Can someone tell me how to get into php bb message board software admin panel? Or is the admin panel located in my website admin panel?


Also in the phb bb admin panel can I set the max attatchment size that a person can send or post and can I set a max picture size they can post? ANd can I make a permanent post showing the rules for the message board? And can I set inactive posts that are not used for 30 days be deleted?

Anyone got a screenshot of their phb bb admin paneL?

Have you got the attachment mod/hack installed?


ANd can I make a permanent post showing the rules for the message board?

Yep, when you make a new post at the bottom of the page just before you click on submit you will see “Post topic as: Normal Sticky Announcement “select announcement or sticky & the post will be there in till you remove the sticky or the announcement


And can I set inactive posts that are not used for 30 days be deleted?

Yep once your in your admin cp go to > Forum Admin > Pruning also go to General Admin > Configuration > General Board Settings > & look for “Enable Forum Pruning” & make sure that’s set to “Yes”

Hope this helps :)
