Re: Contact Board Admin

I originally had the 0.1.4 or 0.1.5 installed, and did the upgrade to 1.0.5a today (thinkin' about doing the upgrade to 106 or 107....

However, my question is around the original "additional" mod to remove all the mailto links. I've noticed they don't seem to referenced in the installer, and that was one of the reasons, I really liked the mod. I think they were just a post in the original dev or beta thread from Jan-ish of 09.

If I can dig up the original changes, will they continue to work with the new versions (1.0.5a, or 1.0.7)?

Thanks,

Hi Rich

Thanks for updating this mod and these new features

I just updated the mod to v 1.0.7 and I faced a problem:

I set URLs allowed (yes) but still I can't post urls in the contact message.

thanks again :)

Here's the original modifications:

http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 4#p4124015

Basically it changed the references to the mailto stuff through the entire site, so that it would only load the contact form, vs, showing the original founder email address.

I believe when I was trying to do an upgrade to 3.0.6, it was complaining about a whole bunch of those lines of code that were changed though. So it's possible they have removed the mailto links in 3.0.6.... Won't know until i try to do an upgrade without the mods there and see how it pans out. If that's the case it would just be a moot point anyway......

Appreciate the support though.

As you state it looks as though those code edits remove the mailto references thoughout the board. Doesn't really have anything to do with the Contact Board Admin mod. Saying that though, there are instances where the mail to links are used in this mod. For example, in the captcha part as well as error tossing if the mod detects an error off the top of my head. EG, if you use the CAPTCHA in this mod and no one can read it, how would they contact you if you removed the mailto links?

Agreed.... that if you used the captcha on the form, and there's an issue with it.... then without the mailto links they wouldn't be able to contact you. However, I just don't like having addresses out in the open either though...... If you change it to a "no-spam" thing on the it's not going to help them either at that point.

It's one of those things, security/privacy vs. the real world.... and suprisingly, I'm leaning towards the "privacy part". <G>

I guess I'll have to see what I can figure out then.... thanks.

Experimenting with a 3.0.6 board at this point so I'll do the upgrade to 1.0.7 and go from there....

I can't see the visual confirmation for guests on my site. I'm using reCaptcha on 3.0.6

It's working fine on my site. Ensure you are using the mod download from google code (for a 3.0.6 forum) and not the zip in the first post (for a 3.0.5 forum).

Does the recaptcha show up okay when someone tries to register?

Edit: Found the google code and updated. Works fine now.
