Thank you!!

Installed! Pretty nifty, thank you.

I agree that having the links automatically alphabetized would be waay helpful.

No, it's not. Not even close.

Vanilla is a beast, and lacks almost all of the virtues that make punbb so great (light, fast, clear, easy, superb community, superb support)

Yet, the idea of a mod allowing invisible whispering between users is very appealing...

I look at the .dif files and make all the changes manually.

That's worked out great so far. I am, however, a little more concerned about major version changes (for example our next greatleap forward) but will cross that lagoon clinging to a pontoon when we come to it.

For now, hand code is the way to go for heavily modified boards.

Vanilla has a super cool feature where you can "whisper" a post, or a reply to a specific user.

No one can see the post, topic, or reply except for the addressed recipients, and the main admin.

very cool feature.

I have a vanilla beta installation. It's slow, and while people got excited about how new and fancy it was at first... the main idea that the individual threads are more important than being given an over all view seems novel, but is flawed. Ordinary folks don't get it, and never seem to catch on.

I'm happy with punbb, but agree that allowing topics to sink is a fantastic idea!

This works great!

here's a wee package of mac os ichat smilies for you.

link to zip archive

I'd love nice URL rewrites too!

So simple, and it works great!

Thanks for finding this

I applied this (three times to be sure I did it right) and nothing happens in Safari.


I like this idea, very nice.

However, my question is about installation in a pre existing community. Once installed, wouldn't this render all existing accounts unloginable? If the login and username can not be the same, what happens to the existing users?

Sorted: working great now!

One thing is that not all bots in the example show up. I have been looking for a reliable list of id strings to create an up to date list of bots and how they identify themselves.

Any idea where one might get a current list of this?

It's working!

Notice the credit added in my footer for you.

interesting... nothing changing. Do the bots appear and disappear on your who list on their own?

Guest's have increased now from 18 to 26, looks like 6 new bots, and no notice of them in the who is online list. Wonder if new aliases and id strings are required. I'll add some and see what happenes.

That did it.

changed everything to the lower case: botsconfig

They show up when i go look through the link provided to test...

I do arin whois on the other 18 'guests' and determine that 14 of them are bots. They don't appear as multiple googlebots and what not. Will this only work when they arrive?

Yes, i did. No fopen() error this time either... just nothing showing up in the who list.

One thing:
I elected to change everything to "botsConfig" as opposed to botsconfig. Everything seems to be running fine. Shall I redo it the other way around and see if that works?

Couple things:

1. there is a case sensitivity issue throughout the plugin and install_mod.php where you seem to mix and match




this prevents the install of the db sql, and also prevents the plugin from running.

changing everything to "botsConfig" allows both installation and plugin to run.

2. The bot name still doesn't show up in the who is online list...


I'd be glad to referr. I have a design site where I get requests for work i either can't or wouldn't do all the time, so referrals are likely.

We have a good 10 - 20 bots on the board all the time, and it would be very nice to see who's who for real.

Yes, i did the mod correctly, but i've sussed it out: fopen()

Not allowed on my server. Any chance you could rewrite or post a workaround using curl?



Added this mod, and there are many bots on my board, but they don't seem to appear in the "Who's online" section.

Did I do something wrong?

Strange T-STRING errors...

searching for this:

<ul><li><a href="index.php"><?php echo $lang_common['Index'] ?></a></li><li> » <a href="viewforum.php?id=<?php echo $cur_topic['forum_id'] ?>"><?php echo pun_htmlspecialchars($cur_topic['forum_name']) ?></a></li><li> » <?php echo pun_htmlspecialchars($cur_topic['subject']) ?></li></ul>

I found that in viewtopic.php (manually updated to version 1.2.10 with each update released) what's there is expressed differently:

<ul><li><a href="index.php">'.$lang_common['Index'].'</a></li><li> » <a href="viewforum.php?id='.$cur_topic['forum_id'].'">'.pun_htmlspecialchars($cur_topic['forum_name']).'</a></li><li> » '.pun_htmlspecialchars($cur_topic['subject']).'</li></ul>

i see two instances of similar code used twice in this page, simply replacing the code present with the code for this mod results in T-STRING errors related to unexpected ';' and ',' markup.

I'm wondering why my viewtopic.php has such different code from this mod.

I discovered the same thing...

couldn't put a margin or a border around images which appear in the sidebar...

never figured it out.
