Hi, sorry for bumping an old thread but I I'm having the exact same problem, when I create a post using submit_post it stays hidden 'till a mod approves it. I have posted manually in the same place so I know I have permissions. How did you solve this?

Thanks.

icebrain: Normally that means $auth->acl() has not been run, or has been run for the a user who does not have posting without approval permissions in the given forum.

"$auth->acl() has not been run" - what does that mean?

I cannot figure out how to get it to post with approval. I am posting with an admin account and it allways needs aproval. I know i have the forum permissions to post

Code: Select all

<?php
define('IN_PHPBB', true);
$phpbb_root_path = '../';
$phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1);

include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.' . $phpEx);
include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/functions_posting.' . $phpEx);
include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/message_parser.' . $phpEx);

$user->session_begin();
$auth->acl($user->data);
$user->setup();

$auth->login('AdminUserName','AdminPassword');

$my_subject      = utf8_normalize_nfc('Topic Subject Line');
$my_text      = utf8_normalize_nfc('

Body
shown as

you want to see it.

');
         
$poll = $uid = $bitfield = $options = ''; 

generate_text_for_storage($my_subject, $uid, $bitfield, $options, false, false, false);
generate_text_for_storage($my_text, $uid, $bitfield, $options, true, true, true);
            
$data = array( 
   'forum_id'      => 82,
   'icon_id'      => false,

   'enable_bbcode'   => true,
   'enable_smilies'   => true,
   'enable_urls'      => true,
   'enable_sig'      => true,
               
   'message'      => $my_text,
   'message_md5'      => md5($my_text),
            
   'bbcode_bitfield'   => $bitfield,
   'bbcode_uid'      => $uid,
         
   'post_edit_locked'   => 0,
   'topic_title'      => $my_subject,
   'notify_set'      => false,
   'notify'         => false,
   'post_time'      => 0,
   'forum_name'      => '',
   'enable_indexing'   => true,
);
           
submit_post('post', $my_subject, '', POST_NORMAL, $poll, $data);

?>

I had the same problem, but i solved this by adding

Code: Select all

'force_approved_state'    => true,
at the very end in the $data array.
This posts everything, even in forums with admin only access, as guest if submit_post() is run with no user logged in.

hi all
I wrote a script that insert a new thread + replies.
here's the full code as example:

Code: Select all

<?php
/**
* @ignore
*/

@set_time_limit(0);
//@ignore_user_abort(true);
@ini_set('memory_limit', '64M');

define('IN_PHPBB', true);
$phpbb_root_path = (defined('PHPBB_ROOT_PATH')) ? PHPBB_ROOT_PATH : './';
$phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1);
include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.' . $phpEx);
include_once($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/functions_user.' . $phpEx);
include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/functions_posting.' . $phpEx);

// Start first session management 
$user->session_begin();
$auth->acl($user->data);
$user->setup();

// function to insert a NEW POST/THREAD or an ANSWER to an existing one (depending by $topic_id value) 
function crea_msg(&$topicid, $idforum, $titolo, $testo)
{
	$my_subject = utf8_normalize_nfc($titolo);
	$my_text    = utf8_normalize_nfc($testo);
	// variables to hold the parameters for submit_post
	$poll = $uid = $bitfield = $options = ''; 
	generate_text_for_storage($my_subject, $uid, $bitfield, $options, false, false, false);
	generate_text_for_storage($my_text, $uid, $bitfield, $options, true, true, true);
	
	$data = array( 
		'forum_id'      	=> $idforum, //2,
		'icon_id'       	=> false,	
		'topic_id'      	=> ($topicid == 1) ? NULL : $topicid, // NULL if first post of a new thread; $topicid instead, to link this new post to the previous one created
		'enable_bbcode'     => true,
		'enable_smilies'    => true,
		'enable_urls'       => true,
		'enable_sig'        => true,
		'message'       	=> $my_text,
		'message_md5'   	=> md5($my_text),						
		'bbcode_bitfield'   => $bitfield,
		'bbcode_uid'        => $uid,
		'post_edit_locked'  => 0,
		'topic_title'       => $my_subject,
		'notify_set'        => false,
		'notify'            => false,
		'post_time'         => 0,
		'forum_name'        => '',
		'enable_indexing'   => true,
	);
	 	
	if ($topicid == 1) {	
		submit_post('post', $my_subject, '', POST_NORMAL, $poll, $data);
	} else {
		submit_post('reply', $my_subject, '', POST_NORMAL, $poll, $data);
	}

	//update $topic_id to have as referral for next post
	$topicid  = $data['topic_id'];  
}


/* 1st message */
//set $topic_id only for first message
$topic_id = 1;
//change message user creator
$user->data['user_id']	 = 58;
//choose forum where you want insert the new thread/post
$id_forum 	= 2; 
//title of the new thread/post
$title		= 'Test nuova procedura import - 0';
//title of the new thread/post
$text 		= 'This is a test';
//launch funcion created before to insert a new post (if $topic_id = 1 will be a new thread - otherwise will be an answer to topic created on step before)
// *** in this case $topic_id = 1 so will be a new thread ***
crea_msg($topic_id, $id_forum, $title, $text); 
//wait 2 secs before proceed - useful to have a correct message ordering inside the forum thread 
sleep(2);

//change message user creator
$user->data['user_id'] = 60;
$id_forum 	= 2; 
$title		= 'Test nuova procedura import - 1';
$text 		= 'This is a test 1';
// *** in this case $topic_id != 1 so will be an answer to post before created ***
crea_msg($topic_id, $id_forum, $title, $text); 
sleep(2);

//change message user creator
$user->data['user_id'] = 58;
$id_forum 	= 2; 
$title		= 'Test nuova procedura import - 2';
$text 		= 'This is a test 2';
// *** in this case $topic_id != 1 so will be an answer to post before created ***
crea_msg($topic_id, $id_forum, $title, $text); 


//switch back to admin user
$user->data['user_id'] = 2;
?>

Bye
