Version 1.0.3-RC released

This version is essentially unchanged from the last version, except for one minor language string change. Since this is very simple, this is mainly about moving it through the process before submitting it for review. Please test it out and give me feedback. Download is on the first post.

Re: [BETA] Filter by country - version 1.0.3

What do people think about capturing more statistical information? I'm thinking that the phpbb_fbc_stats table could be expanded to capture the IP, page requested and user agent string of those restricted. In addition, the report could be expanded so the country name becomes a link and if you click ...

Re: Duplicate watched topics

Interesting. I may have found a bug in phpBB. I recreated the indexes on all the affected tables but I still had duplicates. I also changed the storage engine for these tables in the query from MyISAM to InnoDB. So I changed line 882 of /includes/ucp/ucp_main.php from: $sql = $db->sql_build_query('S...

Re: Duplicate watched topics

Part of the challenge is figuring out exactly which code is being executed. It may be I was looking in the wrong place because /includes/ucp/ucp_main.php appears to be it and results in a gaggle of code like this around like 882: SELECT t.*, f.forum_name, tt.mark_time, ft.mark_time AS forum_mark_tim...

Re: Duplicate watched topics

I also recreated the indexes for the topics_track and topics_watch tables, but that didn't solve the problem.

Duplicate watched topics

This is a puzzle. Since I'm being paid for this work I'm happy to donate the cost I bill the client for my time solving this to the phpBB group. (Although I couldn't find a way to donate last time I tried. Maybe I buy a bunch of Bertie bears?) Users are getting duplicate watched topics on the manage...

Re: [BETA] Filter by country - version 1.0.3

One thing I could do on your issue is to check the return value of rmdir and unlink. If they can't delete files and folders, some action should be taken. I think that was the case: the permissions weren't there so it couldn't complete the tasks.

Re: [BETA] Filter by country - version 1.0.3

I'm guessing it's an issue updating your database. Make sure the permission is the /store and the /store/phpbbservice/filterbycountry folders are 777. You can try just deleting the folder. It should get recreated.

Re: [BETA] Filter by country - version 1.0.2

Okay, looking at this again as I have the time after two big upgrade projects. I think I figured out a way around the dual logging and stat collection issue on a page. Using cookies wasn't working but then I figured a better approach was to use static arrays and keep a running tally of IPs already l...

Re: event folder

This suggestion is to make phpBB more usable to board administrators. There are lots of them out there. Basically they don't want to keep updating their stylesheets and templates manually as phpBB updates are released. Many of them have some basic skills like being able to edit a stylesheet or templ...

Re: event folder

Clearly it wasn't obvious to me that phpBB had this limitation, as it seemed logical that it should and custom styles already provides a level of insulation for custom styles through inheritance from a parent style. Most board owners probably aren't extension developers and it won't be obvious what ...

Re: event folder

It's a pretty common pattern for board owners to want to make little changes to templates. A custom style allows them to make style changes. I hope the developers of phpBB will allow users to create event folders in their template folders and have it hook into these template events by design. I will...
