I heard this before, does that also apply when I'm only using MySQL? Why is it such a bad idea? And should one apply stripslashes() first with magic_quotes_gpc on?

I have been wondering about this, is it possible to perform SQL-injection with a spoofed $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] global? I usually run it through addslashes() when I'm storing it in a DB, but is that even necessary? There's not much I can find about this on Google.

I could see this as being useful, but I think the idea is for a human to make the decision to ban a user.
I believe the plan for 3.2 was to let you set this up through the events system?

Re: Show us your phpBB3 websites? or not. [Shocase]

We could just show it, right?

I mainly just edited colours.css, along with some minor template/imageset changes.

Re: What happens with the html in phpBB?

HTML isn't secure enough, that's why we have powerful custom BBCodes now..
