Re: [RC] Disable links for new users & guests

30 days and 20posts ! wow, you're hard to please ;) Yes it would. If a member of your forum has been a member for 30 days, and only made 19 posts, this mod will stop them posting links or domain references. You don't have to set the bar so high in my (and I think John T.Folden's?) experience. Indee...

Re: [ABD] proSubsilver

We have not denied the style. It was still under validation. We simply ask that the style can be displayed properly with IE6, not broken, nothing more. All small display errors are tolerated of course. We do not like IE6, but many still use it, and we unfortunately have to adapt to users. If the au...

Re: [Release] Septon Fucsia (phpBB 3.0.7)

View summary of first post in topic??

I'm wondering if there might be a way, while viewing the list of topics in a forum, to also include a summary of the first post (maybe the first 150-200 characters or something)?

Popular Topics Per Day/Week/Month???

I'm wondering if there is a mod that might provide stats on busiest topics or categories, preferably on a per day/week/month basis?

Much thanks!
