Error3 means that you have to configure Who's Online Setting in the Control Panel. Don't know why your vars_wordlet_mods.cgi was overwritten, maybe it had to do with your who's online setting.

Most likely, your cp.cgi was not hacked properly. Remember when you "grab the other required files" wordlets_mods should be one of them.

Are we talking about the same thing here?! The purpose of the Upload Hack is so you dont need to use a FTP program. The user click Upload Form and then they upload a file through the script. upload.cgi seems to be corrupting the file, does anyone know why?

Ok, the upload works well. But a file with the name "img.jpg" shows up as "1787826.jpg" (???)

Also..it shows the url to the uploaded image, not the code to show the image between ubb code tags. Can this be changed?

Tnx in advance....great hack! wink

I also would like to know if you could add an option to allow the user to name the file or leave it the same as whats being uploaded. It would need to check for the files existance prior to uploading just for safety sake.

I am using this to upload pics and display them in the post that I upload from, the code added is the URL tag and not the IMG tag on the results window, how hard would it be to add a toggle in the CP to allow linking to the file (URL tag) or actually putting the file in the post if its an jpg or gif?(img tag - we are only using it for pics)

Stormy

I was having the same problem as you. On my board, I will be restricting image posting to 640x480 or smaller. For larger images they would need to upload that picture and post a link. There for I modified the Upload hack to meet my demands.

here is a sample of what my modified version of the upload hack looks like. If it's alright with LK I will show you the coding for this change, which really isn't that hard to do. But I want to get LK's permission first.

[Linked Image]

P.S. LK - I read the PM you sent me back but that version is for 6.0 which has alot of coding different than 6.1.0.2. Are you going to be adding the option in the 6.1.0.2. version of this hack to pick a random number, user name, or number? I'm not a coder so I wouldn't know where to begin... Thanks...

Thought everything went great but when I click on "upload an image" I get the following error at the bottom of the window:

Software error:
Can't call method "close" on an undefined value at /webdata/www.colorado4x4.org/cgi-bin/ubb/ubb_lib_filehandler.cgi line 83 during global destruction.


The file uploads fine and the followup window does not have this error text at the bottom. Any idea what is causing this? I have re-hacked and double checked each step but I see nothing out of place frown Any help appreciated.

Also, for the 6.0 mod I had altered the code to preserve the filename as opposed to this version's method of renaming the user's file to a string of numbers (yuk). I lost my mod when I upgraded, so if any of you know how to preserve the filename please share. Otherwise I'll figure it out on my own again eventually smile

OK, to retain the filename you need to edit upload.cgi as follows (note, most of this code comes from the 6.0 version of this mod):

Find:
Code
code:

Change this to:
Code
code:

That's it. However, I took this one step further and disallowed overwritting files (since file names are no longer assigned). To do this:

Find:
Code
code:

This is just the error message so I changed it to the following:

Code
code:

Now to ensure the file can't be overwritten:

Find:
Code
code:

and replace it with:
Code
code:


That retains the file name and ensures that they can't be accidentally overwritten.


I'm still stuck on the error I mentioned above though. For now I just set the window size so it trims off the error message at the bottom :rolleyes: but I'd really like to know why it's there to begin with. Oh, one more thing... in public_new_topic_form.pl,
public_new_reply_form.pl, public_edit_post.pl, and public_pm_form.pl the mod specifies some javascript code for the upload window. Purely cosmetic, but in each case I set toolbar, location, menubar, scrollbars, and resizeable all to no. Finally I ditched the spaces at the top of the upload window. To kill that space go to upload_form.cgi, look for

Code
code:


and simply delete the

part.


That's the extent of my own tweaks to this mod, any help on the error I mentioned would be much appreciated smile

To get rid of this error, open file "upload_form.cgi".

Well guys,

It is 4:00am and I'm packing it in. I can get the upload to function but the file that is uploaded is corrupted. I can see the right colors of an uploaded .gif but it doesn't look right. Any ideas on how a file would get corrupted during upload?

This is an NT 4 server with IIS4. The file gets up there but it is messed up.

Thanks,
Tim H.

Tim,
Im having the same problems.
Are you trying to upload the file from the same computer that the site resides on? I have a feeling thats why mine isnt working. Once I deploy, Im hoping it will magically fix itself!

Tim, I'm not sure that I can help much, but you might want to check and make sure that all your write permissions are set right for the upload directory. I'm not sure exactly how you would do that for IIS... If I have time, I will setup a test board on my IIS machine and see if I can get it to work. If so, I will let you know what I find out.

Everyone else, if you are interested in displaying both the URL code and the IMG coding after your user uploads check out this FILE . It's pretty simple and I made it as cut and dry as possible. Enjoy

Tom

No, I'm using another machine at my company's home office that hosts the folder. I have control and get the file created but the contents are corrupt. I'm going to make up some known content binary files and see how they get corrupted when posted.

Later,

AH HA! laugh

I got it!

When using the upload hack on NT4 you must add the binmode function just after opening the file and BEFORE using the filehandle.

My NT or some variant of the PERL library etc. opens the file in a text mode and translates 0A (linefeed) to 0D0A (carriage return, linefeed). The corrupt file was filled with 0D's that shouldn't have been there. They were next to each 0A that was in the original graphic file.

Open upload.cgi and find...

undef $BytesRead;
undef $Buffer;

while ($Bytes = read($File_Handle,$Buffer,1024)) {
$BytesRead += $Bytes;
print OUTFILE $Buffer;

And add just BEFORE it...

binmode OUTFILE;

I tested this on text files as well and the file was created identically. This only needs to be done on an operating system that distinguishes between text and binary files.

Great hack by the way, I have learned a great deal during its installation.

Thanks all,

Tim

MHK (2.0 version) written for this one, if you want it:

https://www.ubbdev.com/db/cgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=22;t=000011

I didn't include the the instructions to edit the pm template files, you'll need to add that yourselves if you want it. This one also includes Tim's change from the previous post here, if that makes any difference to you.

Added and tested on our database files, 6.1.0.3

OK, here's a question / feature request for ya. How would I go about restricting upload permissions to specific users? Perhaps another profile field (1 = can upload, 0 = cannot upload) and a simple if-then statement perhaps? Not sure how to go about this, but I REALLY would like to be able to restrict upload permissions. Any thoughts?

Anyone? Beuller? Anyone?

I'm trying to figure this out on my own and not having too much luck. I don't mind editing profiles manually if need be or I'm fairly certain I can at least figure out how to code that in the control panel, but I don't know how to perform the user profile check & if-then statement in public_new_topic.pl, etc. so that the upload link only appears if the profile flag is set to "1". Perhaps I'm looking at this the wrong way too because I wouldn't want them to be able to just type in the URL and access the upload either. So, perhaps I should be looking at modifying upload.cgi somehow? Check the user profile there when they click the upload link and if they don't have permission they get an error message? I'd still like to know how to check user profile values so that I can display the link only for those users with permission.

Can anyone help me with this? Puhleeeezze?

ELY_M,

have u seen the Attachment File Manager hack?

Demo:

http://www.cannabisworld.com/cgi/po...r=1&forum=Indoor&DaysPrune=45&LastLogin=

http://www.cannabisworld.com/cgi/attach.cgi?PostTopic&3&Attachment

It shows a corresponding image for known filetypes once uploaded, i.e. zip, rar, doc, etc. It also allows all filetypes to be uploaded by default, with options to restrict uploaded to specific filetypes.

Could you make your hack more like this? How about integrating it more into the default posting page, like with a "Browse" button or something.

Also like the way that vBulletin shows you how many times a file has been downloaded.

Hi Ely,

I wanted to bring this upload hack and its features to you also, the one Stunna is refering to above.

I had a couple posts on this board concerning it before I came across your hack here. My first post whihc shows Vipermad had found the hack is: https://www.ubbdev.com/ubbcgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=26;t=000790#000002

I wouldn't want you to change your prog unless you wanted but I am also offering a barter if you could port this old one if you could. My last link I posted on this one is:

https://www.ubbdev.com/ubbcgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=28&t=000473&p=

This link is my offer to any hack that can help port it over for me but also shows some of the details of the hack.

It has all the features I really want. Big thing is placment of uploads directly in the message off to the right, up to three. They enlarge when the user clicks on them. Please visit their and goto post and upload and check it out.

PS: If your interested in any type barter, please PM me.

Thanks for your concideration

Rainner

Hi there,

I want to set up a custom header and footer for the upload form, rather than using the ones in the current forum's style template.

In the file upload_form.cgi, I tried this:
Code
[/code]
Then I added a "require" to the list of required files at the top:

[code]

Then I made the file UploadForm_html.pl and dropped it into the Templates folder. This template simply defines the two vars, $html_header_skusa and $html_footer_skusa.

That way, the lines:
print "$Header_in"; and $Footer_in
in the UPLOADform should print my custom header and footer, right? But what I get is the custom, header and footer together at the top of the page, with the UPLOADform output below it (with the "close method" error described in the last post).

Also, the UPLOADform prints an extra
body tag line at the top of the output page.

Any tips for how I can get the form to display *within* my custom header and footer?

Thanks much,
Getagrip Greg

Hello,

Has anyone had the following error come up in the popup window?
code:

[code][/code]

I can't figure out where the "close" method is being called from. I get this msg in MSIE, NS6, and Opera.

Any help appreciated!

Thanks,

Hi Again,

Great Hack, anyway I changed the hack from previously noted to being able to save the file names as there uploaded. If someone trys to upload a file that already exists, what happens is "File Download" starts...

Any idea!

I don't know how to get it to check if the file exists before starting the upload, but what you should find in its current form is that you'll receive an error at the conclusion of the upload stating that the file already exists (at least that's what should happen if you made the changes I listed). The script currently checks file size and name restrictions AFTER uploading but BEFORE writing the file to the upload directory.

Still looking for an easy/simple way to restrict uploads to specific users. Any ideas? Anyone?

Anyone know a slick way to deal with file names containing spaces? Right now I list instructions for the user to manually replace the spaced with %20's in their image link, but I'd like to be able to automate this. Upload file, check for spaces in name, replace spaces with %20 when generating the link for the user.

Oh, and a way to restrict access to specific users would be nice
