: Gallery Pictures

Thank you. Not sure how to do that but I know someone who does, I'll message him for assistance.

Woohoo, Figured it out without him, thanks so much for the assistance, I have Avatars in the Gallery now. :D

Re: Gallery Pictures

Not working, I try to create a new folder as shown in the attached screenshot but when I click "create folder" I don't see a new folder anywhere. I'm still learning here, sorry if the answer is obvious but I'm still missing it.

Gallery Pictures

I am trying to figure out how to get Avatars to display in the Gallery. I've uploaded several, both through the UCP and the File Manager but they don't display. It looks like I need to make a Category for them but I don't see how to do that either, and see no option for doing so in the UCP, ACP or C...

Re: reset single users post count to zero? (or any number?)

I've wondered the same thing, because in the board FAQ it states Please do not abuse the board by posting unnecessarily just to increase your rank. Most boards will not tolerate this and the moderator or administrator will simply lower your post count . If it can be done simply I want to know how, i...

Re: Having trouble getting my first forum to show up

Thanks very much. I'm working on figuring out how to create this account to send you... Easiest way is to register a second account then use your original Founder account to administrate it and check the Founders box in the Overview. Once the Forum is up keep the second account with a separate pass...

Re: I want to add pop-up ads

If I visit a site and get one popup period I will never return to that site. Annoyed does not begin to describe how I feel about them.

Re: Admin immnity

You tell them not to do it and you remove them from their Moderator positions if they don't listen to you and replace them with ones who will.

Re: Sub-forum

Add them in the same place you added the Forum you want the subforum attached to, just click that forum and add a new Forum with it as parent.

Re: Make moderators to can't deleted old topics and posts

I agree with Pit$bull, you don't assign someone the Moderator position until you know them well enough to trust them, you explain to them what you want, put it in writing and post it in your Moderator Forum if needed, and then you should never encounter that problem, if you do remove that Mod and th...

Re: Borrowing Admin Permissions

a_* permissions are not borrowed by the function. Exactly, admin permissions are not transferred when you borrow permissions, but that seems counterproductive when a Founder is testing another Admins permissions and wants to verify what they can and can't do in the ACP. I'm just wondering why, is i...

Borrowing Admin Permissions

I've added a new admin role to me board and added a new Admin in that role. I checked permissions with my test account first, then after adding him I borrowed his permissions for a double check. I was surprised that a Founder borrowing permissions from an Admin cannot access the ACP. I can understan...

Re: CAPTCHA vs skill-testing question

I tried the harder CAPTCHAS in 3.0.5 and more Spammers get in then regular users, who just get frustrated and quit so I went back to the older CAPTCHA settings and made Registered users a read only group for screening. Last night I found a great thread here on antispam and added a question box to th...

Re: Why is there a need to prune old topics?

The only Forum I prune is the Test Forum, I see no point in leaving those posts, all others are permanent.

Re: PhpBB3 ban system
