For good reasons, I would like to track all changes to a particular phpBB forum -- new posts, edits, and deletions, essentially like what Wikipedia has. I'm running into a bit of a roadblock about how to do this. In principle it is simple. I found the following tool: WebSite-Watcher
, which does some things like this. However, there remain a few complicating factors, mainly that there are certain changes I don't care about and don't want to show up in my version control.
For example, if user Joe writes a new post, the line "Posts: 12" changes to "Posts: 13" next to Joe's name on every thread that Joe has posted on. I don't want this kind of change to be listed.
My goal is to be able to archive this website regularly, and navigate through time to see which changes were made when.
I know how to program, but hope someone can think of a way to do this without creating a big programming ordeal. Is there a relatively simple way of implementing this?
