i've managed to get the mbc2 mod installed without errors (had to do some tinkering with what strings it was looking for) but now it does NOTHING.

is there some kind of permission i forgot to set? i just can't believe that i managed to hack together a mod fix that installs cleanly yet does nothing.

i'm running SP 1.4, btw.

thanks in advance.

[quote author=buddybuddha link=1101777086/0#0 date=1101777086]Well I recently was found doing a little test board and I saw that the following mods seem to work flawlessly with no modification whatsoever:

[url=http://www.boardmod.org/mods.php?dl=160&filename=file_attachment.zip]DaveB's File Attachement Mod 2.3[/url]

...
[/quote]

I have been trying to install the file attachment 2.3 mod on a sp 1.4 board, but boardmod spits various search string errors. Even the first line that is searched for in YaBB.cgi:

use CGI qw(header cookie);      # so we can use the header and cookie printing

cannot be found. Indeed, nothing resembling this line can be found in the sp 1.4 version of Yabb.cgi. I don't understand how the quoted poster could have installed with "no modification at all". Can anyone help me with this? I am upgrading from sp 1.1 to 1.4.

Has anyone got Recent Users List 1.4 to work?

I can work out most of the changes needed, but I get totally stuck with the changes to the loginOut.pl file. Is this just too complicated to fix?

Just trying the same thing - not yet successful. But I think, it can be done. Have a look at post #38 on: 15.01.05 at 23:32  in this thread. oggols04 has installed several mods. On his list we find
"44 Recent Users list "
Stay tuend...

We are asked to
"Search for this in Sources\LogInOut.pl:
     $yySetCookies1 = cookie(-name    =>   "$cookieusername",

                       -value   =>   "$username",

                       -path    =>   "/",

                       -expires =>   "$ck{'len'}");

The only position, where I find this in the entire package YaBB_1Gold_SP1.4_cgi is in the file "Load.pl".

So if I apply the change here...


... some 10 minutes and some grey hairs later ...

It works!!!

@Ralf & @thecaretaker


sorry I don't have my mod in front of me at the moment but looking at my loginout.pl this should do it for you.

you just need to look for functions that do basicly the same thing as the old version (yabb 1.3) and mod them.


step 6
search for
Code
Select All
	## usage: &UpdateCookie ("delete or write",<userid>,<password>,<session>,<path>,<expiration>); ##
	&UpdateCookie("write","$username","$password","$cryptsession","/","$ck{'len'}");
	&LoadUserSettings;
	if ($maintenance && $settings[7] ne 'Administrator') {$username = 'Guest'; &fatal_error($txt{'774'});}
	&WriteLog;
	&redirectinternal;
}
 



and add before
Code
Select All
	#RECENT USERS LIST MOD START
	if ($username ne 'Guest')
	{
		&RecentUsersList;
	}
	#RECENT USERS LIST MOD END 



step 7
search for
Code
Select All
	## usage: &UpdateCookie ("delete or write",<userid>,<password>,<session>,<path>,<expiration>); ## 



and added before
Code
Select All
	#RECENT USERS LIST MOD START
	if ($username ne 'Guest')
	{
		&RecentUsersList;
	}
	#RECENT USERS LIST MOD END 



i think that should solve the loginout.pl issues for you.
if this doen't work let me know and i'll be sure to check my mod file when I get home.

Still learning,

File attachment mod & reply #47
Reply #55 - Mar 9th, 2005 at 9:35am

Hiello all.
I have been reading all the messages about file attachment mod for SP1.4 Gold and agree with those who are still having problems  even with the latest Beta version of the mod. In trying to analyse where the problem lies I find the board gives the 'Server Error' message once Subs.pl is uploaded to the server. With all other uploads, but without Subs.pl the board displays the file attachment stuff, but  as one would expect, it doesn't allow posts, stating that the subject box has not been filled in (fair enough). Obviously my question is the same as for the others who have problems - how do we get it to work? The changes in Subs.pl from basic SP1.4 to the modified version are significant, so it doesn't seem to be a question of a 'quick' fix. I would just add that I have not added any other mods to my version of SP1.4 I downloaded and that otherwise the forum works very well, so the mod doesn't work for me even against the most basic, untouched SP 1.4 version.
Hope someone can help, as I really need this mod to work. Thanks. (and sorry for the long post).

Thanks very much for such a prompt reply.
I used the B3.0i version, with Boardmod 2.5.4 under WinXP. It ran with no errors (B3.0h had 11 errors), so I uploaded the modified files to the server (using AceFTP3), and then changed the admin stuff, which was when I discovered the mod seemed screw up the forum. I guess it is possible I didn't set the admin parameters quite right, though I thought I had at the time. Could this have caused such a problem?
Thanks.

Maybe the path setting is wrong, that might cause some trouble...

Thanks again for your input. I checked the paths and found nothing wrong, but decided to upload everything again and it - almost - burst into life! The forum now allows an attachment to be uploaded, and when vieweing the post it shows it as being there, and with my FTP program I can see it actually is there, but neither IE6 nor Mozilla (RedHat) will allow the attachment to be viewed or downloaded. The paths to the /yabbattach directory are:

/httpdocs (chmod 755) - the main html directory.
/httpdocs/yabbattach (chmod 777) - the attachment directory.
(I have no chmod control above the /httpdocs directory)

In Preferences and Settings:

Attachments Directory: /home/httpd/vhosts/raes-fsg.org.uk/httpdocs/yabbatach

Attachments URL: http://www.raes-fsg.org.uk/httpdocs/yabbatach

Auto Rename is set on
file size limit = 500
Attachment dir size limit=20000
extensions allowed=jpg gif bmp doc txt wpd tif
file extension check is on
display picture attachments is on
allow file attaching is on
allow guests is off

IE6 gives the error:

Not Found
The requested document was not found on this server.

Is it me, or is it my hosting service provider?

Thanks once again for your time.
