Re: How Do I Delete Any Record of IP Logging?

Your webhost would probably record more than the query string, (i.e., /forums/posting.php?mode=...) but probably also POST data (i.e., the contents of the form). Certainty, I expect Internet Service Providers routinely do this in many jurisdictions. It's not usually done, logging POST data, because...

Re: How Do I Delete Any Record of IP Logging?

I am aware someone has already scorned amateur lawyers -- but I believe that when you sign up for a residential internet connection, a contractual term stipulates that you personally take full responsibility for how it is used, including by anyone else in your household. Virgin Media's internet term...

Re: Advertising on a new forum.

My reply was perhaps too short. For Google AdSense to work, a lot of your topics will have to be about something. Google will look through your forum and try to figure out adverts that match the content. So if your forum is full of helpful advice about things, then you might get a bit of cash (you g...

Re: General Error when creating new topics / PM'ing

You did run install/update_database.php as well as upload all the new files, right? ;)

Re: 3.01 to 3.05 update

Ah, but updates may affect styles as well as core files. Hopefully, though, any updates to styles should be relatively small: and most templates are in fact nearly the same, just a few bits changed in the header and footers.

Re: Arranging announcements in a specific order

You could sort by subject, but I suppose that wouldn't help. You will probably need a mod.

Re: Almost all my work is lost... Refresh/cache issue?

Any code work you do in the ACP does not get reflected back into the Styles/ folder. I think that should be clearly spelt out, but meh.

Re: Almost all my work is lost... Refresh/cache issue?

Did you download the template cache when you backed everything up? It may be possible to extract the work from there, but it might be more work than simply recreating it.

Re: Is it possible to change filenames in PHPBB?

Some webmasters try to achieve this by rewriting their dynamic URLs to static ones; while Google is fine with this, we'd like to note that this is an advanced procedure and if done incorrectly, could cause crawling issues with your site. To learn even more about good URL structure, we recommend thi...

What if another database layer can't handle that? Not everyone uses MySQL.

Re: Dir Permissions

Typically (almost invariably, I suspect), the PHP process runs in a different user account and group to the user who owns the directory. Thus, the permission has to be xy7 (where x is the owner's permission, y is the owner's group's permission, and 7 is the "everybody else" permission). Now, of cour...

Re: MySQL and Depriciated Code

In what sense? It is unlikely that any database provider will remove this support in the future, however they label it; it's part of the SQL standard.
