Re: Responsive layout

My phone has a screen resolution of 480 x 600. Any phpbb page has to be first loaded (completely illegible), then zoomed, then scrolled from side to side to find the navigation links, then the process repeated once a topic is selected, a post is read, etc. etc. It's usable, but only if you're really...

Re: SPAMBOTS - how can we stop them - read FIRST post.

hmmm... Another thing: opening the php and html files in notepad gives me a jumble of lines with little squares as enters... Kinda annoying. Is there some better way to edit these files? with a simple freeware program preferably? When you ftp them to and from your website, make sure you use Ascii m...

Re: SPAMBOTS - how can we stop them - read FIRST post.

I think what's not terribly obvious, unless you've installed MODs before, is that the .xml files within the MOD ARE the instructions. Until you know that, it looks like just a bunch of files, with no help. Sjeng, just find ALL the .xml files within the MOD, and double click them to open them in your...

Re: SPAMBOTS - how can we stop them - read FIRST post.

Sorry, another newbie question - where does that log come from? Thanks Nick That 'log' came from me to 3Di via a PM, as he asked for help in collecting information for his anti-spam bot. As for the 'log', well it's actually a post in the admin section of one of my forums, to note what Spambots had ...

Re: SPAMBOTS - how can we stop them - read FIRST post.

You need to apply the mods to the style(s) in the subfolders of the MOD (at least for the style you have set as default). Nick Thansk Nick, how do you do that ? The MOD contains a "templates" subfolder. Within there are two further subfolders named after the two default styles in phpbb. In each one...

You need to apply the mods to the style(s) in the subfolders of the MOD (at least for the style you have set as default). Then you need to refresh your templates from the Admin control panel -> Styles -> Templates -> Refresh

Re: SPAMBOTS - how can we stop them - read FIRST post.

Can someone please post a very quick how-to on installing this mod? There is no README or similar in the package. Searching for "install mod" or "how to install mod" on this site is forbidden because the words are "too common". I looked in the offline knowledge base and found a subject on how to ins...
