There is a thing you should remember while upgrading. After owerwritting files verify that .../cache, .../img/avatars and .../extensions (for pun_repository) directories have enough write permissions (usually 777).

do we really have to give this permission (777) ? I updated my forum using ""updated files only package", and run the "database update" as requested. Everything worked fine while all the directories you mentioned above (except img/avatars) were in 755.

Should I change those directories' permission into 777 now? or I can just let it as is?

thank you, but i have the same problem, i changed what u said to me but the same problem: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /homepages/20/d257650213/htdocs/mixcelebs/extensions/sitemap/functions.php on line 41

so, what is that "htdocs" ? Well, I probably am missing something, but "htdocs" usually refer to directory within local server

I have a question about this extension, where can you view the sitemap? I installed the extension, but I cannot find the sitemap anywhere.

you can view it from this address, "yourdomain.com/sitemap.xml"

how u did to install this extension, for me i have everytime the same problem, i need sitemap for my forum.:(

help us Mr.Garciat

i believe it has nothing to do with Php4 or Php5, it is just because you install it in local server. IMHO

I use this extension in both php4 and php5

For changing post-links you need to add parameters to function forum_link, when links created (It happened in 12 forum files). I think the easiest way to do this changes - make an extension. Change code of core is not a good way for this.

yes, i do think so. changing any part of core is not my choice. so, we are wishing somebody to create an extension.

I personally think that this is kinda important for SEO reason.  At least I dont want people refer (link) to any of post using different links. smile

i think, instead of asking any fee to personal users, it is better to offer some "vip" service. I'm thinking of something like "hosting", "installation service", "custom development" etc.

and leave what is currently free as free, or else user will potentially leave away (to fluxbb or perhaps even to vbulletin).

I personally think that it is fine to keep the donation open.

I remember a forum software (Invision Board) which was free to use at the beginning, the developer than start to charge users.

Will this happen to punbb? or will punbb adopt automattic (wordpress) business model?

edit reason:
it should be Invision Board, not SMF hmm

it doesn't work utchin. The result become:


even if it works, the structure will still be different with "topic' SEF" structure because "topic SEF" structure started with 'topic' instead of 'post'

that article is about "how to enable url_rewrite". It is not what I need since I have already had SEF work for me (please take a look at my forum: http://forums.pipholic.com)

I just need to tweak SEF url for post so that it forms similar to SEF url for Topic

to make you clear, take this topic in which we are talking for example:

"SEF URL for post" for this post (reply) is:

while "SEF URL for this Topic" is:
http://punbb.informer.com/forums/topic/ … -for-post/

both forms are different and I want to change the 'SEF URL for Post" in to:
http://punbb.informer.com/forums/topic/ … t/#p119548

You are the community, and it is in your hands too.

If it was in my hands, I would of voted against the punbb.informer.com domain name change wink

Remember one thing Anatoly, this is Open Source.

I wish you and your programmers the best, and I hope that Pun lives on.

As I know Open Source is about the code, not how it is funded. I think all open source developer face this funding problem (dilemma). Failling on this will bring the development into a dead end and subsequently hurt users.

is there anybody who really want to work without any rewards? i dont think so. Even if there is any, I bet they will work as they want disregarding users needs.

Open Source is completely exciting for any programmer (web developer) but not  really that exciting for users

no offense, but the main reason I choosed punbb was because I saw a promise of a serious and well-directed development.

anyone? please neutral

i like that thermodynamics thing :LOL:

i use file based (fancy) SEF URL. How can I change specific post SEF url from:




both 7 and 8 are just example of topic and post number. Basically I would like to have "post SEF URL" in a structure similar to "topic SEF url" (with additional #p)

any help would really be appreciated smile

i notice that 'group' feature in 1.3 core is missing a simple and basic thing: user-group management. I'm talking about the ability of admin to change user group manually and also the "multigroup" ability as Bach needs.

nevertheless, I'm happy with 1.3 tongue

I'm considering to dissable forum-email and currently looking for how to do that smile

Of course it's cool to let member send email directly from my board, but what about 'spam' activities that it might cause? Let's say I have 100+ members and none of them thinking to use forum-email for spamming. So it's good ..huh?

What if someday they all use this feature simultaneously? Won't that means there are 100+ emails sent simultaneously from my hosting-server IP? Won't it risk my IP (hosting server IP) to be noted as spam IP by gmail (for example)?

those are questions in my head. I probably wrong about how exactly the "forum email" work. Therefore, any geek suggestion would really be appreciated smile

I'm little confused here.
If I understand it well, 777 mean that everyone have full permissions on file.
On the other hand 755 mean that Group (what ever this is) and World (as I understand it was literally anyone), do not have write permissions on folder/file.
Why more permissions make the problem?

pun_repository intentionally sets permissions to 777. This enables users to delete downloaded files manually (for example, via FTP)

Giving 777 permissions so user can manually delete files look little bit strange to me.
I can't figure situation where I will give ftp (or any other kind of direct access) to any user (owner of site of course have access via cpanel, FTP or some other way depending on provider).

me too. Won't this become security issue?
