Post CONVERSION - How To Convert phpBB 3 Code To Icy Phoenix [NOT VALID FOR IP 2.0] 
 
Hi all,
here is a small guide on how to adapt some phpBB 3 code to Icy Phoenix.

This how to doesn't include all possible code and combination, but it is just a small reference on the core vars and functions you are likely to find on almost every phpBB 3 page.

This guide may also result useful when trying to port phpBB 3 MODs to Icy Phoenix.

I have also added a file that could help you into the converting process, by automatically converting some basic phpBB 3 vars, functions and classes into Icy Phoenix ones. This file will be included in standard package of Icy Phoenix for the benefit of all who want to use it.

How to use the file?

Put it into includes folder and include it where needed:

FIND:
Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
define('IN_ICYPHOENIX', true);
if (!defined('IP_ROOT_PATH')) define('IP_ROOT_PATH', './');
if (!defined('PHP_EXT')) define('PHP_EXT', substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1));
include(IP_ROOT_PATH . 'common.' . PHP_EXT);


ADD AFTER:
Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
include(IP_ROOT_PATH . 'includes/functions_phpbb3_to_ip.' . PHP_EXT);

I've also added a file that you can use to convert some standard phpBB 3 vars, functions or classes... so if you forget to convert something, or don't know how to do that... with this class you may hopefully solve some problems.

If course... it would be better to manually convert what needed... but just in case you don't have the skill...

If someone uses it, please let me know...

thank´s MG . I´ll give this a try, cause i´m still stuck with this countdown date stuff

Edit:

Got to do this because the server want let me post before another 6 hrs.

Hi MG

Gave your little function script a try on my local test enviorment.

something funny happend.

get 5  errors from common file

I took an original PHPBB3 script off the MOD i´m trying to port, just for testing your script.

Put the include in all necesary files, went to my local server, and called the page up .

result was :

Quote:

i gave that script thingy a try and i get
Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ')' in public_html/forums/functions_phpbb3_to_ip.php on line 242


my problem is that i dont know enough about php to know why...  and because i dont know enough, is why i tried to use it.  (lets just say i know enough to have messed up my forums enough times to know why and how i break things, and can usually fix them)  I am trying to use this to get a phpbb3 mod working, but i will head over to the right forum to ask my questions about that.

I have updated the attachment... please try again.


spydie, you didn't define the constants in your file... check IP_ROOT_PATH and PHP_EXT.

Silly question but isn't replacing the phpbb copyright or any copyright for that matter with your own as this how to guide shows a GPL violation?

you are not replacing the phpbb copyright ... you are making a mod that is ported from phpbb... as phpbb.com "states you can remove our copyright notices form your forum but please do not ask for support..."

though that is totally irrelavant from porting a mod from phpbb to icyphoenix... as all icyphoenix sites have phpbb copyright in the footer on every page..

Please note that I have not removed phpBB copyright which is still printed in the footer, and that is the copyright that should not be removed.

The commented string is only for developmental purpose, and all edits in the header are just performed to have all file corrected identified by the SVN system.

Original phpBB copyright is untouched and is still in page footer where it has to be.

Do you mean the form salt?

Open a new topic with an example and I'll help there.
