We ended up using the multiforum mod for punbb... Historical data is only necessary for two forums, so the other dude is going to see if he can do it by hand wink

Yes that makes sense... BUT I wanted to keep the posts they made in the old forums, and that makes it a bit trickier, i.e. importing two separate forums, and still have them somewhat separated in the new forum...

Thanks for your input! smile

Can it be true? Noone has tried this? smile

I only searched the forums superficially, so I am sorry if this has been asked before.

I have six separate forums, which I want to merge into one punbb. My problem is that I want to import usernames, posts etc to the new forum, but I want them to appear separate for the users. I.e. the users from forum1 should be a separate group and so on.

Is there a way to do this?

Many thanks!


Also, verifying email addresses is very hard. A normal way is checking invalid chars, then stripping the username and checking if the host has DNS records. This is as good a verification as you can get. You can't really verify the email address themselves, unless you have set up your SMTP server insecurely...

hahha I just visited the demo page - FireFox prevented this site from opening 5913 popups - Dude are you insane? smile

Du you actually use a picture of a broken image as you avatar? big_smile That's funny smile

Thanks for checking it out! I've put the code in common as you said, and taken the stopwords.txt from the old lang pack. I've also translated the mail templates, which I found by looking wink
I didn't really think to look, as I was using the PunBB Translator tool.

I've updated the .RAR file!

I've made a Danish language pack for punbb 1.2.5 - It's available here: http://ordo.dk/dlfun/PunBB-in-Danish.rar

Odd. This is actually the second time I have this problem. Both times are because punBB is set to send \n for linux...

Mail servers not complying to the standard are either extremely old or very bad and unknown wink The list from DJB's site is very short: http://cr.yp.to/docs/smtplf.html Solaris 2.5 sendmail, Eudora Pro 4.0 for Windows, listproc 6.0c, fetchmail, Galacticom WorldGroups, Claris Emailer and CipherTrust's IronMail SMTP gateway are reported to misbehave. And at least 3 of them are fixed with recent versions wink

No. Linux all the way, point is that it should always be \r\n and never \r or \n by themselves...
In my opinion you should just comply to the 822bis specification, and let mail hosters worry about their software doing it wrong smile Even mail server software that accepts \n.\n as End-Of-Mail is wrong... You should just replace lines 79-84 with $eol = "\r\n";

Doh! You're right. I commented out the other stuff and just set $eol to \r\n - My memory failed me there. Seems to work now!

When I try to send mail using the form, I get the error:

An error was encountered
Error: Unable to send e-mail. Please contact the forum administrator with the following error message
reported by the SMTP server: "451 See http://pobox.com/~djb/docs/smtplf.html. ".

I've even tried to comment out

        if (strtoupper(substr(PHP_OS, 0, 3) == 'WIN'))
                $eol = "\r\n";
        else if (strtoupper(substr(PHP_OS, 0, 3) == 'MAC'))
                $eol = "\r";
                $eol = "\n";

From includes/mail.php and just set $eol to \n but no go.

I suspect my users can't even register themselves at the moment either... Anyone know what I can do?

Uhm, yes. Remove "Read" rights for guests.

Posted it there, thanks smile

I've modded punBB to automatically display the flag of the country of the poster, based on the IP the post came from.
18 lines was added after line 201 in viewtopic.php.
To use it you must download our ip-to-country tool from our website.

Anyway, see the details here: http://weirdsilence.net/131
