Koos's PunBB Mods

Unfortunately no one can be told what PunBB is - you have to see it for yourself.

My PunBB Mods

Automatic Image Upload with Thumbnails

This tool allows users to upload images and automatically creates thumbnails for them which can then be displayed in your forum posts. Clicking the thumbnail shows the original image. By only displaying thumbnails pages load quicker. This is not really a "MOD" since no punbb files have to be modified and the database is not affected. This makes for very easy installation and removal if needed. Also no changes are necessary when upgrading your punbb forum

Private Messaging System unofficial update

The Private Messaging Mod must be the most popular mod for punbb 1.2, yet the latest version still contains many bugs and some vulnerabilities. While I was working on my own modifications to this mod (to allow users to create private message folders), I encountered and fixed many of these bugs and vulnerabilities. Since I was not able to get hold of the author of this mod, I decided to release this unofficial update.

Show user posts and topics

Adds 'Show all topics' link next to the 'Show all posts' link in the user profile. The 'Show all topics' link will now only show the topics which the user has started (instead of the topics in which the user has participated in), and the 'Show all posts' link will show all the posts the user has made. Also, when performing a search and selecting 'Show results as: Posts', the entire post will be displayed (without it being truncated) and its BBCode will be parsed.

Some other mods I use and can also recommend

1. Forum cleanup

2. Languages and styles

3. Active Topics Mod by Alex King.
To install, copy the file 'mod_active_topics_1.2.php' to forum root, and then just add the following line:
require PUN_ROOT.'mod_active_topics_1.2.php';
right above $footer_style = 'index';
in index.php

4. PunToolBar - available from the French Punbb/Fluxbb support site (it's one of the most popular mods over there); English install instruction and lang file also included.

4. HighlightSearchResult Mod. Just make sure to add the fixes I posted here after installing this mod. My 'Show user posts and topics' mod also complements this mod, in that it allows you to display the non truncated versions of the posts when performing a search, enabling you to see all the highlighted words.
