Vševedko, I have the same in Firefox 1.51. You have to use left mouse click and write e-mail, at the same time :-)

Re: Multi-Forum Mod for PunBB v1.0 RC2

latheesan, how about making moderators etc. from Administration Panel ? Maybe use File Editor plugin 1.1 from http://forums.punbb.org/viewtopic.php?id=10226 ? But there is problem because your script use the same files for all forums sad

Re: Multi-Forum Mod for PunBB v1.0 RC2

Making moderators for what?

From the MAI (Mod Admin Interface), you are suppose to cotrol how the mod it self functions. Making moderators etc... is done within a hosted forum (e.g. anime_forums), no?

Use "File Editor plugin 1.1" to achieve what? I dont quite understand...

Re: Multi-Forum Mod for PunBB v1.0 RC2

I get a 403 error when logging into the mod_admin/login.php.
I've done CHMOD's and installed.

Also another question if I was to install it into my root dir would I chmod public_html to 777?

403 means "Forbidden" access to files in the dir. I dont think my mod is generating that error. Its something to do with your server/hosting package. Please read this small article to know more about it and how to fix it - http://www.checkupdown.com/status/E403.html

Also another question if I was to install it into my root dir would I chmod public_html to 777?

Yes, you will have to CHMOD public_html root folder to 777, and no there isn't any security risks, as far as i know.

Well, I have a suggestions:
- The main (first) page with directory index of all created forums
- on the main (first) page link to "Create new forum"
- multi-lingual (I am from Slovakia and I need very much!)
- Statistics : most active forums (top "x" forums), newest forums, most active member, newest posts - everything this on the main page
- God-admin (me :-))) could have rights to login into all forums and makes any changes
- God-Admin can delete old forums that have been posted on for x number of days
- God-Admin can delete old forums that have not be logged in by forum admin, since they of been register for x no of days

Yes, nice idea, i already am working on something like this

Vševedko wrote:

This wont be a problem for the end-user side, because, all you have to do is upload the language files and your hosted forum's members can choose the language them selves. The problem is the mod_admin section. I only speak english, so i cant write a language system for the mod_admin section.

Vševedko wrote:

Yes, once again, nice idea, im working on something similar to this wink

Vševedko wrote:

Im not so sure about this, because, i can easily provide the admin logins to all hosted forums, but the paswords are saved as md5 hash, so it will be difficult to have this feature. But dont worry, i will work something out at the end big_smile

Vševedko wrote:

Yes, very useful and nice idea. Will work on this too.

Vševedko wrote:

Erm, this feature is similar to above, but i will probably implement this feature anyway smile (if i can that is).

Thanks for the ideas. Keep em comming big_smile.

Re: Multi-Forum Mod for PunBB v1.0 RC2

Well, another ideas:
-  ability to place adverts at the top and bottom of every forum, and after first post
- ability to turn off/on single/all forums for upgrading
- caching for forums
- mass e-mailing to all/some admins

If you do this it will be great and I will install this mod immediately! cool

Ability to place adverts after first post only or after every post is already done in v1.0. The only place i missed was Top & Bottom area. I will work on this too on V2.0

Vševedko wrote:

This is somewhat interesting feature. I will look into it later and do it.

Vševedko wrote:

Caching forums feature already exists, per forum also big_smile. Download and install v1.0 mod and test run it. When u create a forum called "demo" for e.g. go to -> /forum_root/demo/cache <<<--- caching per hosted forum

Vševedko wrote:

Mass emailing feature is already available in v1.0. Im planning on making "single mail" feature for v2.0

Re: Multi-Forum Mod for PunBB v1.0 RC2

Looks like a very nice project, I'm eager to see the next versions.
May I suggest you do not create a new directory for each forum inside the root /forumname/ but rather do this inside a /cache/forumname/ directory.
When many forums are created it can be a pain to browse through the ftp.
A directory would be great and possibly more admin options :
- Turn off ads per forum
- Deactivate a particular forum
- Rename a forum
- Search for forums (no drop down, and have the forums listed at max 50 per page)
- Search forums for forbidden words (eg: warez)
- Url rewrite + Url based forum selection not cookie

Great job up to now, keep up the good work !

Thanks ping wink

If i dont put the forumid folders inside /forumroot/ and instead put it inside /forumroot/cache/, all the new forum's url would look like this:
http://www.site.com/forumroot/cache/board_name (which is long and doesnt look nice sad)

Turn off ads per form is a nice idea, i will work on that.

Btw, i finished making 'De-Activate / Re-Activate a particular forum' feature in v2  big_smile

P.s. sorry for the delay in v2 release, im stuck with lots of college hw sad

Re: Multi-Forum Mod for PunBB v1.0 RC2

You may want to have a look at this GPL phpbb hosting script and look at the way it handles all the admin fonctions its done quite well.
Maybe you may find some interesting ideas smile
