The redirection fix does not work on 2.0.24. I'm always redirected to the index.php instead to the ACP after logging in into the ACP. I have to click again on the Administration link in the footer to open the ACP.

The private session id (p_sid) is set at this moment. It seems, you have to edit the login.php (and optionally login_body.tpl, depends on the code used).

I checked the "mod", and i forgot to add the last "find"/"after add" in the login.php... i added it on page 1. I suggest you to try again after you added the missing line ^^

Adding the $s_hidden_fields part in /login.php now instantly redirects to the ACP if the /admin/index.php is requested. Works even on PHP 5.3+.

I'm not yet seeing this problem -- probably because I don't have any members with those particular characters -- but I think I know why it's happening: htmlspecialchars() has a different encoding default in php 5.4 vs 5.3. See this post for details.

And you can apply these changes to not get in trouble with the new behavior of htmlspecialchars() and to get ready for the future with UTF-8.

For an existing installation you need phpMyAdmin (or a lot of SQL queries on the terminal) when converting the tables and you can skip the files in the /install folder, because they are only required for a new installation.

G'day folks!

First I'd like to say: Thank you very much for your efforts!

I was on 2.0.22 (with several custom edits and enhancements to cover for security issues, along dozens of customizations and mods) and needed PHP 5.4 for a different software.

Several issues occurred like Umlauts killing preview, registration issues and avatars impossible to upload.

Found this thread and waded through the process of upgrading my 14 year old BB to 0.23 to be able to properly add the code changes here.

So after some glitches and a lot of extra work to cover for extra fields, several mods, hand coded stuff and a couple of templates / themes I just finished.
Upgraded PHP back to 5.4 again and surfed through the board. Works fine!

But hell. Still avatar uploading does not work. Users receive an error like "the avatar must be in gif, jpg, or png format".
Tried my own avatar - just a 18KB gif 64x64 while that has always been within the allowed value.

Won't do. When I switch back to PHP 5.3 it works.

Now I found another issue when posting:

Vorübergehend funktioniert das Hochladen von Avatars / Profilbildern nicht vernünftig.

Ich hab den ganzen Tag dran gearbeitet, die anderen Fehler los zu werden. Ich möchte nun aber erst mal wieder bei der neueren PHP-Version bleiben, und bitte Euch, Probleme oder Fehler hier zu berichten.

Could not insert new word

DEBUG MODE

Line : 236
File : functions_search.php


Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
