  1. I was advised to post in here because my enquiry about this issue wasn't anything that could be resolved in a ticket. Since 2002 my forums installation has been in domain/forums/ and I'd like to keep it like that. I want links to other websites to open in a new tab (I have set it to force this in Posting/Links), but I want links inside the same domain to open in the same tab. Now with that setting if I link to anything outside the /forums/ on my same domain then it forces 'external' to be put into the link and thus such links open in a new tab/window. Apparently this behaviour is decided by the board URL in the conf_global.php and there doesn't seem to be anything in-between which might be tweaked to change it to work with domain instead of domain/forums/ I'd be happy with a little hack if anyone can think of one, but I'd prefer a setting.
  2. Easy Pages

    Thanks Ryan. I just couldn't find anything anywhere. Maybe reference was included in your 3.x version (which seems to be unlinked now).
  3. Easy Pages

    Just a fundamental noob question regards including a block on a PHP enabled page in Easy Pages (or elsewhere). I cant seem to find any reference. I just made a block (PHP) with a URL Key = 'dnames'. So how do I include it?
  4. I was getting bombed by lots of ridiculous sounding new members a couple of months ago. It stopped dead as soon as I removed the existing Question and Answer Challenge entries and put some new ones in. Make them something specific to your site theme - something that your potential members are likely to know.
  5. Suggestion - Profile Permissions

    Thanks to Rimi for the mod, but in addition to CallieJo's ideas - Guests/Everyone - Members Only - Just Friends.
  6. Suggestion - Profile Permissions

    Deja Vu! The same advocates and the same opponent! For what it's worth I still think that profile permissions would be a good idea. I don't see how the above forums topics scenareo might apply. Shall we meet up again in 14 months? :)
  7. Youtube media tag

    This is how I did it - Admin/Look & Feel -> Bad Word Filter -> Add New Filter. Before http://youtu.be/ After http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
  8. Youtube media tag

    A good way to fix this is to put the first part of the more recent style share link into the swear filter - to be replaced by the old one. It works well. :)
  9. Contact Form

    oops - wrong forum. :)
  10. Contact Form

    I think that it is automatically sent to those in the groups that you've selected (in Member groups to receive message - if email is selected for handling messages).
  11. Contact Form

    It worked on my test board fine yesterday, but today I find that the Announcement Text is replaced by 'Array' and the spam question text has disappeared - replaced by '1', with another 'Array' beneath and the recaptcha has disappeared. No worries because it's only the test board.
  12. Contact Form

    Thanks. I was waiting for this because although the old version continued to work with 3.2 I couldn't get near the settings. One suggestion - a default department (selected),
  13. Suggestion - Profile Permissions

    How easy would it be to do this at the most simple level though? Member has profile set to public or members only. A tinyint in an ocean of blobs. :)
  14. At the simplest level, it would be a nice feature if community members could have the ability (if admins allowed) to have their profiles viewable by guests or not. It started with a few members complaining that the world could see their profile pictures or other stuff that they'd put on, then a few more chipped in to say that they'd customize theirs a bit more if only members had access. As a result of that we ended up turning off profile view for guests - where other members didn't mind, or actually wanted their profiles visible to everyone. I suppose that making it a bit more complex like 'only allow friends' or choosing which bits to show would be a bigger ask, but stuff like that might be a bit more 'community orientated'.
  15. As with permissions for skins, for forums and for various installed apps, I can see a reason why permissions are desirable. Indeed, Mat didn't need to code in a permissions feature, but he must have wanted to and nobody forced him to. :)
