Adding Ability to Hide IP Addresses from Moderators

<t>Currently, the lowest tier of Moderators on a board can see all IP addresses. In some cases, this may not matter to people, but in situations where there are possible user moderators who may take this information as an attempt to start arguments of "unfair" play this creates more headache than ne...

Re: Three features you would like to see in 3.3.

I am also in favor of adding 2FA as an optional option for administrators as an extra layer of protection.

Searching for a username with an underscore brings no results

One of my forum admins reported an issue to me that they couldn't find an account that was in the system. The username contained an underscore and resulted in No such account. However, if I ignore the underscore and search everything before the underscore, it shows there. Is there a bug in the admin...

Re: Slow searches on new Linode machine

Under the Resources Tab on Linode, there is a Documentation area. Make sure you've optimized MySQL. I believe there is a doc on there for that. Probably will need to tweak some config files to make it run the way you want.

Re: Replace User from External Script

Thank you very much. That little nudge gave me the right path towards getting this finished. Here's the code I have now that is working. I have included it here just in case others need it. function forum_group_chg($group_id, $new_member) { define('IN_PHPBB', true); global $db, $phpbb_dispatcher, $a...

Replace User from External Script

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this. I saw a few threads in the old 3.0.x forums in Modifications, but there isn't one for 3.1.x. I'm using PHPBB 3.1.10. If this is not the best location for this, can you advise where might be a better location? The goal of the script is to Remove a Use...

PHP 3.1 and external Session ID

I use software called AJAX chat which is linked into PHPBB. Prior to the upgrade to 3.1, it read the session variable without any issue. Now, it looks like it's picking up the correct login to the software, but the session or cookie is timing out. Can anyone help me with how PHPBB's Session or Cooki...

Re: Standard Moderator Permission Oddity

Thank you for everything on this. I have it installed on my board and everything is working as I was hoping it would.

I agree that the 5th case would be odd and would cause a can of worms.

Re: Standard Moderator Permission Oddity

While that would fix the issue for the future, that does not resolve the several years worth of users no longer here. Honestly, you should not be required to keep thousands of inactive users on your site to avoid this issue. It also means that you must ignore requests for accounts to be deleted whic...

Re: Standard Moderator Permission Oddity

That's correct. He used the edit button to change the screen name. To the general user base, they don't see the database or whether it was anonymous or not. They see the screen name. If I may give an example to try to get my point across. You posted a set of rules about a topic as a moderator. The p...

Re: Standard Moderator Permission Oddity

I'm not really sure why they are split that way. A moderator should be able to edit out things (aka swear words, rule violations, etc) without changing the poster's name. Yet, the second scenario allows them to do the second for a user who is no longer in the system. With that said, it leaves me wit...

Re: Standard Moderator Permission Oddity

I checked on the DB side and noticed it changed the Post Author to "1" (aka Anonymous). I would prefer that they would not be able to change the name of the Author. In theory, the permissions should prevent this. I have verified that the above code matched what is in the mcp_post.html When asking th...

Standard Moderator Permission Oddity

I currently have the Standard Moderator Permission set to NEVER allow them to change a post's author. However, one of the moderators on my forum was able to edit a post and change the author of the post under these conditions: 1) The original post author is no longer in the system 2) They change it ...

Custom Field Changes Usergroup

Is there a way to make it where when a user changes a custom profile they are moved to a usergroup? For example: Custom Field Dropbox: Group1, Group2 If Select Group1, then added to Group1 User group If Select Group2, then added to Group2 User group My reasoning behind this is that I would like to l...
