Re: Maintenance = prepairing site for Olympus?

If the venerated phpBB.com had to be offline for days to just prepare it for phpBB 3, that wouldn't be too inviting to those wanting to upgrade to it on the servers we mere mortals use...

Just a thought. :)

Re: Will phpBB3 have first user as #1?

Logical number perhaps, but phpBB 2.0.x has the first registered user as user_id #2.

And, it would seem that updating from 2.0.x to 3.0.x will not change that, though conceivably a fresh install could do things differently.

Re: Olympus download

http://area51.phpbb.com/cvs/" target="_blank That's where you can get phpBB 3.0 development code, codenamed "Olympus." If you want to get phpBB 2.0.19, the current stable release (and the only release you're gonna get support for or a really stable site with), use the link found at http://www.phpbb....

Re: Where can I find simple help for PhpBB users? Sorry.

My guess is Pre BBCode or something similar, and it creates [pre]text here[/pre] tags, very similar to the HTML equivalent.

I'm not sure if the PRE HTML tags work with HTML on; I've never tempted fate by turning it on to test it.

Re: Where can I find simple help for PhpBB users? Sorry.

There are BBCode extending modifications available, including one which adds a PRE tag for displaying preformatted text properly. I'm not sure if phpbbhacks.com has it, but it is available via phpbb.com when that site is back up and running.

Re: Is this legal?

If I remember the knowledge base article (and dozens of posts on the subject) well enough, that is an acceptable copyright notice. They retain the phpBB copyright, do not obscure it in any way, and do not combine their copyright with it. They claim copyright of the forum (the site itself) but not th...

Re: Collectors?

Well, I guess Christian literature, music, and movies are what I actively collect, I suppose.

But I also have a nice, valuable comic book collection thanks to my dad passing down his childhood collection to me a few years back... :P

Re: The MSNBot is eating bandwidth!

Couldn't you just block all image folders from the bots using a robots.txt file? If bots can't download images, they will use significantly less bandwidth.

Re: How Do I Get More Bot Traffic

Once Google discovers your site (as it has), your focus should be (as it always should have been) on content. Check out this article on how to make your site more popular. If you're not adding real content daily, don't complain that bots aren't crawling. They, like users, don't really care about the...
