Off-topic / Re: My Journey with Wedge.

Honestly, I haven't the faintest idea about the current state of SMF.
Had I been forced to guess, I'd have said they were advancing at their own speed (i.e. a turtle?), which after all is the reason why I left the SMF dev team to focus on forking it.
Then again, SMF was born around 2003 or so, and it made a lot of progress in 7 years. While it's natural to understand it wouldn't move at a higher pace in the following 10 years (80% of what's need in a forum was already implemented, what else could be done that's not in Wedge already?), it's a bit of a let-down if it's true they haven't done much progress.

ElkArte is a very heavy modification of SMF. It however focused on different areas and isn't really following the same philosophy as Wedge.
Then again their forum also seems to be more active than mine. But obviously it doesn't automatically mean they're advancing faster.
Also, they really need a designer to help with their forum layout, ahah.
I don't consider myself a designer, but my work on the main Wedge theme, I consider better than what Elk and SMF both did. I really wouldn't mind if I found some of it in their software. Come on, even the little details I focused on back in the day, such as doing some JavaScript magic to have user mini-profiles align along their long posts vertically, now that's done with standard CSS -- in this case, position: sticky does the trick.

Anyway. I'm not here to judge anyone. None of us at Wedge, Elk and SMF make money over our work, as far as I know. It's always a passion project. That all 3 of them are still active 10 years after is a testament to how committed we all are.

Dear "Sabrina" from Paris (?!), I would love to meet you in real life. Please, tell me more about the assurances obsèques you tried to innocently link in your quote to another message! Lol... Spammers are getting creative, I guess.

PS: Lol, this topic is so outdated, the guy seems to have switched to XF in the meantime... I still use Wedge on a daily basis on my other sites, and wouldn't change to anything else for the world, but of course your mileage may vary.
Bug reports / Possible bug with custom fields
live627 « on February 1st, 2019, 12:54 AM »
  • Create a custom field in the gallery
  • Make it a checklist
  • Make it required
  • Make it searchable
  • Edit an item, don't fill that field
  • Observe errors when saving
Code: [Select]
// Add them to the form
  foreach ($fields as $field)
- if ($field['type'] == 'checkbox')
+ if ($field['type'] == 'checkbox' && empty($field['searchable']))
  $field['value'] = explode(', ', $field['value']);
  // Options...
  $value = isset($_POST['custom_field'][$field['id']]) && (is_array($_POST['custom_field'][$field['id']]) || trim($_POST['custom_field'][$field['id']]) != '') ? $_POST['custom_field'][$field['id']] : '';
+ // JTR: preparsecode() corrupts the array by converting it to a string.
+ if (isset($_POST['custom_field'][$field['id']]) && !is_array($_POST['custom_field'][$field['id']]))
- preparsecode($value);
+ preparsecode($value);
  // Do the value checks
  if ($field['type'] == 'checkbox')
- foreach ($value as $val)
- if (!in_array($val, $field['options']))
- fatal_error(sprintf($txt['aeva_cf_invalid'], $field['name']));
  // Nothing set?
  if (empty($value) && $field['required'])
  fatal_error(sprintf($txt['aeva_cf_empty'], $field['name']));
  elseif (empty($value))
+ foreach ($value as $val)
+ if (!in_array($val, $field['options']))
+ fatal_error(sprintf($txt['aeva_cf_invalid'], $field['name']));
  // Set the proper value
  $value = implode(', ', $value);
Features / Re: rewrite theme engine to use Bootstrap
Nao « on September 17th, 2015, 12:26 AM »
I'm sorry, I've never used Bootstrap and have no plans to use it. As far as I know, it's not even a 'theming' engine, it's just a collection of CSS files that aim to accelerate website prototyping. In other words, there's no reason it couldn't be used alongside Wedge.

There is no theme system in Wedge. It's a skin system. It has its own way of doing things -- which is arguably way better and more powerful than SMF's. You can achieve many things with a considerable advantage: you may change HTML and CSS elements without modifying the standard files, just adding to other files you create.

Now that I've slightly caught up on all of this, I'm kind of disappointed that I had...
I've been away from 'forum' software for Years, so have missed on the growth of Wedge.
But I do remember its conception, the reasons behind it, the drama which gave it life.
I remember the Dream, the Determination and Drive of 2 of SMFs talented contributors.
I also remember those which shared the same dream, both public and private.
It was an Exciting time, in which my 'Personal Text' under my avy never stood any truer.

This thread is quite a sad read imo.
But atleast it's honest in some respect...

I can understand Pete's wanting to be true to himself, and I can understand Rene's hurt. Even though he's staunch to hold it in light regard.

Good mates Always have disagreements, that's one of the luxuries of being mates, because mates Know each others strengths and weaknesses and can accept both.
I can keep on with my thoughts, but they aren't really necessary, as I don't know either of you intimate enough to be too opinionated.

I hope all comes right, or is right with you both, Just take a look at Your creation!! :cool: and those which have spawned from it.

Great work guys, and to all of the other contributors. :+1:

Sabre :thanks:
More details about those errors would be useful.

EDIT: Aaand why do you edit your post? Now it has less information than before :D

  • Fixed Aeva embeds to use the new YouTube API. (Subs-Aeva-Sites.php)
  • Out of all these thousands of stupid video sites, I never thought YouTube would willingly break the billions of embeds that point to their site!

Posted: May 13th, 2015, 03:48 PM

Okay, maybe not BILLIONS of embeds, since it's only for websites that do some tinkering with their API before reposting links, but you know what I mean. They could just as easily have redirected the old v2 URLs to the v3 equivalents, it's so sloppy on their part...

You can also include JavaScript files based on your screen size or even platform. :)
Not in CSS but in JavaScript.
