DLW, Thanks a bunch!

However, I got the following error in the browser when the site would load

Parse error: parse error, expecting `','' or `';'' in /home/tampains/public_html/ubbthreads/ubbt.inc.php on line 1293

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: getmicrotime() in /home/tampains/public_html/ubbthreads/main.inc.php on line 16

Those were due to this line below, which makes no sense to me

1292 if ( ($startpage == "en") && ($firstlogin) ) {
1293 echo <<<EOF THIS IS THE LINE THAT GAVE THE ERROR
1924 <html>
1295 <head>
1296 <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="1;url={$config['phpurl']}/index.php?Cat=$Cat">
1297 </head>
1298 <body>
1299 </body>
1300 </html>
1301 EOF;
1302 exit;
1303 }


Thanks for all your your time and help in this.

Does that whole section look exactly like this?:

Code
<br />      if ( ($startpage == "mi") && ($firstlogin) ) {<br />		   echo <<<EOF<br /><html><br /><head><br /><meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="1;url={$config['phpurl']}/$main?Cat=$Cat"><br /></head><br /><body><br /></body><br /></html><br />EOF;<br />			exit;<br />      }<br /><br />	if ( ($startpage == "en") && ($firstlogin) ) {<br />		   echo <<<EOF<br /><html><br /><head><br /><meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="1;url={$config['phpurl']}/index.php?Cat=$Cat"><br /></head><br /><body><br /></body><br /></html><br />EOF;<br />			exit;<br />      }<br />

Could you email me a copy of your ubbt.inc.php file so that I may go over the code?

Just so that you believe me when I assure you this mod works, you can test it out by logging into my site at http://www.drumlines.org/betathreads and logon using test and password threadsdev.

Check your mail.

I see it did work on your site so I don't see what's keeping mine from working.

All fixed. Seems it was a formatting problem. The instructions on this page aren't formatted exactly how they should be, so use the attachment for best measure.

Yes, the Info/Instructions section in the post is really intended for general information that helps explain what the hack is or does. It's better to include the detailed code changes only in the attachment, unless the code changes are very simple.

Doesn't the link in the Menu PAL box "Call us Home" do this for you?

"Call Us Home" makes the website your home page on your web browser. The hack lets you choose what page page you want it to go to after logging in. Currently you have the option to goto "My Home" or the forum.

The hack is great, it gets the users to your front entrance page after logging in.


P.S.- Still waiting for an sql command to default all users

Oh now I understand.Users that choose not to save their login info (lan cafe,public computer,etc) don't have to make that extra click to go back to the Entrance page. Handy!!

Is this the correct SQL Command to default users to the Entrance Page after loggin in:

Code
<br />UPDATE w3t_Users <br />SET U_StartPage = "en" <br />


Thanks,

I think I installed IIP 6.5 ??
there are so many versions of IIP it was confusing.

in any case this mod says to find the following in ubbt.inc.php

--------------
if ( ($startpage == "mi") && ($firstlogin) ) {
echo <<<EOF
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="1;url={$config['phpurl']}/$main?Cat=$Cat">
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>
EOF;
exit;
}
----------------

I do not find that structure in that file ?
