It should work with 1.1.5 without any problems. In order to install it, you will have to open up mod_install.php and add 1.1.5 to the end of the line

$punbb_versions    = array('1.1', '1.1.1', '1.1.2', '1.1.3', '1.1.4');

Other than that, it shouldn't be a problem. No files were moved or renamed in 1.1.5. common_admin.php is located in the directory include.


I'm not hot on this MOD thing, why not make a version with all the mods already installed, this way stupid newbies don't mess-up your pretty nice forum program.

Really I want these mods it's really cool, but I have no skill.

Re: User Groups System

the instructions aren't to hard to follow and there is a punbb++ thing in development which includes alot of mods

Re: User Groups System

Re: User Groups System

What should I do to fix it?

Re: User Groups System

Hi, I'm pretty new to PunBB but I'm already getting comfortable with it. So I decided it would be cool to install the Groups Mod.

Now, I'm getting this error (like some did before me, in this topic) when trying to post new topics:

"An error was encountered
File: /home/httpd/vhosts/austinv.net/httpdocs/include/functions.php
Line: 29

PunBB reported: Unable to fetch group info
Database reported: You have an error in your SQL syntax near '' at line 1 (Errno: 1064)"

Pretty annoying since a forum isn't of much use if you can't put any topics inside of it tongue. Hope someone's willing to sort this issue out once and for all.

Re: User Groups System

OK, think I figured it out.
Check your forum database and see if the forum you're posting in has a group set? If not, set it to 0 and try

First of all, thank you for trying to help me out. This is what I've tried so far:

- manually adjusting the "group"-value for a specific subforum in the database and

- assigning a specified group to another subforum through PunBB it self

- after having tried this, I've manually rset the database values to 0, like you suggested

(Just to make sure: I've created two different groups by using admin-> groups -> add)

No luck, the same error still occurs. Maybe it has something to do with the whole forum not being publicly accessible? It's meant as a "shadow-site", where moderators of other sites can chat about things happening on their own forums. Therefore, people can't view any of the subforums unless they were invited.

Then again, there were other people experiencing the exact same problem. Can't imagine all of them running private-only forums.

Re: User Groups System

I really dunno tongue
Try adding $cur_forum to the global? Since that's where it should pull the id from.

Just a random guess here (I really should install it in my forum)

Nope, doesn't work either sad

This the dreaded instruction (found in functions.php) that supposedly messes things up:

$result = $db->query('SELECT members FROM '.$db->prefix.'groups WHERE id='.$group) or error('Unable to fetch group info', __FILE__, __LINE__, $db->error());

Am I overlooking something?

Re: User Groups System

Nope, that is indeed the SQL wink

I'll install it in my forums tonight or tomorrow

Ok, installed
I tried to re-create it and couldn't
Someone tell me a couple things:
the poster's status
the group (if any) the forum is in
the group (if any) the user is part of
any other info you think might be important

btw: another bug is that if someone's nick is changed, their group status isn't updated.

Poster's status: head-admin.

the group (if any) the forum is in

it's a group called "head-admins only", a gathering of some forum's head-admins who get a special status on our forum

the group (if any) the user is part of

I've set this to "none", "head-admins only", "subforum mods only" (another group I've created) and both.

any other info you think might be important

btw: another bug is that if someone's nick is changed, their group status isn't updated.

I'm sorry, I'm running all out of ideas by now neutral But thanks for willing to help me... I really need to get these forums up and running again.

Re: User Groups System

Still can't replicate it wink

Do you get it while posting a new thread, or making a new post?

ooh, another bug: for some reason when I set the group rights, if I check the highest IDed group, the name of it becomes my title tongue

Only while trying to post a new topic. Posting inside of an existing topic causes no pain whatsoever.

Re: User Groups System

*bump*. Sorry, still can't get this plug-in to work the way it's supposed to. Anyone who's got tips or remarks, please enlighten me. The only option for me is removing the Groups functionality for now, i guess. sad

my tip would be to wait for punbb 1.2 and just disable the user groups for now.. since 1.2  is going to have an built in user group system
