Re: Ubuntu

Functions great? Wow. Are you sure you are using Windows? :lol: Pretty sure. Ubuntu is very good with wireless compared to Windows. When I installed ubuntu on someone's PC with a wifi usb thing it works amazingly well. I had doubts it would work at all. I have had the opposite experience, if you co...

Re: Ubuntu

Ever set up an internet connection with Windows .....aka Helen Keller ? :shock: No, it was always set up automatically. Eye candy ? Ubuntu can run rings around even Windows Vista. After seeing the visual effects and screensavers that are available in Ubuntu, Windows Vista will look as vanilla as yo...

Re: Locked forum Status.

It's sometimes used basically as a lazy way of preventing normal users from posting instead of setting a permission mask to not allow them to post at all in the selected forum, which hides the post button completely from them.

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.0.3 released

Last night I was working on a mod that is now included in 3.0.3, the new PM permissions. Thanks for taking a huge amount of work off me Dev team. :D And your implementation is probably better than anything I could have come up with.

Re: Signature Size for Users? How Large is to LARGE?

This is a constant pain in the butt for the moderators over at another forum I go on; They are constantly replacing signatures and avatars with "Oversized signature/avatar" images because they break the limit and they weren't uploaded to their server (->No control over the size until they see the si...

Re: Will phpBB work for me?

I suggest you install it on your own computer and test the features extensively yourself. It gives you a lot more insight on how phpBB works.

Re: Hosting phpBB on your own machine - is it possible?

Sure, you could do that easily. In fact, I've done that myself. What you need: 1. A web server (Apache works great) 2. PHP 5 for that web server 3. A database program (MySQL 5 or later works great too) 4. phpBB installed 5. A static ip address, you can obtain one from your ISP 6. And probably a doma...

Re: Will phpBB work for me?

That sounds great. I am worried about administration and people having too many userids in general. Could people's email addresses be their ids? There's a setting that makes so that there can not be more than one instance of an email address. This means that if you make an account with email@exampl...

Re: Board width, space at the top, and background color!

I didn't bother to check the width of your board, but when I want to center something with a particular width this is what I do: (Let's say you wanted it to be 960px wide, a very good width as 960 is divisible by so many numbers) div { position: absolute; width: 960px; left: 50%; margin-left: -480px...

Re: Ubuntu

GIMP 2.6.1 is in Intrepid :) Good! :) I have to admit that I've switched back to Vista lately, using Ubuntu Virtual machines if I feel the urge. And I found what seems to be a good port of most of the GNU apps for windows just in case I need emacs or something. Actually I've never used emacs in my ...
