Here's some more trivia from a volunteer webmaster who inherited phpBB as one of his website components and is trying to make things as easy as possible for his 1450+ forum members:
This is what I receive when I log into the Administrative Control Panel and get the Index Page:
"Welcome to phpBB
Thank you for choosing phpBB as your board solution. This screen will give you a quick overview of all the various statistics of your board. The links on the left hand side of this screen allow you to control every aspect of your board experience. Each page will have instructions on how to use the tools."
When I then click on the Manage Users link on the left hand side and look for the instructions: None, nada, zilch,etc.
After spending way more time than it deserved, I actually found a workaround using "Prune".
When I reported this I'm told: "I guess that's what the instructions are for P:" Those instructions are buried 4 layers deep in a website that isn't referenced anywhere on phpBB3.
Until I decided to look for a place to report this so some other poor slob didn't waste his time, I didn't know php.com existed and I've been using the Administration Panel for more than three years!
The respose I received is exactly what would be expected from someone whose nose is buried so far into ones and zeroes that they can't be bothered to actually try to use their product!!!
What right do I have to make the last statement? How about 35 years in engineering, marketing and sales with a pension from IBM?
