Is it possible to add a name feature, as I've seen on another forum, encircled in the picture below, as I've had problems remembering people's names because of the increase in members.

Just a quick question: how is the security against hackers specifically targeting a forum? Are there any security features in place?
If we are to be honest no forum software is fully protected from the exploits constantly developed by hackers but we will to try our best to protect your forum. You should back up your site at least once a month.

What format is the .bak back-up file? zip, gzip, bzip2?  Just for future reference.
The backup files are encrypted to secure data.

Thanks.  Yes, I have started doing that.

Yes, but is it possible to get to know what kind of encryption.  Is it any of those encryption types listed in the previous post of something else?

The backup file is not in zip, gzip or bzip2 formats. For instance if you're making some kind of change to settings in an application, it might make a .bak file which will let you restore your previous settings.

Sorry, we do not offer this because we must edit the source code ,templates and database to install it.

But would it be possible to be told what format your back-up files are compressed to?


That's okay about the name feature... just saw it on another forum and thought I'd ask.

It is just that I would like to move the forum to another service, and if you don't want to share it with me, would you then share it with the provider of the other service so we can upload the back-up file there?

A topic was lost during a move to another section as the forum suffered from a server error when the topic was moved.  I have an older .bak file of the forum that has most of the topic, except possibly the most recent posts... would it be possible to get that one topic re-instated on the forum from that .bak file without affecting the whole forum.

Let me know.

I have at least one member confirmed who cannot access the site.  He gets a server error, even though the forum is running fine.  The user in question is Darth Phaeton, but there may be more.

Help please.

Could you please send me the backup of your site and the name of the thread which you want to restore.

Thanks.
