Hi, I installed this mod, but wondering about activating it in my forum.

I have the option in my ACP to make a forum anonymous, but is there an easier way to determine the Forum ID where you wish to activate this option? I went into phpmyadmin and found it, but the forum id doesn't show anywhere in the ACP, or am I missing it?

Thanks, your mod was just what I needed, and it installed easily with EasyMod.

Yes take for instance we are currently in the "MOD Release Announcements & Support" forum. ie. http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=15 that means that the 15 after the "f" ie the "forum" is the forum number.

It's inside the boardconfiguration on your acp. You have to set the forum which shall be anonymous and you can also set the user_id od the fakeuser which shall be shown instead of the real user.

Thank you for the replies. It would be nice if in the board configuration, or in the Forum Management area of ACP, the forum id were shown. But the work arounds aren't that difficult.

Thanks for the help, and for this mod!

Can't see in ACP

Post by Kookee » Mon Oct 10, 2005 12:41 pm

Hi
I'm fairly new to phpbb, but i have successfully installed mods before and this one is giving me a problem that I can't solve myself. I can't seem to find the option to make a forum anonymous anywhere. As i understand it, it should be under "pruning" in the Forum Admin column.... but I don't see it. I've attached the following code from the functions_post since i think that might have something to do with it since i was having trouble with a some instructions for this file ... the other files I'm sure i edited correctly since it was only tables and very straight foward stuff, etc... hopefully someone can help me out.

Instructions that confused me:
#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
$sql = ($mode != "editpost") ? "INSERT INTO " . TOPICS_TABLE . " (topic_title,

#
#-----[ IN-LINE FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
$userdata['user_id']

#
#-----[ IN-LINE REPLACE WITH ]------------------------------------------
#
$anon_id

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
$sql = ($mode != "editpost") ? "INSERT INTO " . POSTS_TABLE . " (topic_id,

#
#-----[ IN-LINE FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
$userdata['user_id']

#
#-----[ IN-LINE REPLACE WITH ]------------------------------------------
#
$anon_id


What I tried according to what I could figure out from the instructions:

Code: Select all

		$sql  = ($mode != "editpost") ? "INSERT INTO " . TOPICS_TABLE . " (topic_title, topic_poster, topic_time, forum_id, topic_status, topic_type, topic_vote) VALUES ('$post_subject', " . $userdata['$anon_id'] . ", $current_time, $forum_id, " . TOPIC_UNLOCKED . ", $topic_type, $topic_vote)" : "UPDATE " . TOPICS_TABLE . " SET topic_title = '$post_subject', topic_type = $topic_type " . (($post_data['edit_vote'] || !empty($poll_title)) ? ", topic_vote = " . $topic_vote : "") . " WHERE topic_id = $topic_id";
Also tried:

Code: Select all

		$sql  = ($mode != "editpost") ? "INSERT INTO " . TOPICS_TABLE . " (topic_title, topic_poster, topic_time, forum_id, topic_status, topic_type, topic_vote) VALUES ('$post_subject', "  '$anon_id' ", $current_time, $forum_id, " . TOPIC_UNLOCKED . ", $topic_type, $topic_vote)" : "UPDATE " . TOPICS_TABLE . " SET topic_title = '$post_subject', topic_type = $topic_type " . (($post_data['edit_vote'] || !empty($poll_title)) ? ", topic_vote = " . $topic_vote : "") . " WHERE topic_id = $topic_id";
Neither Work... now I'm not sure what to do... HElp me please! :cry:

Thanks!

I assume you're talking about functions_post.php. Here's what mine ended up looking like, and it works fine:
$sql = ($mode != "editpost") ? "INSERT INTO " . TOPICS_TABLE . " (topic_title, topic_poster, topic_time, forum_id, topic_status, topic_type, topic_vote) VALUES ('$post_subject', " . $anon_id . ", $current_time, $forum_id, " . TOPIC_UNLOCKED . ", $topic_type, $topic_vote)" : "UPDATE " . TOPICS_TABLE . " SET topic_title = '$post_subject', topic_type = $topic_type " . (($post_data['edit_vote'] || !empty($poll_title)) ? ", topic_vote = " . $topic_vote : "") . " WHERE topic_id = $topic_id";
if (!$db->sql_query($sql))
{
message_die(GENERAL_ERROR, 'Error in posting', '', __LINE__, __FILE__, $sql);
}

if ($mode == 'newtopic')


and
$sql = ($mode != "editpost") ? "INSERT INTO " . POSTS_TABLE . " (topic_id, forum_id, poster_id, post_username, post_time, poster_ip, enable_bbcode, enable_html, enable_smilies, enable_sig) VALUES ($topic_id, $forum_id, " . $anon_id . ", '$post_username', $current_time, '$anon_ip', $bbcode_on, $html_on, $smilies_on, $attach_sig)" : "UPDATE " . POSTS_TABLE . " SET post_username = '$post_username', enable_bbcode = $bbcode_on, enable_html = $html_on, enable_smilies = $smilies_on, enable_sig = $attach_sig" . $edited_sql . " WHERE post_id = $post_id";
if (!$db->sql_query($sql, BEGIN_TRANSACTION))
{
message_die(GENERAL_ERROR, 'Error in posting', '', __LINE__, __FILE__, $sql);
}

if ($mode != 'editpost')

Hi Thanks for replying. Actually I went back and did it the way you did it and i still can't seem to find the option to make a forum anonymous. Where is it on your ACP? Am I blind or is it just not working for me?

Look in the ACP for Configuration under General Admin.

Here's a picture of the feature in the Configuration page:

Since installing this mod, I get the following errors whenever you post a "New Topic" or "Post a Reply"

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /usr/home/shawn/public_html/forum/includes/functions_post.php:884) in /usr/home/shawn/public_html/forum/includes/page_header.php on line 475

Anyone with any ideas?

These errors sometimes occur when you didn't do the right steps at modifiying the files. Recheck the steps written in the MOD-File and if you really put the stuff at the right place.
