What permissions do I need to give the bots?
Honestly, I have only ever needed to do the Google submission,
I have never changed any phpBB3 settings, including BOTS.

That's for 5 reasonably successful forums - YMMV :)

Re: Can PHP BB Support LIVE CHAT?

Users aren't supposed to solicit paid help in the forums, according to the rules - so there is no official way to look for that. Correct http://www.phpbb.com/rules/#rule1j Please do check out the rules. Jim Blast! Beaten again. Jim It was your exceptionally good general answer to this question i wa...

Re: Getting my forum listed on google

This is my 2 cents: One important thing is to submit your site via Google Webmaster tools The phpBB defaults are usually fine for site indexing. All of my boards are regularly indexed - you just may need to wait a while. I have default installs with no SEO modifications. There are a couple of sitema...

Re: Can PHP BB Support LIVE CHAT?

This is a free support forum. Installing the MODS Brainy suggested you look for is pretty easy. Why not save your money ? You'll get all the help you need to install those MODS here, free... Some regular posters do offer paid or unpaid services in their signatures, if you have a look around, but you...

Re: Cannot post in own forum

I've seen that happen before here:

Usually if your host activates or alters mod_security.

Might be worth a look or at least a question to your host...

Re: Board Settings

Just passing, and read this topic. Seems like filling out the Support Request Template is a really good idea at this point so we can understand your problem - it's hard to know where to go otherwise in terms of suggestions. Give as much detail as you can, and be sure to tell us about any MODS or cus...

Re: Customizing a Custom Page

It's late here - I just saw your reply :) Your problem is likely to be that all the pages like viewtopic.php etc, depend on being called from within a forum specific environment. And they display things in a forum like manner - which seems to be what you are trying to move away from, if I understand...

Re: Custom BBCodes

Does anyone have the bbcode for...

Re: Slow Forum

I think most of us who use shared hosting (where many sites reside on a single server) find our sites slower at times than usual. It's in the nature of shared hosting to not be completely uniform in performance since the demands on the server can vary significantly and for a variety of reasons. I h...

Re: Slow Forum

Styles can be a thorny issue. Once you install a Custom Style you have altered the functionality of your forum in terms of what the user sees, and how quickly/efficiently it works. (Your data (posts, users etc) is generally safe, though - it lives in your database - and reverting to a default style ...
