Out of curiosity, what do you mean by "sanitising"?

Anyway, good luck and thanks for the hard work to all phpbb teams.

I was talking of simple MD5 (or SHA) hashes (which are still the most used, btw).

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

The problem with a single md5 hash is that, if the hash is known, there are ways to find a string that maybe is not the same as the actual password, but that does generate the same hash (a so-called collision). A common way to do that is to use rainbow tables; huge tables that map from every possib...

Looking right now. If it works as I think, it's great but definitely not clear.

[edit] @ Prince: even with ADSL, adresses are dynamic.

Ban by IP address, unban by name?

Hi, throwing there an idea based on a real problem. There's a banned user who keeps re-subscribing and invading my board. The problem would probably be solved banning quite a wide range of IP addresses, but if I do there's at least one legit user that results banned too. Possible solution: an "unban...

Re: <!-- PHP --> not work in templates

1) Such questions should be asked on phpbb.com

3) Make sure you refresh the template from Admin Panel and clear your browser cache after you've modified the code
4)
writeln ('test');
What's this, Pascal? :P

Re: can i too, get the yellow color highlight for my topics ????

If you mean the yellow shade when the mouse cursor is over the element, you need to apply something like

Code: Select all

tr:hover { background-color: whatever }
to the element you want to change in the CSS file.

This is more a question for phpbb.com though.

Re: unique_id function

As for spoofing your IP address, you are correct, TCP requires a 3-way handshake, thus making it impossible to simply spoof your IP address and get results. Well, you could spoof a TCP packet and make it look like a UDP packet. :P (Webservers listen for UDP packets on :80, don't they?) Still, whate...
