Your board's URL: http://www.taskforce20.com/forums/index.php
Version of phpBB2: phpBB 2.0.22.

Your level of expertise (be honest): Uber Green/newbie

Hello phpBB forums:

I would like to install the RAC Mod on our forums, but I do not know how to find the code for our page, save the database, or change the code to install the RAC Mod. Is there a simple step by step guide for newbies? Can someone help me install it?

It sounds like this Mod will curtail a LOT of the bots registering on our forums. We should have @ 250 registered users, but have nearly 4800 with the bots!!! I do not wish to update the forums to phpBB3 as that is way above my means and abilities; however installing the RAC Mod should help for now.

Can anyone help me please.

Thank you,

Mike

The general support pages are NOT for MOD support, so I will close this topic and direct you to please continue in the release topic for that MOD, which is at: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 6&t=552845

In short, you do not need to touch the database in any way to install that MOD, just download, edit and upload a couple of the board files.
For more general informaiton have a read of:
Knowledge Base - How to Install MODs
and
Knowledge Base - Installing MODs the Right Way

Also particularly note, all MOD install istructions tell you how to edit the default subSilver style. You are running another style called "TF20", so wherever it tells you to edit a file in the subSilver folder, you must do the same edit to the equivalent file in your TF20 folder. There is only one template file that has to be edited in the RAC MOD.
