Out of curiousity, did you decide to use premade ones or did you create your own? If this is in the wrong forum, move it.

No, this is the correct forum to ask questions. As for the template, I wanted to make my own so it could be customized nicely. Took a while to figure out all the little bits, but when you compare it with phpBB comes with when you first install it, it was WELL worth the effort.

I have just started using PHPboard as well and probably my two biggest beefs are the initial PHP board style and the excessive email bounces that I am constantly getting when people try to "notify me when a reply is posted" on the thread. I've looked all around on how to disable this feature too, and I can't find anything.

It is heartening to know that you were able to change the styles with relative ease. I'm going to work on doing that as well. I noticed the template itself is amazingly easy to fiddle with. I guess I'm wary of charting new waters because I'm a PERL disciple and have not yet seen the wonders of PHP.

To turn off the constant reply notifications, just go into your profile and choose to not receive them. That's all there is to it.

As for fiddling with phpBB, phpBBhacks.com and phpbb.com are both great resources.

hi, raize.

i think he was saying he gets bounces through the server when other people have that feature on. is there a way to disable the "notification" option altogether for everyone?

There might be, but I haven't seen anything like that in the administration panel. You could possibly set it to send any messages that bounce to an email address that you don't use or somethin... I'm really not sure.

I think it was by editing the posting_smilies.tpl file, but I could be wrong. I modified so many different files for this board it's hard to say. It could very well be in the posting.php file. There's tutorials on how to do it out there though, and if ya can't find those, just post in the phpbbhacks.com support forums and someone will surely help ya.

What I ended up doing was changing the administrator email. Bad way to solve the problem, but I haven't gotten a good chance to learn PHPbb, let alone PHP, yet. I've noticed that handling cookies in PHP is a lot easier than it is in PERL.

As far as the emoticons things I'm going to try that phpbbhacks.com. That looks like the site I found the first time I ever tried to fiddle with PHPBB but I never bookmarked it. Thanks for the help.
