Re: phpBB updated

All of the forum is where the threads are I think. The "Fixed" content of the site https://www.pothos.org/ is flat HTML that I harvested from a very out of date CMS that was full of security holes. If you wanted the ability to make fixed pages again then it might be possible to do it with ...

Re: Emails/Alexias and Main Site/Thomas

Greetings, Alexias, as a moderator, I still see only the dark box, so I assume only you and Thomas can see emails. Thomas, is the site update still going to allow us to post articles on the main pages outside the Forum? Regards, Sikander I think that would be the "Pages" add-on which I ha...

I think you can move a thread to any forum by moving the first post. I'm not sure about moving to topics. Maybe I misunderstood.

Re: Direction of the forum

I think if you just move the first post then all the rest of the thread will follow?

Re: Direction of the forum

Hello! I'm still around, though left IT in 2004(!) and my main interests now are cycling and, er, cycling (I've lost 20kg and built my own beautiful bike this year). I'm very open to handing site maintenance to Alexias. Whilst I started the site in 1994, I don't think I have any claim on it morally ...

Re: Problem with website

Thanks Derek. It was the site and was caused by:

a) Me not doing my job by being up to date with site software updates on the content (CMSMS) side; and
b) The web host doing their job and keeping PHP cutting edge.

Fixed now!

Site update

I updated the forum software today at about 10:00GMT. I made a small mistake and any posts for about 10 minutes at around this time are lost for ever... Oops. I have also switched on a "mod" that will slowly delete inactive (not logged in for six weeks since registering) or lost users (not...

Security Update

Hi everyone, I am still getting a steady stream of human registrations for the purpose of spamming. Some recent users will have had to answer the Bucephalas question in order to have their registration approved. My next idea is to try out a service called CloudFlare to protect (and speed up) pothos....
