  • Re: A question or two, please?

    1. The expiration routines. How do they work? Under what criteria do they expire threads ?
    2. Should usenet posts be threaded into forums of the same name for easy segmentation? (like COMP.OS.LINUX.SETUP)
    3. If I start a thread in one of the segregated usenet groups, will it thread it out to the named usenet group for reply ??


    Thanks!

      The expire is done on 'number of days old', configurable via control panel.

      You don't have to name the forum the same as the newsgroup. The mapping is done via the control panel. You can assign any forum to contain usenet posts.

        No, not possible and there are no plans to add it.

          Actually, you can do it. Just create a regular expression that rejects everything except the ones you want. You'll need to read up on regular expressions to get it right.

          • Is there a simple test to confirm if you have nntp installed on your box or not? Would prefer to know before I attempt to install one.

            Man, a thread search would be nice on a thread this long uh?

              If you mean the Perl NNTP modules; the best test is to run the script and see what fails It will tell you which modules it can't find.

              You should've seen the last thread!

              • Thx, ff

                I had a weird error situation requiring hours of recovery(thx VB Staff for the how to's!! ) for some non-usenet threads that disappeared. I'm pretty sure that it was not related to this addition, but wanted to know for sure. Your answer clarified it well.

                thanks!

                • So this will allow me to mirror a newsgroup on my server? Won't that take up a LOT of database/disk space?

                  • Strange...

                    Well this is strange... I am testing new threads and replies in my usenet group. When the message is sent, I open up my Agent newsreader and I see the messages that were sent from the forum, BUT the first lines are missing. For example, I type in:

                    Testing the new usenet group reader from http://www.vpforums.com

                    Come play actual pinball machines on your PC!
                    In Agent, the message shows up only as:
                    Come play actual pinball machines on your PC!
                    I sent a reply to another usenet message as well that was only 1 line, and it showed up in the correct message thread in Agent, but only showed my signature. The text I typed was missing! So I'm assuming it's chopping off my first line or 2 of text. Any reason for this? I have the SPAM filter on outgoing messages set to OFF. Everything else looks good! HELP!!

                      Hi,
                      I've been reading up and have tried to construct an expression:
                      [*] >"xxx[a-z]"

                      where xxx is the word that you want to retrieve followed by any letter in the header. Any other posts would be filtered out as spam? Is this along the right lines??

                      Thanks!

                        • Fastforward,

                          I've posted some perl code here .. which may help decode binary attachments.

                          http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...threadid=28992

                          If its not a priority for you ... Hopefully someone here is a perl guru who can help out?

                          I am trying to get clari.* content into the board and they have a lot of articles which come attached with gif / jpg photos.

                              newnews.pl doesn't give any errors

                              any ideas?
                              Still have this problem, can anyone offer some help?

                              Now just MY users get to see the replies and not the people on the newsserver

                              Now i also have the following problem:
