"Everytime I edit a post..."

I mean, the post should be posted (:P) when I click on [Publish]. But if I edit the post -lets say, I change the subject or correct a typo- then another topic is created on PunBB... and I don't think that's the expected behavior.

Hmm, I've got a little question, to the people that are using this...

Everytime I edit a post in WordPress (and save the changes), the plugin publishes a new post in PunBB. Is there a way to disable this?

Actually what I'd really like, is a unique login for both, I didn't wanted to register there just for the hacks and support... but I had to.

Stahn: just do what Rickard suggests in this post. It fixed that error for me.

Thank you so much! It did worked smile

I'm getting this error when posting, and I don't know what to do:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare unregister_globals() (previously declared in /home/httpd/vhosts/*/httpdocs/universe/wp-settings.php:4) in /home/httpd/vhosts/*/httpdocs/universe/forums/include/functions.php on line 1034

The post is made on WordPress but doesn't creates a topic in the forum.

I'm not saying that I don't like this feature, I just want to know why the devs of PunBB did this, since most of the other Forum packages uses the subject of the topic in the Forum Index.

Yep, that's Threaded View, and I hate it.

Please don't hurry a release of the next version, the most important thing is to make a fully stable release. Keep on the good work, I love PunBB.

RSS is coming along nicely. Opera, Firefox and IE7 have this function, click on the Feed Icon the URL bar, and you have you new feed.

On the software side, all blogs have this function, WordPress, Blogger, etc.; and some forums, as vBulletin or Invision Power Board. Other free forum software already have this function, as Eblah or Vanilla.

Since it's only one line I think this should be added in the stable releases.

Anyways, XHTML 1.0 Strict or 1.1 doesn't allow that. Period.

Thanks a lot.
A pretty easy mod, I also deleted everything inside the other <label> tag (with the email text box), tested a little and everything seems to work fine, don't know about the database, though.
I'll try a harder test later.

First, thanks for your reply.

1. Permissions can disable the email

Yes, but doesn't "erases" or "hides" the Email text box.

2. I think that you can change that in the language file

And... what file? Checked post.php but doesn't has anything like an empty field.

I'll repeat what I want: When a Guest user clicks on 'Post Reply', the Name field should be previously filled with the word 'Anonymous'. If they want to delete that and put some other text, it's their option.

Which means you can't include via a URL smile

So... I can't do it any other way? I insist with the fact that don't know PHP or SQL.

u have to get the wp mod that allows php inside of it.
wordpress doesnt allow php inside it.

The code in the sidebar is outside the WP Loop. If use other PHP functions, they work fine. Iframes is out of the question, I absolutely hate them.

It's obviously written in my sidebar code, I won't put the address to my site unless it's absolutely necessary.

Keep pressed Ctrl+Shift when clicking the URL.

Let me say first that I don't know anything about PHP or SQL, I learn by trial and error.

What I want:

Things that I really need:
- First, get rid of the Email when posting as a "Guest". It's completely useless.
- Second, that the Name field defaults as 'Anonymous'.

This is how it should be when a Guest user clicks on Post Reply/New Topic

Things that I really don't need =P:

- Disable lots of things on viewtopic.php if a Guest user is, well, viewing a topic, like: Post, From and Registered fields

So, any help appreciated.

I did read the extern.php file but simply, it doesn't show the posts.

I'm using this code on my WP Sidebar:

<?php include('http://*/forums/extern.php?action=new&show=6'); ?>

... and nothing is displayed.

This info might help, I'm running on PHP 4.3.2 with Safe Mode and allow_url_fopen to Off.

I think it might have been posted but I couldn't find it.

My suggestion is move the post link from the date to the post number like vBulletin does.

Example: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=42918

Just that, I "think" it's common sense to do it this way, but then again I haven't made a complete analysis of this tongue
