Thanks Patrik I was having the exact same problem with 1.2.16
I removed $destination_url = 'index.php'; and cleared the cache folder, now it behave the way I like it to (i.e not redirecting to the index) : )

Here's my current section in function.php

// Display $message and redirect user to $destination_url
function redirect($destination_url, $message)
    global $db, $pun_config, $lang_common, $pun_user;

     // Prefix with o_base_url (unless it's there already) 

     if (strpos($destination_url, $pun_config['o_base_url']) !== 0) 
         $destination_url = $pun_config['o_base_url'].'/'.$destination_url; 
     // Do a little spring cleaning 
     $destination_url = preg_replace('/([\r\n])|(%0[ad])|(;[\s]*data[\s]*:)/i', '', $destination_url);

Great that helped you too! Though I still have some problems with 1.2.16 when I use some plugins (AP_Links_with_category and AP_Affiliates), so I switched back to this code in functions.php

 // Prefix with o_base_url (unless it's there already)
          if ($destination_url == '')
          $destination_url = 'index.php';

Paste your code so we can take a look at it? wink

I should think before I post :=)
I figured out I forgot to remove $destination_url = 'index.php'; in functions.php in update 1.2.16.

When I post new topic or if I send private message etc I am always redirected to the first index.php page
Its the same if I change in admin options. After my settings are made I go to index.php
Anyone how knows the problem with it?

I really didn't get this one.
Should I rename the forum/cache directory to 777? :S

huh? create the config.php and go from there.


I can't find out the stuff to write in config.php at PhpMyAdmin. Where is it?

I really think you should check out My PunBB instead.

I am not sure if this is a bug in PunBB, but a problem for sure.

When I try to register a new name in for example PunBB and by mistake confirm with a wrong e-mail address and then go back from the info page the register button is locked up. This happens to me in Firefox Version The same happens if you confirm wrong image verification and go back from info page. I have to refresh the register page to get it to work.
Sorry if somebody already reported this, but I could not find it anywhere.

I do not get this problem in IE6 however.

Hi guys, this message is on the page when i try to connect to my forum, "http://www.chipmunk.gr/upload"

i run my database in a windows server!this is the problem?and if yes how can i solve it?


If you use IIS go to the directory cache and under security add
write access for account IUSR_*Computername*. Then it should work fine.

If someone charge for mods, I think all money income should be sent to Rickard. That would be fair.

Very nice integrated. The band is great too. I love "Funeral".

Nice. I really like this mod. Thanks ! I also like your gallery with Lightbox JS. Is the full code for that implementation a secret?

Here is my main.tpl. I use Miniportal.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

"Removed because it did not help"

My host is PHP: 4.3.11

I have a problem getting output from extern.php when including it in the main.tpl.
There is no output whatsoever.
I tried a simple

<?php include('http://www.site.com/forum/extern.php?action=stats'); ?>

but that didn't work.
So I read a little in this forum, and decided to try the pun_include, and I put this code in main.tpl:

<pun_include "http://www.site.no/forum/extern.php?action=stats">

But that didn't work either. What am I doing wrong?

I read through a bunch of other threads regarding extern.php, but couldnt find the answer hmm

Here is a fix. In include/user make a script called for example _extern.php
For example:

<?php include "http://community.webzine.se/extern.php? … amp;fid=13";?

Then in main.tpl include
For example:

<pun_include "_extern.php">

The opiton Use search Yes/No in groups administration doesn't work

in userlist.php there's:

if ($pun_user['g_read_board'] == '0')
    message($lang_common['No view']);

and should be:

if ($pun_user['g_read_board'] == '0')
    message($lang_common['No view']);
else if ($pun_user['g_search_users'] == '0')
    message($lang_search['No search permission']);

also in functions.php function generate_navlinks()
i've added:

if ($pun_user['g_search_users'] == '1')    $links[] = '<li id="navuserlist"><a href="userlist.php">'.$lang_common['User list'].'</a>';

It works for me smile

greetings !

I think you should edit profile.php then too. In profile you may have information on emails for spam purposes.

Here is also a demo site


I have edited the design alittle and some lang adjustments in the mod, and some news.

I added the following to profile.php (more design issue).

// Tell header.php to use the admin template
define('PUN_ADMIN_CONSOLE', 1);

Thanks Connorhd for real nice mod. Its seems to work out fine.

Some users of my forum cannot log in: they type correct username and password.

Then "Logged In. Redirecting...". And, finnaly, "Your are not logged in"

I have analyzed server logs, and noticed, that requests from their IPs look like
"GET /forum/index.php HTTP/1.0" 200 7688

But for other users, I see: "GET /forum/index.php HTTP/1.1" 200 2375

All other things are the same (cookies are enabled, no frames or redirects)

I think I had one of this problems before, and if I do not remember wrong I had to delete the cookie and then
it worked agian.
