Re: How to mass block a country from spamming my forum?

Get a program like Opentracker 2018, still not using links on the internet.

Re: phpBB2 email problem

Apologies if this is in the wrong place, I couldn't find anywhere better.

I installed my board about 11 years ago and can't for t...

Re: Web designers

Odesk is a great source. I think they changed their name to something else - but look for developers in India. They give the most bang for the buck. I would STRONGLY advice against taking this route. There are many pitfalls which I know from my web development circles, so please find a reputable se...
