Quick Change To Make Work with Clean phpBB 2.0.19 Install

As noted earlier in the thread, phpBB 2.0.19 introduces a few changes that break this MOD if you follow the instructions to the letter -- like EasyMOD does. Since I like EasyMOD, here is an updated MOD that should correct the problems: ############################################################## #...

Haven't thought of talking to the host...I can certainly try that. I would think that it's not a great idea to be sending PHP session IDs from one domain (i.e. my forums) to another, anyway...it could be "hostile" and somehow hijack the session, right? Oh, well...I'll play around a bit maybe. Thanks.

Yes, I've got that--the MOD works OK for linking to the phpMyAdmin from my provider (Dreamhost), but they use a custom control panel package (i.e. not cPanel), which I guess uses the "sid" variable, or at least is coded to reject a connection if they see a variable in the URL that they don't underst...

Needs Update for phpBB 2.0.10

Just installed the MOD today, after needing to make a quick update for compliance with the 2.0.10 codebase. Someone mentioned earlier that changes were made in 2.0.8 for better security; apparently, there were some additional changes. Replace this part of the MOD # #-----[ FIND ]--------------------...

Not Very Useful for Me...

Unfortunately, this isn't very useful for me since phpBB keeps adding the SID (session ID) variables to every link you enter in the file. Thus, it works OK for getting into my phpMyAdmin, but it breaks the login for my web host's custom control panel. Is there any way to prevent phpBB from appending...

Yes, I Know...

Yes, I know about that post...it contains the _patches_ that I just can't seem to get right for some reason...multiple tries all end up with a parse error. That's why I was hoping someone could give me a full file containing the fixes from an otherwise "virgin" 2.0.3 viewtopics.php file... BTW, I th...

HIGHLIGHTING SECURITY - Can someone send me a patched file??

Greetings... After multiple tries, I've been unable to successfully include the fix posted here for the security vulnerability in the highlighting code. I'd been hoping that an "official" fix would be forthcoming from the phpBB team, but it's been nearly a month and there's nothing. I'm leery of usi...

Why Two Sets of bbCode?

Dessimat0r, the reason the bbcode.php file isn't used (YET, i have to ask Neil, but, i'll probably help with the fork as it works better then my original code) because, there is a problem using the phpBB 2 templating system outside of phpBB 2. Yep, I ran smack into the same problem that others (inc...

[PRE-RELEASE] Fixes to News MOD

Howdy, all... Based on the code above, I've created a code fork of the News MOD that I call News+. It fixes the similes problem, includes language files from templates to fully parse bbCode, and removes all hard-coded configuration from the code. Please download the MOD from my forums, since this bo...

Gallery vice Other Systems

Good points...and I agree that choice is certainly good. I know the Gallery team is working on Gallery 2 (G2) which is at least six months away, but it will likely address some of the current weaknesses (i.e. database-backed, multi-language, more graphics engine choices, etc.). I guess all of this p...

I have the following requests for phpBB2 MODs: Headlines I think folks were working on this before, but I can't find it anymore...what I'd like to do is set up one Category that would hold news items (Subject = Headline, Body = News) in multiple forums. The key feature here would be a concise displa...

This Already Exists...

I'd recommend looking at the existing Gallery photo system ( gallery.sourceforge.net ) and the mod that integrates it with the phpBB permissions system ( http://www.snailsource.com/files/ ). Gallery is a great system--and will likely just keep getting better--and the integration MOD is pretty good, ...
