It would be handy if you'd specify how much posts do you expect on your forum. You get to hundreds of MBs only if you have forum with tens of thousand post wink

Real posts count extension changes PunBB's post counter so that it will lower the post count when post is deleted.

//Note: Extension recounts users posts when installed

Are you sure you're using salt from the right user?

@kagaku: Well if that won't help, you may always try captcha tongue

They won't google this big_smile

Ok, so if I haven't done any typo then

changing this (line 187)

    \'SELECT\'    => \'a.rate, t.subject as topicsubj, p.topic_id, u.email, u.title, u.url, u.location, u.signature, u.email_setting, u.num_posts, u.registered, u.admin_note, p.id, p.poster AS username, p.poster_id, p.poster_ip, p.poster_email, p.message, p.hide_smilies, p.posted, p.edited, p.edited_by, g.g_id, g.g_user_title, o.user_id AS is_online\',

to this

    \'SELECT\'    => \'a.rate, t.subject as topicsubj, p.topic_id, u.email, u.title, u.url, u.location, u.signature, u.email_setting, u.num_posts, u.registered, u.admin_note, u.avatar, u.avatar_width, u.avatar_height, p.id, p.poster AS username, p.poster_id, p.poster_ip, p.poster_email, p.message, p.hide_smilies, p.posted, p.edited, p.edited_by, g.g_id, g.g_user_title, o.user_id AS is_online\',

and this (line 278)

                            $forum_page[\'avatar_markup\'] = generate_avatar_markup($cur_post[\'poster_id\']);

to this

                            $forum_page[\'avatar_markup\'] = generate_avatar_markup($cur_post[\'poster_id\'], $cur_post[\'avatar\'], $cur_post[\'avatar_width\'], $cur_post[\'avatar_height\'], $cur_post[\'poster\']);

in manifest.xml should do the trick smile

BTW this will make the extension crash on 1.3. so I suggest re-release it after these changes wink
BTW2 for this code to work you have to completely reinstall the extension, since it does create new file wink I haven't checked the code, but if it stores anything in db you'll have to backup that, or do manually changes in file ./toprated.php

@Dr. Deejay: $img_size was defined in the if statement (it's not really common, but you can do that).

@KeyDog: It isn't bug, but little incompatibility of this extension with 1.4.1. smile Information about avatars width / height are now stored in database, instead of counting each time when rendering.

//If I'll have some time to spare in the evening I might fix that, but you may try as well tongue You can find variables you need in punbb_users table wink

Hi,

What reason do you have for deleting Anonymous user? If you want to hide forum for unregistered users you can do that in Administration > Start > Forums > (Edit forum), where you can disable Guest's rights for reading wink

And being worried about this error message, that it compromises security, when you speak about open source big_smile That's kinda non sense, don't you think? smile

Hi,

look in source code of Akismet extension. It creates another page in "Managment" section. It should give you some clue smile

@KeyDog: Yep, I'm also glad for dimkalinux and hcs, but they aren't Informer employees, are they?

@KeyDog: Yea, that smiley is nice big_smile They even had a blog post about that. Though I don't blame them. Automattic created one of the most successful open source CMS in the world, it's still better than some company which buys open source forum and after some time leaves it without support (guess which Russian company do I have on mind? tongue)

They are a bit too much in ones face about money (sad smiley face when giving 0$ & priority on paid accounts) and getting an API from them... (granted: because of their popularity!) I hope we can implement a solution that a.) doesn't need an API (like URL Checker extension)

But they are still free for personal blogs, so I don't think forum could be much different. Quite active forum might get how much? 500 posts a day? If we check only users with less than 10 posts it could be how many? 20, 30 request a day? That (I bet) is still in their free plan smile

I'm little bit short on time (ok, and a quite a bit lazy too big_smile), so I can't tell you whether I'm gonna alter my cash extension, but most of 1.3 extensions work on 1.4.1 as well, so I suggest you to give it a try smile (and if you eventually send me feedback on what's wrong it might encourage me to fix it... big_smile)

Check ./include/functions.php, function cookie_login() wink

Why reinvent the wheel? Akismet does this with much better accuracy and we already have extension for it. (btw Rich Pedley's version still works, though I'd recommend to use the one I posted at the end of topic, since Rich wasn't here for two years...)

I've checked the extension whether is still compatible with 1.4.1 and since it is, I've just made few small changes and here's the "new" version.

Changelog:

Haven't really done any changes as it wasn't necessary, just changed <maxtestedversion> to 1.4.1

It is not possible by default, but this extension might work smile

Hi,

you might try to check KeyDog's extension directory, although I don't remember ever seeing such extension. This isn't really common task.

But you of course can always use PhpMyAdmin or Adminer to change author name (and his id) directly in database wink

@epicguy11: Being little more specific could be handy... For example which versions of PunBB and PhpBB you tried to convert? Did it write some kind of error? What was the output of operation (did it write 100% to all despite doing anything, or some FATAL error, blank page... etc.?)

Less CSS ftw tongue

It's possible that SFS servers were down, when the user posted the message (extension waits max 10 seconds for SFS servers to respond)
