Yes, just remove all files which are located in cache/ folder (which is located in the root of your PunBB forum) except .htaccess and index.html.

Thank you!

I manually delete all files except .htaccess and cache is clean, and i I do not need the plugin pun_admin_clear_cache. right?

My own forum was completely swamped with SEO spam and I constantly get several new spammers signed up every day, just because punBB is known to be allowing SEO spam like this. Fixing it is very easy though and I have just corrected it on my own forum.

Assuming you have version 1.3.5, just follow these steps:

1. Open the file include/parser.php
2. Find line number 609, which will look like this: return '<a href="'.$full_url.'">'.$link.'</a>';
3. Change it to: return '<a href="'.$full_url.'" rel="nofollow">'.$link.'</a>';
4. Save and upload your modified script.

This will add rel="nofollow" to URLs in posts and signatures. You may need to reapply it when you update though. If you have an earlier version, you should either update or you will just have to find where the line is located in your version yourself. It belongs to the handle_url_tag function.

A plea to the development team: please add this permantly!  smile

And for 1.4.2 version? thank you

hy, i install pun_admin_clear_cache (v1.1.5) but i don't see the link on the footer on any pages.

the extension works good because at the time of installation She delete my chace! Unfortunately she does not show the link in the footer of any pages, and if I want to clear the cache I have to uninstall and reinstall the extension.

My punbb is 1.4.2 with Oxigen theme.

thank you
