HI, I thought I would follow / participate.
Found this last night, and finding the same question 'of procedure'.
Though some things are obvious just moving along, trying to think ahead of the unknown isn't the best result lol...
Phpdev888, creating the GROUPS is a phpBB function, I am just getting to know myself.
We create the Group specific as intended in ACP, then it shows to be chosen.
THis basically makes viewing Group unavailable if non-member, setup correctly.
Meaning we have to learn phpBB using its docs and support forum. I'm looking to know which choice of forum 'type' is correct for this forums use. It's Private, using Closed or Request, both look ok, but only one is the ideal choice (I think).
ANd then there's the Sandbox use for Paypal
This is a new monthly membership forum, not live yet, and this BETA is now installed to test/sertup/use.
My Skill level may be considered above novice, maybe lol. I do seem to be able to eventually understand and proceed without help (so far, lol).
Looking into Paypal procedure and how to setup everything, as well as sandbox testing, integrate phpbb (still learning), along with a wordpress site (still learning), keep the forum Group private, quite involved.
Sites been live, and now forum up, creating...
- phpBB3 3.2.7
- other Ext are installed, working good so far, but not up to date with phpbb3- 3.2.7, (I can list active if needed)
Looks as though this Ext may jump out of beta real soon. Hoping we can go live with this working, and soon after, as an official release.
StevoTVR does the user email stay a hidden field in the Ext or can it be a reference field for view ? It sends an email of notice correct ? Or, does it use the forum PM ?
Have a great weekend !!!
