Re: [Discuss] Preventing Spam in phpBB3

Hi there everyone, phpBB 3.0.11 with Anti Spam ACP installed I followed this step in the sticky: Blocking UTC-12 Registrations Though generally hesitant to suggest specific MODs or changes, this particular change has proven to be mostly effective against the current generation of spambots. The below...

post rating and weighting mod?

Hi there everyone! I'm hoping for find a mod that will handle posts much in the same way that you see in some comment systems today, like Youtube for instance. If enough people down-vote a post, it disappears. If enough people rate it highly, it reflects that as well. I've found a few "thanks" mods,...

Re: How does phpbb 3 determine unread posts in a thread?

The issue was with me not properly applying the forum_tracks. It seems to be working as it should now.

Thanks for your help!

Re: How does phpbb 3 determine unread posts in a thread?

Just to be clear, when I view the thread's category in the forum system, it shows as read, so I'm not trying to say that the forum system is working incorrectly. It's definitely on my end, but I need to figure out why the forum system knows I've read that thread since it's last update when my lastma...

Re: How does phpbb 3 determine unread posts in a thread?

Thanks very much for your help, brf. Unfortunately, I'm still having an issue. After clearing the forums, New posts were posted. They show up. However, when I view a thread, it's not creating an entry even when the posts were made after I marked the forum as read. In fact, I posted in one and it now...

Re: How does phpbb 3 determine unread posts in a thread?

Well, it seems that I spoke too soon. Everything was working fine until I clicked the "Mark forums read" link. Now, all show as unread. I looked in the database and it seems clicking that link deleted all entries with my uid in forums_track and topics_track. The result is that all topics and forums ...

Re: How might I use the fuzzy date function?

Found this in the viewtopic.php:

Code: Select all

$user->format_date($row['post_time'], false, ($view == 'print') ? true : false)
Sorry for the false alarm!

How might I use the fuzzy date function?

Hi there everyone! I've got a latest topics block that is on an external page using phpbb3's session integration. In the forum, the dates are set to be fuzzy, i.e.: Today, 4:30 pm. I would like the latest posts block to format the time that way as well. Could someone point me in the proper direction...

How does phpbb 3 determine unread posts in a thread?

Hi there everyone! I've got an unread posts block on an external page that uses phpbb 3 session integration. The block lacks unread/read post icons and I'd like to add them. I'm just not sure how phpbb 3 handles this. Could someone give me a helping push with maybe with relevant session variables an...

Re: Special characters not showing correctly in custom pages

The characters show properly if you change the character encoding to ISO-8859-1. Try changing the encoding in the header and see if that works for you. Hehe, thanks very much for that but while it fixed the ß in the latest post block, it broke it in the logout link at the top(which you don't see un...

Re: Special characters not showing correctly in custom pages

Thank you very much for your help. Looking at the block, it looks like first poster is being drawn from the "first_poster_name" and the last poster is being retrieved from the user table with an id. Here's the block, in case it will help: <?php // How Many Topics you want to display? if(ISSET($_GET[...

Special characters not showing correctly in custom pages

Hi there everyone, I followed the guide here on phpbb3 session integration and it's working swimmingly aside from one foible; special characters aren't showing correctly on the custom pages. If you look here , you can see that ßubble(the poster's name) shows correctly. On the front page's latest pos...
