Fifo,

Good, now you can get your name printed in any color you want.

BTW, if you want folks to go to your forum you just might want to post a link to it.

Dale,

Yes, my name is in red, I'm an admin there.

But I just installed phpBB on the server, and a VirtualBox server is not accessible to everyone because it's an IP address and you need to be connected to the same WiFi network as the server is on.

Dale,

Try to access this IP address: http://xxx.xxx.x.xxx/phpbb/
You will not be able to access it.

Even Guest user is an administrator. I can't wait till its open to the net. I want my name in red too!

Bruce,

No, I tried clicking on Guest and it links to the admin profile.
And if you want your name in red, you need to be an admin or create your own phpBB forum. I used Ubuntu Server 12.04.1.

Fifo,

Cool, a forum no one can access. What a clever idea! No worries about spam posts.

Fifo,

If no one can access your forum then it is true that you will not get any spam.

You will not get any posts either.

Isn't getting posts the whole point of having a forum?

uhhhh, well, as admin he is able to post messages. So technically he can have posts without connecting to the net.
And I have no doubt that he will also reply to them.

Dale,

I made the forum for testing purposes.
I know that I won’t get any posts.
It is the point, but I’m just testing the forum.

Bruce,

Yes, I can post on my forum.
No, it requires an internet connection.
Yes, I can reply to the posts in my forum.
