Re: SQL error editing a post

That appears to be a problem with the Edit Log extension, switch the extension off and see if it fixes the problem?

Re: PHP Session Variables and isset

Unfortunately that refresh detect script doesn't work with some mobile phone browsers. I also had a problem with the flag method but resolved it by putting another pure php [no output so header() can redirect to main] program in the loop between the module and the main program to process the $_POST,...

Re: HTTP ERROR 500 after upgrading to 3.3 & PHP 7.2

I hit a 500 error the other day, by fluke I found it had come about during an SSL certificate change and I couldn't find any other possible cause, I'd left it overnight thinking it would clear itself but it didn't. Clearing the browser cookies, history etc cleared the error.

Re: PHP Session Variables and isset

Thanks for the tidy suggestion, I gave up with the session variable as it was getting too messy, there are about ten other modules feeding in and each one would have to unset the session variable. I borrowed an example from somewhere that detects a refresh, I don't know how it works which I'm not to...

Re: PHP Session Variables and isset

Yes, my snippet was wrong, I tried to reverse all the logic to make a simpler demo of the problem I was having - and failed. What I am trying to do is prevent a section of code being run again if the browser is refreshed, so I'm using a session variable as a flag, being stored on the server that sho...

Re: PHP Session Variables and isset

I am sure there are those here that can help you with this ( I am unfortunately not one of them ). However, I am curious why you would not ask about this at a php support board instead. Its a good question and there are two parts to the answer:- I hardly ever need help with php, I struggle a lot at...

PHP Session Variables and isset

Nothing to do with phpBB but I'm trying to get this to work. unset($_SESSION['operation']); if (!isset($_SESSION['operation'])) { echo "you shouldn't see this"; } the !isset doesn't appear to be working? Any idea why and any way round it? EDIT: using php 7.2.1 EDIT: The code snippet was wr...

Re: Will importing 170,000 posts slow down overall performance of phpBB?

The subject and message body isn't too bad to get in, where I would struggle more is creating the users, the dates, any internal links and (not knowing yahoo groups) the forum structure. There's probably more, I only import new topics in my application but topic replies are roughly the same using th...

I just thought of something else as the article you linked mention it starting in Britain. In parliament, viewing the house from the speakers position labour sits on the left and the conservatives sit on the right.
The ruling government(party) sits on the right of the speaker.

Re: IFTTT Tweet Limit

How did you get on with trying the Twitter API? Not well at all, I write php but only procedural, all the examples etc were object. Twitters own documentation seems overly complicated for such a trivial function, my eyes glaze over after about 5 minutes, their terminology is a bit weird as well for...

Re: Upgrading from version 3.0.2

The first thing you need to look at is whether your forum is using any MODS, from 3.1 upwards MODS are no longer supported, extensions are used instead.

That is commonly the reason that forums are still at 3.0.x

If the forum uses a custom style then that may not be supported any longer either.

Re: Adblock detector

I'd assume an adblocker check would have to check something is displayed not just loaded?

I have no idea why sites with advertising don't cache adverts instead of linking, this would fool adblockers and probably improve user experience considerably.

Re: how to create a file sitemap

What has your robots.txt to do with a sitemap? the robots.txt file must be present on the root of your forum to know if your forum is operated by the google robot. the site map gives you and organizes a content structure for your forum on search engines. If robots.txt is absent, google will assume ...
