Ive created another hack so I know when my mods/admins perform any moving/editing/deleting activities on my board. I got sick of asking people who did this and who did that. This way makes it nice and easy for me to know eho does what.
Here is what the output looks like. Quite simple but it does what it has to do smile

Also maybe can you reverse the order as the latest move first instead of last?

You might also log IP's. That way if a moderator leaked his/her password (even without knowing) you can check if it's done from their computer or not.

You might even find it's one of your registered users.

Viper, you have mail!

I've reversed the display order, so the newest logged activity is displayed at the top, and it also logs IP's and Remote Host name.

Enjoy

I have edited your initial post to include a link to the .zip file....figured it made more sense than to add it lower in the thread. Everyone have a look.

Now I have to get to work to update the DB here!! smile

Well the data file will just keep growing, no limit on size at all. If you see its getting too large then just wipe it and it will create it automatically next time.

I am implementing the hack as we speak. I found something to be different when using version 5.45:

[code][/code]This routine is not in ubblibrary.pl but in cpanel2.cgi, cpanel3.cgi and cpanel4.cgi

Damn. I'm stuck. There's nothing similar to this:
code:
Find this:
--------------------------------------------------
if ($NewTopicSubject ne $TopicSubject && $NewTopicSubject && $in{'ReplyNum'} eq "000000") {
$NewTopicSubject = &CensorCheck("$NewTopicSubject");
@stats = split(/||/,$revised[0]);
$stats[4] = $NewTopicSubject;
$revised[0] = "$stats[0]

Ok it doesnt really matter, because all you are doing is adding my custom sub routine to the ubb_library file. You can put it anywhere in the file, but NOT inside another sub.
What I suggest is you find a line in ubb_library that starts with the word 'sub'
then just above that add my code as it says.

Ok the reason you cannot find this is because you probably do not have the blind editing of subject hack installed, in that case:-
Find this:
$EditedMessage= &PipeCleaner("$EditedMessage");

and after that add :
&Custom_Admin_Log("$in{'UserName'}|^^|$in{'forum'}|^^|Edited the Post - $TopicSubject");

BassTeq,

Your hack seems to be working now. It's very neat. However I did not yet install the routine I'm talking about in my previous posts... I think editing subject or posts will not be logged.

I have a very heavily modified 5.45d, I will try to see if I can find the routine in the original code and see if I can find out what happened to it wink

That was quick...

The problem was this: I had added the hack 'number of times edited', which changed the code into this:

[code][/code]I have added the lines of codes afterwards...

(I still hope I'm making sense here)

Thanks Bassteq for another fine hack!

Ok im hoping this code will be in 5.45d.

Look for this :

#check for excess images-
&excess_image_check($EditedMessage);

And after that add

if ($NewTopicSubject ne "") {
&Custom_Admin_Log("$in{'UserName'}|^^|$in{'forum'}|^^|Edited the Post - $NewTopicSubject");
} else {
&Custom_Admin_Log("$in{'UserName'}|^^|$in{'forum'}|^^|Edited the Post - $TopicSubject");
}

If you have any other problems feel free to let me know.

Bass.....
I have it logging CLOSINGS when threads are closed with the "close after posting" box ticked....

BUT, I am having NO LUCK if I close (or open) a thread using the "Administrator Functions" links at the bottom of the page.

I've been working on a few snippets...no luck so far, but I'm not myself these days!! smile

No worries Bass!! smile I thought I might have gotten a shortened instruction set. It says at the top all the tings you can track with this, and it includes open/close....

I went through all saved files I could find to make sure I didn't hose something up and saved the wrong instruction set.

Sorry 'bout that Lord. smile

The bad(?) news is that my code was OK....but Bass' code was a bit "cleaner" so I have re-updated the zip file.

Both bits of code work, so don't feel rushed!!! I didn't think Bass had time so I was fiddling with the code....then he sends me an update. smile

What I'm working on adding is a way to make it so only Admins can access it...but my free time is dwindling away. frown

Viper, the easiest way so that only admins can access it would be to only give the url to your admins smile Code wise, it wouldnt require much to check for a valid cookie, or add a user login box prior to showing whats been logged.

This works great...

I have some tips though:

1. It would be nice if it would not log the posts edited that are the posts from the moderator. For example JOhn, who has moderator rights, edits his own post and gets logged. This is not nescessary, only posts edited by John that are not his should be logged.

2. It would be very nice if you could figure out what exact post was edited. I don't know if this is possible though.

The reason is I like to have a close look of what my moderators are editing. Now I only see 'John edited the post in this thread'... I don't know what post, if it was his or not and so if he had a right(reason) to edit it.

Ive made a few changes to this hack :

* It will now not log admins/mod who edit their own post.
* It will also log the username of the posted who's post was edited.

If anyone wants these new mods let me know and ill update the doco.

Viper, sorry to hear that mate, look after yourself!

Zip file updated and emailed to you.

For those that are using an older version please replace the old cgi program with the new one (dont forget to change the path to the log file)
As for the changes to postings.cgi, well I recommend doing a diff on my current installation instructions and my old ones to see where Ive made these new changes.

Any probs just drop a reply and Ill be glad to help out.

I like it! However ... I have a few suggestions.

1) Perhaps a login system should be implemented to the custom log file viewer. That way former admins don't have permission to look at the log anymore.

2) If the thread was started by the thread starter and that user is a non-admin, it doesn't log the user if the thread was deleted by the thread starter. I think it should log an activity by such a user as well.

3) A link to the thread that was moved/edited would be nice as well.

I also have a bug with it ... I implemented the hack in UBB 5.45 if that might be it:

[Linked Image]

When I edit a post in a thread, I get an extra line there ... why is that? Is there suppose to be something there?

Im currently quite busy at the moment, yet again so I dont really have time to work on this hack sorry. As for the first suggestion, just put the link to it in an area of the ubb that only current mods/admins can access. So if they cant find it, they cant view it smile

As for your second point, its an admin/mod logger, not an all user logger smile I've dont it this way to help prevent the log file getting too big. An idea, ive setup my board so thread starters cant delete their own posts, only edit them, that would beg around your problem I believe.

That link can be added quite easily, ill do that when I get a few spare minutes and add the code here!

As for your bug, I basically developed this for my own purposes for 5.47d, but it seemed that a few people where interested in it, so I made it available to the public. I cant assure you that will will work on any other version except 5.47d as thats the only version I have tested it on.

Enjoy the hack!

Regards
BassTeQ
