A conventional sitemap is designed for static sites, and dynamic sites like phpBB (which has topics not threads by the way) need a different approach. See this extension https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... o_sitemap/
Thank you for recommending this extension. Also, yes, noted that posts on phpBB forums are referred to as topics. Just so used to referring to forum posts as threads though. Old habit. ;)

Re: Some Questions On Configuring phpBB

An issue has arisen with avatars. We are using 225 x 225 pixel avatars and at this size (with running just the Pro Silver default style) phpBB seems to make them dynamic.

So they grow both larger and smaller than the actual pixel size of the avatars as one increases or decreases the size of the browser window.

I don't mind the avatars being made smaller based upon browser size, but when they get enlarged bigger than their native 225 pixels then the avatars don't look sharp anymore.

I also noticed that on this site (with the avatar size of 120 x 120 pixels) that they remain static at that avatar size. So no matter how big or small the browser window is, the avatar size doesn't change.

So I was wondering if there is a way to disable the dynamic sizing function on avatars when using larger avatars such as ones at 225 pixels?

Thank you kindly.

6 - Is there a way to configure a forum to be accessible by a member only after the member has made a certain number of posts? Since Member Groups are not based on number of posts made, then by setting Forum permissions according to Member Groups doesn't seem to work for this. Ranks are based upon number of member posts made, but with Forum permission settings you can only set by Member Groups and not by Ranks. Is there perhaps another good possible solution for this?
Have a look at the Auto Groups extension. https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... to_groups/
Would the following be a simpler extension for that, which would perhaps achieve the same thing?

The post count requirements extension will allow you to set a post count per forum that members must have before they can access it. If you have questions regarding it's usage, please post in the support section for that extension. Since that's my extension, I usually check those areas once a day.

We are gearing off course. if you have an issue, please create a new topic for each issue. That way replies don't get jumbled together. Thanks for understanding.
