PhpBB Invisible Forum





Scorpio
In PhpBb I would like to know if there is a possibility of creating a forum which can only be seen by members of a certain group only

For example a forum called family which only people who have been included in the group called "family members" can see and enter.
n0obie4life
Set forum permssions to "PRIVATE".

Then go to permissions (for the usergroup) and press allow access or something like that.
Scorpio
Ok.

Could you tell me the mod which is used for the featured discussions in frihost?

If it is available on phpbb.com could you direct me there.

Also, in my forum at www.iscorpio.com/iforums i added a large banner at the top.

but I have a large box(like a cell) surrounding it.

How can I remove it.

What code should be modified in overall header.tpl?

Thank you
n0obie4life
That is a custom mod, although I have made a phpBB mod out of it myself Wink.

The border is most probably due to your file.

         </tr></table></td></tr>

to

   <tr>
     <td><table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">
         <tr>
            <td align="center"><a href="index.php?sid=d0e7e71a61a538fafa18a39e48bf0e09"><img src="http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j215/iScorpio/iscorpio8.jpg" border="0" alt=" Forum Index" vspace="1" /></a></td>
         </tr></table></td></tr>

Sorry, but I'm not really familar with the phpBB templating system, you'll need to find where that is yourself (probably in a header file somewhere)
Scorpio

What do I do?

I tried to install global announcement mod and messed the whole thing up.

Actually it was easy mod that did the messing up
n0obie4life
Uninstall it and install the Announces Suite instead (found on phpBB.com, remember to do the fix too (it's on the first post of the modification page).
Scorpio
I cant even reach my admin panel

How do i do that?

Please Help
n0obie4life
/admin/mods/<whatever the global announce mod folder is>/backups.

Tthere's lots of .php.txt files there. Rename the extention to .php and upload them as accordingly to their respective folders.
Scorpio
No use. The whole thing went bust.

I even loaded a backup I had taken of the files.

Still no avail

Easymod makes a backup of files that it edited..

in the folder

/admin/mods/<whatever you put the mod folder as>/backups/

what do you mean by "the whole thing went bust".
Scorpio
I replaced all the backups but still it did not work(i did it right by the way)

So I replaced the forum folders with a backup i took just before installing easy mod.

Still I get the same error.
n0obie4life
It's a 403 error now..?
Bondings
I'll try to take a look at it and solve the problem. However, the forum seems to be gone now.

I think so too.

If you can fix it up, thank you very much Very Happy
Bondings
I found your forums now. You uploaded it in a duplicate folder. http://www.iscorpio.com/iforums/iforums/

However, it seems like the database of that forum, scorpio_forum, only contains the changes made by easymod or something similar. It certainly doesn't contain the posts and all settings.

Was the original database called scorpio_phpbb?

No it was called scorpio_forum
Bondings
I uploaded a backup of your scorpio_forum database as scorpio_forum2, but it's the same thing. It seems like the backup you used overwrote the settings and other data of the phpbb database and that's why it is giving an error.

I hope you do have another complete backup of your database. Otherwise, I can restore the scorpio_phpbb database, but that might have been another forum.

The current database (scorpio_forum) seems to lack most important data like topics, posts, private messages and config settings.
n0obie4life
scorpio, I think I know what you did.

You used easymod to run the SQL queries. This is a bad mistake, seriously.

Easymod was never good at handling SQL queries. By letting it, you are risking your WHOLE database being destroyed.

Never ever let easymod deal with your database.

Take that as a lesson if you did Wink

I sure did learn the lesson,

I, trying to be clever downloaded the iforums folder.

I did not think about the backup option in the admin panel.

I noticed that only after using easy mod but it was too late

@Bondings Thanks for your help.

I think I'd better create a new forum. That will be my third one

On the positive side I had only one member and I can ask him to re register.

And I backed up the only post I made.
