Hi Greg
i am being asked to point to ImageMagick when installing phpbb
where is this installed in sme 7 i have installed it via
yum enablerepo=base install ImageMagick
and its there so what do i write fks
/usr/lib/ImageMagick  just a maybe ??

Janm
Imagemagick consists of multiple binaries, but none of them is called ImageMagick. Normally you only need to point to the directory as the executables are known/coded in your application. Usually ImageMagick binaries are installed in /usr/bin/

> I am trying phpbb 3 for now

Please ask for help on the phpbb3 forum.  They warn you not to use that on a live server, so I'd stick with v2 if I were you.  It has been in beta for a year I think so don't hold your breath waiting for 3.0 final...

William, I'm not familiar with freenode or irc in general really.  Do you, or can you get logs of the discussion on the channel?  I was looking at chat room options for contribs.org and freenode seems like a pretty easy solution, and unlike the previous flashchat, irc has more options to connect.  I could easily make a link that would appear in the top menu like this to their java chat client:

...but customized with the logged in user's username of course.

Sorry Greg, I missed your post.

I don't think you can log a channel from within freenode. You have to sit a logbot in it to capture the conversation.

After seeing your post I thought I would give it a try. Heres what it looks like using 'off the shelf' software.

The logger is from here.

Freenode had this to say about channel logging...
Quote from: "Freenode"
If you're considering publishing channel logs, think it through.  The freenode network is an interactive environment. Even on public channels, most users don't weigh their comments with the idea that they'll be enshrined in perpetuity. For that reason, few participants publish logs.

If you're publishing logs on an ongoing basis, your channel topic should reflect that fact. Be sure to provide a way for users to make comments without logging, and get permission from the channel owners before you start. If you're thinking of "anonymizing" your logs (removing information that identifies the specific users), be aware that it's difficult to do it well—replies and general context often provide identifying information which is hard to filter.

If you just want to publish a single conversation, be careful to get permission from each participant. Provide as much context as you can. Avoid the temptation to publish or distribute logs without permission in order to portray someone in a bad light. The reputation you save will most likely be your own.
Regards,
William

I don't think privacy is a big issue.  If we did log the channel, I think having a message when you logged in saying 'This channel is being logged.  A searchable archive is here: xxx' would be suficcient.

I think the search function is the most important part.  I saw a different logbot software here:

No download though that I can find...

Yup, this is what it's derived from:
http://colas.nahaboo.net/software/irclogger/

Do you want to try that out?  The demo (#twiki) log's search functions either don't work or are very slow, where the irclogger2 search is very fast.  I emailed the irclogger2 author by the way and asked nicely for the source code.
