    Hi Sadain
    as far as i know you can't in phpBB
    but with a bit of tweeking to the script you can rediret the link to a page that say's that the members list has been disabled.
    but remember the link path so you can see it as the admin.

    Check phpbb's website, there is probably a modification you can install to do this

    Don't forget to copy all the files before you edit them.

    For me, I just create a new folder in my documents area and download the files needing to be edited from my forum into that. Then, I make a copy of each one so if I screw up an edit, I have the original still.

    Backing up the database is a good idea, but it won't help you if you make a mistake, that's why copies of the files are critical.

    I'm not that good with editing files, I thought I could upload the zip file to a folder in File Manger and just exstract the file contents to a folder in phpbb and install it Ilooked at the forum link you post but, I couldn't find any explanation on how to install it.


    Thanx

    That makes it easy then, doesn't it? LOL For future reference, the instructions are always included with the MOD download and make it pretty easy to make the necessary changes.

    I've done this stuff plenty of times, as have several others, so just give us a shout if you ever run into a problem.
