Re: Changing copyright verbiage

I can't speak to that extension. The advantage to the CSS approach is that if you create a custom style you don't need to reapply your code changes when you update phpBB.

Re: What is the efficient way of combating spambots in phpBB 3.2.x?

There is the Cleantalk extension and associated service. You can find the extension in the extensions database, but it's quite old. What's nice is they introduced a spam firewall feature, but you need the new version of the extension to use it. It keeps most of this spam from even hitting your serve...

Re: Can phpBB be used on a mobile app?

This is not very specific. That said, there is a Tapatalk app that will work with phpBB. However, its extension is not approved and arguably dangerous as it seems to do most of the work inside its own mobiquo folder.

Re: Changing copyright verbiage

Here's a clever way to go, if you are not using multiple language packs. Do it through styling and the CSS ::after selector, adding it to your stylesheet.css probably, something like this:

Code: Select all

.footer-copyright::after {content: " -- Appended text"};

Re: $display_vars[] and page title

I tried 3Di's suggestions. They didn't hurt but didn't help either. So eventually I just sniffed around the phpBB code to find out what function is used to output the page header in the ACP. When I called it, the title appeared in the browser tab: adm_page_header($this->language->lang($this->page_ti...

Re: $display_vars[] and page title

Dang, you are good 3Di! But then you always are. Thanks for the education. I figured the names of the language files didn't matter because they were inside an extension.

$display_vars[] and page title

I don't believe in reinventing the wheel so I've been using the $display_vars approach used by most ACP modules to put fields on a page and to set configuration information. I don't understand why the <title> tag is blank when it should get filled in with something like "General settings". I noticed...

[RC] Selective mass emails 1.0.8 released

This version fixes the bug 3Di noticed (thanks) that kept the popup date picker from coming up. Found a few other things that were not quite correct that I fixed too: Made the default operator for unread private messages to greater than or equal to, as most likely if you are going to send emails bas...

[BETA] Filter by country - version 1.0.8 released

This is a back to the future edition: the VPN-only mode is gone because, well, it was based on a faulty assumption. Also gone temporarily due to the many language changes is the Dutch language pack. As requested, this version allows for IPs to be in many HTTP headers aside from REMOTE_ADDR . All are...

Re: [RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.7

I will search for both HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR and X_FORWARDED_FOR.

Re: [RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.7

Looks like the VPN only mode will have to be removed in the next release. I see no way to discern whether an IP belongs to a VPN without integrating a commercial database of such IPs, which is not allowed.

No, it's not just you. Apparently I missed a replace when I was asked to change the definition INCLUDED_SMEJS . Line 2 of /ext/phpbbservices/selectivemassemails/adm/style/event/acp_overall_footer_after.html is: {% if definition.INCLUDED_SMEJS %} and should be: {% if definition.INCLUDED_JQUERYUI1121J...

Re: [RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.7

Interesting. Hopefully that catches all the generic HTTP headers with possible IPs. So HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR is authoritative and X_FORWARDED_FOR is not? X_FORWARDED_FOR seems to be a thing:
