xx 1.1.x upgrade to 2.0.x

June 18, 2018, 04:43:30 AM by Declan303
I am going to upgrade an old forum to 2.0.15. I now have it patched up to 1.1.21 so wondering do I now have to upgrade to 2.0 and then apply the patches up to 2.0.15 or can I upgrade directly to 2.0.15?

xx Need help to transfer a SMF/SQL backup from one Hosting to another.

June 15, 2018, 09:44:49 PM by RYFB
Hi there
I have a new hosting and still have the old one working as well.
My new hosting has SQL Import so I downloaded a SMF/SQL backup from my old provider and went to upload to my new hosting.
The new hosting says "Character set utf-8

A problem pops up saying:
SQL query:
-- Table structure for table `smf_ads`

MySQL said: Documentation
#1046 - No database selected

Any ideas

xx Deleted a fellow admin's account on accident, can this be fixed?

June 04, 2018, 10:07:07 PM by Eagle31
Greetings,  I deleted by mistake another admins account on the forum but not his postings. So me seeing this a couple days later I created another account manually using the same user name and email address and of course it did not change anything as to his prior account postings had him labeled as "Guest" this is SMF version 1.1.21. I had built this forum in 2011 and then left a few months later and have just come back to help them with spam problems and other issues a few days ago. This is a very low traffic board for a club that only has anywhere from a few postings a day to a few a week. Can this be fixed...???  On a side note I DID do a backup before his account was deleted but NOT on the server but on the forum software itself and saved in gzip format with both the Table Structure and Table Data. Can this be fixed...???...If not I am in a lot of trouble...PLEASE HELP.

(EDIT: Lex tampered with the title. )

Hello There!
I want to change some strings of my default theme Forum version: SMF 1.1.21
as ['common_stats']['latest_member']['link'] adding the current date the last member was added and welcomed.

'our newest member on 02-Jun-18' for example!

WHERE is that file where I can do these changes ?
Thanks in adavance!

solved Emojis are causing PMs to not send full content

May 28, 2018, 07:14:53 AM by mark7144
I've noticed that when you insert emojis (via phone keyboard) into a PM, everything after that point fails to reach the recipient. However, the full contents actually shows in the email notification they get.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

xx site was hacked, can i save the data separately to access in text format?

May 26, 2018, 03:58:47 PM by kriscoop
hello all

I have an old forum, I believe it is on SMF 1.1.2 that got hacked years ago.

I was *barely* able to figure out how to set up stuff back then (2008-ish) and now my brain is just total mush, so I'm having trouble figuring out *anything* - I even seem to have lost my homepage -- how does that happen?? (I suppose I deleted it, um, duh? - this is called brain fog...).

So now I am wondering if there is any way to pull out the data and have it available in a text-only format or archive of some sort.  I would like to keep the content of the discussions, it an old board from when all of us moms had babies years ago, so there is lots of sentimental information.

I do have a backup of the forum and would make it live again when I switch my site to a new host, but I'm afraid if I upload my backup, the boogeyman hacker stuff will contaminate the site again.

Sorry to babble...if anyone is feeling kindly and feels like helping an old mama out, I'd appreciate it.  I would pay to have the problem fixed if someone is nearby - I'm in central New Jersey...

thanks (and stay cool!)
