New UBB.threads Peeks

August 25, 2015
Gosh, it's been a while since I wrote an entirely new system for UBB.threads, heck it's been a busy year maintaining things that it's hard to compare any apples to oranges.

As I lay here in bed swiping away at my tablet I think of many new additions to the forum software that I've been using all these years, and this year as part of a team of developers working to produce it as well.

We had a long list of things that we wanted to tackle, one was the fact that we where far from standards co

September 14, 2014
We've been working long and hard on our own custom CMS to house our family of sites' code and have just rolled it out here on our design and development hq.

It's taken a great deal of time to get this coding where it is to the point of rolling it out on here, but I hope you all find something you're looking for :).

This short entry is geared towards giving you some basic pointers on editing custom islands; this covers a couple very common issues that people have (either accidently removing portions of the stock code to make the island not work, or by placing their code in the wrong places, or issues in referencing php code in the html area).

Your stock custom island looks like this:

(GD and ImageMagick only effect the Captcha and Gallery; if you use neither of these then you don't really have to worry about what is right for you as you don't use either of them anyway)

Many users have asked what is better; well, that's up to you to decide really (though IM is more scalable and looks much cleaner :hint:) Well, I'm going to go a level more and visit Operating System support (with IM s GD).

In Windows, to run IM you MUST open CMD.EXE access to your web server software, wh

Spider List

March 12, 2008
This is by far not a complete list of spiders; that would be most impossible to accomplish. Instead, this is a list of popular spiders that I have come across over several communities.

I will be updating this list from time to time so please check back often. I'll be sure to put the date of the *latest* update under the list.

This page is located on the UBB.Wiki as well.

The Spider Listing can be added to your forums by going to:

Errors and Solutions

July 31, 2007
This thread will take on various possible error messages and their solutions on a case basis.

Database only viewable by forum administrator
This error generally is only shown to "non admin's", as the admin's should always see the full error (hence the error message); if for whatever reason you're getting this error and are an admin (perhaps you're logged out) there are a couple of options.

If you have CP Access and Error Logging Enabled

Attachments 101

July 30, 2007
There are several areas that you'll need to visit to setup attachments; we'll cover them all here, including inline embedding of graphics.

The Configuration
First, you'll need to create a new directory on your server, and make it fully writable by the webserver (chmod 777 in *nix), we'll assume this is named "uploads" under your ubb install directory. (forums/uploads).

Secondly, you'll need to know the full filesystem path (the "relative" path will not work here) to this directory, it sho

Well, I know this says it's documenting undocumented bbcode, but I figure I'll just do a basic "what is" on each one and some basic syntax.

Be sure that you "nest" your bbcode properly; an example:
This will have multiple elements.

This will have multiple elements.

You need to terminate the tag as it is called, in the closest order.
