Thanks for the code snippet, Paul; I intend to implement it, for I am sure my miniBB community will appreciate the added protection against spammers and flooders provided by your code.
Does it matter where I paste the code snippet in the bb_plugins file? Plugins I have in place already: CAPTCHA, who is online, disclaimer, pre-moderation, moving replies, and message preview - in that order.
While I believe I can follow the logic of the code, I do not know what the highlighted if statement says exactly
$forum!=0 means If forum is not ... ??
$user_id>0 means user ID is not anon/guest ?
$user_id!=1 means not Admin ?
$isMod==0 means not moderator ?
---> admin and moderators are exempt from quota ?
I probably have got it all wrong (hence all the question marks!) ... I would be grateful if Paul would not mind providing a plain English translation. Understanding what the first line says, I hope to know whether nor not it is necessary to add additional conditions to target specific users (e.g. all new members, or anyone with a low post count, or a particular user ... etc, etc).
Ever thankful -
