PHPBB works very strangely...

Post by gflex1 » Tue Sep 10, 2019 11:19 am

Have a strange problem. My forum behaves very very strangely. I installed fresh phpbb and now:

1. Social media plugin from Oneall gives me 500 errors, but in their website, if I testing social login connections it shows me that everything I set up correctly;

2.[/b] Can't insert any youtube videos... It only shows link, not a video. Tried to use different plugins for that. FIXED

3. "Mailto" doesn't work: let's say I put this: write me an email Doenst open an email program like it done earlier

Tried on newest Chrome, Opera, Firefox... Help me ;)

P.S. I disabled Cloudflare, no caching, etc.

1. Seek support from Oneall.

3. html for mailto:

Code: Select all

<a href="mailto:someaddress@example.com">optional link text, e.g. Email us</a>

The email code you are using in your first post works fine. Did you try clicking the email link there?

Can you click the link I provided?
Can you use the mailto link from other (non-phpBB) websites?
Do you have a local mail program installed?
