xx Upgrading old forum from SMF 1.1 to current version - Help please

April 19, 2019, 02:18:52 PM by nwflyboy
I have (or rather I should say I had) a forum running for years on SMF 1.1 (RC2).  Yes, I know that's old, deprecated, not secure, etc.  Mea Culpa.
Last weekend, my hosting service finally pulled the plug on PHP5 (which it had been using) and now requires PHP7-compatibility.  Not surprisingly, my forum stopped running.
So now I'd like to (and have to) move to the current release of SMF.

My forum is currently offline but (AFAIK) "intact" though obviously not functioning (I've downloaded all of it so components are preserved locally).

Ideally, I'd like to get the existing forum updated to current bits, while preserving all user content (existing user accounts and their posts).

I had customized my forum with TP (TinyPortal) and a custom theme, modified with some minor cosmetic flourishes.  I'm less concerned right now with preserving all those customizations (it would be nice to save all that but I realize that's probably not realistic - at least not initially; what's important is the content, I can always tweak cosmetics later).  Mostly what I want to focus on is getting the new software installed and running without paving over the existing databases containing user accounts and user posts.

I recognize that such an update has the potential to be at least somewhat labor-intensive and time-consuming (especially for me, since I have not had my fingers in this stuff for a long time), and has some risks of over-writing things I want to preserve.
My goal is to preserve all the legacy user content to the greatest degree possible (at the expense of the increased work and hassle required to ensure that).  At least that's my hope.

I'm not sure where to begin.  Can someone offer a pointer and any additional guidance?  I'll undoubtedly have a bunch of dumb follow-up questions as I go through the process.

Many thanks to all for your assistance and patience.

xx Ban List Triggers: are they AND or are they OR?

April 15, 2019, 02:12:37 AM by HeroHog
Say you have a v1.1.21 Ban List and you have an IP Address, Host name, Email Address, and a User Name. Do they work together as an "AND" so they will only be kicked if their IP Address AND their Host name AND their Email Address AND their User Name ALL MATCH the triggers for that entry or do they work as "OR" statements where they will be kicked if their IP Address OR their Host name OR their Email Address OR their User Name match one or more of the triggers for that entry?

Also, is there any reason to ban by, say, IP 69.46.84.50 AND Host 69.46.84.50?

I couldn't find the answer in the docs or through a search and I have inherited a system that appears to have a lot of redundant garbage in the Ban List db.

Thanks in advance.

xx Posting a new topic as a guest

April 10, 2019, 03:27:05 PM by Study Force
Just to be clear, this inquiry is for 1.x.

Just noticed that when a guest posts a topic, two things don't happen:

1) They do not get email notifications if a reply is made
2) The email address used in the topic making process isn't checked (that is, to see if it belongs to anyone in the forum)

Are these observations correct?

Looking at the code, in Subs-Member.php, the function isReservedName exists. This check the username only.

xx PHP 5.5.9 and PHP 7 Support for SMF 1.1.21

April 05, 2019, 04:09:50 AM by adam77
I simply wanted to position it accessible that i have converted SMF 1.1.21 over to mysqli, backported and replaced some deprecated preg_replace calls, and greater to make it paintings on personal home page five.five.nine and php 7.0.  i've examined it very well from scratch (set up and functionality).  it really works super.

but, SMF might not let me release it for some weird cause.  this is too bad due to the fact quite a few us have vintage boards with custom functionality and subject matters that we might not be changing / upgrading.  it's entirely feasible to do though.  i have my SMF 1.1.21 variations transformed on my web sites.

i take advantage of 2.x for new web sites and tasks, however for my antique stuff, i will preserve it operating no matter Hypertext Preprocessor's breaking adjustments (terrible programming on their part).

xx Hiding Info Center From Guests?

March 23, 2019, 06:54:55 AM by Kidbooo
Hello everyone,,,,
I saw some much older posts about how to edit some of the code in the BoardIndex.template.php file in order to hide the entire Info Center at the bottom of the forum from guests. I want to prevent guests from seeing how many people are online on the site, most users online today, most users online ever, etc.

The code I saw provided though doesn't exist in my BoardIndex.template.php for some reason.

Can anyone please kindly provide an updated code change to hide the Info Center at the bottom from the forum from Guests?

I am running SMF 1.1.21 and the Themis theme by Bloc.
