  1. Create a Push Sidebar for MYBB

    This is a CSS only sidebar code for mybb (and icyboards.) You can adapt it for any other board software, but this guide is focused on mybb.

  2. Recent/Latest Posts Without A Plugin

    If you are anything like me you hate a long list of plugins in your ACP and you really hate uploading plugins because anything could go wrong (like accidentally placing files where they don't belong and finding them 3 weeks later thinking "how the ****?". So here is my replacement for this issue. There are two topics for this section. The first is the basic generic "pulling" and the second is a more advanced clean up for self hosted mybb forums (because unfortunately using the built in portals latest posts/threads function does not show thread prefixes (which a lot of people use for dictating whether or not a thread is Mature, Open, Private, etc.) and it also does not style a username with the color/styles attached to the usergroup) which we will fix in that section of this tutorial.

  3. Convert from JFH/IF to PHPBB

    If you've started a forum with either Jcink or InvisionFree and ever wanted to go self-hosted getting there can be a daunting task. One can't simply import the database into the new software and have things work. The newer database conversion tools (like MyBB's Merge) don't understand the older formats anymore. So that means a little extra work is needed to get from JFH/IF to another software. This guide shows the steps needed to do that.

  4. Default Avatar Fix (If Not Showing)

    For an unknown reason, sometimes when we try to place user avatars in particular areas, the default avatar (if they do not have one) does not show! I'll explain here a little HTML (image scroll tag with javascript) fix that will solve all your problems. Usually this problem will occur while putting the image in the header area or somewhere else. If you are having this problem on posts or profiles, this solution may work as well you'll just need to play around with the variable used for the users avatar.

  5. Inline Moderation/Multi-Quote Issues (After 02/10/2017)

    After an update on Icyboards (I believe around 02/10/2017), it seems that a few of Icyboard hosted forums are having some issues with inline moderation (as well as a few other things such as multiquote).

     

    There is a possible quick fix/solution to this issue and I would like to address it here, have no fear this will almost certainly fix your issues, especially if they just started happening out of the blue and you haven't touched anything in the coding.

  10. Combating Spam in MyBB

    If you have a MyBB forum then you likely have at some point had to deal with spam. Most admins do inevitably have to cross this bridge. So, with that in mind, this guide will attempt to show you some of the most common ways to handle spam and what I feel are the most effective ways to manage spam and keep your forum clean. Some updated information can be found in Kit the Human's guide found here.
