QuoteThat's because the authors don't test it with the calendar - because they don't use it either...
QuoteYet many long time members here talk about it as a nuisance.
QuoteA lot of people here say that - 'performance'... but but as our computers still obey Morse law and bandwidth keeps growing it s hard to believe it is such a big issue as time passes.
QuoteThe IPB way is a pain in the butt - I tested their system. Plugins full of bugs and when I used it 2 years ago the events didn't have comments - whats the point!That's the great thing about SMF having it as a topic linked, you can reply as sign up and discuss an event as a thread. Good idea.
QuoteAnd why build a separate comment system for the calendar when a good one exists already, with an announcement system.
QuoteI would stick with 1 system - post a topic and have a link button. Now it doesnt work uniformly by having post from calendar.
QuoteOh, and writing a new 'comment system' needn't take very long. A competent SMF developer should be able to get a basic one working inside a day, probably less.
