Please add Phrase support. If it is somehow possible to use $vbphrase['name'] instead of text, please tell me. I can create phrases by myself but i need to let them call instead of the text

this would be very nice and a good improvement for multilanguage boards

When sharing a thread to Facebook and the Advanced Forum Rules plugin is enabled the thread title doesn't get picked up by the Facebook Spider. Instead the Forum Title is sent.

i.e If I share a thread with title : Test Post 1 found on Test forum to Facebook.

On facebook it reads :

X Shared Link
Test Forum
www.testforum.com/thread/test-post-1

When it should actually read :

X Shared Link
Test post 1
www.testforum.com/thread/test-post-1

Interestingly enough the blog posts are not affected and display the titles fine.

The spider displays and unknown location in WOL so I take it its been redirected to the Accept Rules page? Or something of the sort.

The workaround is to uncheck the Users Must Accept Rules to : View Forums | View Threads or set the unregistered group in the excluded list it seems to work.

And those errors are????

The dev is going to need more information in order to know what he is supposed to look for. How do we know this isn't a problem with only your site?

Hi Valter,

this is a really fine and needed mod and comes in very handy. Especially the display of the time and date, a user has accepted the rules - but may I have a suggestion?

I had to set up a whole set of rules. In particular we are talking about 7 different rules for 7 different scenarios. Let me put it in an example so the problem gets clearer: If user A accepts rule 1 but not rules 2 to 7 noone could tell which rule user A has accepted. Could be everything from rule 1 to 7. Means, he could have accepted a minor one (#3) while he disregards #1/general rules.

I would be glad you could do some changes to that so admins and mods could see, which rules a user accepted and when, and which one he disregards until now. Guess the best place to display that would be the memberprofile page, where you already placed the display of rules accepted.

What do you think about that? Any chance?

Probably better off dping a full backup if you use Cpanel. That way you ALSO backup the files instead of just the database. Since many mods here use extra files. If you are missing them and can't remember which ones you need.

Then having a full backup is much better. And with server speeds these days it takes less than 2-3 mins.

Personally I rsync off from my dedicated server to a cloud server for all my files, which also pulls my db backups that are run daily

I just can't imagine. So if user A doesn't accept that he can't troll, he's allowed to troll? Can we get a link to these 7 sets of rules?

You should be modifying phrases in the admincp, not in the xml file.

I think the best way is to use cPanel to setup a daily backup with weekly and monthly retentions and install MySQLDumper and set that up to make automatic backups. If your forum is not THAT large, you can set MySQLDumper to run every two hours or so. You can even set it up to transfer the backups to another servers of yours using FTP or just randomly download the latest backup every week or so just in case your server's HDD fails.

If you don't know how to setup cPanel/WHM cron backups... simply ask your host and I'm pretty sure they'll do it for you
