Topic: Nice - but...
I was looking for a forum and then i found punbb, what was my surprise when i saw
that there is also a .NET version as i'm a .net developer( but i was looking for a lightweight
php forum). But in the first couple of minutes when i was browsing the beta code it turns out
that the code/project is coded not by the best patterns and practices that should be used
when programing an asp.net site - in other words the code works but the site is created in a
very very bad way. It seem like the code was written by a php programmer who has study
asp.net and knows it but there are some basic and fundamental differences in php and asp.net site
building( also in the live cycle of a website) and i do not only mean code but also good practices like
making a model - view - controller for the site( not in BETA!) or to not make connection to database in pages code behind files( sic!).
So i want only to say that i want to help to develop the .net version of punbb by providing
U with my support and contribution to the project, don't get me wrong it is good idea to make a .net
version and thanks for that but when i look at the code i see things that should never be done in the way they
I don't know what to say more, i think i will wait for your opinion on my thoughts and then
i will start to writing here what U need to or should change to make the project more "asp.net compliant way".
P.S. Sorry for my English it's not my native language, also sorry that sometime i can't exactly say what i mean
due to my language knowledge limitations.
