The link in the members list is not working correctly generic cialis.
Make sure the member's URL is valid . This means starting with 'http://' (without the ' '). As of version 2.0.x phpFanList prepends the url with http:// automatically, which should solve the problem . It it still good practice to check the URL, though .

phpFanList only shows the 2 first parts of your phpFanList version on your public pages anymore. This is for security reasons. The full version number can be found at the bottom right of your admin pages, where you'll see "powered by phpFanList v. x.x.x.". Where x.x.x. is your complete phpFanList version number you're running.
Do I need different databases for each fanlist / clique / list?
No! You can use the same database for different fanlists / cliques / list. Just specify a different table name in the config file.
What is the difference between cliques and fanlists?
You join a fanlist when you're fan of that someone / something, like an actor or a book. You join a clique if you have the same opinion, skill, filosophy,... as the clique owner. Generally you need to have a website for cliques and have to meet certain 'rules'. Fanlists are less strict and more 'open'.
I want to put the number of members on an other page.
You can include different calculated values on other pages: fanlisting's start date, number of members, number of members pending, the number of members pending an update, the date when you last updated your list, the date you last checked your fanlisting, the last members added, ...
Have a look at our How to build a fanlisting using phpFanList? page. There it's explained how you need to alter your pages to allow for those values to work.

Do I loose member IDs when declining members?
NO! You don't loose any member IDs if you decline an update or a join request. You only loose IDs when you delete an already existing member.
What are those quick updates?
The quick updates are for those phpFanList users that want the latest version, but don't like to download the complete package or want to have to change all the files they changed, again. The quick update .zip files contain only those files that were changed since the previous version and a quickupdate.php files that updates the database (file can be removed after updating). Note that not all versions have a quickupdate available (only when there are smaller changes).
Why 3 include directories?
The 'includes' directory is the normal include directory, the files in the 'g_includes' include directory can be reused for all your fanlistings. This doesn't matter if you only have one or two fanlists, but when you're a collective owner, this can save you quite some space, because you use the same files over and over again. Read here how. Since version 3.0.0. there is a third include directory: 'web_includes'. This works almost the same way as the 'g_includes' directory, only that it's for the admin only and that you need to specify a relative URL instead of a path.
I cannot approve someone if the e-mail address already exists
Make sure you have the 'allow double e-mails' setting in the admin set to yes.
Is phpFanList secure?
phpFanList has been tested on security. So far there has only been 1 security bug on january 5th 2006, which had a temporary fix 30 minutes after we were notified and a new fixed version within 5 days. So yes phpFanList is secure, much more so than our competition.
No e-mail address is valid.
When phpFanList keeps saying that your e-mail address is invalid when someone joins, even when it actually is valid, you need to set the advanced e-mail check to normal instead of advanced. This will use a local check instead of an advanced remote check.
If that option is not available, try setting the Mode option to Expert first and save the settings. The advanced e-mail check should then be available. If you like you can set the Mode option back to Beginner.
I can't login, what now?
There are 2 reasons why you might not be able to login. If you don't know the correct username and/or password anymore or if there is an other login problem. For the first reason there is a admin reset tool available. For the second reason there is a login help tool. If you still can't login, let us know, there might be something wrong.
