Re: [3.3][RC] Selective mass emails 1.0.10

Version 1.0.10 is available. The review team found one minor issue so I expect it will be released after passing a new review.

The only change of note is that the jQueryUI date control now allows you to change the month as well as the year.

See the first post for links to get the newest version.

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.10

This is not an issue with the extension, but how HTML works. If you want to add options to a dropdown select list, you hold down CTRL (CMD on a Mac). This retains the existing list while allowing you to selectively add or remove others. Granted, a lot of browser users don't understand this is a feat...

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.10

You can change it at any time. However, your only option is to either deny a set of countries or allow only a set of countries.

Re: ACP and showing private message text

I don't see a problem adding a switch that allows an admin to see or not see private message text.

That being said, if the Akismet service is correct it should only show PMs that contain likely spam.

The interface I envision needs to have a way to mark spam that is ham.

Re: ACP and showing private message text

I agree and I'm hoping one of them will chime in.

Re: ACP and showing private message text

There is already an extension that checks posts against the Akismet service. Its author didn't want to add this feature so I thought I'd write an extension to clean up old spam in the database. I have clients with this problem and really old spam is hard to remove using any automated tools. There wa...

ACP and showing private message text

I got the impression that extensions that show the administrator private messages sent to or received by others and not to the administrator were frowned upon, even though the text can be seen in the database in its marked up form. I'm working on a spam remover extension that uses the Akismet web se...

Can't login to Wiki

It used to be that if I was logged into the forums here on phpbb.com I was logged into the Wiki too. When I am in the Wiki and click on the login link at the top right corner of the page it takes me to the forums where I am already logged in. In short, I can't find a way to edit a page in the Wiki. ...

Re: Unlocking crons

I hope to test this tomorrow. I'm guessing the trim function is throwing off the try/catch logic.

Re: Unlocking crons

Thanks for the suggestion. Maybe I should instead ask about how to fix what is failing, and after a lot of testing it's not related to SMTP. I have a class html_messenger that extends the messenger class. You can see it here: https://github.com/MarkDHamill/digests/blob/master/includes/html_messenger...

Re: Unlocking crons

The cron got locked again. I have added debug code to my html_messenger.php program to see if I can figure out where it is failing. I've also unlocked the cron again. Your email package size is 0 and you are set to use SMTP. Since a simple test email went out fine, my guess is something about sendin...

Unlocking crons

It looks like my digests extension can occasionally cause a cron lock if emailing a digests fails for any reason. Is there a phpBB way to test for a cron lock and resolve a cron lock? I could set the config_value to 0 where config_name = 'cron_lock', but I assume the cache would need to be purged to...

Re: CORS policy violation installing extensions

After a couple of attempts that did not work, while I still get the error, the extensions seem to be installed. Not sure why.

Re: CORS policy violation installing extensions

Possibly. I didn't know that. It sounds like the server is configured to require cross domain scripting headers.

CORS policy violation installing extensions

Well, this is a new one. I upgraded a board from 3.0.14 to 3.3.0 and when installing any extension I get an AJAX error. Looking into it, I see (domain changed): Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'https://www.example.com/forums/adm/index.php?i=acp_extensions&sid=55705bffd99a8b3b24d2348369912273&mode=main&a...
