Need a digest...

I decided on the phpBB board to help replace an aging listserve. The problem now appears to be, and it could be a show-stopper for the brand new phpBB board, is that there doesn't appear to be a way to automate sending digests -- daily, weekly, or any other time period. Since these users are accusto...

Re: Best way to secure a new board?

Thank you so much!

So helpful.

I am hopeful that at some point soon I'll be able to let users get emailed digests. I understand that's not currently available for version 3.

Thanks again. :)

Re: Best way to secure a new board?

Wow. Did not know this.

I currently have all the spiders/robots items at their default settings. Well, I did enable "AdsBot [Google]" just because .... :shock:

Thanks again, Mick.

Re: Best way to secure a new board?

Gotcha. Thanks for persistence.

I created a question about something local to the area for the board. It's a question that's not directly Google-able since I didn't include the state.

I always thought the captcha stuff was good, but I appreciate the heads up on that. :)

Thanks again to all.

Re: Best way to secure a new board?

My default board already has a hard-to-read captcha so I guess I'm good there.

Thanks! :)

Re: Best way to secure a new board?

No, not spam. Really worried about some bad actor creating quick account access and then posting unwanted images or other unwanted content.

Perhaps if they register by email, this situation is less likely?

I could be overthinking this...

Thanks,

Best way to secure a new board?

Getting ready to roll out my first phpBB forum. Wondering which is the best way to keep trolls and the like out of the board: 1. Moderate the account setup, but let users have full access after that. 2. Allow users to register with login, but have the "new users" permission set so they're initially ...

Re: How to modify header of a theme?

"home" is the top level in all the domains I host. (/home)

"forum" is the account name for the site (confusing in this context) (/home/forum/...)

public_html is the same as "www" (/home/forum/public_html/....)

I should have probably picked a better name than "forum" I guess... :D

Thanks

Re: Email not working

I think I might be the one who's confused. I'm not exactly sure what the 'send test email' in the email setup screen is supposed to do -- that is, whom it mails to. I was assuming the email would go to the admin user account listed there, but maybe that's incorrect. A case in point is that when I te...

Re: Cannot get themes to dsiplay

Yep, already tried that.

For me, what finally worked (hadn't yet had time to post back, sorry) was clicking to override the setting somewhere. Can't remember at the moment since I'm so busy trying to get this site ready for users.

Thanks,

Re: Email not working

Sorry, by "regular", I just meant the default settings above the SMTP area in the lower half of the screen. In the top section, I filled in the contact email address (tried a couple), the name, and even the from name. Click to send email, says it was sent successfully, but nothing. I checked my emai...

Re: How to modify header of a theme?

Thanks, that helped a lot.

For me, the logo.png file I modified was: "/home/forum/public_html/styles/basic_darkblue/theme/images"

Really appreciate your help.
