Re: Login gives captcha on first attempt

We've just started to see this on a forum I administer too. I considered the MOD above but decided it doesn't solve the problem. A log entry that says someone has gone over the login limit is no use to me unless the problem is self-inflicted user error. What I need logged are the password failures t...

Templates revert on dot update?

I am trying to hand over administrative responsibilities for a board to someone else. As prep, the board was converted from 2.0.23 to 3.0.6 a few months ago. As part of that process, I ditched almost all of the ~25 MODs that had been applied to 2.0.23. However, a few of the MODs were very simple cha...

Newly Registered Users group [3.0.6]

Please ignore (or if moderator, delete). Silly mistake discovered and fixed.

Re: Time estimate for a 2.0.x -> 3.0.x conversion

Thanks for the estimate, Kevin. I'm still a bit at sea. I got nowhere at bluehost so have been following the directions for an offline conversion found at http://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/offline-conversions/ with only partial success. The big problem is that the conversion script packs up intermitte...

Time estimate for a 2.0.x -> 3.0.x conversion

Well, I'll be darned if I can find anything that provides an estimate of the elapsed time required to convert the contents of a 2.0.x database to get a newly installed 3.0.x board going. I'd like to be able to tell my users about how long the board will be out of service, e.g. ten minutes or ten hou...

Re: Modifing for Anonymous in viewtopic.php

I am having a problem where the Mod calls for Modifying one section in viewtopic.php. I do not have a section preceded by if ( $poster_id != ANONYMOUS . I assume that a Mod applied before I took over Maintenance of the board modified this section. There are 2 possible areas in Viewtopic that start ...

Beats me. Never seen these MODs before. I took a quick look at the birthday mod and it looks to me like you'll need something significantly different if you want to scrub the birthday. The MOD includes these lines # #-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------ # 'EDITED_MESSAGE' =>...

I used kber's proposed solution for a while on my forum until I caught more than a few guests and search engines invoking viewonline.php all on their own. That solution also leaves a gaping hole in viewforum.php, which shows (at the top of a subSilver page) which members are looking at the forum. Th...

Sorry about not responding - I've been away. Really away. As in "often no computer access" away. I've looked at the email code and it's a rats nest. I'm afraid I will break something if I try to put ignore code in there. Re adding the ability to ignore users in places other than viewtopic ...

[BETA] Hide and Don't See

I administer a forum with about 1400 registered users. I've got MODs installed to keep guests from looking at user profiles and the memberlist. I wanted to restrict them from seeing who is online as well. Since I was doing that, I decided it wasn't exactly kosher for a hidden user, of which we have ...

In Olympus, the way to do this from the ACP is to go the System tab, click on Language Packs and then click on the (currently only one available) English(GB) pack. Then you can select ucp.php and edit TERMS_OF_USE_CONTENT to your heart's delight. The developers deserve a big pat on the back for maki...

mnp13, thank you for reporting the bug. It is now fixed and the fixed version is available for download. If you don't want to reinstall the MOD when a one character change to search.php will do the trick, find the line if ( $ignored_sql != '' ) $ignored_sql = 'AND poster_id NOT IN (' . substr($ignor...

That's not a simple thing to do. I guess the first question I would ask is, "Why are you letting guests post?" :lol:
