Best way to handle long processes to avoid timeouts

I am working on a spam remover extension that uses the Akismet service. Since boards can vary in size from tiny to enormous, when searching for spam I need an interface similar to the one used on phpBB installations or conversions that gives progress dialog boxes, refreshes itself regularly and has ...

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.18

Thanks! Yes, the first two items in this array can be removed. Their presence though should not cause an error.

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.18

Fortunately, the requested functionality was easy to do. I'm wanting to get this into the approval queue, so I had a good reason to be hasty.

[3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.18 released

This version incorporates the suggestion that administrator should be able to redirect blocked requests to a static page. There is an interface in the ACP settings page for the extension for specifying this URL. Note that if you allow board logins from blocked countries, this redirect will not occur...

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.17

IP 127.0.0.1 is localhost and I added it so I could test on my local machine successfully. It may be that some sort of VPN is injecting this IP into one or more HTTP headers, in which case I need an option to allow or deny access to it.

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.17

So you want a feature if the traffic is blocked to send to another page?

Since you have so many blocked countries, it might be easier/better to allow in only certain countries.

Filter by country - version 1.0.17 released

Version 1.0.17 is available. Version 1.0.16 survived an extension team review in August and I finally got around to making a new version. The extension was denied but the issues were quite minor. You can see a list of changes from version 1.0.16 here . See the first post for download links. Summary ...

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.16

I'm guessing you have a busy board because this is triggered by trying to log more than one access for a country for a given second. That's a test case I didn't consider. But this should fix it. In /ext/phpbbservices/filterbycountry/event/main_listener.php at line 481 find: if (isset($insert_sql_ary...

Re: Pagination controls on index

My mistake. This is a feature of the recent topics extension which can appear on the index.

Pagination controls on index

Is there a control that determines whether pagination links appear for a forum on the index? It must be somewhere but I can't seem to find it, and if there's a permission I can't seem to find that either.

Re: Failed upgrade from 3.2 to 3.3

Any extensions would be in the /ext folder. The only one that comes by default is Viglink in /ext/phpbb/viglink. If there are other extensions there please list them. The format is /ext/vendor/name so you have to dig two levels deep. Some sort of TWIG error is occurring. TWIG is the template engine ...

Re: Failed upgrade from 3.2 to 3.3

During upgrades it's a good idea to disable extensions. I don't know if you did this before the upgrade but if not it can be done via SQL and a utility like phpMyAdmin if you are in your board's database with SQL like this (change the phpbb_ if necessary based on what's in your config.php file): upd...

Re: Failed upgrade from 3.2 to 3.3

If the PHP version is a possible reason, it's easy enough to write a little script to show PHP's configuration:

Code: Select all

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Are there lines before this? There is usually a line that shows what program blew up and on what line. BlueHost found this : As per the logs, the issue is with the code in line # 312 in the file Definition.php. I was hoping for the phpBB program name and line number that failed, which won't be a pr...
