Fix-it: Template Edition

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (14 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 122

Not Supported Additional Files  

A common method of defacing vBulletin sites is to edit the parsed template html directly via the database. It makes it harder for administrators to find the issue, and can be a pain in the ass to cleanup if you're not familiar with working with the database.

This tool will make it easier to clean your defaced site.

What it does:
Checks all of the templates in the database:
- Makes a new compiled version from the uncompiled template.
- Compares the current compiled template to the new compiled template
- If they differ, it updates the template, then rebuilds all of the styles.

How do you use it?
- Upload to your admincp, modcp, install, or root forums folder
- Browse to it
- Let it run
- Delete tool_recompiler.php after you are done using it.

This tool now works on vB3 and vB4.

Thanks a lot!

I'll try this if/when I can muster the courage to run the untested code on my forums

That's fair. I did run it on a test forum and it runs without errors, recompiled a template where I had gone in to the db and changed the compiled string, and didn't seem to have any other effects. But personally I don't think I'd even run the original version unless I suspected a problem.

I see, thanks for testing it. I think what I'll do is run it right after the daily backup of my server, that way if something goes wrong It'll be at most a few hours I lose.

When I try running this file (vb4) I get a blank page. Funny thing is it seemed to work the first time I ran it but got "hung" on a particular template. Now everytime I try to run it i just get a blank page. Any thoughts?

I'm getting a 500 error when I try to run this on my vb4 forum (after changing the parameter as discussed above).

I tried it again and it seems to work - what program did you use to edit the file? Some programs will put strange characters in the file and cause problems.

I used Nano. I think the problem is with the time it takes to run the script (there is no output, it's just loading). I tried running the PHP script from the command line, but I'm getting an error there as well (different kind, I guess the script cannot be run from the command line).

I've updated this for vB4.

I'm curious how I ended up with the false parameter because compile_template only has one parameter in vB3. o.O

How about making this for vb 5 - vb5 is the wave of the future!

I was stuck in vb3 for years but now that I've upgraded to vb5 over all I am glad I made the move.
