GrimBB Searches Itself

Icon Leave Comment
Cryptic title I know. All it means is that the new build of the board has a cool little feature which is the ability to search itself. It can search by usernames, topics, and posts. It can be a case sensitive search. Furthermore, it can filter out threads based on their original post date or their latest reply date.

PHP Injection Vulnerability Discovered

Icon Leave Comment
As the title states in any version prior to the newest build of GrimBB it was possible to inject PHP statements. What does that mean? Well basically, that at its most fundamental level GrimBB was entirely unsecure. The ability to inject PHP statements into the forum posts meant that you could pretty much read any file on the webserver. Which in...

GrimBB v2.2b Released

Icon 1 Comments
Just when you think it's done you get sucked back in. No such luck for those who thought that GrimBB was dead, but I digress. After about two months of brainstorming/coding/lazying around I figured out a fix for the overwrite issue that GrimBB's database was suffering from. Furthermore, I refined the code to work better, compartmentalized...

GrimBB v2.0b Release

Icon Leave Comment
Been a while since I posted here but why let a good blog die right? In any case, while version 1.4 achieved the basics of what I wanted a forum to have it's obvious that in order to have any sort of popularity amongst users I had to implement avatars and signatures and all that other stuff. I for one don't think it's all that important...

GrimBB is up on a new Webhost

Icon Leave Comment
Sorry if people have been getting errors when visiting the old GrimBB page. For whatever reason PHPNet wasn't doing what it was supposed to. In any case, GrimBB has been moved to http://grimbb.awardspace.com/. As you can see there is also a new frontpage that details what is occurring with GrimBB and the like. This new format will come to...

GrimBB v1.3 Released

Icon Leave Comment
I've updated the version number on GrimBB because of a major overhaul of how it worked. Essentially now instead of creating the text files for each of the entries I need I created an interface class called grimBase. This creates objects which allow entries into it in a database-like manner. So now the entry files are created in the following...

HTTP Status Messages

Icon 1 Comments
Originally, the forum worked that when a user made a post if there was erroneous data it would simply show an HTTP Status Error Message and redirect back to the posting page. However, some people complained it was annoying and I found that I eventually agreed. If you don't know what is and what isn't valid input then it could become rather...

Session Problem Solved

Icon Leave Comment
Not that anyone did or didn't noticed since nobody reported anything here, but for some reason the session functions which were previously working correctly on my webserver stopped functioning suddenly. However, I found a workaround. Rather than using client cookies (the type that are stored on your computer), GrimBB will use server cookies....
