Re: This is Only One Quote

Just thought I'd mention an issue (also mentioned a page or two back, but with a less than appealing solution...) If somebody quotes an image that contains 'img' in the url (For example, http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/6931/example.gif has two occurances of 'img') they will be replaced by 'url' w...

phpBB installation: Writing to config.php - read only?

Hi. I was just wondering how phpBB manages to get around file write permissions in shared hosts when writing DB information to config.php. I see there is a @umask(0111); in there, but in my own code that never seems to work. Could someone enlighten me how this circumvents write restrictions when saf...

Hello, I have written a barebones website system and have integrated the phpBB2 board system with it (Only small modifications). I am interested in selling this package, however I want to check the legality regarding the inclusion of phpBB in the script. Is there any issue with this? I am obviously ...

Re: Need a barebones .php file in which to build an addon mod.

Excellent!

I noticed this is from late 2004. Can anyone verify if it is still secure?

Regardless I am going to have a poke around. This is very interesting! Thanks for helping with the search, battye. I didn't think to search for "blank page template" :)

Need a barebones .php file in which to build an addon mod.

Hi guys, I am wanting to create an addon for my forum which will require some SQL queries and checking some other stuff. Does anyone have a sort of barebones .php file with all the basics required for a new feature? (eg. parsing a basic template et cetera). I tried chopping the guts out of profile.p...

Re: Scrape topics from another site, post w/ correct U.names on

My comment - "The legal side is not an issue" should have served to snub out any legal discussion. I've been through and gotten over the whole ethical scraping deal. With that said, my board is somewhat protected under another law and my intentions are not to gain anything from this. It is a user-ru...

Re: Scrape topics from another site, post w/ correct U.names on

The legal side is not an issue.

Do you have any tips with regards to inserting the data into posts with correct usernames as I've mentioned above? I'm not having any trouble with scraping, just trying to get my head around inserting them as phpBB posts.

Scrape topics from another site, post w/ correct U.names on

Hello, I'm looking to make a scraper that will allow a user to enter a URL to a specific topic page on another forum. The scraper will then pull an array of usernames in that topic and the associated posts they made. My question is, would it be possible to sort of post this array into my phpBB forum...

Sidebar video player, like vod:pod?

I was perusing the internet and came across a blog with an interesting sidebar. It contained several video thumbnails, which, when clicked, would cause a javascript window to become visible and begin playing the video. I then deduced they were using the "VodPod" service. Check here for an example: h...

Re: [BETA] BoardTracker Advanced Topic Tags Mod - v1.9.0

Hmm, I just noticed you are a BoardTracker representative :P Ok, I see how BoardTracker may be valuable for those that want to search external sites too, but what about people who just want to search up their own site for specific tags, as in Wordpress or similar? In this case the engine would only ...

Re: [BETA] BoardTracker Advanced Topic Tags Mod - v1.9.0

WOW Someone heard me... I was bugging you all for a release like this, with proper tag searching. Thanks! Edit: Oh... I just noticed you still depend on BoardTracker. Is that really necessary? Why not just run tag searches through a PHP search function? From a webmaster perspective I feel dependenci...

Re: Tags

That is good mircesco, definitely heading in the right direction. I have been looking in search.php to try and find a way to make it bring back only topics with that exact tag, not just that word in the topic. Haven't had much luck yet but I have chopped out a lot of the GET / POST stuff so you simp...

Re: Tags

I am also interested in this. The tagging link is interesting but it depends on an external site for "search results" when clicking on a tag. I think it should instead use the normal phpBB search function and bring back topics with the same tag, if a user clicks a tag link.... If I were skilled enou...

Topic categories mod? eg. tag thread with [sports] or [news]

Some sites offer users the ability to make a category for their posts, eg [sports] or [news]... I am wondering if anyone is working on a MOD that allows users to choose a category for their topic, which it is then 'tagged' as, so users can tell at a glance what it is about and also click an option o...
