 :) very cool mod Cheschire , would be good for movies to

Justyne

okay... my comments:

#1

It is so much faster. Posting, accessing sites. Whooooohoooo. Well done.

#2

Finally the permission center isn't such a pain anymore. This rocks.

#3

Very impressed with template system. This comes really handy and I find it much more understandable and less likely to F*** up than the way it was done in YabbSE. I just made two templated after the new standart and it was much nicer to do than ever before.

Congrats on that one.

#4

The calendar data did not get converted right. I had to delete all my events and post them again. Assume the upgraded.php made an error?

#5

Like the individual stats for every user being accessibly from the profile. Neat ;)
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.

Wicked Sick! Cant wait till it goes public!

If anyone is having trouble with their calendar data, please send me a copy of your calendar and calendar_holidays tables..... the ones that are messed up.  If you have working ones from -3.1415 they would help to.

You know I thought about that actually... If I get to the point where I am very happy with how this database works, I was thinking about expanding it into movies, books, etc. A media database if you will...

Martje

great , a media database, I can sure see some use for it.  I think you would have a very powerfull mod there  :D

I will think how to come up with a reason to implement the music database to my site, before my next staff meeting... a hostel and a musicdatabase.... hmmm why not ;)

I like it! Would there be anyway to set it up so forum members could add data? (That way I don't have to do it all myself  :P)

yep. i just set it up with SMF permissions yesterday, and now its just a matter of going through and sectioning off parts of the admin page so that you can give certain groups only the ability to edit lyrics, and give other members the ability to add everything.

There are two pages, admin and view.

The view page has 2 permissions right now, and will have 3 permissions before hte next release. Right now it's View, which controls access to the page. The other is Rate, which allows users to rate items on a 5 star system. The next permission to be added will be reviewing, when I add the ability to write full text reviews of items in the database.

The admin page will have modify, add, and delete rights. if you have any those, then you will be allowed to access the admin page but only for those rights that you have.

btw sorry to anyone who tried to view it today. I turned off access while i was working on it. I didnt want anyone trying to rate things and destroying the whole database ;)

Martje

tought of another thing you could do with your mod :D

building a database of cool free and opensource proggies :)
I think this mod has a lot of potential ;D

Yeah what I may end up doing is making it a REALLY generalized mod, where the admin will choose the columns, what they are called, what data is entered into each column, the size of the column, etc.

The music one is coming along nicely as it is, and it has a lot of details that would not fit into the generalized mod i mentioned above, however both mods are useful.

seems many people feel like this.  I really can not understand why announcements are being made that the Forums at YaBB SE will be closing when simple machines is not even released.  All of our forums run YaBB but we can not bother doing development work until we see what simple machines will do.   There is no way we can see if we wish to stay as we are or go for the change and the delay after delay is really just not acceptable.

Please set a date and let us all get on with the rest of our lives and tasks.  Oh and yes I do appreciate the effort that goes into making free programs but I do not like the eliteism that seems to run with SM, some of us just can NOT afford to become charter members especially at such a late stage!

Chris Cromer

They are just giving advanced notice to YaBBSE being closed down, which in my opinion is better than just taking it down suddenly and nobody know what is going on. SMF will be released soon, so it isn't like they are just cutting off YaBBSE with no alternatives.

Well, considering SMF is in it's final Charter beta before being released for public beta. They've said that YaBB SE is closing on the 31st March.

Maybe they're confident that there will be a public release by then?

even when YABSSE is closed down you still have a good product up and running: there haven't been many bugs reported around the 1.5.5 (except the post.php one) - so don't worry too much about that. I am quite sure that there will still be a couple of helpful hands for yabbse around, regardless whether the official website is closed down or not.

If SMF can convince me, I will move - if not, I will stay with yabbse.
