General Support / Need help getting a dump of members data
« on: August 24, 2019, 09:26:44 pm »
I'm the admin for that's pretty inactive now.

Would it be possible to get a dump of the member database table, or even better, a CSV of the database?


General Support / No emails to admin on signups?

I don't know for how long now, but it appears that none of the admins are receiving emails when a new member signs up and needs approval. Is this a setting someplace where I've so far been unable to find? Any other ideas? Thanks!

General Support / Allowing others to see custom profile info?

Is there a way in which a member can allow other members of the forum to view the custom fields in their profile?

In other words, one of the custom profile fields I have is "Name". it'd be nice if a member could set a bit that allows other forum members to view that field, or maybe to have a general setting to allow the viewing of all the custom fields.

Is there a way to do this?


General Support / SMFforfree4 Version?

What version is running on

We're also using the smf code hosted by and it looks like it's missing a number of useful features. They're running smf 1.1.5 code.

And I can't find out the version of code you're running here. Are they just running an older version or something? Can they upgrade?


BTW, I first went to and posted something there but that's apparently the wrong place. You might want to put a forwarding message there or something.

General Support / Subordinating and reordering topics?
« on: July 23, 2008, 06:44:51 pm »
I can see how to move a topic to a different message board, but I was wondering...

Is it possible to change the order of the list of topics within a message board?

Is it possible to move a topic posting to be a subordinate reply under a different topic instead of its own topic?

Similarly, is it possible to move a reply to be subordinate under a different topic (like in case the author put it in the wrong place)?

This is without deleting it and reposting it of course. If the answer is no, then...
Is it possible for a moderator to post something as though some other member posted it?


Suggestions / Import/Export of Membership list
« on: July 10, 2008, 03:30:59 pm »
It'd be *very* useful to be able to import and export to CSV files the list of members and their data. This should also be very easy to implement, just dump out the database table of members.

Export would be useful to build lists and databases for snail-mailings, etc.

Import would be useful when uploading a bunch of new members without making them all register.

Could you please tell me if it's possible to export the membership list of a forum into something like a CSV file I could slurp into Excel or something?

And what about importing, could I put a list of people in a certain CSV ordered file or something and import it into the membership list?


Suggestions / Global set 'notify'

For our forum, I'm expecting to have a number of folks who are not very computer-literate and are used to elists. It would be very convenient to be able to easily set a global 'notify' flag so that they would get an email whenever anything gets posted to any board without having to click the "NOTIFY" on each board. It'd have a link to the posting so it'd be very easy for them to get to the new posting.

Also the tab that's there is a toggle and they could end up clicking it twice and turning it back off again if their  eyes glaze over when you put out the dialog box telling whether it's turning on or off. Or better yet, have two buttons, like "NOTIFY-ON" and "NOTIFY-OFF" or something.

I found from a search how I could ask additional questions during registration (pretty neat!) but I can't get the "Type" pull-down selection thing to work. No matter what I select, it always goes back to "Text" when I save the settings. Any suggestions?

BTW, I initially set up a test forum to try out a few things to see if it would do the job and I'm done with it. I didn't realize until I read the help that I can't actually delete the forum, but I assume you-folks can. Might as well save some space, so please delete it.
It's called 'mesa-test'

General Support / Default notification of new postings?
« on: July 06, 2008, 09:22:04 am »
Forum Url:
Is it possible to set a default someplace so that any topic or reply posted sends an email to all members that there's a new posting available? I realize they can set 'notify' once a topic is started, but it's difficult to remember to set it all the time as well as they have to remember to open "Additional Options...". Also, when a new topic is started, nobody will know it's there unless they actually check the forum manually, right?

And is it possible for a moderator or admin to send an email to all members?

Thanks very much!
