Adding a server-side character limit to forum/category names

Hi. I want to add a character limit to the forum and category title inputs in the admin panel. The script need to be server-side so user's can't get around it. I assume I'll need to modify the current lines of code in admin_forums.php: VALUES ('" . str_replace("\'", "''", $HTTP_POST_VARS['categoryna...

Good to know. It's up to date. Also, although this is unrelated I'll ask here rather than create a new thread. Does anyone know where the registration form assigns "user_level" (I.e. 0, 1 or 2 for normal/admin/moderator)? I assume it's somewhere in usercp_register.php but I can't seem to find it...

Okay, thank you! How can I ensure noone inserts malicious code in the forum descriptions? Also, what is the purpose of said code - to leech passwords or something else?


Thanks again for the quick reply.

If someone gains access to my administration panel...

...Is there any risk of them being able to extract users' passwords? This is assuming I am running a standard phpBB board without "EasyMOD" or anything like that.

I assume the worst they can do is insert malicious code in the forum descriptions yes?

Forum width - stretched with big URLS or long "Code&quo

Hello. The main content of my forum is like this: <table> <tr> <td width=150>(EMPTY LEFT MARGIN)</td> <td> ( MAIN CONTENT HERE )</td> <td width=150>(EMPTY RIGHT MARGIN)</td> </tr> </table> In this situation, the forum can become "stretched" horizontally if someone posts a large image, url or code ta...

Email errors: 550 and 554

Hello, I've been receiving a few email errors recently. Last night I received 8, most of which were 550 but a few were 554. Different messages accompany those errors although it seems like people might just be registering with fake email addresses. Is it possible that people are registering with rea...

Hmm... Anyone got any other ideas? It would be nice to have the admin panel load it's own theme as I have more than one administrator.

Seperate CSS for Admin Panel?

I am running on a theme which looks good, however the admin panel text is illegible. My board is set up so the theme files read directly from the CSS file (Disabling the customisation options in the admin panel). I would like to keep it this way. Is there any way to apply a different CSS file to the...

Ok. I did actually choose a different name for it before reading your post. I can imagine someone who has found an exploit jumping through many phpBB boards just testing phpBB/toolkit.php. I am quite happy with the security test feature :) I had the impression that phpBB wasn't all that secure. I re...

Thanks, Usually get my mods from here although I have downloaded a couple from PHPBBhacks.com. What's the deal with this modification? http://starfoxtj.no-ip.com/phpbb/toolkit/ I like the security features it has to check over the forum for malicious code, but since it seems to be hosted by a guy on...

I know that seems illogical. I didn't realise there was a mod-file download (I must have dismissed the other links as mirrors... I hate users like me!) Well, I have done the upgrade by hand now so it's on the latest version. It wasn't as much of a hassle as it initially looked. So. Any suggestions o...

Tips for increasing security above standard?

I want to keep my phpBB board very secure. Currently I am running phpBB 2.0.21. I understand there is a newer release but my board has many modifications (A fair few of which I have done myself, not mods from the phpBB community). Is it possible to get a list of the differences between the latest tw...
