Re: FAQ: Copyright

Copyright - good topic:
I am working on an edited "release" of PunBB right now that would make it easier for beginners, with a number of useful mods already installed.
Do I need to ask the mod authors for permission?

FluxBB - v1.4.8

Re: FAQ: Copyright

No, mods are released under the GPL: any copyright that the mod authors have added to the code need to be left intact though

Re: FAQ: Copyright

Your text is just a bit too long: make it shorter and it won't wrap wink
Alternatively, wait and see if anyone knows the proper CSS to make it not wrap

what sort of issues?!

i dont know what those queries are any way

how do i fix it?

Re: FAQ: Copyright

anyone?

Re: FAQ: Copyright

Queries are the "orders" that are sent to the database. In other words, just to open that one file, your website made contact with the database 126 times, which probably makes it slow, which is NOT a property of PunBB...
Just post your file here.

Re: FAQ: Copyright

No, don't post it here: this isn't the place to debug his install.
If you want to try figuring out where those queries are coming from, make a new topic in Troubleshooting wink
