I'm pretty new to this, so please bear with me. I just put together a website on my own, and I'm trying to add scripts and programs to make it more accessible to those who are welcome, and less to those who are not (spammers and trouble makers).
I'm looking to add a phpbb discussion board in the next week, but what I'd really like to do is the following:
I'd like to have a general information page for visitors, but require a login for those wanting to delve deeper (discussion board, personal pages, etc.) Kind of like the one here, but allowing me to put in more info)
I want to know who has come on the page(s), not just the ISP(?), but the email address (which may not be possible, but wanted to see.
A discussion board that would automatically show on the front page what the newest question is in the discussion room, still requiring the the person to sign up and login before getting into that area.
Are there scripts for this? Will the phpbb do any of this?
Thanks for listening,
