Re: [2.0.6] RSS Content Syndicator

iiaforummaster: There is some code that checks if the forum permissions for "View" (in advanced mode) are set to "ALL". If so, then the forum content will show up in the rss feed. If you set view for any forum to "REG", PRIVATE, MOD, or ADMIN then RSS Content Syndicator will not show content from th...

Re: Weird posting problem on my forums with "bcc:" in post text

Steve,

Thank you very much. That is indeed the problem. I verified this by creating a new test page outside of PHPBB with a text area, and submitted the text bcc: and the server did indeed convert it to (anti-spam-bcc:).

Thanks,
KyferEz

Re: ALL ANTI-SPAMS MODS NEED THIS - HAVE not found this

Would you mind then to share all of this to us? The MODs in Development Forum is waiting for you I think, thank you. ;) I would love to post it in the MOD database, however, I know that spammers do troll these forums looking for new anti-spam mods so that they can reverse-engineer them and try and ...

Weird posting problem on my forums with "bcc:" in post text

Ok, this has recently shown up on my forums. It obviously is something that has been there a while, but just now has shown up, as nothing has been changed on my forums in months. If anyone types bcc: or content-type: or mime-version: in a post or PM, it gets converted to "(anti-spam-bcc:)" or "(anti...

Re: ALL ANTI-SPAMS MODS NEED THIS - HAVE not found this

I have a MOD that does what you ask (almost exactly), and works excellently against spammers registering: 100% success rate against spam-bot registration for the past year on 2 separate forums. If you want it, you have to prove to me you are the admin of a legit (non-spammer) board, and I'll give yo...

Ok. I think I've figured this out, at least to do what I need. If you wish to use regular old sessions within PHPBB2 to temporarily store your own data, you can, however, they will be for your own stuff. Don't expect to be able to get at any of PHPBB2's session data by starting a session - it don't ...

Just for my peace of mind, I attempted to use session_register in phpbb2 on 2 different forums of mine. One works just perfectly. The other never registers the session! Both forums are setup the same, on the same hosts (but with different domains). ???????? I've tried it over and over and over. One ...

I don't want to store it in the users table and waste space - the data is only valid for the current session, and doesn't need to be saved beyond that. phpBB does not use any of the "standard" session functions. If you want the data to be available, it needs to be in the sessions table or - as sugge...

Is that the only way??? That seems overly complicated. Also, from what I see, PHPBB2 doesn't store all those session variables in the database. They are kept in $userdata. However, I'd prefer not to mess with that, and instead would like to just store a new var in the current session, like the code ...

Adding Session variables

Ok. I am attempting to change my forums some, and am having some trouble figuring out how phpbb deals with the sessions. Here's what I am trying to do: 1) I have 2 vars that contain an alphanumeric strings. 2) I need to store those strings in the session data 3) I need to retrieve those strings from...

I have a multitude of mods on my forums. However, they do not yet always catch 100% of the spammers. They do catch *most* spam-bots, but it's nearly impossible to catch those spammers registering manually. They will register manually when they can't register using the bots, in an attempt to figure o...

And this is the sort of thing you can do when you have a spammer's real password: http://forum.drc.su/tired-of-faggots-ownage-time-vt3852.html Oh, and that guy had a better way - Just catch all passwords during registration BEFORE they have been MD5 hashed. Any registrations detected as a spammer ca...

You're kidding, right? You willingly joined a forum administrated by someone who is looking for a way to gather his members' passwords? I sure hope the password you signed up with is unique. I definitely wouldn't join a forum like that, and .. most people would agree with me. First, you shouldn't u...

Even with the password, you can't get any information outside of what's already in the profile. And no, there isn't a way to decrypt MD5. Yes, I can, depending upon the spammer. And, I didn't ask if MD5 could be decrypted. I asked if a MOD would REPLACE the MD5 hash with a reversible encryption. So...

and no, you cant. just knowing someone's password tells you nothing about them that you don't already know from other bits of information. also, the spammers are usually bots, they use a different username/password/IP for each time they register, and for each different board, etc, etc. luck, robert...
