I am sure they must have a validated TinyMCE for phpBB at phpBB official website.

It is cold here.

yup, it's crazy i know:( but what can do.. and being that its makers are volunteers and the software is still free, i think it's ok just the way it is for now.

Well, that is why I prefer Wordpress over others. Wordpress can let you build website, blogs, and forums. It has plugins for almost anything you can imagine and it is free. I have used a lot of other scripts. I found Wordpress to be most powerful and easy to use.

agreed sid! it's super user friendly but still not as good as phpBB as far as forums go.. phpBB simply allows you to modify so much and you really don't need to much script knowledge to be able to apply other people's mods. thing about wysiwyg editor for phpBB - i'd love to have it but i'm not too crushed i don't have it? - you know what i mean?:))

My forum is on Wordpress. I use Simple-press forum plugin for Wordpress. It does let me modify anything. I can do more on a Wordprress hosted forum then on phpBB, e.g. cross post from forum to blog and blog to forum, etc. I do not mean phpBB is not good.

Sid I can see that you post on Spambot Security, well spacifacally this thread http://www.spambotsecurity.com/forum/vi ... =33&t=1388
I'm getting this when trying to install a mod in php, Is it Zbblock ?

Never mind, I deleted a lot of the Zbblock files, and can get on my site now, it had me blocked as a spammer :huh: had GF blocked also again .
It's a great add-on, but a lot of trouble .

Sorry I did not check this forum for a couple of days. Most probably your php mod was executing some strange path. Anyhow, always look in killed_log.txt for the relevant message. Then a bypass could be added for it. Killed_log.txt logs actual reason for denying the access.

Yeah a mod was when installing, had me baffled a bit.
I had to delete the files out to get back in, and let GF back in.
Oh well it worked good to a point, I'm just a bit ignorant of it, and filled with other stuff to full with it right now. Ill try it again on a later date.

Hey Happy New year, take care Sid :)
