      Description

      About a year ago, ICQ operator put down webmessage service (possible due to a massive DoS attack). Since then, phpbb's link to ICQ leads to a webpage with empty search results. It would be nice to have the icq link changed to something more meaningful, like user's profile. Proposed solution:

      In viewtopic.php:
      FIND
      ==
      $user_cache[$poster_id]['icq'] = 'http://www.icq.com/people/webmsg.php?to=' . $row['user_icq'];
      ==
      REPLACE WITH
      ==
      $user_cache[$poster_id]['icq'] = 'http://www.icq.com/people/' . $row['user_icq'] .'/';
      ==

      In memberlist.php
      FIND
      ==
      'U_ICQ' => ($data['user_icq']) ? 'http://www.icq.com/people/webmsg.php?to=' . urlencode($data['user_icq']) : '',
      ==
      REPLACE WITH
      ==
      'U_ICQ' => ($data['user_icq']) ? 'http://www.icq.com/people/' . urlencode($data['user_icq']) .'/' : '',
      ==
