Robert,

1. It makes me feel better knowing that spammer's aren't benefiting from their spam on my forum.
2. It could potentially harm my ratings and rankings if there are links to spam and crap sites on my site.

Re: Automatically nofollow links in posts?

Did you find a good solution or extension for this? I think this should be built into PHP as there is so much spamming these days. I run a web help forum and the spammers are tricky. They ask questions and give their website address but it is sometimes hard to tell if they are seriously asking a leg...

Re: Upgrading issues and the solution - repair your tables!

Interesting... I've been using phpBB for years so many some DB errors crept in somehow. I also did (and still do) some unusual stuff with trying to run the DB's from a RAM drive so there may have been some side-effects with that at some point(s). Oh, and awhile back I had some system stability issue...

The page here:

Does not mention the 3.1.x forums. I found that confusing... I would definitely recommend adding them there.

Upgrading issues and the solution - repair your tables!

I was able to upgrade my forums from 3.0.12 to 3.1.2 but I did run into some issues and wanted to post this to possibly help others. First, I followed these instructions: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2291441#p13916841 But I ran into this error when updating the database: Dupl...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.0.12 released

If we update we'll have to re-apply the mods, styles we used in version .11? My understanding is that the more mods and customizations you have, then the more likely it is you will run into problems. Hopefully not, but it's possible. If I were you, I would backup your forum then try the update and ...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.0.12 released

Thanks. Updated 2 forums to 3.0.12 without any problems. The forums are not heavily modified though. One of the reasons I try to avoid mods and customizations is to avoid problems with updates. I wish there was an option to login with Facebook... I guess I need to look into that. I hope it's already...

Curious, is this normal? Why would it need to patch a file twice?
It is a known bug. The teams are working on a solution.
Thanks. I'm glad it's not just me then.

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.0.11 released

I just updated 2 forums. It went "smooth" except for having to do "two rounds". I had to do this on both forums. On the first round, it gave me a bunch of files to update, which I did. Upon re-check, there was one file that still needed updating, includes/functions.php. Curious, is this normal? Why ...

Re: Removing email addresses from RSS feeds

Correct, they do not. Great, thanks. Then the best solution is to move over to the native ATOM feeds. I thought I was using the native stuff in my OP, but I had forgotten I was using an old RSS mod. For now though, I've removed the email addresses by changing the template, until I can figure out th...

Where are you seeing an rss.php file? Oops... must have been something I installed a while back (2+ years ago probably): /** * @package: phpBB 3.0.5 :: MSSTI RSS feed 2.0 -> root/rss.php * @version: $Id: rss.php, v 1.2.1 2009/06/01 09:06:01 leviatan21 Exp $ * @copyright: (c) 2008-2009 leviatan21 < ...

Re: Removing email addresses from RSS feeds

Is this a MOD you've added? Vanilla phpBB uses Atom feeds. I guess you could remove the <author> tags and see what happens, if it doesn't work you can always revert. Yes, I meant ATOM feeds. I'm pretty sure I'm using the "vanilla" stuff unless I added something a long time ago, forgot, and it's sti...

Removing email addresses from RSS feeds

One of my forum members brought this up. I had no idea email addresses were being published in the RSS feeds. Isn't having email address in RSS feeds a great way for spammers to get email addresses? What is the easiest way to remove JUST THE EMAIL ADDRESSES from the RSS feeds (what's in the "author"...

Re: Discuss: Google Summer of Code Updates

That's his point. A document can basically go non-standard any moment. Then again this just points out that in reality you program against browsers. Whether some validator thinks your document is correct or not really doesn't matter if browsers don't understand it. And the browsers are never all im...
