Hey ya!

I'm wanting to open a message board on my website.

I don't have a clue how to go about it.

I did some scouring this morning before work but came up empty in regards to a design I liked.

I kinda dig the Wienerboard setup. I really dislike the EZBoard and Boardhost type setup.

The people I pay to host my website - Freeservers - has a really crappy Corkboard I ain't interested in.

I'd need the following features:

1 - You MUST register to post.
2 - My ability to see logs and IP addys. No one else.
3 - NO ADS AND POPUPS

I'm willing to pay for this service.

Any hearty recommendations?

Send me money. Send your people here. Save yourself the administration hassle.

Turn my regulars into Contributors and you have a deal Guru!

Actually, the only reason I'm looking into it is the fact that a couple of people in the last week have asked if I was going to get one.

I suppose it should also be Moderator Friendly because beyond Basic HTML, I'm a moron.

Danke.

I use phpBB on my site, http://www.ititches.com/board/

I recommend it highly: It's pretty easy to customize and to implement. I have a friend who knows some real web programming that's helping me to customize the board, but most of what I wanted I was able to accomplish with HTML and style sheets.

If you're dusty on the script/SQL side make sure that you get one that has an admin panel. I don't think AcmlmBoard v1.65 has one, CRZ ?

Also you need to take into account what you have access to on your host i.e. you'll have trouble running ASP.NET with an ACCESS backend if your supplier runs an Apache server on a Unix box.

You'll also need to make sure that your supplier will allow write access from internet users (usually they supply a writable \cgi dir that you dump you database in and its OK)

So you need:
1. Find out your server/host type
2. Find out what tools you have access to (PhP, Perl, Postgres, SQLServer, ASP, JSP, etc.)
3. Select a board that uses the tech you have access to. There are plenty around. Quite a few people hae gone to the trouble of doing admin panels as well.
4. Test drive a few to find some you like.
5. If you can be bothered, bone up on SQL and the chosen script lang (step 3). They're not really that hard.

Tell me to pull my head in if you already knew all this

Acmlm board has no admin panel in 1.65, but really, who is left running a stock 1.65? Anyone who hasn't customized their board heavily is on 1.8 or higher.

This board is more wiener than acmlm at this point. There are some things that look the same, but we've implemented most of them ourselves - and probably quite differently than most acmlm boards.

At some point, we should probably ditch the remaining ACMLM elements (basically, the post layout, experience and levels, and non-compliant HTML.

I'd say that even though it looks like acmlm board default stuff, we've altered over 60% of the php significantly by now.

I just get so BORED sometimes.

It's either this or porn recap wrestling do some actual work.

Actually I snuck quite a bit of 1.8a code on here when nobody was looking (and nobody's STILL looking, ba dum bum)

I hardly count the calendar as "quite a bit".

Besides, technically I re-wrote the calendar months earlier, I just never actually made it not look like ass.

//edit: speaking of which, I really need to finish the text only mode and spell checker at some point.

Hey, who knows, maybe if you put in polls (your call), you could make them editable in a way that doesn't fuck them up. (flogs Jesper from the Mothership for doing that... then realizes he couldn't code polls either) That and there's a whole assload of hacks (dunno if the Brothers Zim have looked at or used them) at the DragonEyeStudios.net (forums.dragoneyestudios.net) forums.

As for the Acmlmboard system... if you're really patient, you could probably nab 2.0 whenever that comes out. But CRZ'll probably be recapping again long before then.

Yeah I imagined you guys would be running a tweaked set-up. More making the comment for guys who get hold of a stock'n and wonder why it doesn't run like wienerboard
