Posts in Languages other than ENGLISH

Unfortunately to date (Feb. 2018) phpBB does not have a fully integrated google translate function/add-on/mod. In other words, the forum member can select his own language to show the board functionality in his own language but his POSTS will only be shown to other users exactly as he entered them. ...

Why we leave FACEBOOK

There is only ONE timeline, so ...

Re: KNOWN BUGS

I have friends in 3rd world countries report this but all western countries dont seem to see this. There is nothing I can do about it. Its not strictly a bug, some parts of the code timeout - ...

Forum Only Visible To Members

Based on my experience in many forums throught the years it became clear that lurkers that only read but never contribute have no place in a community like this. That and a severe lack of real qualification are the weak points of the FACEBOOK groups. A group may have 30.000 members but only maybe 30...

Account verification disabled

Because I see new members stuck on the email verification (dunno why, maybe spamfolder not checked??) I have disabled this feature for now.
If the board does not get overrun by SPAM I will keep it that way, however, if spammers appear it goes back to the default verification by email.

How to place media like Youtube and Vimeo

We have a great plug-in that covers about 200 different media currently available on the internet and displays them correctly. For that to work you must enclose the media URL in the media brackets which you get by clicking on the little screen icon next to "image". E.g.: [media]https://www.youtube.c...
