Default Mysidia Adoptables v1.3.0[Security Release]

Just as expected, the official version of Mys v1.3.0 is available to download starting from March 18, 2012. The release of Mys v1.3.x is a milestone of our dev team, and we will be moving forward to a brand new era of the development of this script. The feedback from members regarding the beta version also proved to be helpful to make this security release better than it otherwise would. Also you may notice the usage of objects and PDO's fetchObject() in this release, this is a significant change and will affect whoever aspire to make Addons/Mods for this script.

New Features:
1. Items and Itemshops
2. User Profile Redesign with Tabs
3. CK Editor for Custom Pages/Articles and Shoutbox
4. Dropdown Navtabs
5. Security Improvements
6. New ACP interface and features
7. MyBB forum integration
8. Further Script Improvement/Optimization and Bug fixes

Note: Please check the beta release thread for details of these new features. The MyBB forum integration is available in this security release now, I will post instructions on how to use it. Several glitches have been fixed in the official release too. The missing file admuploadpic.php has been added, the issue of unable to set default theme in ACP is fixed, and the green theme can be used now(it actually works fine with the drop down menu).

Installation Guide:
1. Use ftp to Upload the entire folder Mysidia Adoptables v1.3.0 Beta to your preferred directory, and change the name to whatever you like.
2. Change the CMD of folder "picuploads" to 777, together with its subfolders, this is required to enable user uploading images.
3. Access the installer script at "", follow the instructions and proceed.
4. Congrats, you've successfully installed Mys v1.3.0. There is no need to manually encrypt your password in Mys v1.3.0, so cheers!

Note: The value pepper code can be generated from a website called:, it can be of any length and may contain symbols. Make sure to delete the file install.php after running this script, or your site is potentially at danger if this file is accessed by someone else.

Note: An upgrader from mys v1.2.x is not yet available, and there is no way to update user passwords even if it will be available someday. For members currently using Mys v1.2.x, you will have to force all of your users to update their passwords manually when the day comes.

Forum Integration Guide:

First of all, make sure you have both fresh installation of Mysidia Adoptables and MyBB forum. Open the file /inc/config_forum.php, enter each empty field for the database info of your MyBB forum. Then Change the variable mybbenabled from 0 to 1. The very last step is to disable registration on the forum. It is all said and done, new users will have accounts created from both the adoptables site and the forum from now on.

Note the forum statistics cannot be automatically updated with registration from adoptables site, so run your maintenance tool regularly. The trick is quite simple, go to forum ACP -> Database Backup -> Recount/Rebuild -> Rebuild Statistics. It is not required though, but your forum statistics can be messed up if you dont do this.

Again I appreciate all of you who stayed with me and Mysidia Adoptables when we've made little promises like we did before. Life as a senior is difficult but I try to survive. I can say the same to the other dev staff such as Nyxi and Fadillzzz. This script is nothing without supporters and users, so I owe you all big thanks here.
