Re: Registering via sql

OK, then I need to know what you replaced lines 55-140 in login.php with. This is the standard file's lines: if( ( isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['login']) || isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['login']) ) && (!$userdata['session_logged_in'] || isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['admin'])) ) { $username = isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['userna...

Re: Registering via sql

Q : Are you sure the user name is being saved the same way in your script as phpBB uses? A : Yes it is. The name I insert via SQL request is exactly the same as the one I see when I look in the database afterward. But I do precise that I made modifications in the login.php in order to log with the ...

Re: [2.0.19] Logo to Admin CP

That IS the entire file. It's a text file, explaining how to make the changes. Nothing special to it. The problem is that you can't rely upon Windows to open it as a text file, because ".MOD" is used for some programs as a music list. Right click on the file, select "Open with", and select NotePad, ...

Re: Where is ""{TOTAL_USERS_ONLINE}" defined?

And those aren't "tables", they are variables that are calculated, and made available to the template engine for display. You will not find any table in which their values are stored; they're calculated as each page is displayed.

Re: General Error

Database problem. The knowledge base has an article on this, and a script that can do it when your hosting doesn't include utilities like phpmyadmin. Link is the first one in my signature. Generally speaking, it's a problem with "a glitch". Something prevented the SQL server from saving some data, a...

You will probably find out it works just fine, if you delete the "snow" add-in from the pages.

Re: Registering via sql

The problem is difficult to diagnose, because we do not have access to your system. The error is rather ambiguous, because each possibility (inactive user name, incorrect user name, or incorrect password)has different causes and cures. Are you sure the user name is being saved the same way in your s...

Re: New registrations coming in as admin and admin as New mwembe

As "rank" admin, or with admin powers? If it's just their rank, you do not have "sysadmin" set as a "special" rank. Since it has its required number of messages set to zero, anyone can have that rank. But rank does not grant privileges. If the link to the admin control panel does NOT appear for new ...

Re: Simple if/then statement not showing.

What you're asking is basic PHP coding, not phpBB-specific. Variables on the URL are part of the $_GET array, variables received via a POST action are part of the $_POST array. phpBB does some trickery to make them accessible in certain internal arrays, after making them "safe" (removing potential a...

Re: How can I let visitors comment?

When they comment on a weblog like that, they're actually registering... it's just not as thorough as the phpBB registration. There are MODs to reduce the amount of questions asked to register. There are also MODs to make them solve something before posting anonymously. Allowing guest posting in gen...

Re: error in posting :( someone helps me ?? >_<

This is one of the big reasons you want to move to phpBB v3 - much better support for UTF-8 languages. What is the database version? If it is MySQL 4.1 or later, it will rigidly enforce the character encoding standards, and give you errors like this unless the tables are created with UTF-8 encoding....

Re: Registering via sql

Creating a user has several steps, the most important of which are creating the entry in the users table (did you remember to encode the password using the MD5 algorithm before saving it?), and creating an entry for that user in the users_group table. The second part affects their ability to obtain ...

Re: Parse error?

You have an error in one of your template files, probably introduced by a MOD installation. Generally, this error comes about where there is a mis-match in the nesting of BEGIN and END tags in the .tpl files.
