Re: Newbb 4.3

As a moderator at two newbb forums (including xoops.org) I really would like to have some more tools. In rare cases you suffer from one spam user posting dozens of spam postings at one day. Removing them is very time consuming now, as you have to do this one by one.

* I'd like to have the option to remove a user, make a ban and remove all posts he made in one pass.

* Suspending a user only is possible in the sub-forum you catch him and press the moderate button. More logical is to suspend a user within all forums.

* In moderation management the option to remove a user does not work (it's now called "Remove unselected users" btw )

curently it is not possible in one click but you dont need to delete the posts one by one and have some options:
to delete a user posts page by page see this link (available when you click on the user posts):

modules/newbb/viewpost.php?uid=XXXXXX&status=active#admin

Anyway, IMO deleting all user posts by one click is possible if we find a way to show all posts in one page.

to ban a user from all forums use this link (available in viewforum.php admin mode just for newbb admin):
modules/newbb/moderate.php
or better this link:
modules/newbb/moderate.php?forum=0

a moderator just have all permissions in his forum or forums and can ban a user in them one by one.

There is no option in moderatation management to delete a user. that "Remove unselected users" means it will hide the unselected users from selectable menu just for better view.(it seems it needs some clarification)

btw, the moderation management (moderate.php file) need many more improvements.


Also Im against of having an option to remove a user in newbb. You can do it in xoops core. newbb is a forum and it is not its duty to handle user accounts.

Also the moderator should not have that privilege to delete a user account.
moderator have all permissions in his forum and not more.

This newbb still have a very important bug in deleting posts and topics. It has this issue in 3.08 too. (honestly i found many bugs in 4.3 that has not been solved in 3.08 and moved to 4.3)
sometimes it will delete posts and topics completely from database but instead it should set the approve value to -1 and admin can see the deleted posts and topics in deleting area after delete.

i still work on this big issue.

Re: Newbb 4.3

There seems to be two versions, one from irmtfan and another from alfred. This is very confusing, since you guys loving doing what you are doing why not work together? Save us time in not having to test the module twice.

NOW: Which version and from whom should i USE?

Re: Newbb 4.3

The official version is Alfred branch. use this branch for production websites.

irmtfan branch (my version) is more a experimental and personal version.
I try to make a full div templates for newbb and i find many bugs.

honestly there were many many bugs in newbb unsolved for at least 7 or 8 years (forever bugs ) and i try to solved them one by one.

for example deleting/restoring and pending/approve feature in newbb have too many bugs and cannot be used at all. If you need this feature you should know newbb have this bug from version 3.08 until now.

all my changes van be found in detailed changelog files and each and every difference is recognized by "irmtfan" word.
I hope Alfred could review and add those solutions.

So it is up to you to use it or leave it.

Re: Newbb 4.3

There is a bug in viewforum.php in 'since' value.
If since is set to 0 (from the beginning) in pagenav there is no since.

Work only if set 365 or other number.

I can see the selection box at the bottom of viewforum.php page when the since=0 (from the beginning)
I dont have this issue in Alfred and irmtfan branch latest revisions.
please let us know more.

mrphilong:
is that a new installation or an upgrade?
It seems you dont set permissions for "view"
set the permissions wisely in newbb -> admin -> permissions
i wrote a readme:
http://xoops.svn.sourceforge.net/view ... evision=10073&view=markup

Re: Newbb 4.3

Did a "Tables maintenance" on newbb fixed the issue.
Quote:

ANALYZE TABLE analyzes and stores the key distribution for a table. During the analysis, the table is locked with a read lock.
CHECK TABLE checks a table or tables for errors.
OPTIMIZE TABLE to reclaim the unused space and to defragment the data file.
REPAIR TABLE repairs a possibly corrupted table.


I found other errors:

NoticeUndefined variablemenumode in file /modules/newbb/viewtopic.php line 565
Notice
Undefined variablemenumode_other in file /modules/newbb/viewtopic.php line 566

Re: Newbb 4.3

it is very strange to me that you need to repair the tables.
Is that an upgrade? from which version?

those are just some notices and are not important.
Anyway irmtfan branch have not any issue as far as i and my community can find.
today i update and fix some bugs. (mostly issues in displaying and redirect)

Now newbb is ready for a full div template.
i will release that full div template set tomorrow.
demo is my site: http://www.jadoogaran.org/modules/newbb/index.php
this full div template set just worked with irmtfan branch because the other branches can not read css and js files from template set.
Also just work with IE8+. FF, chrome, safari and opera have not issue.
