Those forums do not give even the administrator much control.

Found it. I thought it was part of the profile, but I see it is part of the post itself. I have turned off silent edit.

Bob

ps. And here is an edit to demonstrate this.

pps. Wait a mo. The default is for it to be ON. I cannot guarantee I'll always remember to untick the box.

He may/may not be a banker.

He's the one who installed phpbb in the server.

I assumed that the people who are offering the chance to create the forum would be the ones with more options.

There are forums for free forums ( I am not kidding ) that will help unlock the functionality.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**Online**

If it is unlockable.

Some forums I have looked at will allow you to enter code to change the functionality.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

Why not use a server where you alone manage all the code without caring about anyone Else's intervention?

How do they make their money?

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

That I do not know. Some of them promote ads in their user's pages.

Did you see that site ending with a .co.nf?

No I did not see that.

Many people do not want the ads.

Okay, see this site: www.anonymous-chatter.co.nf and www.guide-to-the-galaxy.co.nf

I remembered the answer!

They have premium features available only for paid users( but to run a forum you do not need that).
