Hello,
yeah, my first validated phpBB3 MOD! :D 8-)

Some additional notes:
  • board email have to be activated
  • After the verifying of the email address the new users are getting only one time a message in the browser that the account now needs to be activated by an administrator. If they are clicking the activation link again they are getting a message about a activation key mismatch. So spam bot machines are not getting informed what's the matter with the account activation on this board. But the administrator or the site admin sometimes are getting emails from new users asking the account is not running by now. So you are getting a good feedback too for activating this account. Then it seems to be not a spam account. <= This has been changed in 1.4.0. Now the "true story" is displayed.
  • If you have tons of good registrations every day on your board it could be possible that the use of this MOD is not a good idea. I'm administering two boards till about 2000 registered users. I'm getting only a few registrations every day and so I'm spending only some minutes every day to verify these new accounts cause my email ban list is well filled. <= Since some time I'm using the Advanced Block MOD. So I don't need ban lists anymore. If you are interested in more information about ths MOD please look here: http://www.martin-truckenbrodt.com/cgi/ ... f=48&t=224 .

Hi Martin,

After a lot of hickups, I finally got your great mod working like a charm. Just wanted to let you know of a possible mistake that I stumbled across during installation of the German language addon:

I guess that

Open: language/de/acp/board.php
Find
Tip: This may be a partial find and not the whole line.

Code: Select all

ACC_USER'					=> 'durch Benutzer',
Replace With
Tip: Replace the preceding line(s) to find with the following lines.

Code: Select all

	'ACC_USER_ADMIN'			=> 'Benutzer + Administrator',
is wrong and should follow the English template example of:

Code: Select all

//	'ACC_USER_ADMIN'			=> 'User + Admin',
replaced with

Code: Select all

	'ACC_USER_ADMIN'			=> 'User + Admin',
leaving the

Code: Select all

ACC_USER'					=> 'durch Benutzer',
part of the language/de/acp/board.php untouched?

When making the changes according to your German template, the result will be this
Image

It'd be great if you could take a look at this.

Thanks heaps for your help and efforts!

Hi again Martin,

Picking up ToXiQ's idea from the development thread, I was wondering, if there is a way one could change the following:

When someone, after registration, has clicked the activation link, the message that the administrator yet has to activate the account will be displayed for just a mere second. One can hardly read the message that fast - especially if you're not aware that there will be such a message.
I guess it would require some addings to the includes/ucp/ucp_activate.php.

Thanks again for your help!

Hello,
I've done a fix for the bug at the de.xml. Please look at my first post at this topic.

The refresh time:
OPEN includes/ucp/ucp_activate.php
FIND (it's included two times - take the second result)

Code: Select all

		meta_refresh(3, append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}index.$phpEx"));
Change 3 with an higher value. (Not tested!)

Bye Myrtin

Thanks Martin for the quick help!

I will look into this tomorrow...

UPDATE: Just implemented the changes you suggested with great success. A value of 7 did the trick for me.

Thanks again for this Mod Martin. Almost done with our true live forum here, but I ran into a little snag and I can't figure out how to fix this one.

The double email works great, except that there are 3 founders on my board (at the moment) and only the first email actually has content.

Somebody registers and clicks their activation link, and then the ucp.php file does a call to the ucp_activate.php file. Inside there, it does a "select ... from users where usertype=founder" (not exact syntax) and that works and grabs the 3 founders.

The first email that the board sends looks great, but the second and third emails have headers but are blank....

This is the last header in the blank email I receive...

Code: Select all

 $messenger->headers('X-AntiAbuse: User IP - ' . $user->ip);
And I think it's either missing the messenger->template call or the "assign_vars" call, and I'm not sure how to set up to troubleshoot if the two calls are making it through... any thoughts?

Hello semag,
I will test it on my board next days.

Perhaps some lines above the while loop have to be moved into the loop itself.

Thanks man.

I was thinking too that maybe the template call is failing, thus causing an empty message body - whereas the headers and such are still populated correctly. I'm going to double check a couple of these things in just a minute.

NICE!!! Good thought martin... here's what I did:

BERFORE

Code: Select all

$messenger = new messenger(false);
$messenger->template('admin_activate', $user_row['user_lang']);

 while ($admin_row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result))
                        {
                                

                                $server_url = generate_board_url();
AFTER:

Code: Select all

 while ($admin_row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result))
                        {
                                $messenger = new messenger(false);
                                $messenger->template('admin_activate', $user_row['user_lang']);

                                $server_url = generate_board_url();
I think what was happening was that the email was getting created with the messenger->template call, but that was getting written to and then the while statement looped through and didn't re-create the email.

Seems like that worked to me, I don't know if it may have broken anything. Let me know what you think.
