Sorry for Reaking of Noobishness

Post by foxrings »

TL;DR
Can you add new users (to a board with registration blocked) by simply adding new MySQL rows to the user table(s)?
_____________________________________

I have an idea for a [3.1.x] Ext—similar to phpBB Invite 3.0.0—but with one extra core feature: "Invite Contamination Analysis"
Image

But I'm plan on running the board on [3.0.x] until [4.0] drops, and I looked into KillBill's [3.0.x] Mod to see if I could add my new feature; and I nearly had an aneurysm looking at all the XML involved. This Noob is barely literate in Codeigniter, so it doesn't seem worth it to learn to write Mods, when Extensions are the way of the future for phpbb.

So my plan for a temporary solution, is to have a separate system on another subdomain (forum.example.com & invite.example.com) written in CodeIgniter. I only write code in my limited free time, but I would like to get the system built ASAP; is this option possible?

the answer is basically no. the reason is because you have to write to several different tables in the database to create a new user, not just the user table.

D'oh, that sucks. I was really hoping that was going to be the solution to my problem.

What is everyone's thoughts about rolling with 3.x versus moving forward to Extensions and 4.0
The list of mods available for 3.x is a much larger library.

That's just because 3.0 has been available longer.

3.0 hits end of life either this month or next. then 3.1 will have about a year or so I think , then 3.2 will come along.
it could be years before 4.0 comes out if at all.

as to your problem, there is a function in phpbb for adding users . just do a search here for "add user" or someting similar and you will find plenty of posts about how to do it.

Both of those are very good news! With just the info both of you have given me, I should be able to make the rest of it happen! Thank you very much!
