trying to install easymod on phpbb running on localhost

I've been setting my laptop all day (Mac, OS X 10.3.8) with MySQL, PHP, and just recently phpBB so I can test things locally instead of replying on an ISP and host. I went through phpBB isntallation seemlessly, no apparent problems. First thing I'm doing is installing EasyMOD (of course ;)) and this...

WOW. 1.) it. is. free. 2.) fabulous permission system 3.) subforums 4.) friend/foe list 5.) more general control over everything (custom bbcodes, authentication things, image paths etc.) 6.) poll options 7.)...

Re: Banned People Returning?

in the US, cable users have a 'dynamic' IP as well, but they don't change that often, probably monthly or longer before the lease on the IP runs out. i've got this hack from phpbbhacks installed and it is alright. there are ways around it, but to the casual troll/flamer, they might be annoyed and le...

Re: phpvBB?

forgive me for butting in, but i hope this would be an appropriate place and time to ask; with features in 3.0 turned off, will there be any noticable overhead? i can see fick's point of view in that all the features even when turned off might bog a board down although i really dont understand how t...

Re: Will phpBB2.2 feature EasyMod, or something similar?

i appreciate easymod, but after the first two or three mods, it was useless almost. i'd preview everything and get errors and i found that i preferred to just dive in and apply the mods myself. it also helps me learn more about php/phpbb.

Re: phpBB Boards are getting attacked by a strange group

Right now we're just trying to get the server operational. Annoyingly many such nations whinge and moan about the "digital divide" between themselves and North America, Europe, Japan and how terrible it is and it's need to be addressed. Yet these nations and their corporations frequently do nothing...

Re: Just read the phpBB.com notice

i think jportal is just noticing that it keeps getting hyped up. from what i've read from the phpbb group the new style should be quite impressive.
