any chance of bringing the demo back to life again?

the new release has got me interested in going back to PHPbb, and i'm really interested in the admin area before I install, but you have the dreaded I'm in your forums messing with your stuff message...

wow my post count dropped back to the floor again...

Updated to RC 8 :D

This time I am smarter: I removed the options to change the site title, desc, you can't do PHP info, backup/restore db, or delete the logs!

Updated to 3.0.1 :D

Info:

as for the past few years I've had this, everything in the admin panel is accessible, except you woln't be able to manipulate the database backup or restore, you can't view my PHP info, and you can't clear the administrator log.

Otherwise, feel free to ban users, delete posts, forums, etc. Create anything you want... test to destruction... :ugeek:

You should absolutely turn off template editing, or the first idiot will put porn images in all templates. This has already happened on my admin demo (whose link I'm not posting here - this is your topic :) ). I suggest you to make a "demo upon request",that is, user have to ask you for an account before they have access, so that you can track them. Otherwise either you accept to have an unsafe demo, or you have to disable a lot of features, and it becomes a half-admin demo. ;)

Well, I haven't had anything bad happen with that yet, so I don't want to restrict people too much. Overall, my admin panel demo has been very successfull with not too many annoyances.

Updated it to 3.0.2 the other day. Still not current, so I'll finish off to 3.0.4 shortly! Over 2 years later, and people are still signing up to demo the admin panel. Amazing.

Most interesting news? I got about 40 spam topics around a month ago that I just moved out of sight. I'm going to analyze them some time to see if they are bots or humans. I didn't have the captcha on in over 2 years, so it is on now for the first time ever.

Live Admin panel Demo is in the process of being updated to version 3.0.4.

On 31 Jan, some goofball named 'omghax' executed quite possibly the lamest hacking attempt ever and deleted all posts, forums, and users except for himself and myself. Wooptidoo.. :roll:

Has this anything to do with the board not being up to date? :shock:
