Re: Ignore a topic

Re: the request for an option to ignore an entire subforum...what I did on my forum was to set up open user groups, each of which is set for "No Access" for a specific subforum. Users can join any such open user group. For example, to set up an option to "ignore" the "Extension Requests" subforum, I...

I do not recommend this.

Respectfully, what others have advised you about making your forum interesting and doing the work necessary to convince people to join your forum, is the best thing to do.

Re: Aliens, UFOs, and the paranormal

Used to be interested in it when I was a kid. Then I became interested in science and that was far better.

Re: [3.2] Fake User

You could use the Feed Post bot to retrieve and post content automatically. You would need to create a user account which you would then assign as the "Feed User ID". That would be a "fake user". You could create several user accounts and assign each to a separate RSS feed. https://www.phpbb.com/cus...

Re: Ignore a topic

FWIW, I've uploaded a ZIP file with incomplete code I had been working on to hide topics posted by foes. What I really wanted to do was to have a selection button for each topic in the viewforum view, so that the use could add the topic to a list, which I believe was how that older Hide Topics mod w...

Re: Ignore a topic

If this helps, a little thing I developed that hides posts by people on a user's "Foes" list. Definitely not the same as being able to ignore a topic--an option I'd like to have as well--just haven't the time to devote to trying to code it. https://github.com/jimdominic/phpbb-hide-foes Please note t...

SQL injection question

I am seeing this type of thing in my server logs over the past few weeks. Any suggestions on how to block and/or prevent such attempts from succeeding appreciated. Most of these get a 403 in return, but some of them return a 200 code which concerns me. GET /search.php?search_id=%28SELECT%20%28CASE%2...

Re: Calls to s9e.github.io

Thanks. I'll give that a try. I do prefer to have control over what's being delivered wherever possible.

Calls to s9e.github.io

I understand that the 3.2.x system uses the s9e URL formatter...what I don't understand and am I bit concerned about is that it requires a call to s9e.github.io to generate an iframe to do that. For example: <iframe data-s9e-mediaembed="twitter" allowfullscreen="" onload="var a=Math.random();window....

User posted base64 of malware

So a user who has a case of ransomware on their machine decided to post the email that infected their system, along with the base64 encoding of the payload. I deleted the post on the grounds that posting the base64 violated rules against posting malware and/or viruses. Was I being overzealous or was...

Re: Prevent user from replying if theirs is the last post

Thank you. I knew something like what I was asking for existed, just couldn't manage to search for it properly. That mod is exactly what I needed and it's working great.

Prevent user from replying if theirs is the last post

Looking for a way to prevent a user from replying to a topic if theirs is the last post in the topic, independent of the flood limit. Would be awesome if that was a permission.

Re: Hide topics by foes

FWIW, I have successfully added an option to the user control panel to completely (well, almost completely...can't hide quotes of foes) hide posts by foes, and have successfully implemented it in templates, so that much works anyway. Hiding topics by foes seems a bit more strenuous coding than I car...

Re: Hide topics by foes

Okay...assuming I start coding in functions_display.php, viewforum.php, and common.php, and let's throw in ucp.php and all the related template files, where do I begin? Do I flag the topic as, say, 'TOPIC_IGNORED' after previously identifying the topic author as a user who is listed in the viewer's ...
