Title: A couple possible updates =D
Post by: BerryBlood on January 29, 2011, 02:56:40 PM
In the coming months I'm going to be playing around with looking at different forum software. This all depends on the level of stupid SMF is or becomes. Currently I'm looking at some comparison sites to see what's out there and good and usable etc. phpBB is kind of a last resort imo. (As when we used it I really hated admining it.) http://www.test.berryblood.com/ will be where I will play with anything though before attempting to port over.

It's not a certainty though. >.> All this from looking at how to fix the stupid youtube tags. They don't show the video as far as I can tell. (Apparently SMF has been dicking over any one that speaks up about how they're doing things. Hell, they even banned one of the original creators of SMF from the forums. >.<)

So, any suggestions or opinions on different forums that anyone has used will be appreciated.

And until they put a reliable auto installer for the board or mods in that thing, I'm not touching it again. They're talking about it for the next build, but it now reads like they're not turning it to a full installer. I think they're confused as to what one is. And the automod mod apparently doesn't even fully work anymore. And ModX is a fucking joke. It doesn't help install the mod, it makes it color coded but it's still the same process of hunting, editing and praying you didn't fuck up anything with your inexperience with the code.
