Phorum 5.2.22 released
October 27, 2016 11:58AM
I'm happy to announce our latest stable release Phorum 5.2.22.

It is a bug fix release over 5.2.21 fixing some issues reported (including patches, thanks folks!) and other collected changes since the last release.

You can download this new release from our downloads page or our github page.

  • Redirect to index.php when there's no query string (fixing #1000).
  • Replaced shortened array syntax as of PHP 5.4.
  • Workaround for corrupted serialized meta data. When database encoding changed from single to multibyte character set unserialize function fails for data with multibyte characters.
  • Check banlists for addon.php.
  • random_int function defined too late.
  • Force password change option. Start of renovation of our password system. First step: New administrator option to force a password change for individual or all users via the control center. After reload a page or after logging-in
    the user lands directly on the (already existing) "change password" dialog in the control center. A message in a red box says "For security reasons, you are required to change your password.". The user can only move inside the control center until he changed the password. Every other link is redirected to the change password dialog.
  • Filter link for IP address in user admin panel. Provides an IP address filter clickable link without opening "details". Provided by Scott Finegan.

Template changes:
  • Changed some indents and removed comment to closed trac issue 213.
  • Unnecessary closing div removed.
  • Revision of emerald template.

Hi Oliver,

Thank you for your hard work! Very much appreciated.

I've been using phorum since 2007 (droominfo.nl/phorum). Is an update of the phorum javascript on (your) roadmap? Phorum's javascript still uses methods based on jquery 1.6. The rest of my website is already on jQuery2.

It would also be super if Phorum could be made ready for php7.

kind regards,

Marco Troost

I don't have information about issues with php7. The few problems addressed in our support forums are solved.

There are few tasks concerning depreciated functions (eregi; magic_quotes; split and mysql_escape_string), but they don't avoid to use php7...

Regards
Oliver

That's great news.

Any ideas on updating the javascript of Phorum? I'm planning on using a theme throughout my site that utilizes the latest jquery.
If i integrate jQuery 2.2.2 in my phorum templates, i get javascript errors ...

Can you perhaps open a new issue in github and list the javascript errors?

HI Oliver,

I've just copied all the new files (on localhost) over the existing phorum-files. When i visit /admin and log on, i get the following message:

Table 'homestead.phorum_user_custom_fields' doesn't exist (1146): SELECT * FROM phorum_user_custom_fields WHERE user_id IN (1)

and indeed, the table doesn't seem to exist.

Can you tell what is the matter?

thank you for your time,

regards, Marco

Marco, your live site shows at [www.droominfo.nl] that you are using 5.3-dev version.
So a 5.2.x install would actually be a downgrade, which is not supported and therefore you got a not-matching database version.

P.S. Wanna see better antispam in future versions, it is quite bad nod.

I second that — the Stop Forum Spam service works very well against known spammers. It was instrumental for me in a recent fight against spammers and ends up blocking approximately 50 users a day.
