If you host your yabb se forum on free lycos.co.uk you probably having some problems with it.  I have come up with a mod that seems to fix a few of those problems.  

Some of the problems it fixes / helps:

Can't link to SQL database (intermittent errors)
Redirection errors (i.e. posting and not going back to the forum)

If you don't have boardmod, you will need to download it.

http://boardmod.yabbforum.com/downloads.php

Mods located at:

http://members.lycos.co.uk/kazaaliteforum/mods/

(For Yabbse 1.4.1 & 1.51)

{attached mod - Compuart}

This should be posted in Completed Mods, BTW.

Also you connect to the database like this.
Code: [Select]
$tempxyz = 0;
$dbcon = false;
while (tempxyz < 10 and !$dbcon) {
$dbcon = mysql_connect($db_server, $db_user, $db_passwd);
$tempxyz++;
}
mysql_select_db($db_name);

That will connect 11 times to the database creating unneccessary load on the server.

Allright, this definitely fixed my redirection problem. So if this is fixable, can this be fixable too: Make the redirection after posting to the thread you posted/replied (or at least to a page (which I might be able to make myself) in which I can chose between going to the thread or, for example, to the boardindex).
The fix is great tho  ;) (I only needed it for the redirectionproblem), it's definitely better than going to a lycos page :P, although I would like to be redirected to my thread... Is their a way ;D?

Great work though!

Ok, I did the board mod thing, but I still got a redirection error.  Just to make sure, all I do is upload the modified index.php and /sources/subs.php?
I'm I leaving anything out?

Is there a way to use this online (without downloading your board)? I

ask this because I cannot install PHP on the computer I use at school because the school does not give each user enough space.

Oh. This is what the Boardmod Readme says:

First of all, you need an offline version of your board on your disc
drive. That means you have to copy it into an folder somewhere on your
disc. After program start, you have to select your index.php, therefore
click on <browse>. This is necessary for getting the path to your board
on your harddisc. (Please note that if you want to select another offline
board in another folder after having installed some mods, you should clear
the log file (button) to delete all install/uninstall information from the
old board) Now, you can choose the mod which should be applied. Do this
by clicking the list on the right. Now, you will see more detailed
information about this mod. There are 2 radio buttons on the left.

So you can edit your board (on your computer) if you don't have PHP installed?

Oh. Sorry for being so stupid. Candymann, you have helped me so much. What Boardmod Folder do I put the mod in if I have YABB SE 1.41 (there is a 1.0 and 1.1 Folder).

Rename the folders or create a new one. That's not important.

Mayby it is unnessasairy to tell this, but you can also use this mod on YaBB SE 1.5. I use it on my tripod server with SE 1.5 and it is perfect!
