Spamhaus function repeatedly refuses IPs

My efforts to post in this board have been repeatedly refused by the Spamhaus function, saying that various IPs I use are compromised. I live on a small island state and the nearly single internet provider provides a new IP after each disconnect of the router. About 4 out of 5 of these new IPs are b...

clone_post out of the box

I already asked and argued to have a clone_post function as an extension here . But considering that a post is the one basic element the whole board is made of, cloning a post in order to modify and then merge or open a new topic with that clone should imho be a standard, inbuilt function in phpBB. ...

Re: Repeating topic title in each post..

Repeating the topic title within a thread (without Re:) makes much sense for me - it reminds users of the topic's subject and on my board off-topics are not welcomed.

phpBB2 -> Ascraeus Converter?

Hi,

A quick search didn't find that question yet:
Will it be possible to directly convert from phpBB2 to Ascraeus?

(Changes in php will probably force me to upgrade my beloved modded phpBB2- Board and I wonder if I can wait to upgrade directly to 3.1. once it's ready.)

Thx

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

I'm sorry for you guys, for all the work that has been maliciously put upon you, which also slows down valuable projects of thousands of other people. :( That's a lot of bad Karma for the originator - I wonder how anybody could like to be responsible for such an unholy mess? Keep up the good work wh...

Re: step1 : Login screen keeps popping up

Thx for the offer, Nightrider! I prefer to create a Test board on the same server, then use it to Test install the MODs. That's even much better! - I do have the space, but not the knowledge yet (first board was installed by provider). Not sure, if I should continue to ask under this thread or open ...

Re: step1 : Login screen keeps popping up

Installation Confirmed. EasyMOD is installed! Thank you so much - looking forward for a lot less stress updating and modding my board now! Is it OK to run EM only locally and then ftp the EM-changed files to the live-server? BTW: Love your avatar (although the text is not easily associated with the ...

Re: step1 : Login screen keeps popping up

Should I re-run EM_install now?
Will it harm, as the EM tables already exist in the db (Provider did the MySQL-job for me, before I had phpMySQL-access myself)?
