Welcome to phpBB3

Postby jackhodgson » Wed Dec 19, 2007 5:07 pm

This is an example post in your phpBB3 installation. Everything seems to be working. You may delete this post if you like and continue to set up your board. During the installation process your first category and your first forum are assigned an appropriate set of permissions for the predefined usergroups administrators, bots, global moderators, guests, registered users and registered COPPA users. If you also choose to delete your first category and your first forum, do not forget to assign permissions for all these usergroups for all new categories and forums you create. It is recommended to rename your first category and your first forum and copy permissions from these while creating new categories and forums. Have fun!

Jack,

I have a couple of PHPBB on my sites that I originally set up with the auto approval. But there are webbots out there that look for PHPbb and they will create userids and bombard you with Porn ads, internet pharmacy ads, and other unwanted posts.

You might consider manually approving user names or watching for certain IP address creating multiple usernames etc. Just a heads up.

BTW, I love the podcast and am toying with creating a video podcast of my own. I'm struggling a bit sine I'm not a Mac guy, and I'm trying to make a windows machine play in a Mac word. Guess you use what you know, plus the money I saved instead of buying a new mac laptop went to flying.

Bjjones,

Thanks for you thoughts on the forum. I'm familiar with the problem of website spam, from my blogs. I'm on the lookout for that, and I hope I'll be able to manage it when it happens.

If you're familiar with phpbb, maybe you can help me out with some questions I have.

First of all, I'd like to be able to limit one of the Forums so that anyone can post a reply, but only I can create new topics. I've looked at the "permissions" stuff, but I can't see anything that seems to do this.

What do you think?

Thanks.

-- Jack Hodgson
