Re: [DEV] Facebook For PhpBB

I have installed this mod on a sandbox version of my forum for testing purposes. It's connected to the same database as my live forum, so all posts are synchronized, but any changes to the sandbox code won't affect the usability of the live forum. As others have noted, the Facebook login feature sti...

Re: Spiders & bots to add to phpBB

It would be cool if the Baidu spider could be added to the script, since it hangs around my forum almost 24/7.

Re: [RC-1] spam hammer: ends spam. period.

I actually have one minor issue. I have set the spam hammer to extreme mode, which supposedly deletes new users who try to create profiles. However, all the spam hammer does is warn them against creating a profile. Every time the hits submit, it warns him again. So the user is prevented from creatin...

Re: [Split From] Change hyperlink colors in Prosilver

I appreciate all the help I have received so far. Thanks to your suggestion to change my approach, I was able to solve 99% of my issues by realizing that I have been going about this all backwards for months. So I made the font color required for links on a light background the default and created c...

Re: [RC-1] spam hammer: ends spam. period.

I was able to fix the above problem by setting $load_values_from_db=true.

Everything seems to be in order now. :)

Re: [RC-1] spam hammer: ends spam. period.

The only niggling problem I am having with the Spam Hammer is that the minimum character per post filter is not working. I have it set to 73 per suggestion, but posts of any length can be submitted. This is true of both guests and new members on their first post. I have checked both the ACP and the ...

Re: [RC-1] spam hammer: ends spam. period.

I did, however, take the liberty of editing the error message in /includes/functions_link_filter.php to correct the typo and improve punctuation. I figure if we are going to scold users for not using English, we should probably express the error messages in standard English. ;) The new error message...

Re: [RC-1] spam hammer: ends spam. period.

I must be an utter dunderhead. I performed the SQL queries, I edited the files, I purged the cache, and I see absolutely no effect: no changes to my ACL, no blocking of profiles or signatures to new members, and no screening of "bad words." What could I possibly have done so glaringly wrong? I could...

Re: [Split From] Change hyperlink colors in Prosilver

No offense whatsoever taken. Believe me, if I can find a way to make all the hyperlinks look how I want them without editing the PHP, I will do that in a heartbeat! I would rather keep my contributions strictly to CSS and perhaps the occasional HTML edit. I am not looking to get the style approved, ...

Re: [Split From] Change hyperlink colors in Prosilver

That depends on the color scheme of your theme. The theme I designed, which is based off of ProSilver, has areas that are dark and other areas that are light. As a result, there needs to be different classes for the URLs to ensure they are always readable. On the areas with a dark background, I use ...

Re: [Split From] Change hyperlink colors in Prosilver

Well, I finally figured out how to edit the link colors on the redirect pages. I had to go into ucp.php and edit the <a > tags there. Because so much of the basic formatting is handled modularly in pieces scattered throughout various PHP and HTML files, not to mention JS scripts, phpBB is definitely...

Re: [Split From] Change hyperlink colors in Prosilver

Thank you very much for taking the time to assist me, but unfortunately, the code you provided doesn't get me any farther than I already am. For example, the relevant code section in memberlist_body.html: <h2>{MESSAGE_TITLE}</h2> <p>{MESSAGE_TEXT}</p> As you can see, the text for the page is being r...

Re: [Split From] Change hyperlink colors in Prosilver

I wanted to apologize for the tone of my previous post. Rereading it, I realized it must have come off extremely brusque and abrupt. I whipped that answer out in about half a minute as I was rushing back and forth between tasks, so I didn't take the time to add in some common courtesy. I really do a...

Re: [Split From] Change hyperlink colors in Prosilver

Yes, I know which codes those are in colours.css. As I said in my original post, I've already created classes within colours.css for changing links as necessary. However, some links on pages need to be changed but others do not (based on whether they are found on a light or dark background). My ques...
