    I have made a phpbb Forum www.thejas.tk on a free host. How do i add a shoutbox to the forum? I would also like to know what is the copa fax number in the forum administration? also how does the forum automatically send email to new registered users without me configuring ant smtp or pop address? :?:

    hmmm i have installed a shoutbox but in a phpnuke site
    see it at
    www.pc-gaming.tk

    abt the copa fax no. leave it alone dont worry abt it

    well abt he users getting the mails the host u hosting at should be allowing email forwarding
    to see that it does

    in the admin panel
    go to configration
    in the email settings(last)
    type your email address a normal adress
    which could be a yahoo or a gmail (iam using yahoo)
    and save it
    next time a person regiters at ur site a confirmation mail would be sent to him via this address u put there
    so no need to fiddle around with those smtp etc settings
    NOTE: in order for this to work
    u need to see that
    in the configration panel
    u put the right
    domain name
    maybe www.888.com
    and in the script path field maybe
    /forum
    see that these are right other wise the user will not get the right link
    e.g when a person registers at ur site
    he will get a mail
    in which there would be a link
    which will go this way
    as per say the above confi i gave in the example the link would be
    http://www.888.com/forum/profile.php?mode=activate&u=3&act_key=******

    if the link is right then ur user gets registered

    hope this helps you

    Ive hosted my forum too on dhost. You have got a nice site. Instead of the dhost address. You cud sign up for a free domain name service such as www.tk and get a domain name like mine www.thejas.tk
