I'm using 1.3 on multiple site's, on purpose. smile The biggest (also the most inactive one) is http://forums.audio-tracker.com/. The entire project that the forum belongs to, is experimental so I figured it would be a nice way to see how it's behaving in such an environment. No hard feelings if it breaks something. People would figure out quite soon I believe. And the sooner the better, bugs can be fixed faster and more accurate (when properly managed/submitted of course), I think. (due to inactivity and lack of time I haven't been able create any reasonable feedback, I got plans to do this any time soon).

<Smartys> I'm not sure why people think we're joking when we say don't use beta software in a production environment
<Smartys> If the software were ready to be used at that level, it wouldn't be beta

You couldn't be more right btw. I definitely wouldn't do this in case of a (semi-) large, money making, production environment.

Just wanted to give you heads up on another successful installation of the portal: http://www.mariaincampislaan.nl/

It's been working flawless so far. Although it did take me some time to figure out (realize) the damn thing should go into PunBB's extension folder (doh). big_smile

An excellent extension and just what I needed. Keep up the good work! smile

Kaboon: to talk, a forum is probably still the best way of doing it. Maybe Rickard can open a temporary forum for the 1.3 testing, so that everything don't go directly on trac?

My point exactly! Just take a look around on the forums. 1.3 topics are everywhere at the moment.

To release v1.3: As I can see, none of developers don't want say it, nor approximately! I don't see why.

There simply is not an exact release date for v1.3.

As soon as the developers reach a point where they think it's ready and it's all finished up to make it a proper, bug free, feature filled release, they'll send it out to the public. And to protect their selfs, the devs won't say "it'll be ready by XX-XX-XXXX". Because if they don't manage to make the release on time everybody will be disappointed. Also, if the developers think of a new feature that has to be in v1.3, it'll also delay the release.

Not ready yet, the dev team is still working on trac. When it's done, we will be able to open tickets on stuff (or hassle a moderator to do it, or something like that).

I'm not particularly aiming at opening tickets on trac. I just want a place to talk about the trac version without hassling a moderator for every minor detail. IMHO it'd be reasonable to have a potential bug/flaw or whatever being tested and confirmed by multiple users and then hassle a moderator with it. After all, it could be just a incorrect config or a wrong server setting (this is just an example of things I'd like to discuss with other people who've got a trac version running). In this way, the community could already create an wishlist/(potential) bug list to help out the developers during the development process and people don't have to bother all the developers with stuff they've discovered in the trac version. It could even possibly speed up development because the developers don't have to look into every detail since it'll be done already by the community. They could fix bugs at instant! wink big_smile (j/k)

Hey there,

It's been a while. smile This probably sounds very noobish but I want to join in on testing the PunBB. Therefor I got myself a SNV copy (09-01-'07) and uploaded it to my website (http://www.berkenpies.nl/punbb_dev).

I didn't pop up on search, but some 1.3 development sub-forums (main branch / extensions) on forums.punbb.org would be nice to discuss any pre-release stuff. There are probably reasons for you guys not to do it. But from my point of view, anyone who can download a SVN branch is smart enough to make a sensible post in one of those forums. smile

- Kaboon

Ack, just as i expected... I'm running short on time. The download that's available is still the 1.2 pre-release one. Some things have changed since then. I'll see if I can find some time to convert it to it 1.2.1 and work on it again.

This is an excellent idea, good job Connorhd! smile

Just wondering, can your server handle all the hits, loads and traffic?

I don't see any bodies hanging around... hmm

While playing with PunBB v1.2 I decided to do a new Dutch version of the language pack. I'm always short on time due to my work but this is what I've got so far:

http://www.audio-tracker.com/files/Nederlands.rar

If there are any Dutch people around, please check it out. I'd reallly like some feedback on this. smile

Because it's not in the upgrade (I did 1.1.5 -> 1.2) script? Can't find anything about o_default_user_group in the source. smile

I'm afraid not. Still getting a "Notice: Undefined index: o_default_user_group in /var/www/html/forums/login.php on line 71" warning and I'm still being sent to the register page again. I'll see if I can track that one down later this day.

Have a look in the config table in the database. Make sure it contains a row called o_default_user_group.

Was missing indeed. Added (o_default_user_group, 4) now it's working flawlessly.

Works for me. Enable DEBUG mode and try again. There's a sticky topic describing how in the troubleshooting forums.

Hehehe, sorry to bother you that much. I got a bit excited so I forgot to look for manuals and stuff. hmm

Anyway, this is what I get when the user tries to log-in for the first time:

File: /var/www/html/forums/login.php
Line: 71

PunBB reported: Unable to update user status

Database reported: You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'WHERE id=157' at line 1 (Errno: 1064)

[edit]

I changed:

$db->query('UPDATE '.$db->prefix.'users SET group_id='.$pun_config['o_default_user_group'].' WHERE id='.$user_id) or error('Unable to update user status', __FILE__, __LINE__, $db->error());

Into:

$db->query('UPDATE '.$db->prefix.'users SET group_id=\''.$pun_config['o_default_user_group'].'\' WHERE id='.$user_id) or error('Unable to update user status', __FILE__, __LINE__, $db->error());

Which made it kinda work. But that results in a:

Notice: Undefined index: o_default_user_group in /var/www/html/forums/login.php on line 71

On the next page. big_smile (also brings me back to the 1st step of registering and user stays in "Not verified" state but is able to log-in)

Ah, and while I'm at it, i've been wondering this for a while:

My server allows creation of subdomains (using Esmin CP). A subdomain points to a folder in the root (html) directory. So that means http://forums.audio-tracker.com/ actually goes to http://www.audio-tracker.com/forums

We use the http://forums.audio-tracker.com/ as default. But I was just working in http://www.audio-tracker.com/forums because I couldn't switch off the Maintenace Mode (even by using the script and changing the database setting). I thought that may have helped (was wrong though, needed to change cache/cache_config.php to make it work again -> could this considered being a bug too?) . Anyway, after i fixed stuff again, I continued working in http://www.audio-tracker.com/forums. Then i found out that updating of the Settings in the admin cp works without any problems but as soon as I want to change some Permissions it throws the following error at me:

Info

Bad HTTP_REFERER. You were referred to this page from an unauthorized source. If the problem persists please make sure that 'Base URL' is correctly set in Admin/Options and that you are visiting the forum by navigating to that URL. More information regarding the referrer check can be found in the PunBB documentation.

Been wondering if this is intended behaviour or that all the other panes in the admin cp should do the same...

The best way to test a board is in production (i did make a backup though.. wink). I'll let you know what I'll run into. Been running the -dev source for a while now on one of my other websites (forums run stable) and I can say that I absolutely love v1.2. smile

Been running the dev source for a few days now. Everything is still looking good. Haven't found bugs so far.

Yeah, the database is on the same server. And as for the host we tried "localhost" and "127.0.0.1" both didn't work (currently it's still 127.0.0.1, I belive).

I'll soon work on a custom style. Kinda busy at the moment.

Hello. First of all I'd like to say that I really love PunBB. I've been looking for a forum like this for a long time now. Small, easy to use and easy to modify.

But I got the following problem with one of my forums:

An error was encountered
Error: Unable to connect to MySQL server. Host 'localhost.localdomain' is blocked because of many connection errors. Unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts'.

Forum: http://www.assen-4-all.nl/punbb/

And the weird part is that http://www.assen-4-all.nl/forum/ runs on the same database and does work. I didn't changed anything besides some details in config.php because we moved the database and forum from another server.

Any suggestions where I could look in to? I got very limited access (read: probably none) access to the MySQL server.
