Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

The value show in Digest General settings for the day of the week should reflect value stored in the phpbb_config table. I am travelling so I can't tell you what the config_name is but it contains a value from 0 through 6 with 0 being Sunday. You can search for it with the pattern phpbbservices_dige...

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

As I mentioned a couple of posts back, the default day of the week for weekly digests to go out is set in the ACP, extensions tab, on the digest general settings page

Re: Embedding uploaded web-ready video formats

Thanks for the additional information. The W3C specification supports only three "web ready" video format. There are a number of variants of MP4, like M4V that seem to work. And some browsers don't seem to fully adhere to the specification.

Re: Embedding uploaded web-ready video formats

A correction. attachment.html will try to start Flash if you try to attach video content with a file extension in the phpBB Flash attachment group. By default, only .swf (Shockwave Flash) files are in this group. Flash is the only video format that phpBB attachments can handle that by default that c...

Re: Embedding uploaded web-ready video formats

A BBCode that embeds the <video> tag will work but you must supply a src and type attribute, as you showed in your reply. phpBB stores all uploads in a munged file name in the files folder. To render embedded attached content, phpBB turns it into a URL like this: ./download/file.php?id=37&view=1 so ...

I don't think this approach works for uploaded videos
Because?
Because uploaded videos are uploaded on the attachments tab and the attachments logic is responsible for marking up the image for display, either as an attachment or inline.

Re: Embedding uploaded web-ready video formats

actually you can just create a bbcode to do it. see here for example of it working: https://phpbbusers.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=37 bbcode: [vids]{URL}[/vids] html replacement: <video width="100%" max-width="640px" controls> <source src="{URL}" type="video/mp4"> <source src="{URL}" type="video/ogg"> ...

Embedding uploaded web-ready video formats

One of phpBB's little annoyances is that it won't play uploaded web-ready video formats like .mp4 natively in the browser. Instead, you need to have Quicktime installed and integrated into the browser, which lots of people won't bother to do and which adds latency as Quicktime boots up. I've had a n...

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

Something is obviously wrong. If it is set for Sunday it should go out on Sunday GMT. If you use phpBB's cron it's possible that it's not going out due to low board traffic. These fire up only when there is board traffic. I don't think this issue has anything to do with my code.

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

How can I check what day of the week a subscriber should get his digest? Thanks Daily digests are pretty self explanatory. Monthly digests are received on the first of the month, based on GMT. So you probably mean weekly digests. The default is to send them on Sundays GMT. This can be changed in th...

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

It sounds like your cron process is not working correctly. The testing process is in the first post. If the cron is not set up correctly, digests are sent when there is board traffic because that's how phpBB's cron process works. When using curl, you are essentially hitting the forum, pretending to ...

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

I'm curious about your email package size. If it is set to 20, twenty items will get emailed in a batch. If could include digests but it might be notification emails too. In this case the next 20 in the queue should go out the next time your system cron is run, in fifteen minutes based on how you ar...

Re: Removing all user forum permissions

phpBB has some peculiarities. One is that founders are not placed in the admin group, except when the board is first created. You can give anyone founder privileges but that doesn't mean they are in the admin group. They must be added explicitly. I think this forum (I am consulting) had an initial a...

Re: Removing all user forum permissions

Clicking on the admin members link I get: You are not allowed to manage this group. Yes, everyone is basically a registered user except bots. I know I could solve the issue in the database by adding me to the phpbb_user_group table manually. The larger issue though is that since there are lots of fo...

Re: Removing all user forum permissions

User forum permissions say something like "I grant to user X the forum permission to make posts in forum Y". This is different from saying "I grant to group X the forum permission to post in forum Y". In general I think it's a bad idea to grant user forum permissions. It leads to messed up permissio...
