Unofficial myUPB Forum


Hi to anyone who is visiting.

About MyUPB Forum

MyUPB Forum software was first released in 2002, its initials being an acronym of Ultimate Php Board. It was written by a small team of software developers working under the banner Php Outburst headed by Tim Hoeppner aka Pilot and supported by Jerroyd Moore aka Rebles, and is flat file utilising an in-house text base database rather than the then expensive MySQL option used on most forums today. It soon became very popular and at its height powered many hundred websites. Other key members during this period were Jono345, The Ripper, Codex and Clark, who joined in April 2007.

Although the team continued to expand its features MySQL based forums had become a cheap and attractive alternative which lead to a decline in the number of sites using MyUPB. In December 2010 v.2.2.7. became available though sadly this has proved to be the last official release.

Progress since then has been slow with the original team retiring from the project leaving just Clark who continued to develop the forum with localisation and various other additions until he too left the project in May 2014.

With Clark's departure future development of the project to v.2.2.8 is uncertain and there is no longer any official support.

MyUPB is still a great forum package that is ideal for smaller websites that don't require a 'feature rich' forum and can be even better providing some of the errors and configuration issues can be corrected.

Show all posts by Admin link on profile page

Just discovered this, not sure what the best solution is for now.

Admin is credited, although the post count remains the same, when a topic is moved to another forum and a redirect is left on the original forum.

When viewing Admin's profile and clicking "Show all posts" the moved post is the bottom entry which "refreshes" to the redirect page thus preventing anyone from reading the posts above.  If your quick enough with the escape key you can view the entries.

The problem: Is the meta refresh found in the post which redirects you to the new topic.

The solution: When viewing all posts, remove all html meta tags from posts OR

When viewing all posts, if you're showing a "Topic has moved", show the topic data instead as when you get the "Topic has moved" - you don't actually know what the topic is about.

//Line 313:
$msg = display_msg($pRec['message'], '', true);

//Updated the function.

function display_msg($text,$type = '',$removemeta=false)
$text = filterLanguage(format_text(UPBcoding($text)), $_CONFIG);
$text = str_replace('','',$text);
$text = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? stripslashes($text) : $text;

//Do we need to remove meta data?
if ($removemeta) $text = preg_replace("/<meta (.*?)>/i", "n", $text);

//Our output.
return $text;

A really big thanks to PHPCodex for this fix.  :)
