xx Old forum SMF 1.1.21

May 03, 2022, 04:21:31 PM by Axelo2
Hi everyone,
I hope to find some clarifications on your help forum.
I'm Axel and I have in my new charge to manage an old forum used by a vintage motorcycle club.
The forum in question is: "terrot france free fr /forum".
I assume that the solution is hosted at free but I do not have access to the server on which the forum is hosted so my question is, having access only to the forum, do I have the possibility to upgrade the forum version to a newer version? I am also looking to update the security when creating accounts to avoid being continually invaded by robots by adding a captcha.
I was able to make a backup of the sql database from the forum.
Thanks in advance,

xx How to practive moving a 1.1.21 forum

April 24, 2022, 07:21:16 PM by von Corax
I've recently inherited a SMF forum running 1.1.21. I intend to upgrade, but I would like to practice the process first. Is there any possible way to install 1.1.21 on my dev box, either by cloning my prod installation or by downloading from an undocumented online repository?

xx banning users question

April 22, 2022, 06:02:48 PM by jwhiz56
we select a 'full ban', and ban on on IP address, email and username.  is this an 'AND' condition or an 'OR' condition.  ie, suppose we ban,, jwhiz1956.  if the same IP comes in with a different email and different userid, will it ban automatically?  or do we need to setup individual bans, once for IP, once for email and once for userid?  this is under smf 1.1.20.

please, no responses saying we need to upgrade smf.  the upgrade to 2.0 has been tried in the past and there is something about our forum that won't allow the upgrade to occur.

solved Is it difficult to remake SMF 1.x for PHP 8?

December 30, 2021, 05:47:28 AM by Helgi
Happy Holidays to everyone!

I would like to know if there are many fixes to be done in the code for SMF 1.1.21 to work on PHP 8x. Or at least on PHP 7.4.

Please do not suggest upgrading to SMF 2.0.x or SMF 2.1.

As I understand it, all database calls need to be rewritten.

solved Sliding Menu Irritation

December 11, 2021, 08:55:06 AM by marzi
Hoping someone can help me. When I am entering a comment in my forum, every time I use the letter p the following menu slides out from the left side and the letter p is blocked from being used (see image). Not sure if it is my version of smf or a package I installed many years ago.
Can anyone help me?
