OK so I've installed mods before but what exactly are you to do here?

[ COPY ]
#
copy admin/admin_userlist.php to admin/admin_userlist.php
copy templates/subSilver/admin/userlist_body.tpl to templates/subSilver/admin/userlist_body.tpl
copy templates/subSilver/admin/userlist_group.tpl to templates/subSilver/admin/userlist_group.tpl
copy templates/subSilver/images/arrowright.png to templates/subSilver/images/arrowright.png
copy templates/subSilver/images/arrowdown.png to templates/subSilver/images/arrowdown.png


Thats the files that will need to be changed, make a copy of them locally.

ALWAYS keep a backup copy of these files in case the mod goes pear shaped


Err ... no!

That's the list of files that should have come with the mod which you have to copy to the various places specified in your PHPBB code.

Sorry Frank, my bad!

Bart is quite right, these files should come with the mod and overwrite the existing files of the same name. Remember always KEEP a backup of the files you replace.

Thanks a million chaps!
That userlist mod is going to make my life a lot easier!

Any suggestions for a good Captcha?

Hey Frank,

I have just come across a neat trick for your boards to eliminate all spambots completely. I have had it since Monday on my own boards (see my sig) and have had not one spam user yet. I used to average 3 'good' ones (out of a possile 30) a day that got through my previous blockade.

For those who want to know, it is only 1 line of code to be changed in 2 of your php files. It will even work for this site Bart if you want to think about it.

Essentially, when users sign up, the catchpa (verification code image) must be entered BACKWARDS. After doing so, you can leave account activation as 'None', and even remove blocked IP's and e-mail addresses.

The code changes are:

In /includes/usercp_register.php:

Change:

[code:1] if ($row['code'] != $confirm_code) [/code:1]
to:
[code:1] if ($row['code'] != strrev($confirm_code)) [/code:1]


In /language/lang_english/lang_main.php:
Change:
[code:1] $lang['Confirm_code_explain'] = 'Enter the code exactly as you see it. The code is case sensitive and zero has a diagonal line through it.'; [/code:1]
to:
[code:1] $lang['Confirm_code_explain'] = 'Enter the code that you see <font color="#FF0000"><b>BACKWARDS</b></font>. The code is case sensitive and zero has a diagonal line through it.'; [/code:1]

Remember, whenever you decide to chage any of the php files, make a backup copy before attempting the change in case something goes wrong (which will only be the case if you mistype something in this case ;)).
