I have installed a thank you extension. Just click on the thumb up on the far right to say thank you.

I am also thinking of installing a react to the post extension. It will be as pictures below.

Party On! :joint: :hangl:

Just playing devils advocate... isn't installing all these little extra bells and whistles what led to the last forum being wiped ? Will they only work until the next PHPbb update and then it's start all over again ?

Just my personal opinion, I'd keep the forum basic/simple/reliable.

The problem came when I tried to update the bells and whistles, the pic crawler at the top of the forum to be exact. The truly sad thing is, if I knew then what I know now I could have fixed my fuck up. How do I know that? I've already had the same problem and recovered from it during the rebuild. I've also learned which extension programmers to avoid, and which extensions work well together and which ones don't.
So if nothing else I have become a better PHPBB admin/maintenance programmer. :drinkingcheers:

The php is pretty easy, you should learn mysql as it's the database that inevitably gets minced. The bb software you can easily re-upload but all the 'content' is in the database. :thumbup:

On a side note, I wish people (extensions writers) would stop updating stuff, I had a major failure at my cgurl site recently because of that. I had to upgrade to PHP7 in the end and the gallery scripts are written for PHP5 :thumbdown: On the plus side though, i did get an html5 uploader out of it which makes my life a lot easier :P
