IPB "Reported Posts" Hack by Chris

Please Note This is a hack for IPB forums, it works in 1.3 versions…

I tried for hours to get this thing to work on IPB forums and finally figgured it out. The problem was that the setting just didn't get saved to conf_global.php ….

This is how to fix it, First. We need the forum ID number which reported posts will be sent. This task is simple… put your mouse over a forum and look in the status bar.. you should see something like…

index.php?showforum=## (obviously, the ## is a number…)

Now, open up your ftp program and download conf_global.php from your forum folder…

Open it up and scroll to the bottom (adding at the bottom is best, imho…)

Add this to it, remember to modify ## to fit the forum number you wish the reports to be sent…

Code

$INFO['rep_forum'] = '##';

Example, say the forum you picked was 17, then you would enter:

Code

$INFO['rep_forum'] = '17';

:)

Upload the modified conf_global.php and run a test, to make sure its in the right place… Last thing you want is a report ending up in general chat :lol: ;)

Thats odd, for me it works as a proper config option, without having to hand edit.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Yah, I know. Aside from that problem, the hack works perfectly. Not sure why…

Ofcourse, your hacks are for 1.2 IPBs and mine is 1.3….. (non-upgraded.. "pure" 1.3…) :unsure:
