Forgive me if I missed this but it looks like this has to be put at the root level. I tried sticking it in an upper level password protected directory and it doesn't work but generates errors regarding config.php and sessions. Wouldn't it make sense to have it work in a different directory so it can...

Wow, this sounds familiar. They kicked me out -- said their more expensive plan wouldn't even be adequate (did give a refund for unused months). I have maybe the same number of concurrent users and registered users but a larger database. More active members, fewer guests. I wish you luck. I ended up...

You can also create a separate admin panel that contains the config file. Password protect it from cpanel. Mirror all the admin files in the new folder. Access the hidden folder by logging into the standard admin panel (you get a session tag) and changing the folder address in the browser window. Th...

I can't view any ips when I log on the moderator link to view ips. Very frustrating. Don't know if I did anything wrong (had to rebuild my board with old hacks recently).

In includes/functions_posts.php find: if ($mode == 'newtopic' || $mode == 'reply' || $mode == 'editpost') and change it to: if ($mode == 'newtopic' || $mode == 'reply') I also changed a line nearby below from: if ( $mode == 'editpost' ) to else if ( $mode == 'editpost' ) I don't know if this second ...

Chris Jay, you might also choose to completely remove the member list. There's also a hack that requires a person to be logged in before they can view a profile (which has an email). The "email via board", as pointed out, prevents direct viewing of the address.

Here are a couple other simple ideas for people who like to fiddle with their board (though the hack cited takes care of things fine): 1) edit the signup page to restrict what is entered when you join. i.e. just have people sign up with name, password, and email. You accomplish this buy putting <!--...

I have a similar but different problem. I want new users to have no choices but old users to remain hidden if that's what they wanted. After making various changes on the profile update page, new users are not hidden. HOWEVER, the downside is that if an old hidden member edits his profile, he is not...

Out of curiousity, when building the wordmatch table, is there any design or performance reason why a check could not be made of a word in a new or edited post to see if it is a common word (with a word_common value of 1 in the wordlist table) before creating a new entry in the wordmatch table?

Reducing the size of the Wordmatch table

Two tables are built for the standard search function. phpbb_search_wordlist word_id word_text word_common phpbb_search_wordmatch word_id post_id title_match A value of 0 is assigned word_common automatically when a new word is added to the wordlist table. When a search is performed, a check is made...

That seems to be how it works. You also must have cookies enabled if you check the box and wish to be remembered, returning in your logged in state. Otherwise checking the remember me box will have no results (temporary cookie instead). Then there are the sessions (and all those nice folders/lightbu...

Thanks. I was thinking about this too -- but my experiment a few days ago didn't work too well (ended up changing the wrong blocks to black). I'll look to see if there is an overall table that encloses all the data (maybe I just was not recognizing it).
