I have a phpBB, version 2.0.3. (I will not be upgrading for quite awhile.) For this project, I require that you are familiar with the open-source phpBB (its code, its layout, etc.) and that you know php well.
I need three changes to my phpBB:
I have hacked it so that under the users' avatars in their posts, the open user groups (which I call modalities on this board) that they are subscribed to show up as icons and the closed user group, if they are subscribed, shows up as a word.
1) I want the basically the same thing to show up in the user profiles.
2) I want the users to be able to subscribe themselves to the open modalities. (I do not want to have to approve them.) I want them to be able to subscribe themselves via their profile when they first sign up AND via the standard modalities (group) link at the top.
When I try to change the settings on my forums in the admin control panel, it won't let me, and says, "General Error - Could not update auth table". I must have messed this up with a previous hack.
3) I need it fixed so I can alter the forums.
If you are interested, you may post a comment or a bid, and I will post you back the URL to my board and a temp username/pw so you can see what it looks like.
For the coder I choose, I will send you all my phpBB's files, so you won't be starting from scratch. (I will also give you my MySQL DB info as you need it.) When you are completely finished, please send me back the files you have altered, and in those files, please mark the places you have altered.
Thank you for considering my project!
Complete and fully-functional working fixes/hacks within complete .php4 files, based on the .php4 files I send you.
