Re: what does left_id and right_id in the table forums?

Can anyone please tell me how I would make the numbers for these columns? They're for sub-forums, right? So you know what the parent forum is, and what the child forum is. I believe godOfgod was asking how to calculate a left and right id for a new forum, in that case you need to know the relations...

This is my assumption, anyway. :?
That's not enough information to build a tree with left and right id's, you'll need to know the relationship between all forums.

Re: Found a possible XSS vulnerability

"javascript:alert('foo');" doesn't do much unless it's between script-tags or inside an attribute, URL's are checked with regex.

Note on the side, perhaps you should post things like these to the security checker, in stead of posting it publicly.

Re: Idea: No 0's and O's in reset passwords

I don't even see why generated passwords are needed, why not let people choose a new password and activate that one through e-mail? You won't need to go to the UCP and change it again, or have trouble reading it.
