The readme file for NukeSentinel_242pl6_70-79 says that if not using Patched 2.9+ "you can still use it, but you will need to make several modifications."

It does not tell me where to find these modifications. Can someone please tell me?

Thanks,
Peter

It's mostly at the beginning of the index file, I think, to determine whether or not you are accessing the script directly. The point the documentation was trying to make, I think, is that it isn't an easy task to make it work with Nuke implementations that weren't patched to 2.9 or later. It was even more fun when the 3.1 patch had different versions that caused some confusion since other modules were based on the first 3.1 patch... Is your head spinning yet? If so, that's a good reason to patch your files first.

Patched 2.7 and below uses checks as follows:
Code:
if ($forum_admin == 1) {

    require_once("../../../config.php");
    require_once("../../../db/db.php");
} elseif ($inside_mod == 1) {
    require_once("../../config.php");
    require_once("../../db/db.php");
} else {
    require_once("config.php");
    require_once("db/db.php");
}


Patched 2.8 uses checks as follows:
Code:
if (defined('FORUM_ADMIN')) {

    require_once("../../../config.php");
    require_once("../../../db/db.php");
} elseif ($inside_mod == 1) {
    require_once("../../config.php");
    require_once("../../db/db.php");
} else {
    require_once("config.php");
    require_once("db/db.php");
}


Patched 2.9/3.0/early 3.1 uses checks as follows:
Code:
if (defined('FORUM_ADMIN')) {

    @require_once("../../../config.php");
    @require_once("../../../db/db.php");
} elseif (defined('INSIDE_MOD')) {
    @require_once("../../config.php");
    @require_once("../../db/db.php");
} else {
    @require_once("config.php");
    @require_once("db/db.php");
}


Patched later 3.1 and up uses checks as follows:
Code:
if(defined('FORUM_ADMIN')) {

  define('INCLUDE_PATH', '../../../');
} elseif(defined('INSIDE_MOD')) {
  define('INCLUDE_PATH', '../../');
} else {
  define('INCLUDE_PATH', './');
}
@require_once(INCLUDE_PATH."config.php");
@require_once(INCLUDE_PATH."db/db.php");
@require_once(INCLUDE_PATH."includes/sql_layer.php");


As you can see we have coded NukeSentinel to use the checks system of 2.9 because it the one that is still in use(modified for 3.2 but functionally the same). So in other words if you want to use NS with earlier patched versions or unpatched nuke then you search and replace:
Code:
if (defined('FORUM_ADMIN')) { --> if ($forum_admin == 1) {

and
Code:
if (defined('INSIDE_MOD')) { --> if ($inside_mod == 1) {


These downgrades are functionally the same but less secure.

The archive is how I was able to make such a detailed listing Wink I'll include this listing in future versions of NukeSentinel as well.
