lose information about who has contributed the most in the past

Spam we delete is not a contribute.

Without this feature "Number of posts" must be renamed to "Number of postings".

Your "read more" link is broken.

This is very useful feature.
It has to be included in PunBB core. Or at minimum PunBB developers has to make this extension official.

If you change line 95 of functions.inc.php, as it's shown below, you'll get the similar topics in an regular forum box:

Original Line 95:
return !empty($topic_links) ? sprintf('<div id="fancy_simtopics_block" class="brd crumbs"><h3>'.$header.'</h3><ul>%s</ul></div>', implode(' ', $topic_links)) : '';

Changed Line 95:
return !empty($topic_links) ? sprintf('<div class="main-subhead"><h2 class="hn">'.$header.'</h2></div><div class="main-content"><ul>%s</ul></div>', implode(' ', $topic_links)) : '';

If I have to choose only one extension for my forum, it will be definitely  "pun_attachment". Actually it's my only requirement for this forum software. Unfortunately, we have frequently issues with this extension.

Lets see now:Apache 2.0.54, PHP: 5.2.17, MySQL Standard 5.1.55, PunBB v 1.4.1, pun_attachment Version 1.1.17
On the Administration -> Settings -> Attachment page I'm receiving man such errors:

Warning: getimagesize() [function.getimagesize]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /nfs/c07/h04/mnt/106423/domains/forexsb.com/html/forum/extensions/pun_attachment/pun_attach.php on line 26

There are no errors on other pages and seems that the attachment extension works well, bu this is definitely issue that has to be fixed.

I know that someone may counter that this is a problem of my server configuration: allow_url_fopen = Off, but this option is off on a good reason.

Is there a chance the extension to be fixed, so that to use relative image addresses or to find another solution?
I'll appreciate any help. 
Thank you for the consideration and have good time coding PunBB!

This extension is really useful. Thank you Dimkalinux!

However I notice an issue.

My forum is at _http://forexsb.com/forum/
I also have redirection to it from _http://forum.forexsb.com/

The redirection is:

# Redirerct subdomeins
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^forum.forexsb.com$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.forum.forexsb.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://forexsb.com/forum/$1 [R=301,L]

An error appear when I visit the forum from the second url:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in .../forum/extensions/fancy_simtopics/functions.inc.php on line 5

Any ideas for fix?

No problems.
I'm running punnbb 1.3.5 and 1.4RC for tests on local host under  WampServer on Win7 64.
The only problems are fancy url and emails but who needs them on local host.

Thank you hcs.
I'm running 1.3.5 on my production website but want to help with testing / debugging. Probably we have to open a thread about that. The development forum is closed for new threads. Do you sugest testing only the officialy released beta versions?

Best regards,

BBCode buttons do not work with the latest source code of PunBB 15.07.2011.

https://github.com/punbb/punbb/tree/d2b … 16139006bb

I attached image with BBCode installed and deinstalled. There are problems in both cases.

When installed a script appears instead of buttons.
After deinstalling, it breaks CSS.

Please see this image

I found the mail server blacklisted. I reported the problem to the hosting company ( Fcolor ) and they ensure me that they will make their best to solve the problem.

Also their certificate was expired looong ago:


Can I do anything more in order to protect my website and forum?

Hello dear friend,
I have reports from users of my forum http://forexsb.com/forum/ that they receive their e-mail registration confirmation as spam.

Now I received returned mail from Yahoo that say "Remote host said: 421 4.7.1 [TS03] All messages from will be permanently deferred;" where this is the IP of my hosting company.

I have never sent mass e-mails or any spam. 

Is it possible the forum to be hacked or infected?
How can I check if fake emails are sent from my website or forum.?

Thank you!

BUG !!!!!!!!

The thumbnail images point to the http://www.postimage.org/ website instead the full size image. So nobody can see the image. 

Please answer urgently!


What is the maximal size of the image that allows it to be shown in full size?


Is there any chance to run this excellent script (or older version) under PHP 5.0.4

I'm trying to connect my wordpress blog to another blog. I want the posts from the external blog to appear under a specific category. I think it can be done by using RSS, but I cannot find info hoe to do this.

I need a part of the original post only and a link to it to appear in my blog.

Any help is much appreciated.


I found a plugin to Wordpress that feed the blog with external RSS posts. Its name is Feedwordpress.

the user should NEVER be allowed to edit that post again.

That has to be an option. I personally like the user to be able to edit even after a reply. The "Last edited by someone ..." note will appear i that case.

Another way is this extension to allow editing for the specified time even when from the board settings that has been forbidden.

Another way to safely tell the searchers what your url should be is to include this link in the header section of the web page:

     <link rel="canonical" href="http://forexsb.com/" />

As you know some search engines can penalize your site for duplicate content.
The reason is that they see these URL like different pages:


To prevent this I found .htaccess 301 redirection script in the net. It does this job as well as it redirects the sub domains properly also. I'm currently using this script on my website.

Options +FollowSymLinks 
RewriteEngine on 

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^.*index\.html\ HTTP/
RewriteRule ^(.*)index\.html$ /$1 [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !=""
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^forexsb\.com
RewriteRule (.*) http://forexsb.com/$1 [R=301,L]

This code redirects all the shown URLs to:


Here you are how it works:

URL to check : http://www.forexsb.com/index.html

URL: http://www.forexsb.com/index.html ... redirected (301)

URL: http://www.forexsb.com/ ... redirected (301)

URL: http://forexsb.com/ ... found.

Well, I'm not an Apache guru so I would like to comment this script against possible issues.

Best Regards!

Hi, it doesn't work. It gives this error when I try to attach img to answer. When I use quick answer it returns my forum's page.  No any img link at all.


'not enabled' => 'enable',   <---- Is this OK?
'enabled' => 'enabled',
'disable' => 'Disable?',

Well done Rich! smile

Go ahead.

Akismet as well as Captcha are most important plugins concerning the spam protection.

Excellent!!! Thank you.

Any ideas?

Bad request. The link you followed is incorrect or outdated.

I'm using  URL Scheme - folder based.

That section "Recent Forums posts" in the front PunBB page is looking well.

Can the webmaster post its source?

PunBB is great!

I saw a problem, asked for help, received an answer, installed a plugin and solved the problem within 10min.

Is the God's hand over this project? smile
