Forum Permissions - Make Forum Visible but Not Posts ?

Hi!

I'm running 3.012 and am wondering.....

With respect to forum permissions, is it possible to make the forums themselves visible to everyone but limit who can actually see the contents in the forums?

Re: Removing "All Times are UTC"

That fixed it - thanks very much!!

In the future I'll be certain to post up the pertinent info - the last thing I wanted to do was waste someone's time going in the wrong direction due to 'poster error' :o

Thanks again!

Re: Removing "All Times are UTC"

Sorry about that, I should have specified that I'm using subsilver2 as the template. I did a search for S_TIMEZONE but I'm still lost :o

Removing "All Times are UTC"

Hi Folks!

I searched this on Google extensively and none of the answers I found seemed to apply (perhaps they were too old - from roughly 2011 or further back).

How does one remove the "All Times are UTC" from the site?

User Group Titles (like Rank but not) ?

Hi Folks! I have a question. I have created user groups and would like to give each group their own 'label' or rank. What I'm really after is that customers in certain groups have specific titles, something like this; People who are captains, and are members of the captains group, have a title calle...

Re: Please stop sending me spam

Good to know! I'm not using Captcha having opted, instead, for the single sentence question which works well for me :mrgreen: My concern was that, as a new phpbb user, perhaps someone was able to scrape email addresses from the forum users, let's say, if contact by email was permitted in their profi...

Re: Please stop sending me spam

Depending on the antispam option you're using, it's on the registration page. They can also register a spam account which then gets an email from you to confirm the account, thus giving them the address too. Even the regular team members can't see your email address on here. I just looked at the lo...

Re: Please stop sending me spam

What I'm interested in is HOW they got the email address to send me this phpBB-related spam. And more importantly, isn't that the real underlying issue? Here's a backgrounder. I never got that particular spam until I recently started running phpBB (within the last two months). All of a sudden, after...

MS SQL support

Hi Folks!

Don't know how hard it would be to add Microsoft SQL support but I think it would be nice to support both of the enterprise dB company's - Microsoft & Oracle.

The only reason we run MySQL is to support web apps, if we could narrow that down to just MSSQL it would be fantastic.

Email Queuing...

Hi Folks - new user here so take some of this with a grain of salt... Email Queuing I noticed the other day that users were posting while we were re-starting our mail exchanger due to updates. The forum software then logged the fact that it could not contact the mail server (nicely done, BTW). This ...

Re: [BETA] IPB 1.3 to phpBB3 Convertor

Update: Help no longer required. I manually re-created every post from my old site and brought them into phpBB by copying and pasting and then changing the usernames for each post as required. Lot's of work, but it's done. I would suggest that anyone looking to do a conversion using this mod conside...
