Hi,

maybe for short-therm measures (now that the forums is on phpBB3.1) the following extensions could be enabled:

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... emplate_4/
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... ar_topics/

This could at least help people providing the mandatory infos in their initial post (as nearly no one are reading the support forum rules where this is asked) and show similar topics after they posted their question.

Enabled, see viewtopic.php?f=36&t=32709 for some examples. The issue template should appear soon as well.

Great, thanks!!!

Suggestion for the issue template beside the obvious stuff like versions:

- Have you checked the FAQ forums?

I will have a look at it later today.
ownCloud is not only about files. There is so much more. Explore the apps to extend your ownCloud.

This module only works for logged in users. Is this on purpose?

Looks like. Could not find any setting to change behaviour.

Just found topic regarding anonymous use of similar topics.
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... pic/134461

Do we want to enable similar topics for non-logged in users?
Try to see a bad side (not sure if there is one).

Got a response, but not an answer.
See https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... 01#p475901

Should I enable it for guests?

I don't see a reason not to do it. If it helps people solving their issue even without the necessity to register...
