(Which makes for interesting issues if you don't close the file on a flashdrive before transferring the flashdrive to another computer.  <img rel="&#58;&#45;[" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/embarassed.gif" alt="Embarrassed" title="Embarrassed" /> ) Interesting perl issues causing problems http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1475938837 YaBB Development & Mods/general http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1475938837 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Sat, 8 Oct 2016 15:00:37 GMT The big one at the moment - a lot of variables in YaBB use zeros to designate 'position' or if something is turned off - which is fine if something is turned off and it only matters if the value is on or off but not so fine when you need to check if that variable actually has a true value (which is good practice) and perl knows that 0 is <b>not</b> a true value.<br /><br /> <img rel="[smiley=wallbash.gif]" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wallbash.gif" alt="Smiley" title="wallbash" /> Checking in, and largely checking out http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1468379268 YaBB Development & Mods/general http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1468379268 bill@myersproductions.com (Bill Myers) Wed, 13 Jul 2016 17:07:39 GMT The Verification Code anti-spam option you've enabled here in this forum is superb, and older versions of YaBB can hand edit a primitive version of it that works just fine. I've used the primitive version for a 2.4 forum for years that allows instant registrations, and it's worked like a charm.

But on the SQL side - After I have my other major 'fed by flatfile' site updated and converted to SQL (but <b>not</b> PHP), I'll start working on converting YaBB to DB with well optimized queries. (But it won't be this month or possibly next - the site I'm working on is HUGE and I'm learning how to optimize the queries and processes as I go.)<br /><br />Note to everybody: We've already determined that we will not repeat the mistakes of 3.0. Once a YaBB install is converted to DB, it won't be backwards convertable from within YaBB. BUT, once it's done, we should be able to create converters to import data from other forum programs.<br /><br />Now if somebody has time and the inclination, we still don't have a Mobile template.  <img rel="&#58;&#45;/" src="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/undecided.gif" alt="Undecided" title="Undecided" /> Dandello's todo list http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1414849895 YaBB Development & Mods/general http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1414849895 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Tue, 27 Jan 2015 23:16:30 GMT Advanced TimedBan available as Mod: <a href="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1422234354" target="_blank">here</a><br /><br />PM Reply to all now available as a Mod: <a href="http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1422047388" target="_blank">here</a> Won't be around for a few days ... busy working http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1421468422 YaBB Development & Mods/general http://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1421468422 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Sat, 17 Jan 2015 15:57:12 GMT Quiz mod needs more work for 2.6.11 - I'll be getting back to that early next week.
