Okay.  First off here is a list of stuff that we plan on doing to the Forums/Site assuming it gets approved by Eric.  As more people make suggestions and comments, I will add to the list:

  • Bring back the Solve/Unsolve feature, even if I have to make it myself.
  • Fix the Script section on the main site (This has been broke for some time)
  • Work on getting the forum intergrated into the site, or at least getting a link from the forums to the site so you don't have to go up and edit the URL.
  • Get the user stats on the main page working


Again most of this needs approval by Eric, and it will have to wait till Ober and I get FTP access, which should be soon.

big thumbs up to the solve/unsolve feature :)
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

You could take a look at the PHP formatting. It seems to stop at the first "?>". Example 1; Example 2.
Regexp | Unicode Article | Letter Database
/\A(e)?((1)?ff(?:(?:ig)?y)?|f(?:ig)?)\z/

I think we'll leave that up to the SMF team.

I'll take a look at it.  We rely on the highlight_string() so its always fun trying to figure out which side the bug is occuring :P

Ok testing complete.  Its highlight_string()'s fault :P

For testing:
<?php

	$string = '
<?php
	Blah blah blah <?php echo \'meh\'; ?> blah blah blah
	diggy diggy
	if (blah)
?>';

	echo 'String:<pre>
', htmlspecialchars($string), '</pre><br />Highlighted: <br />', highlight_string($string);

?>

SteelMan there is a mod available for SMF for the solve button but currently it is not compatible with RC2. Mod homepage

Also I am currently trying to make a skin for SMF so it integrates into the site, but I'm not having much luck in adding the columns in. Here is a screenie of the current progress. I havn't done much work on it for a week.

It's looking good.  Ober and I should have FTP access soon, and we can both start working on the stuff that has been way overdue for repair.

Another thing I've noticed is the polls aren't working correctly. All the old polls give a single option "Array".

This is a .44 Caliber Loveletter straight through my heart.

Some of the old polls may not have converted correctly.

I mentioned in another thread that notifications don't seem to be working correctly. I may only get notification for 1 out of 10 new topics in the freelancing forum.

Ober and myself are working on getting FTP access. Once we do, we will look into these problems.

perhaps we should lock all the topics that hinge on the FTP access issue for now.  not that it's your guys' fault, it seems eric has been "about to get you FTP info" for a few weeks/months now.

Yeah... to say the least, he's been dragging his feet.  Maybe we can just get ronald to stop mentioning it?  ;)
