Hi, I got a notification this time  :)

In the .htaccess file the ErrorDocument statements will show you where the file is expected to be.
Check the error log to see if the condition is logged. Even if the file is not replaced, it will be logged that the condition existed and where the file (favicon.ico) was stated to be.

Had to remove some troubling code that used SSI.php and caused issues. Really should not have been there in the first place.

Hi Dblog,

I will need some details in order to help.

What version of BotBanish are you using?
Did you attempt to paste the erred url into a browser?
What is the complete url in question?

I tried all available options i could
.... /BotBanish/bot/Subs/BotBanish_RegisterAccount.php this file causes 403
In settings,
BotBanish APIKEY - Free
where should i register account if it is free

sent you more details in DM

I replied in PM. I will need more information. I could not access your forum site so it seems there is a permissions issue. Check you folder access permissions and .htaccess that may be denying access. I just get a blank page , which usually means something has failed.

#327
I have an error which I cannot find where it's coming from


SMF2.1.4
Maria DB10
PHP8.0.30

The mod installed with no errors. At first I though it was because I added a domain to the blacklist but since then I have deleted all of them and the error still remains.

Any idea which domain that might be?

I should add that this only happens when I access the Blacklist Domains, it doesn't happen with any other settings

As it's a test site there is no guest access if you want admin access please let me know.

If you want quizzes to add to the new SMF2.1 quiz mod go here . There are also walkthroughs in the forum to explain how to install them and other tips.

Aloha Dave J,

That is an oversight on our part while converting to a new release we changed some items in our language text files that did not filter all the way thru other files. I will give you 3 ways to correct this

1 - Copy the attached English Language text file (BotBanishLanguage.english.php) into /BotBanish/bot/Languages/ and in SMF /Themes/default/languages/BotBanish/

2 - If you are using a different language file than English, add these two lines to the end of that BotBanish language file. in both the same locations as #1

$txt['id_domain'] = 'Domain ID';
$txt['domain'] = 'Domain Name';

3 - Copy the attached files to the proper location in BotBanish / SMF. You do not need to do either 1 or 2 and is the simplest way to work in all languages.

Copy BotBanish_BlackWhiteLists_Manage.php to BotBanish/bot/Subs/

Copy BotBanishBlackWhiteDomainList.template.php to /BotBanish/bot/Templates/ and in SMF to /Themes/default/

This will suffice until we update those files in our next release.

Thank you for reporting this error.

 Hi Randem

I've uninstalled the current installation. I extracted the original files from the download, relaced the original files with the new ones you posted and then recompressed it. I then installed it and at present there seems to be no issues.

Thank you for the fix.

If there are any other issues I'll let you know

Hi Dave J,

Yes, that is the 4th way of getting it done  :)  You did not need to use the language file in the replacement if you replaced the other 2 files. Thanks for reporting the issue and allowing us to fix it!
