Another big change for SMF 2.0 Beta 2
« on: January 13, 2008, 05:21:05 PM »
Earlier today the devs got together online and had us a nice hour long chat.  One of the things we discussed was the $smfFunc variable.  In SMF 1.1 we have the $func variable.  However, the name could easily conflict with other software so we decided to change the name to $smfFunc which it was from the Alpha version through to Beta 1.

Without giving away our plans for world domination, it was decided that the name didn't fit with out long term plans as it ties it to the forum.  So we changed the name to $smcFunc.  Now what does SMC stand for?  I guess you'll just have to wait and find out later >:D

It was decided that if we were going to change the name that now really is a good time to do it as we've already made one change that touches each query and it would be easier on our mod authors if we made all such sweeping changes at once and then let things settle down.

For change itself is easy to make as you can just do a find/replace for it so we hope that it won't be too much work.

They only know the goal, they don't know the plan ;)

To me SMC stands for "sweet merciful crap" which is a phrase said by Homer Simpson, which was later used by a user on The No Homer's Club a forum I frequently visit for his username. :P

Is that it? :P

You're planning to make a CMS out of the board system, I'm guessing?
Not that it would be a bad idea, of course... ;)

So much confusion perhaps?

I just noticed that the member colour ledgend has been added as a default feature of 2.0? or maybe the mod was just installed?
SMF 7 is where it gets good. That has time travel. You can go back and post before the guy who flamed you. :P
