Features / Members ID field after deleting...
« on October 31st, 2011, 04:54 PM »
After deletion, all post records are updated with a member ID value as 0.

This behaviour is logic, but I think is not useful thing: as forum admin it is sometimes useful to search in messages that were written by a deleted user - and in some cases it would be easier to perform some searches with this ID.

What do you think?

... there was a smf community member that replies to every tech related question about smf in about 5 or 10 minutes. :)

I've posted a simple question 30 minutes ago, when will I have a reply? :eheh:

P.S. - Off course: thank you Arantor for all the support you gave me in smf forum in the past. :)

Features / Function createPost improvement
« on May 12th, 2011, 06:41 AM »
Well, this is quite a small thing, but important (I think).

In smf there is the createPost function that creates a post and puts the post ID inside the first array passed as parameter. But it doesn't show the topic ID, useful in some cases.

There will be quite simple to modify the function not to return a boolean value, but 0 in case of errors and the topic ID if TRUE.

What do you think?

(off course, I supposed that createPost is still there... If not, delete that post! :ph34r:)
The Pub / profiles on

Ok, I'm pretty sure that Arantor will reply: "there's already a mod to do that..."  :eheh:

but I have looked for and didn't find... I like the custom profiles here in and in particular I'm looking toinclude the google maps thing (for users location) as well... Can I find the mod anywhere?  :)
Features / Custom fieldsets in new topic
« on May 1st, 2011, 05:00 PM »
Hi! :)

Let me explain what I mean... 

I'm using posts with defined "structure" of content (here an example of such a post), that let me with a simple query select all first messages of this board to parse data and use in other ways (so, I'm using posts like database tables in fact).

Here is the result:

So, I'm thinking that it can be a great idea to define some kind of "board template" (with the post strucure prepared: now the users have to do a copy & paste) or better the possibility to define, for topic start, not the classic input form with the textarea, but a form with customizable fieldsets, that will write the post in the correct manner.

I'm thinking to write a mod to do that on smf - what do you think about? I think that this system will be useful in many ways.... Like maybe support boards (to force users to compile certain fields for example).

I don't know if this can be a default feature for the wedge core, but I'm sure it can be a useful mod. :)
Features / Chat
« on April 20th, 2011, 04:11 PM »
I don't know if this is the correct section, since at actual developement state[1] this thread is more a suggestion request. :)

So, I'm planning to write a chat client that is *inexpensive* for the server running wedge[2]. Inexpensive, that means ideal for forums that are executed on a shared hosting server. :) The system in my mind is very simple: I defined a simple protocol  - something like:

Code: [Select]
[id_member_from:id_member_to:time]hello! :)

where id_member_to can be * for messages dedicated to all chat members and a valid ID for something like IRC query.

The only thing I need now is a free service that in some way can accept requests and store such formatted strings[3]. So the entire system will be done in javascript, with load only on the client side.

What suggestion I need? Well... I only wanted to know if someone knows for such a free service around on the web. :)
 1. I've not started coding yet :P
 2. ok, right, I've to write it for SMF now, but I prefer to write Wedge in this post! ;)
 3. I don't know if I can handle this with gmail, for example, where the subject is the header and the body is the phrase - but I prefer something more simple, like a free postit server or... I don't know!

The Pub / What about the blog module?
« on April 10th, 2011, 04:35 PM »
Hello! :)

I'm planning to implement a blog system on my forum. So, as I'll move to wedge as soon as it is ready, I wanted to know if there is a system that uses the same DB tables / structure and - if that is not the case - how has the tables to be build in order to maintain the compatibility with wedge.

Thank you! :)
Ok, we can't have a look at wedge at the moment.... But... Is there some document to read / study? Just to be ready - I can't stay there and wait without doing nothing! :yahoo:

Another question: are there many differences between the core smf db tables and the wedge one? I mean - I know that wedge has many feature smf haven't - but I guess if the "forum stuff" tables structure are the same. :)
