any update on this?

I removed html but it's still defaulting to 15 entries.

Yeah it's been about 4 years since I last implemented extern.php - forgot the instructions were in there. Thank you. smile

however, I have an issue:

  • /extern.php?action=feed&type=html&show=5 does not limit the output to 5 items (as I assumed it would?)

If that's not how you limit the number of entries, then what is?

How is this used differently in 1.3 vs. 1.2.x? I'm erroring when trying to display messages from one of the subforums on the front page of my site.


nevermind.. got it working by copying my other config over.

going from 1.2 to 1.3.2 has broken extern.php for me. how is this handled differently in 1.3.2?


updated from 1.2.x to 1.3 and was in maintenance mode.

updated the db, and it said I was in maintenance mode.

read this post, and accidently overwrote the new config with my old one.

i'm looking at my config file from another installation.. can I copy that over and change the info?

Well this will all be solved once I switch over 1.3 full time anyway. smile

thanks tho!

you can try what I did:

- drop all the tables from your database
- delete all the files from the site
- reupload the files
- go to /install.php and install
- do NOT check "install pun_repository" when installing
- download 1.2.2 of pun_repository and upload and enable it in the Extensions area

Hi Anatoly, I completely missed your response.

Unverified is my default group, which gives read-only access.

Hmm.. it seems the 1.3 release needs to be changed to install the latest pun_repository then.


Hey all,

I'm currently running 1.3 on a subdomain hosted by Dreamhost to mess around with it.

Everything installed correctly, and I checked the box to install the pun_repository extension.

After logging in and going to Administration > Extensions, I get an error up top:

Warning: include(../extensions/pun_repository/lang/English/pun_repository.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [my site URL]/admin/extensions.php(862) : eval()'d code on line 13

then right after the pun_repository extension, I get this:

Warning: include(../extensions/pun_repository/lang/English/pun_repository.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [my site URL]/admin/extensions.php(1024) : eval()'d code on line 13

There is no lang/English folder in the extensions/pun_repository folder, hence the errors.

BTW, did you successfully solved the initial problem? :-)

The tool works as it should (it was my misunderstanding of how it works).

However, the problem still remains that newly registered users are shown as being in either the "Unverified" or "Member" group when they should just be listed in the "Unverified" group when I sort and display them in the User list.

I know right?

FluxBB, here I come..


A little update.

So usually 4-5 spambots sign up at a time, and since running that plugin, usually 1 of the 4 that sign up are marked as Unverified (the rest are marked as Members).

I had a friend sign up, and she was marked as a Member - but she couldn't post or do anything. So really she was set as Unverified, but the userlist has her as Member.

However, when she used the PM mod and messaged me, it set her to Unverified in the user list.

So.. although a new user is listed as a Member, they're still in the Unverified group and can't post - which is good. But something weird is still going on.

Hey all,

Using 1.2.19.

To stop the influx of spammers I've been receiving, I setup an Unverified group as the default with no posting access. Everything was fine.

Then I used the User Management plugin (1.3) and:

Prune by: Registered date
Minimum days since registration/login: 7
Maximum number of posts: 1
Delete admins and mods: No
User status: Delete only verified

with the above, it deleted over 100, but there was only 5 in the last 7 days. Switching user status from Delete only verified to Delete any deleted more.

Essentially it deleted anyone with a 0 post count, which is a separate problem, but it caused the problem below.

My problem is now new users are suddenly not put into Unverified - they are put into Members, which gives them access to post.

I've deleted the Unverified group and created the same group - same problem.

I've deleted that group and changed the name to something else and made it the default group - still puts new users into Members.

It should be noted that I can manually change their group from Members to Unverified.


Thanks Paul. I'm surprised no one has come up with one yet.

I'm not a fan of having Google ads for registered users, but I'll gladly show them to guests - hence the need for 2 styles.

I would expect it to be in the user group area, editing Guests. but there isn't an option to pick the style for guests.

I must be blind because I'm not seeing where I can setup a slightly different template for guests vs. users.

Can someone point me to this info? Thanks!

Cool. Any luck with this? I've been wanting to do the same with my board since I also have a Reinvigorate account. Do you have any code examples? Thanks!

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var re_name_tag = "<?php
    echo $pun_user['username'];

Hmm.. ok so new topics works, but recently active still doesn't. 

Can anyone test this out with their forum?
