I recently had several hundred spammer posts on version 1.3.2. Wasn't happy with built in moderation for removing this surge of posts so I went into the 'posts' table through phpmyadmin and deleted the spam posts.

I ran 'Rebuild index' through Admin, but my post count is still off.

Is there another utility for getting correct post counts or another step I'm missing? Any reccomendations appreciated.

More Info:
section at bottom of forum shows: 356 posts
'posts' table shows: 40 posts


PunBB 1.3.2
Operating system: Linux
PHP: 5.2.5
MySQL Standard 4.1.22

Awhile back I installed PunBB 1.3.2 while server was configured for PHP 4.4.8. Just modified .htaccess to enable PHP 5.2.5 which has resulted in several errors.

1) was not able to access extensions section through admin. I had to revert to PHP 4.4.8 and uninstall extensions then go back to PHP 5.2.5, reinstall the hotfixes and 'antispam' extension.

2) The CAPTCHA image is not displaying now after going back to PHP 5.2.5.  The URL for the CAPTCHA image is: http://scas.abuxton.com/PunBB1.3.2/exte … a1bedc080e

3) I'm getting errors on login page just under the password form field:
Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/tmp/sess_548b7bb78ac746950c65d3cbe22c4b80, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /home/.../public_html/PunBB1.3.2/login.php(433) : eval()'d code on line 13

ALSO, at the bottom of the login page

open(/tmp/sess_548b7bb78ac746950c65d3cbe22c4b80, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in Unknown on line 0

Any Advice is greatly appreciated

Around line 258 of extend.php, under list item <li>
Add     "echo $item['description'];"  with whatever formatting you'd like to extend topic message.

Figured I'd share in case anyone else was interested. tongue

working for 1.3.2?
reference website for implementation?

Hey gang,
Info on that page appears to be a bit outdated. I'm looking for a way to extend the entire contents of posts within a given forum. Just like what appears to be going on here at punbb.informer.com

as you can see here: http://suncoastaviansociety.org/
I've been able to get the post title extended.

Hope to hear from someone soon.

Hello Everyone,
is there a resource/how-to guide for using extern.php?
