I am including a cartoon caption contest on my message board and would like repliers to submit their proposed comments.

Next question: How do you embed general videos like ...

Re: Custom BBCodes

Thank you for the custom BBCodes. I followed your directions and was able to add the Youtube BBCode for Url onto my message board. When I preview the posting, the video appeared. However, when I submitted the post, the only thing that appears on my post is the Html code (no embedded video). What am ...

Re: Need help installing phpbb message board

Ric, Thank you again. I apologize for my inarticulate description of what I did. I did not set permissions for each individual. What I originally did was to set the Global Permissions, but in order to get the forums to show, I had to set Forum permissions for each forum (as described in the article ...

When I went to that site, there was an item for the phpbb message ...

By setting up all the correct permissions, etc., I mean that I have set up user, moderator, and administrator permissions (as well as any group permissions); and I set up all the forum titles (and permissions therein). I am using ipage's "install central" program whi...
