A few updates to keep you informed about what's going on.

First, UseBB 0.5 is almost ready, only the statistics page and search engine need to be created. This might take a while, so I hope for your patience. 0.5 will have the complete user interface, which means you will notice many new stuff since 0.4.x. Feel free to test UseBB 0.5-CVS out: http://usebb.sourceforge.net/docs/doku.php?id=development:cvs.

Second, the UseBB website has undergone an update, which means we have changed various content and some small layout parts. Notice the "Contribute" link in the menu, which will hopefully lead more people interested in the project forward.

Third, a small discussion was started about the successor of UseBB 0.x/1.0. "UseBB 2.0" should be more feature-rich and compete with the bigger products in the market. Give us your ideas: node/169.

Hi,

in csv0.5 when trying to show profile : some index like birthday is missing. What did I do wrong. If this should be posted elsewere, please move to appropriate forum/topic

Fixed this, thanks.

help help, how do I get it or how to change ? alreday remarked *profile... and set as ''; now new error in panel_profile also on birthday.

I'll remark that out too, but what is the error ? Is it a value in mambers table ?


OK, added field to members, INT(8).
Now, even if month and day are switched (english notation ???) I get a correct value in members, but when reviewing profile I get an error " cannot use negative values"



In file profile.php on line 160:

E_WARNING - mktime(): Windows does not support negative values for this function

Another question : something wrong with STATS ??? it doesn't provide an error but shows like :

 • {location_bar}

• {location_bar}

Ledenlijst · Staflijst · RSS Feed · Statistieken · Admin Contacteren

The age calculation seems to be a problem only on Windows, where mktime() doesn't like dates before 1970. Will look for a solution...

The stats page is still a stub, it doesn't do anything yet.

only on Windows, where mktime() doesn't like dates before 1970.

Typical Windows, where the original developpers never thought about something existing before the first release.

I'll keep it commented out then.

For the stats, maybe just leave the link out, so noone will see it is not yet working.

It's OK since it's a development version. The statistics will be ready within next week or so...

found some hardcoded entries which doesn't correspond to config.php =

post-reply :

			if ( $functions->get_config('topicreview_posts') ) {

//
// Topic review feature
//
if ( !($result = $db->query("SELECT p.poster_id, u.displayed_name, p.poster_guest, p.post_time, p.content, p.enable_bbcode, p.enable_smilies, p.enable_sig, p.enable_html FROM ( usebb_posts p LEFT JOIN usebb_members u ON p.poster_id = u.id ), usebb_topics t WHERE t.id = ".$_GET['topic']." AND p.topic_id = t.id ORDER BY p.post_time DESC LIMIT ".$functions->get_config('topicreview_posts'))) )
trigger_error('SQL: Unable to get reviewed posts!');

FROM ( usebb_posts p LEFT JOIN usebb_members u ON p.poster_id = u.id ), usebb_topics t WHERE t.id

If I'm mistaken, please forgive me.

OK.

When replying to existing post, I get a message that STats/forum doesn't exist

I guess you need to update functions.php, cause the forums statistics value isn't in the database anymore but requested automatically.

Fixed the hardcoded database tables too. Thanks for reporting.

just checked with WINCSV : except my own modifs everything exacltly the same (I have five userlevels)

Where do you get that error about the forums statistic (the complete error)? No errors are appearing over here ($functions->get_stats() has been updated). Are you sure the get_stats function in your sources is the same as in the latest CVS?

cannot yet reproduce because of recent updates, still missing update on post-reply (seem not to be able to get it from csv)

anyhow, it was when replying to a post I just created.

fixed hardcodes in my source (temporary) : error disappeared. Cann't reproduce.

I managed to do it again... and found the error :

dummy me have several installs of usebb (one to work with, one to test, one to modify, and a csv.

As all look the same, I was doing the test with 0.4.1 on databse 0.5 csv.

I'll change my displayed_name to donkey if you change layout of this board to 0.5 csv ;) ;) ;)

Hi,

maybe it is a feature but I remarked that even when a message is closed, I can reply (being logged in as a moderator of that forum.

I believe that when a topic is closed, it should be closed for the mods also.
On the other hand, it is pretty neat to be able to post anyway, no need for special security then.

Replying to closed topics has the same auth setting as closing topics.
