Forum rewritten

ansgar posted 8 years ago in News
Recently I decided to build my own forum software so I'm able to better control spam posts and make posting easier than it ever was.

All user accounts including passwords were imported into my new database. Only the name of the permanent cookie has changed so you might have to login once before posting now.

Email addresses are nowhere displayed, except for the settings page where you only see the more compact options, including a checkbox to turn email notification on replies on and off.

I'm going to add some formatting buttons to the posting form, and maybe some pulldown for smilies. Currently you can only post plain text messages, which is sufficient in many cases.

I'm also going to add support for creating Subversion revision URLs, automatically created if you type
. Same goes for issue ids when you want to refer to a bug report.

I hope you like it!

r1234 should be displayed as link now, does it? Mister123 not ... Revision 1234 ? Or even rEv 1234 . Ah, and issue #1234 ? Or bug #1234 and RfE 1234 also.

Now, each user in a topic thread has its automatically selected color so readers get to know which replies belong to the same user.

Many thanks to lostorbit and his huge database of half a million spammer emails, usernames and ip addresses. HeidiSQL.com makes use of it via API in the registration process.

The best part is that auto-login works at last! :)

Just fixed the auto login with a permanent cookie: If you already had a cookie, that cookie was recreated entering heidisql.com, and the password was double hashed, which made it impossible to login for the 2nd auto login. Now fixed! happy
