very nice! punbb combines what all the other forums are seeking for

when will punbb 1.3 be released?
only a few days or will it be a month or more to wait?


(25 replies, posted in PunBB 1.2 show off)

have to check it tomorrow. back does not work, maybe that can be done by javascript, too.
@StevenBullen use a browser, pls ;-) i will check ie tomorrow, too.

now, finally, i present my punbb ;-)

find it at: HTML Forum

post formatting works with textile _and_ bbcode to get the advantages of both systems

another thing is the ajax impementation. for those of you who dont know it, search google cool
the index, viewforum and viewtopic pages are loaded via javascript http-request. that works a lot father. after 5 http-request the site is loaded the normal way. the direkt url is displayed, too so you can link pages properly. the hrefs keep untouched for search engines.

hope you like it smile

message( '<?echo $lang_common['did_you_mean']?>: <a href="search.php?'.$q.'suggest=1">'.$suggestion.'</a> ?</p><p>'.$lang_search['No hits'] );

this is wrong. you are already in php. just try:

message($lang_common['did_you_mean'].': <a href="search.php?'.$q.'suggest=1">'.$suggestion.'</a> ?</p><p>'.$lang_search['No hits'] );

//damn.. too slow

I mean you can't make an empty line space without using the p tag.

^ The space I made between this post and that one was done with the return button. That doesn't work with the Textile on.

textile makes this to

<p>I mean...</p>
<p>^ The space...</p>

in my forum (html-forum.net) the space between <p>s is not displayed somehow. its probably turned off by the stylesheet.
then it would marked up correctly. how much space you want between <p>s is your choice.
More than one empty line makes no sense in my opinion.

Or we have to replace lines which contain only \n with <p></p>. therefore the textile class has to be modified.


what paragraphs do you mean?
textile makes <p>s

quote option fixed
the quote option for posts works now. however its not possible to quote posts with empty lines. thats a problem of textile, not mine wink

see download link in first post

Just out of curiosity, is it possible to modify Textile to parse bbcode. That way you would have the best of both worlds with no need to worry about switching between the two.

Would be cool to parse bbcode and textile.. im thinking about it

All seems good expect the quote option no longer works like it should.

i will fix it today

and you say TEXTILE IS EASIER FOR FINAL USER ??? Let me laugh very high.

Everyone has to decide this for himself. I want to give you all bbcode features in textile:
"PunBB.org Forums":http://punbb.org/forums/

bq. blockquote


It might be more difficult to learn but is easier to use in my opinion.

Nevertheless: big thx for your support! big_smile big_smile big_smile

Textile Replacement for BBCode
there are many who want to use textile instead of bbcode.
inspired by this thread: http://punbb.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=8734, i decided to make a mod who provides full textile functions (except own html codes) and is easy to install. the plugin can be installed in 3 minutes.

see the mod in action at http://html-forum.net/viewforum.php?id=9

first of all: what does textile do (for those who do not know)
    *  Replace single and double primes (' and ") used as quotation marks with HTML entities for opening and closing quotation marks (?? and ??) in readable text, while leaving untouched the primes required within HTML tags.

    * Replace double hyphens (--) with an em-dash (?) entity.

    * Replace single hyphens surrounded by spaces with an en-dash (?) entity.

    * Replace triplets of periods (...) with an ellipsis (?) entity.

    * Convert many nonstandard characters (?úß???) to browser-safe entities corresponding to keyboard input.

    * Apply block- and phrase-level structural tags automatically and at the discretion of the writer via quick tags.

    * Allow the quick creation of simple and complex tables

    * Allow the simple application of style, class, id, language and alignment attributes to elements

    * Create hyperlinks and insert images via quick tags.

    * Define acronyms via quick tags

    * Wrap an <acronym> tag around runs of three or more capital letters automatically.

    * Convert (TM), (R), and (C) to ?, ®, and ©

    * Convert the letter x to a dimension sign: 2x4 to 2×4 and 8 x 10 to 8×10


>> Test it here: http://textism.com/tools/textile/

Here is a quick reference:
Quick block modifiers:
Header: hn.
Blockquote: bq.
Footnote: fnn.
Numeric list: #
Bulleted list: *

Quick phrase modifiers:
-deleted text-
+inserted text+

To apply attributes:

To align blocks:
< right
> left
= center
<> justify

To insert a table:

To insert a link:

To insert an image:

To define an acronym:
ABC(Always Be Closing)

To reference a footnote:

But there is already a mod..
Yes theres a mod, however it can only be installed on clean punbbs. If you havent modified your punbb and want to be able to change between textile and bbcode use this mod:http://punres.org/desc.php?pid=42
However you can only decide once if you use bbcode or textile. once you forum posts are written with textile you can't easily switch to bbcode. the posts would be messed up.

the mod really integrates well into punbb.
you can turn textile off and on just like bbcode.
you can turn images off and on just like bbcode.
you can differ between messages and signatures just like bbcode.
your users can't use <html> tags just like bbcode

plus it provides easier post formatting and much more possibilities to do it.
this post would have been easier to write and more structured with textile.

maybe you can somehow link two tables.

searching and replacing in all .php files isn't difficult. you have to use the right programm. weaverslave can do that (http://www.weaverslave.ws/)


(28 replies, posted in Programming)

you have to search your whole punbb folder for
then change the prefixes

should work, try it smile

can someone maybe make this phpbb mod for punbb? http://webmedic.net/released-phpbb-goog … t2577.html
it makes keyword-uls-vt12.php instead of viewtopic.php?id=12

very nice skin.

just the green headings are to bright and therefore difficult to read in my opinion

Great style!

punbb.de redirects to punbb.org now. maybe they build a new website for german punbb users smile


(9 replies, posted in General discussion)

they obviously want to use the page for personal advantage like traffic, pagerank and so on. dont you have rights for the mark "punbb"? then you could force them to hand out the domain tongue

or you may make official urls like de.punbb.org

no sad. im a bit busy this week. i'll release it sometime till wednesday wink

it is nearly proven that google sorts pages which have got the search keywords in the url higher than others. i think that keyword urls play a big role in sorting the pages.
i used phpBB nearly 2 years and made good experiences with keyword urls there.

i changed my opinion of editing urls for post.php and search.php. i think it's better to optimize the link structure by adding a similar topics mod.
so installation of this mod will only take ~5min.


thats excluded in robots.txt.

the links on each post are difficult because you must get the topic name. when you name it today-12-38-28-vt123.php#p123, you have got duplicate content with nice-urls-mod-rewrite-seo-vt123.php

do you want post.php indexed? why?

search.php is worth thinking and i think i'll fix it tomorrow.
