Delete My Account

phpBB Extension

Ongoing Project

Current Version: 1.0.0
Last updated May 2017

This extension will add a new UCP tab that allows users to delete their own account.

The Delete My Account extension does the following:-

  • adds a Delete My Account tab to the UCP
  • uses a two-step deletion process with double checks and password confirmation
  • adds a permission to allow users to also delete their posts (this defaults to off) – when a third check-box appears on the UCP page
  • prevents Founders from deleting themselves
  • assigns any posts to the guest user with the name Deleted User plus the users old ID (e.g. Deleted User 342)
  • logs the deletion in the user log
  • uses the standard in-built user deletion process

You can download this extension, from the phpBB3 extension database.

DragonflyCMS Converter

phpBB Converter

No Longer Supported

Current Version: 1.0.0
Last updated February 2013

This converter can be used to convert an existing DragonflyCMS 9.2.x standard forum to phpBB3. This forum is based on the phpBB2 converter as the Dragonfly forums are a derivative of that version.

The converter has been well tested on 9.2.1 but should work well with any 9.2.x version. It is designed to work with the standard integrated forums.

This converter is no longer developed or supported. You can still download and use the converter but you are basically on your own.

I used version 1.0 to convert my own site and had no problems, but there are some limitations, potential issues, some specific conversions and hard-coded values that fitted what I needed and may not suit you.

This converter is a drop-in mod for the phpBB3 installer (just place the two files in the converter sub-directory under the install directory) and a new option for DragonflyCMS will appear in converters screen).

The converter will convert the following data (copying images and files where required):

  • Forums – categories, forums, sub-forums, forum-links, topics, posts, polls, attachments, smilies and topic icons
  • Users, administrators, groups, avatars and ranks
  • Private Messages
  • Common System Settings

This converter does not convert link forums or forum subscriptions.

You can download the last approved version of this converter directly from the phpBB Converters Database, or the final version from here.

Random One Cat Widget

WordPress Plugin

Ongoing Project

Current Version: 2.4.1

There are times when you’d like to have a certain type of post appear in a widget for use in your sidebar or if your theme supported it, your header or footer. Random One Cat Widget allows you to do this. It will display any post, long or short, even ones containing pictures and custom fields, although it is best suited to small text posts.

This Day In History

WordPress Plugin

Ongoing Project

Last updated December 2019

This plugin allows administrators to enter a list of historic events. Events that occurred on this day in past years can then be displayed via the included widget and shortcodes.

You can find more detail and download this Plugin from the WordPress Plugin Directory.

Importing Events

The events are stored in the standard posts table so it is possible to use a standard importer to bulk load your events from a CSV file if you want.  I recommend using Really Simple CSV Importer to do this.  This is the process:-

  • Install and activate This Day in History
  • Install and activate Really Simple CSV Importer.
  • Go to Tools -> Import -> CSV -> Choose your CSV file -> Click Upload and Import

This CSV file must be in a particular format.  Here is an example file you can download.
