Announcements / New Release & Code Maintenance now on Github
« on: January 22, 2017, 10:08:24 pm »
I've decided to stop providing releases and daily snapshots in this outdated fashion ;)

Currently I am more maintaining the +nb core, not really enhancing it (help / branches welcome).

All work has been migrated here:

Announcements / Lotgd 1.2.5. +nb Final
« on: April 17, 2014, 08:34:34 pm »
This one is final now.

You should change to it -> the paypal settings are working there and payments get processed.

Paypal did some changes.

Also some minor fixed stuff.

An 80% implemented ajax chat + more is also there.

Announcements / Paypal Changes (affecting all versions)
« on: July 17, 2013, 05:39:36 am »
Paypal will use a slightly different format to validate payments (i.e. your check to hand out DP)

Code: [Select]
// post back to PayPal system to validate $header="POST /cgi-bin/webscr HTTP/1.1\r\n"; $header .="Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\n";
$header .="Host:\r\n";
$header .="Connection: close\r\n\r\n";

This will be in 1.2.5 which will be released once I verify it works.

Bugreports / sanitize_mb
« on: July 02, 2012, 05:59:13 am »
... is kind of a workaround to fix the endless module/core issue of breaking up a non-latin name with str*-functions instead of mb_str* functions.

Problem is the database :) even if you make it UTF, it still calculates field values in bytes. Hence the DB will break it up, if you do not check for the correct size.

Announcements / Lotgd 1.2.4 +nb final
« on: July 01, 2012, 08:11:12 pm »
I will declare that version final now =) should work out well.

Announcements / Lotgd 1.2.5. +nb BETA/Testing

Announcements / Lotgd 1.2.4. +nb BETA / TESTING
« on: February 28, 2011, 09:04:28 am »

Announcements / Lotgd 1.2.3 +nb final
« on: February 28, 2011, 09:02:03 am »
I'll call this one final, no issues came up with it, so I am fairly sure it should be stable =)

Status on Dev / 1.2.2 +nb stable
« on: May 10, 2010, 10:44:50 am »
After no negative issues on my behalf, and no bugreports either, I can call v 1.2.2 now stable.

A major include was the use of the well-known software PHPMailer, which should make email-sending to users quite comfy. If you want to know how to use it, check /lib/sendmail.php. This is how you should handle it.
I did not include full support for all types of mails currently.
i.e. I do not allow attachments.

Announcements / Lotgd 1.2.3 +nb BETA / TESTING!
« on: May 10, 2010, 10:31:17 am »

Status on Dev / 1.2.2 +nb
« on: April 19, 2010, 09:24:21 pm »
...will be released shortly.

I replaced the systemmail mail() with PHPMailer... quite a good thing indeed.
But it needs testing if it works as intended.

Then I'll call it stable =)

Announcements / Error in lib/dbwrapper_mysql.php - superfluous code
« on: June 03, 2009, 11:52:14 am »

sorry, it seems my private logging was carried over to the nb-snapshots :( this occurs in 1.2.0 and ongoing until the 1.2.2 beta

sorry. please re-download the package you got and replace:


That should do the trick.

I have fixed all versions.

If not, tell me.

The code you can safely remove is:

Code: [Select]

62                 if ($data==array() && strpos($name,"inject")!==false) {
 63                         //log for me
 64                         System("echo \"".date("Y:m:d H:i:s:").": Sorry, we g    ot an empty query here: $sql\" >>/var/log/shino/emptyqueries.log");
 65                         System("echo >>/var/log/shino/emptyqueries.log");
 66                 }

This was done to log empty queries on my server.

General Development Stuff / Paypal Issue since 20th of January 2009
« on: January 29, 2009, 10:27:41 am »
... just FYI, paypal seems to send now different HTTP responses/requests ... on all of my servers (featuring 1.2.2 dev and 1.2.1 stable) the payments won't get recorded into the payment table.

Although, points are given out.

If you experience this too, please leave a note here.

I did not do any changes to the payment system in the past weeks, so I am fairly sure it is (again) a change of formatting on the behalf of Paypal that breaks the saving.

I'll look into this later on, just wanted to make that public.

Bugreports / cron.php in 1.2.1 +nb final
« on: January 08, 2009, 04:01:06 pm »

Exchange line 16 with this one:

Code: [Select]
The cron.php without setting any parameter will not do anything else. This was set up to let it run the full thing but I wrote "&" instead of "|" and also forgot the include the char cleanup =)

I fixed this in the downloads and also in 1.2.2 dev
