Hi All,

This is my first mod. I submitted it to the MODDB a hour ago and am placing it here so people can start using it before it is in the DB. Resubmitted after denial on May 30th

The mod is fully permission based using one permission for starting a wiki post and another for editing them. You can easily disable it for any forums if you wish or only allow certain groups to use it. Full feature list coming soon...

Code: Select all

Edited first post again with:

I've had some testers on the demo site, but no feedback here... Anyone interested?

Do you have permission to continue foki? I has nadermans permission, and start a new topic(See http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.ph ... light=foki).

Yes of course I have permission I would not have done it without his permission. I posted this: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.ph ... 67#2061167 and shortly after exchanged a few PMs with him and permission was granted. His PM said:
You're free to base it on my code since it's released under the GPL just like every other MOD :) So go ahead and make it a great MOD :wink: However I'd like you to choose an at least slightly altered name, so in case I have time to continue it on my own I can continue that MOD with the same name, thanks.

naderman


I have given full credit also. Shall edit first post to say I had permission.

Yes. I got hacked a few days ago. I didn't realise that they messed up that site also. I shall sort it out ASAP.

Many Thanks for telling me, Luke

Nice... will we need to download and install wiki? sorry to hear about your site... hope to see a demo soon. goodluck!

I haven't got the site up yet :oops: The download link should still work though. You do not need to install any other wiki software. This has its own wiki built into it so all you need is phpBB and QWiki.

Luke :D

If your site was hacked (which is unfortunate) wouldn't it be safer to assume that the file might possibly be corrupted? Or did you check that already?

The hacker got root access to the server and deleted all the sites on it, all the databases and most of the files. Fortunately it was a dedicated server so only my files were deleted. It was also not a phpBB exploit (supprisingly :lol: )

I need to re-upload the files. I shall be getting it ready for offical release to the MOD DB soon so the site shall be back up after that.

Thanks, Luke

hmm well doesn't seem to be working. all the other feaures work, like in search, and search for updated wiki ect. I take it i'm suppose to see something while posting? I double checked posting.php, I did edit all template files and I already checked permissions too...

You should see a checkbox when posting a message near to the "Notify me when a reply is posted" and "Attach signature (signatures can be changed in profile)" checkboxes saying "Let everybody edit this post" or something along those lines (I can't remember exactly). If you check that then it should be a wiki style post.

Do you see it?

No I do not... it's a simple mod to install, not sure what im missing here.
::edit::
Actually now that I remember, my internet conection was lost just as I inserted the SQL into my database! maybe im missing some SQL... I tried inserting it agian.. but seemed to already be there. but who knows, maybe the tables are empty. could you please make/show me a DROP TABLE IF EXISTS? just to double check.

You should already have the SQL. It is not that which is preventing it from showing. Make sure you have uploaded templates/subSilver/posting_body.tpl

Thanks
