    Oh, I think I know your problem, since you mentioned you never added bbcodes before.

    Make sure you enter the example part

    delete the [ / q ] , and just add them as in the install doc.

    in the example just put [q1] test [/q1]

    Could that be it?
    Another thing that's a bit confusing is the 'Use {option} ?' option. It defaults to yes, but you need to set it to NO

      Well, after a lot of fiddling...

      To make a huge increase in the speed, comment out (with the closing brackets, of course):
      "if ($h = $c->head($mid)) {" (in get_batch)
      "if($b = $c->body($mid)) {" (just after the check for spam)

      Then it speeds along, as you say it should (though it doesn't find any to import at the end...)

      So, for this novice perl programmer - presumably "head" and "body" are in a module somewhere, and this module needs reinstalling?
      hehe. I'm not surprised that speeds things up. Those two lines are the ones that actually grab the article (first the header, then the body) from the news server.

      However, by doing that, you have established the problem is probably with the news server and not the script. Do you have access to another news server you can try? If not, PM me your IP and I will give you temporary access to my DNews server for testing.

        Can you remember on what line the script failed?

          First things first: any idea when a version will be available for vB 2.0.3? I'm curious mostly because of the security fix, otherwise I'd be happy to leave it be.

          Any chance you'd work a deal to include your code with their codebase?

          There may be more to the problem, I couldn't immediately reproduce the issue. Will get back to you, but I know I didn't imagine it.

            Where?

            Howdy

            I was curious where I can get the latest version of usenet that has the fixes included in it?

            So far I've started @ VBulletin.org and downloaded Usenet there and then went to view the thread and it was posted that I did not have the lastest version .. so I followed the thread here.

            After viewing 7 pages of posts I've downloaded Usenet 3-4 times because each time I download it I find a fix or another new version ..

            was curious if there was one post that had the fixes and the latest version in one central area that is updated as fixes or new versions come available?

            Where it says Usenet I meant the Gateway Hack :-) not the service that provides newsgroups

              a bug .. o my !

              hiya Paul,

              a little one,

              in the signatures when a url in the format :

              <url="http://www.xxx.com/yy.htm">linkname</url>

              parses (incorrectly) and posts to USENET
              it includes the urlname concatenated to the linkname like

              www.xxx.com/yy.htmlinkname

              instead of

              linkname

              hope this helps ...

                    suggestion for release 12.09



                    Paul, I use multiple news feeds, some fast, some slow, some free, some subscribed.

                    Is it possible to (in a very future release)
                    • sort by newsfeeder (i.e.one login per newnews execution)
                    • spawn a separate task out per newsfeeder group (wishfull thinking)
                    • on exit of newnews (successful exit !!) start a cron job for a random start between a period range start the next x and x+y minutes (or something )
                      x = I need an update at least evey x minutes average
                      y = start no sooner than y minutes from last execution
                      so
                      next start time = now + y + random(fromset[x])

                      super wishful thinking

                    • Howdy again,

                      I've viewed the old thread .. and after 30+ pages I gave up .. it's like I find someone posting about this and the post above and below never mention how

                      okay here is the question

                      I've never used telnet for anything .. so how do I execute the newnews.pl via telnet ?

                      I downloaded a Telnet program from download.com .. just no clue how to execute the .pl ..

                      okay this is edited now :-)

                      I searched and found this

                      wget http://domain.to/your/newnews.pl --output-file=/dev/null

                      However when I type it and put the URL to my file nothing happens.. so I'm thinking that's not it ..

                      Any help would be great ... maybe this will help some other non-telnet users out ..

                      • perl

                        goto the directory where newnews.pl is installed then type

                        perl newnews.pl

                        I advise you to be familliar with what you are doing. This change to vBulletin is NOT for the faint-hearted.

                          I would agree with that. For this user, at least, the extra perl overhead has sadly meant that my little server can't cope with running it at the moment.

                          I think I'll try again later at some stage, but perl is now vaped (again!) from my server.

                          • can't resist chiming in

                            Sinema, I needed help with this hack. I even know quite a bit about Telnet. But I don't know how to install Perl modules or "read" the newnews.pl script. You may want to hire a professional Perl person to assist you getting set up. It wouldn't take them more than about two hours.

                            You also need a paid NNTP feed.

                              • Not sure I understand. Can you elaborate?
                              • spawn a separate task out per newsfeeder group (wishfull thinking)
                              Possible, and with Activestate now supporting 'fork', it should work under NT aswell. The problem is the load. On large batch jobs, the many successive MySQL inserts already causes a high server load. Imagine the problem with 3 or copies running simultaneously.
                            • on exit of newnews (successful exit !!) start a cron job for a random start between a period range start the next x and x+y minutes (or something )

                              x = I need an update at least evey x minutes average
                              y = start no sooner than y minutes from last execution
                              so
                              next start time = now + y + random(fromset[x])
                            Yep... good idea. I'd probably make use of this so I'll look at adding it sooner rather than later

                            • Just to clarify, I read correctly that this isn't 2.03 compliant yet? I have the old release installed but I want the new fixes but will wait if the new version is still in dev.
