Ok so you can search for threads with same tags by clicking on the tag, but wouldn't it be better if the default search box on the top also gave you as a result threads with that word in a tag? Because that word might not be actually written anywhere in the actual text. It would be great for searching threads on the same topic
Hi, I have been using wbb3, while I am no expert, I was able to place advertisements pretty much anywhere I wanted in the 3, but the template system in 4 kinda confuses me, why are some the same as the ones in wbb3 and some have wbb_ in front of them? These seem new to me. I know one is for burning board and one for wcf, but still. For example, I was like completely unable to get an ad to show up by placing it in the header template, although I tried the same things that worked in wbb3.
I think a great idea would be to write an idiot-proof step-by-step tutorial on placing ads in wbb4. Just a suggestion
Hi can I ask one more thing, I am not sure how banning/ deleting users works. I mean if I ban or delete someone, does it also ban their IP address or can they just go ahead and make a new account? Is there a way to ban IP's? Thanks
Great, thanks That is exactly what I needed, i did not know it was in wcf1_user_to_groups. Stupid mistake, well at least now I know. We're back in business, cheers!
Hi, this might sound stupid but while deleting some spam users, I must have disabled admin rights for myself, now I cannot get into ACP with my admin account, it is not banned, I can still log into it in the forum and make threads, but the administration tab under my account is gone. I cannot find the admin rights in any SQL tables, can anyone help?
Ok I moved it to Hawk Host, I heard great things about them and could not find any bad reviews online, they are not as big as fatcow or hostgator, which is a good thing I guess, they supposedly do not oversell servers. They do not claim to be "unlimited", but hostgator or fatcow are not unlimited too, the only thing unlimited is the amount of bull**** you will get from the support when your site is running slow. Anyway, if they suck too I have 30 days to get my money back, which is what I did with fatcow
Hi I am looking for a good host for my forum in the US (east) I know people here are mostly from Europe, but I just wanted to see if anyone has any tips. Looking for a linux server (idk what else my criteria should be?) Currently I am with Fatcow and it is sh*t. Would you recommend VPS or shared or cloud? I really don't know, cloud seems quite interesting and ok price.
Ok I got it, thanks
So i assume you put this in the additional css in the style, replacing the current one?
Hi i want to ask if it is possible to disable breadcrumbs on all pages. I just added some custom pages for easier navigation, but obviously breadcrumbs will not reflect that. I dont know if there is any way except rewriting all templates, which i do not want to do. Thanks
Nice, that was the issue. I asked them to raise it to 128 and it works again. Thanks a lot Alex, if you ever get to American Midwest, I probably owe you a beer for all your help
Yeah I got that, but I think the problem is me- I don't know where to look I have the CGI error log in my fatcow control panel, but it is empty. The normal log does not contain any errors
Well this is all I got from it, unless I am looking in a wrong place (which is entirely possible, sorry)
Error 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED): Unknown error.
Sorry to bother you so much
Hi, over the past 2 days I imported around 3000 forums, after I exceeded 1000 the Show Forums (content->forums->show forums) started acting up, whenever i clicked Submit on that page (after changing order or something) it would log me out and not do the changes. Still, no big deal as I can just go in and change them individually. But now when I have 3000 forums, the Show Forums page just crashes, does not show anything, Internal Server Error.
Now I can't really modify the forums that I already have, I can still make new forums forums and everything else works, it is just this one page in ACP.
I think this is the error ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED
Thanks for your help!
ok I forgot 1k threads in wbb1_thread, I would probably do it along with step 1)
Ok so let's see if I got this straight:
1) create 1k threads in wbb1_1_post
2) create 1k polls in wcf1_poll
3) create 2k poll options in wcf1_poll_option
4) link each of the 1k threads to a pollID
No worries. That's good it is like that in WBB4, because I wish Position was in the same table, that way I could do it all in one step.
I have one more question, right now I have over a 1000 professor forums, I would like to add a Poll Thread (so that people can give thumbs up or thumbs down to the professor) to each one- obviously I am not going to do it manually, I looked into the SQL tables and it seems to me that I cannot do it by just importing into them- I don't think the counters would work, or maybe there would be other problems- it has to be a thread, new post, it has to have its own counter etc, so it needs to be present in many tables, right?
Can you think of a fast way to include some poll into each of these forums? I know you mentioned some other way when we talked about creating the forums, I don't think I quite got that.
Ok I think I found it. It is in wbb1_1_board_structure, variable Position
Well that is where I was looking before posting here, but it's not there- there are sortField, sortOrder and postSortOrder. I assume these are for Sorting of threads, Sort order of threads and Sort order of posts respectively.
This is from my wbb1_1_board
