yep seems like there is a few bugs with the install, smiles arent working, signatures arent working and bbcode is off, and if you enable them in the user profile they still dont work.

Stil at least we can post, the rest is just eye candy anyway

I always thought the graphical emoticons were always a bit overly silly. I prefer the old-school non-annoying text-based ones. Like this. :)

Seems to be forum specific. BBCode is on and other options are present in Test Messages and TV-B-Gone - didn't check others.

[quote="magician13134"]Have you installed some kind of spam protection? I set up a PHPBB3 forum about a week ago, and I have thousands of spam posts already! I have a CAPTCHA, but it doesn't seem to be working....[/quote]

I had one up for about 2 weeks and with CAPTCHA set up and I never had any spam post...maybe those robots just "like" you. :-)

Also, I've noticed that I now see new posts that I've seen before, unless I actually read to topic or log out. It used to mark them all as read when you closed the browser or left the forum or whatever

I liked the old way of links opening in a new window/tab. Now they open in the same one, and I hate to have to click on the back button! :D

Was this directed at my comment about the read posts?
If so, I kinda liked it the old way, now the 'unread' posts pile up really quickly. Also a quick note, I just logged out, then back in and everything is still 'unread'....

So you open *every* link in a new tab/window? If so, you're really just substituting the X (either on a window or tab) for a back button, right? :)

You can enable this functionality easily in your browser, anyway. All browsers that I'm aware of can be set up to open links in a new tab/window when you click the link with your middle mouse button. Some (Firefox, at least) do this by default.

There is a link in each forum that says "mark topics read". It marks all topics in a forum as read without having to actually having to read each one. This gives more control for people who don't necessarily read every forum each time they log on but still want to keep abreast of new threads. Whenever I'm done reading the interesting topics I click on that link and either go back to the forum listing or log out. Worksforme! :)
