SMF SSI.php Functions

Current Version: 2.1.4

This file is used to demonstrate the capabilities of SSI.php using PHP include functions. The examples show the include tag, then the results of it.

Include Code

To use SSI.php in your page add at the very top of your page before the <html> tag on line 1 of your php file:

Code: [Select]
<?php require("SSI.php"); ?>

Some notes on usage

All the functions have an output method parameter. This can either be "echo" (the default) or "array"

If it is "echo", the function will act normally - otherwise, it will return an array containing information about the requested task. For example, it might return a list of topics for ssi_recentTopics.

This functionality can be used to allow you to present the information in any way you wish.

xx SMF 2.1.4 Released

June 10, 2023, 01:18:17 PM by shawnb61
Dear Members,

Simple Machines is pleased to announce a new patch for the 2.1.x line of SMF, which pushes the version number to 2.1.4.

Notable changes in SMF 2.1.4

  • Attachments Upload UI enhancements - The UI used for uploading attachments is now easier to use, and a tad more aesthetic also.
  • Cron enhancements - When running cron as a crontab in unix, it will now check for scheduled tasks and possibly flush the mail queue, in addition to acting on background tasks.
  • jQuery upgrade - jQuery upgraded to 3.6.3.
  • Notifications bug - Fixed a bug where certain notifications were not getting delivered if a user subscribed to both a board and a topic within the board.
  • Editor bug - Fixed a bug where the cursor position may behave erratically when mentions exist in WYSIWYG mode.
  • Search bug - Fixed a bug caused by some non-backwards compatible behavior in PHP 8.0+ that might result in incomplete results.
  • Subscriptions bug - Fixed a bug where subscriptions with multi-byte utf8 characters in the description might cause errors.
  • Subscriptions bug - Fixed an undefined constant CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE bug.
  • Package Manager bug - Fixed a bug where invalid default value errors were generated.
  • Custom Fields Search bug - Fixed a bug which prevented custom field searches from working on the member list under some circumstances.
  • Autolinker bug - Fixed a bug where the autolinker might get a match on partial names.
  • Upgrader bug - Fixed a bug where certain notification settings were not brought forward properly from 2.0.
  • Hooks bugs - Fixed bugs where hooks might not be removed properly when mods were deleted, and also where duplicate hooks might be created upon mod reinstall.  Also, enabling & disabling of hooks in the admin console works cleanly now.
  • Fixed a bug where admin-only boards might be visible on the board index.
  • Fixed a bug where users might get kicked out with erroneous verification question errors.
  • Fixed a bug where membergroup adds may not get logged properly.
  • Fixed a bug where you may get cache errors in the logs.
  • Fixed a bug where long user agents might cause various errors in the SMF error log.
  • Fixed a bug where MariaDB users might see a "Subject isn't in GROUP BY" error when removing a topic.
  • Fixed a bug where the SSI Recent Topics call did not show the original topic title.
  • Numerous minor bug fixes, e.g., to address undefined vars.
  • Numerous tweaks to enhance the UI.

Please see the change list on GitHub for more information.

How to update to 2.1.4

If you are currently using version 2.1.3, you can perform the update using the Package Manager (Administration Center > Package Manager). There you should see a notification about 2.1.4, including a "update your forum" link. If you do not see this notification in the Package Manager, please run "Fetch Simple Machines files" from the Scheduled Tasks page (Administration Center > Maintenance > Scheduled Tasks), and then try again.

If you are currently using any version from 2.1.0 to 2.1.3, you can use the process described above to apply previous update patches successively until you reach version 2.1.4.

If you are currently using any older version of SMF (including SMF 1.x, SMF 2.0.x, or one of the SMF 2.1 Betas or RCs), you can upgrade directly to 2.1.4 from whichever version you are currently using by using the "Large Upgrade" package from the Download page. Be aware that using this upgrade method will require you to reinstall any customizations that you have added to your forum, so if you are running SMF 2.1.0 or higher, it is recommended that you apply the successive patches instead of using the Large Upgrade.

If you are having problems downloading the patch from the admin panel, you can download the patch package from the Package Manager Updates page and install it via the Package Manager, as you would any other mod package.

Please refer to the Online Manual for more details about patching and upgrading.


Finally, as always, please do not use this topic for support requests. You will receive a much quicker and better response by posting in the 2.1.x Support Board.

Thank you for using SMF!

Simple Machines

xx SMF 2.1.3 Released

November 21, 2022, 02:06:14 PM by shawnb61
Dear Members,

Simple Machines is pleased to announce a new patch for the 2.1.x line of SMF, which pushes the version number to 2.1.3.

Notable changes in SMF 2.1.3

  • Unicode support enhancements - SMF unicode support now matches the latest published standard, Unicode 15, published in Sept 2022 (https://unicode.org/versions/Unicode15.0.0/).  Staying current is important for proper capitalization across alphabets, and also with non-printable character detection.
  • Attachments enhancement - Honor SMF-specified attachment limitations.  SMF was restricting attachment uploads based on the underlying php configuration; however, given the .js approach used, this limitation did not apply.
  • Attachments enhancement - Automatically delete inserted img tags when the corresponding attachments are deleted.
  • Notification enhancement - Cleanup unread notifications after post approvals, after closing moderation reports, and after unlikes.
  • Notification enhancement - Cleanup unread orphan alerts, created by message or topic deletions or permission changes.
  • Notification enhancement - Cleanup unread quote and mention alerts if they were removed during a post edit.
  • Upgrader enhancements - Issue warnings if attachment or avatar directories are not found. Also, a new option was added to allow the user to rerun the attachment conversion.
  • Enhanced timezone support - SMF now supports all current timezones (https://www.iana.org/time-zones).
  • Attachments bug - Fixed a bug where attachments might disappear with a "Not a Valid Attachment ID" message.
  • Notification bug - Fixed a bug where the alert count displayed was incorrect.
  • Email bug - Fixed a bug where emails with a mail type of PHP did not work properly in PHP 8.x in linux environments. (SMTP was OK.)
  • Postgresql support - Fixed numerous issues causing mod installs to behave differently across Postgresql and MySQL.  It is much easier now to develop a mod that supports both.
  • Fixed a bug where PHP 8.1 was being persnickety and did not like implicit float to int conversions.
  • Fixed a bug where the sql_mode was not being properly set in MySQL 8.x.  This would result in slightly different DB query behavior across MySQL 5.x and MySQL 8.x.
  • Fixed a bug where explicitly "Not Following" a topic resulted in it showing up in your unread list, and not going away...
  • Improved support for spaces in URLs...  Not per any RFC or spec, but SMF supported them in 2.0, so that support should have been carried forward to 2.1...
  • Fixed a bug where errors appeared in the SMF error log when crawlers attempted to access now-moved avatars.  During the 2.1 migration, avatars and attachments may be relocated; external crawlers referencing defunct links should not generate SMF errors.
  • Fixed a bug in Postgresql syntax when deleting fulltext indexes.
  • Fixed a bug where "Trying to access array offset on value of type null" showed up in the log.
  • Fixed a bug where the editor would drop links if copied and pasted.
  • Fixed a bug where right-to-left languages could not be specified and displayed properly.
  • Fixed a bug where sorting PMs did not work properly.
  • Fixed a bug where the BBC url setting erroneously affected signature and topic behavior.
  • Fixed a bug where hidden members were hidden from admins, too...
  • Fixed a bug where the wrong icon was used for profile links in PMs.
  • Fixed a bug where robot_no_index might be set incorrectly, potentially affecting SEO.
  • Fixed a bug with CORS headers were not being built properly.
  • Fixed a bug where custom themes might load empty styles.
  • Fixed a bug where permissions were not properly retained when boards were moved.  Moved boards might disappear...
  • Fixed a bug with using wildcards in IP tracking.
  • Fixed multiple errors with caching - better reporting of the cache engine not loading, and better handling when not getting a hit on cached info.
  • Improved edits on profile info, e.g., website urls too long.
  • Fixed a bug where page numbers in lengthy lists might show decimals...
  • Improved the message when verification questions were missing.
  • Enhanced support for passwords for myBB converted users.
  • Fixed an upgrader bug where 1.1 migrations might fail with Too few arguments to function smf_mysql_insert_id().
  • Numerous minor enhancements and tweaks to layout.


Please see the change list on GitHub for more information.

  • Fixes a bug where attachments might not download correctly if the "Enable compressed output" setting was enabled on PHP 8.0.17+ and 8.1.4+.
  • Fixes some rare Unicode character handling issues.
  • Security improvements.
