Re: i cannot view my board settings

you go find whatever portal system/MOD you want for phpbb3. then download it, then read the instructions for installing it.

each one could have different ways to install.

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

It can only affect phpbb3 boards that are on the same server with a version of phplist that is not up to date. from what I have read here, the only thing the hacker did was to gather the em...

Re: Speed

well, your board seems quite fast to me. you don't have enough members to be overloading the server. and for all the problems that godaddy has, it seems to be running your board and site very well. can you be more specific about what the problem is? what do you mean by "slow" and exactly when does t...

Re: Move config.php out of Web Root

Re: logging out does not work!

can we have a link to your board please. the one in your sig is not working.

we need to be able to test so we can see where the redirect is happening etc.

create a test user accound and post the username/password . you can delete the account after we have solved your problem.

Re: Can anyone help me prevent spam?

the answer to your question is no.

each of those lines is basically a range of IPs.

that makes it even harder to do. I am not sure how you would accomplish this.
