I look at the registration and login forms. I don't see Fancy stop spam.

Yes, The screenshot is from forum.neme.org. I downloaded the plugin, using this post of yours. Admittedly there is no Fancy stop spam in the settings.

We are getting a hell of a lot of spam registrations, despite the anti-spam plugins. Many of them are from email addresses such as someone@hotaka3310.itsuki54.forcemix.online the sub and sub-subdomains change but also the main domains. Banning the main domain (forcemix.online), does not work and the combination of subdomains and their IPs vary widely. I tried *.forcemix.online but it, perhaps understandably, returns an error:

The email address (e.g. user@example.com) or partial email address domain (e.g. example.com) you entered is invalid.

Does anyone know how I can block registrations from such spammers?

Thanks so much... I've installed them and will keep an eye.

I don't know, I haven't tested it.
But I looked at the pun_approval 1.4.3 code and found in it, apart from the XSS vulnerability, also a SQL injection vulnerability.
There are also logical errors when working with guests.

What extensions would you recommend to drastically reduce spam posts?

Does this work on Visman's 1.4.5?

A better way is to open manifest.xml and change the maxtestedon to 1.4.4.

Hi all is PunBB compatibel with php 7?
Is there any work done so as to make it so?

Fancy stop spam works wonders.

Only 1.3.x/1.4.x versions.

Time to update!

Fancy stop spam works wonders.

colak, Is Free Trial!
How can it help?

They actually do give it for free for open source projects. The idea is for punBB to ask for it, add the strings of both the forum software and the plugins and then ask the community to contribute in the translations.

Over at textpattern we use crowdin which is free for open source projects.

under the thread, on the right, there is a "Stick topic" link.

I don't think usernames should be allowed to change that easily. It's confusing for members of large forum communities.

Something else I am trying to do is create a 'new post' feed for a sidebar in my forums. I've looked at the Punbb guide on how to do this but it is kind of vague in its interpretation.

Is there a simple way to do this?

Hi Paul,

You could add

<!-- forum_include "http://yourforum.tld/extern-1.php" -->

in yourforum.tld/include/template/maintenance.tpl

I just thought I should add... Is there a strong reason this should not become part of the puBB vanilla code?


(115 replies, posted in Supported extensions)

It would be good to specify the minimum specs for this plugin and punBB

I could not make either work on
PHP version: 5.3.29
but everything works just fine on
PHP version: 5.4.45

I missed this one. Does it also work on punBB 1.4.4?

I am trying to add a couple of html tags to the BBCode. Based on previous versions of punBB I created the manifest.xml file below but the tags do not seem to be parsing and they still appear in their square brackets in the posts. Does anyone have an idea as to what I am doing wrong?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE extension SYSTEM "ext-1.0.dtd">

 * BBCode [del][/del] extension for PunBB forum
 * A new BBcode tag to del text.
 * @author NeMe - http://www.neme.org
 * @license GPL - http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html
 * @package pun_bbcode_del

<extension engine="1.0">
<title>BBCode [del][/del]</title>
<description>BBcode tags to delete out text, insert text and add horizontal rules.</description>
<author>NeMe - http://www.neme.org</author>

<hook id="ps_start"><![CDATA[

// tag handling function
function handle_del_tag($inputText) {
return '<del>'.$inputText.'</del>';


<hook id="ps_preparse_tags_start"><![CDATA[

// add our tag to the list
$tags[] = 'del';
$tags_opened[] = 'del';
$tags_closed[] = 'del';
$tags_inline[] = 'del';
$tags_trim[] = 'del';


<hook id="ps_do_bbcode_replace">


$pattern[] = '#\[hr /\]#i';
$replace[] = '</p><hr/><p>';
// add pattern to catch [del]blahblah[/del]
$pattern[] = '#\[del\](.*?)\[/del\]#se';
$replace[] = 'handle_del_tag(\'$1\')';


ps. This is the error I get: Warning: preg_replace_callback() [function.preg-replace-callback]: Modifier /e cannot be used with replacement callback in /path/to/my/forum/include/parser.php on line 811

In textpattern we use

<?php echo file_get_contents('http://url-of-forum.tld/extern-1.php'); ?>

to parse links to the latest posts in the forum.

Autofill is in your browser settings

Hi there

Not sure if this is still being supported but I recently upgraded to 1.4.2 and now I am getting inundated with spam. I tried installing this - no problem. However when I click the antispam in the settings I get that the page cannot be be found. I checked the path and admin.php is present but yet I still ge this 404 error.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks a lot
