Hi smartys.
Firstly let me thank you for your offer to help.
Secondly, let me slap my forehead .. PunBB had no problem. I just did not upload the modified file

I have made some mods to my new forum but punBB seems to have cached some of the mods that I have deleted. Is there a way to delete this cache without affecting the functionality of the forum?

Maybe there should be a "How do I" forum in here, which will allow people to ask questions regarding the functionality of punBB.

Similar question here. Is there a way to have the forum accept html? Textpattern forum has it (i could easilly ask there but maybe this is the proper venue for this question)

I just started a forum using punBB. Although I have registered here some time ago, this is my first real project using punBB.

Question: is there a way for PunBB to recognise smart quotes copied and pasted by other programs (ie word, pages, whatever). Our new forum seems to be attracting a lot of copy/pasters and as they do that smart quotes are inserted in the posts rendering the post non valid xhtml strict.

I realise that forums cannot be so 'strict' in xhtml validation but the problem with smart quotes is nevertheless there as they are not visible  by some browsers (replaced by questionmarks in ie mac... ok dead but still kicking for some users).

For the sake of this post here are some smart quotes: ? and here is the validation page

Hi all although I have registered some time ago, I did not have the chance to experiment with punBB yet so I concider myself new in this forum and software.
A very simple question.
Is it possible to have an invited members only forum with punBB?
