I just set up a test and am wondering how the threads are listed? I thought it is based on the timestamp of the last post in a thread, in a descending order. I created a new empty forum and imported a newsgroup: http://test.openqnx.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=2 you will see the last thread in the firs...

postnuke integration

I've seen questions been asked about postnuke support.
There is a modified phpbb2 for postnuke: pnphpbb at
www.pnphpbb.com which is based on phpbb 2.0.4.
I am wondering if newssync would work with pnphpbb.
If not, how much an effort.

Re: duplicate posts

any measures to avoid duplicate posts? if the initial import from the nntp server failed in the middle and I restart it, will I get duplicates for those posts that are imported already? Since the news article has a unique message-id, is it being used to avoid dup? This should NOT happen. Is it? I h...
