README.md

SMF Tools repository.

This repository contains a few useful scripts for SMF, such as install/upgrade or repair scripts, database cleaning up, etc. All scripts in this repository are under BSD 3-clause license, unless specified otherwise.

Tool explanation

  • databasecleanup
  • install_script: a (nice I hope :P) template that can be used to create manual installation scripts for mods. At the moment the hook part is fully working, the database part is still WIP.
  • ban_script.php: a script that allows perform multiple user banning at once. You can provide a list of usernames that you want to ban or you can ask the script to scan a board you have collected all the users you want to ban in (the name must be the subject of the topic).
  • fix_packages.php: with SMF 2.0 after a large upgrade (to cleanup forum, not after an upgrade from SMF 1.x) the mods are still marked as installed, with this script you can invert that state.
  • Populate.php: a script that can be used to populate a forum with dummy users (usually useful for testing), originaly written by SlammedDime http://code.mattzuba.com/populator
  • repair_settings.php: updated version of repair_settings.php it supports multiple attachments directory, fix several other problems...oh I don't remember everything! :P
  • smfinfo.php
  • status.php
  • webinstall.php
