Re: Deleting recalcitrant users

I have to admit that I do submit bogus email addresses from time to time.... but only because I HATE SPAM.

Sorry, but you guys sound like your trying to control a users visit.

I am a fellow web developer as well and I understand your itch but... your not the only one in the game. The public is as well. Forcing them to do certain things makes them go away...

Just food for thought

BTW - Great script Regen_8r

Re: Deleting recalcitrant users

Ive seen some scripts just today that will do exactly what we are talking about. I might try something this coming weekend and see if I can get one of those scripts incorped into the registration part. It might be worth the effort.

Re: Deleting recalcitrant users

No kidding! It would be nice, even if the registration process could tell the user that he miskeyed his e-mail address. I get e-mail from less savvy users who never got the activation key, and most of the time it's because they keyed their e-mail incorrectly.

I've seen some raw smtp scripts that can do this, it would be optimal to add a validate method to the XOOPS Mailer that would go out to the smtp server and validate the address's existence.

It would be cool to have a user admin functions that would run through the member list and detect those who had invalid e-mails and flag them as well. Then you could send a PM warning them before you whack their account.

Re: Streaming Audio Mod

The PHP Nuke´s streaming mod does not exist. It is a link to the andromeda´s web site, witch is a pay script and not modularized to phpnuke. But take a look at www.hotscripts.com. There are severals streamings scripts that could be (easely?) ported to XOOPS.

Re: Deleting recalcitrant users

I wish there was a way that the registration process would check to see if the email address was valid before they get to the point of sending out the email that never gets to the end user. I mean not like they could activate their account anyway right? But still it is annoying. I get those all the time. It might be something to think about for those of us that are still going to be using the RC3 versions of XOOPS for a while, until mods and stuff for RC4 start appearing. Any suggestions on modifying the registration script to make it so that it checks the email address to see if it is valid? I know that there are probably scripts out there now that will do it, incorporating that script is my problem

Deleting recalcitrant users

I'm looking for a quick way to delete users with invalid e-mail addresses - I suspect they create an account to register and once done, delete the account. On a mail out I usually finish up with a list of "delivery failed" messages.

Question: is there anything I should be aware of before running a simple delete query against the xx_users table, ie DELETE FROM xx_users WHERE email = "nuisance@hotmail.com" ?

TIA

Streaming Audio Mod

Are there any Streaming Audio mod's for Xoops? I know there is one for PHPNuke, but is there one for xoops? If not, It would be nice if one is made. Cuz I am starting a Streaming Radio station called The Sims Online HQ Radio, and the site, The Sims Online HQ, is gonna be made using XOOPS. And the station needs to be played right o the site.

Is this possible?

Is it possible to have other domains on the same server share the same database. Would this cause a big problem?

If so how about a seperate database for web links. They take
so much time to do so being able to share them would be a great way to save time...

Re: Xoops2 Sniffer

onokazu,
Thanks for taking the time to look at that. I think you are right, PHP would be the better choice (for those pesky people who turn off JS... like me ).
Thanks for the link.

I'm sure that some time between Xoops2 and XoopsFinal, I will take the time to re-write this for the Feature Request forum. I know you all have bigger fish to fry at the present time.
Thanks again.

Re: Xoops2 Sniffer

No, there still will be no standardized browser sniffing codes in XOOPS2, but only in some parts we try to detect if the client is using IE or not before adding some IE specific http header variables.

I see that those links you've suggested are all javascript codes, so include/xoopsjs.php might be the right file to include the codes, if you need to do a site-wide sniffing.

You can also consider using native PHP functions like get_browser() or simply looking at the values of $HTTP_USER_CLIENT the client sends to the server.

By the way, I have come into the following script when I was searching for a good php sniffer script some time ago, and it looked very good.
