Re: Play audio when you hover a clickable item

There are many approaches to achieving this, however, this simple guide may be as good a starting point as any.

Re: Random Account Switching

What is weird is the fact that all these providers did it at the same time, that is weird. Sounds like ... a ....conspiracy, or a glitch in the Matrix More like the whole EIG buyout bull. Yes, it seems like 4 or 5 hosts involved in these discussions were bought out by EIG in 2010/11 - coincidence b...

I am checking your forum, what extension are those small images that are changing? I want to install that on my board....
No extension friend, that's my own photos/design/coding work (so mainly involves responsive DIVs and 3 frame animated GIFS).

All the best,
Cal :)

Re: Random Account Switching

I feel for you and hear your pain ... however, please be careful with your choice of words, as although you (like most of us) are very frustrated right now, people may read your comments as a negative "slam" towards the very people who are here to help - whether in part, your host or the phpBB envir...

Re: General Error

He confirmed they did in fact fire up Varnish on the shared servers and I asked him how they plan to fix the pro...

Of course, this is primarily a phpBB Support forum and most of us respect that. It's also a very frustrating time ...
