you right. I just tried to create a new post and the error show up, then I when back to the forum and the new topic was created but my post count did't increased.

I will take a look in the users table where the num_posts is located

Thanks again guys for your time

For example I just tried to create a new topic, then the server takes a while to respond and when it responds it shows this:

But the topic was created because after that I visit the forum and I see the new topic there.

So this behavior is causing users to double post since they just press the reload on the browser or just try to create the topic again

I will look for more info, thank you guys for your time

after changes to your database

out of the blue, but maybe after moving databases, we use mysql. I hear somewhere it has to do with some table collation, but I am not sure.

- The problem does not happens all the time
- We have not extensions

I just got this bug when replying to a post:

An error was encountered
Error: Unable to update user.

if you reload it will cause to double post or if you go back you will see not post, but in reality the post was made.

Maybe the same is happening when making new post. I been deleting lots of double post


Anybody knows what can be causing this?

Legally, I think you can, but it's not a nice thing to do.

yeah that's not nice. even facebook developers forum keeps the punbb link

zynga also have facebook connect on punbb, nice

Can I remove punBB credentials from footer like zynga is doing?

I am keeping the topics in sync then smile

What the plugin will do:

it will let you log in into fluxBB forum with out register, and showing your personal info from facebook.

Here is an example of Vbulletin using facebook connect:

These are the ideal features for the plugin:

Facebook users will be able to receive Facebook notifications when:
There is a reply to their thread or a thread that they're subscribing to
They receive a new PM (if module installed)
News-Feed will be published on to the user's wall when the user:
Logs in for the first time
Replies to a thread
Creates a new thread
Fetch user data from Facebook
Fetch data like name, location, profile picture and use it on your forums! (NOTE: Some data may not be available for some users)

(I posted this topic a minute ago, but someone erased it, is anything wrong?)

I have some questions about the topic:

- Why Rickard sold PunBB? is he was tired with the project?

- Any body knows for how much the project was sold for?

"You are running a version of PunBB (1.2.16) that this mod does not support. This mod supports PunBB versions: 1.2.3, 1.2.4, 1.2.5, 1.2.6"

Im sure you can get it to work just fine by messing with the files, but "out of the box" this mod does not support 1.2.16/17. At least, so it says if someone tries to install it following readme.txt.

fhelikK: To make this mod "work" for 16/17, just add those numbers to line 12, in install_mod.php. Example:

// One or more versions of PunBB that this mod works on. The version names must match exactly!
$punbb_versions    = array('1.2.3', '1.2.4', '1.2.5', '1.2.6', '1.2.16', '1.2.17');

However, I dont know if this will work any good or f*ck up your forums, this code just fake mod compability to work with the new versions. If anything critical has been changed since 1.2.6, this could mess with the database.

thank you, it works pretty good with 1.2.17

if yes, what mod it is?

thank you man for your time, I will install the DB Management plugin.

My guess is that phpMyAdmin exported the characters as UTF-8 rather than latin1, which is causing the mixture of collations. wink
You'll need to use a tool like iconv to convert the file to latin1/iso-8859-1.

ok i think will try to reinstall punbb from zero.

any way what do you think are the settings when exporting from phpMyAdmin?

also is that iconv a plugin?

Smartys wrote:

Did you try importing it with the character set set via phpMyAdmin to utf8?

I did work with utf8. it restore all the caracters right. but now if i post something like "envíalo" after submit it appears "envíalo" in the forum and in the mysql table.  :-(

my is :                           'lang_encoding' =>    'iso-8859-1',

Smartys wrote:

When importing into phpMyAdmin, does it give you an option to pick the encoding? If so, pick latin1 and see if it works. If not, try picking utf8.
Like I said, exporting/importing can be tricky. wink

i just tried, but nothing, this are the images before importing and the table after importing

What about at the top of the dump? Is there a line that starts SET NAMES? If so, what does it say?

yeah this is what is there:

That's not necessarily true. It's fairly easy for a backup of latin1 data to be incorrectly called a backup of utf8 data, for example.
If you send me a copy of the dump, I can take a look at it. My email address is smartys@ this domain.

this is my dump

the data is ok, bud after importing, the characters change inside mysql table

the data is fine in the backup, i think the backup is creating the tables in a wrong way, because maybe i did export the tables wrong.

I think if I create the tables 1st, then import the data, it will be fine.

or maybe is the way i am importing

Do you have a file to create the just the tables?

i think i saw the post some where.

Example: in mysql backup file a word appears "envíalo", but after import the file into mysql using phpMyAdmin , then the same word appears like "envíalo" inside mysql table.

what I am doing wrong?

any idea any one?

thanks I just found the solution.

how to set all links in post to open in a new window? ........

Any one has an idea?
