Re: Adding 'View your posts' and 'View new posts' in the header menu

For those of us trying to snowball audiences that aren't familiar with forums and how they operate, having these intrinsic links out in the open is vital to onboarding an active userbase. Unfortunately it's not quite as cut and dry as you might think. Back when I was using phpBB 3.0.xx ( before I u...

Re: Adding 'View your posts' and 'View new posts' in the header menu

You could download either the Board Announcements extension or the Announcement on Index extension and use that to let folks know about the Unread posts link in the Quick links list.

Re: What MODs or extensions best encourage user engagement and repeat forum visits?

Alright! Content content content! Content is king! We all get it! :lol: Me personally, when I go to a forum I go there to read what's been posted. That's about it. I go to one forum semi-regularly and they have a lot of extra stuff; banners, sidebars, some kind of forum money you get when posting t...

Re: What MODs or extensions best encourage user engagement and repeat forum visits?

I'd have to agree with the previous 3 posters, with emphasis on HiFiKabin's 2 numbered comments. On my forum I don't hide anything from guests or new members, but new members do have to have their first post approved before it shows publicly and registration is required to post. Anything else; exten...

Re: Table BBcode

put all of your bbcode on one line with no line breaks and see if that fixes it. that was what you used to have to do to eleminate the blank lines. robert I still had to do that to get it to work right in phpBB 3.1.6, as seen in this post at my test forum. Here's the code for those two tables. [tab...

Re: AutoMod issue after upgrading

I am not sure why the instructions do not tell you to remove all the old MODs before you do the upgrade. I agree. The instructions do say Upgrading to phpBB 3.1 will render previously installed MODifications and styles unusable. but they should be more specific about actually uninstalling mods, esp...

Re: My website is under multiple spam attack

My registration Q&A is "Who is the Administrator of the Forum? (one word):". In 10 years I've only received 2 emails from people asking me what the answer was. I also have a simple multiple choice question ( for whatever it's worth ): "Are you a spammer or a bot? (If not the selec...

Re: how add a favicon into a phpbb 3.1!!!!

For me the favicon shows in the browser tab but not the address bar like it used to in 3.0.x.

Re: Problems finding users in the ACP!

With a Q&A CAPTCHA and user activation, along with having Newly Registered Users first post or two needing approval goes a long way to help keep spammers out.

With that many registrations you might want to consider those options. It sure would take a load off of you. ;)

Re: Problems finding users in the ACP!

Do you have registration settings for user activated? If so, the user should get an email with an activation link in it that they have to click on to activate their registration. If they didn't get the email, it's most likely in their spam/junk folder.
