Wow this is a very cool mod ... has support for it been abandoned? Or is there another knowledge base type mod for phpbb3?

Re: How Bloated is a Bloated Database?

Thank you again for the insight, Kim.

Well, given that my forum currently hasn’t topped 700 posts, much less 700,000, I think I will let it be for now.

Re: How Bloated is a Bloated Database?

Thank you for the clarification, Kim.

Try as I might, I can’t google a simple explanation as to what full-text indexing does. What are the implications of using it? Smaller database but higher load on the server?

Re: How Bloated is a Bloated Database?

Thank you for the reply, coalman (again – you had helped me with another issue before). I’m not too sure what you mean by “switch to mysql search”? Can you elaborate? I am on a paid hosting service but it is not the most “high budget” of service packages. I limited to 1,000 mb of space and 4.88 gb /...

How Bloated is a Bloated Database?

I just launched my forum Sep 30. It’s barely got a dozen users, 500 posts, 70 topics, and 30 images ... and the database is north of 2 megs! How bloated is bloated? What are the sizes of some of the databases out there from forums that are well established? Is it worth deleting logs to save space? I...

Re: Registration Email Gets Filtered as Spam

Thank you again for the response, coalman. I have notified my host of the intoDNS results. I have already tested emails being sent from my website and, yes, they are getting caught through both my gmail and hotmail spam filters. For now, I have resorted to include a bolded, red disclaimer on the reg...

Re: Registration Email Gets Filtered as Spam

Thanks so much for the responses guys ... I suspected there was little I could do. At a minimum, I plan on incorporating a warning to new users to check their spam filter once they have completed registration. One thing I wonder is whether my automatic forwarding of the mail is triggering some filte...

Registration Email Gets Filtered as Spam

So many times now I get emails from users that just registered asking where their registration email is ... and it's in their spam box. Is there some trick to keeping the email getting filtered?

Get Rid of Padding Around Site_Logo?

How do I get rid of the padding around the site logo? Specifically, I want to have banners that change around depending on the area of the forum that the user is in – like how this phpBB site is. I recall coming across a tutorial showing how to do that with the site logo but I can’t get a full banne...

Re: [Beta] phpBB Gallery 0.4.0-RC2

the install instructions to get the random images to show in board3 portal are in the contrib/addons/boardportal directories. :) Thank you again Peter for your reply.

Re: [Beta] phpBB Gallery 0.4.0-RC2

Has there been a definitive mod to provide a portal block random image based on this mod? board3 portal Instructions to add to your portal are in this gallery mod's contrib folder. Thanks for the response. I wish I knew about this portal script before I installed mine - seems to be a more clean, re...

Re: [Beta] phpBB Gallery 0.4.0-RC2

Has there been a definitive mod to provide a portal block random image based on this mod?

Thanks in advance.

[edit] I did try this approach but it didn't work out too well. Likely because it is an older version of phpBB Gallery.
