So this is what I've been working on lately. New board software!

The goal is to replace ABXD. Development on ABXD has slowed down, with xfix leaving, then StapleButter leaving too for Blargboard. The code quality wasn't very good either, which further killed my motivation to work on it.

So, this new project's goal is to produce a new board software, with similar features and look and feel to ABXD/Acmlmboard. Rewrite from scratch, with clean code, using templates and classes and stuff.

I'm also trying to focus on simplicity and ease of use. This is why I've unified the quick reply, the newreply page, quote vs multiquote, etc. Also some not-very-useful features that overcomplicated both the code and the user interface have been dropped: PM drafts, mood avatars and probably more.

I've put it online at the link below. Note that the new board and the current one are running against the same database, so you can use both at the same time without any problems. It's not two separate forums. Posts you make in one board appear in the other, same for everything else. So I encourage you to start using the new board for posting and stuff, and report bugs and stuff and tell me what you think in this thread!

--> http://nsmbhd.net <--


NEW STUFF that's not on ABXD


- Post drafts! Write something and it gets saved automatically. When you come back it's still there waiting for you. (Also for new threads and post edits).
- Much more fancier posting!
- More coming soon

To-Do list


- View counter
- Smilies
- Mark forums read
- Online users
- Profile pages
- Edit profile
- List user threads
- Private messages - WIP
- Thread tags (need redesign though)
- Porting themes.
- Hooks for plugins (Design and implement)
- Moderation (thread edit/delete/close/stick, post delete) -- trash and delete left, need settings system first
- Lots of admin panel stuff
- Uploader. Maybe also easy way to attach images and stuff to posts.
- Search (Only Google search, internal search is not cool)
- Karma (plugin)
- Wiki (plugin)
- Sprite DB (plugin)
- IRC reporting (plugin)

Not-To-Do list


(These features will be REMOVED)
- PM drafts
- Mood avatars


Known bugs


(no need to report these!)
- NEW markers break when editing the last post in the thread.
- Some stuff looks ugly

I have rarely seen them used (In fact I think they're half broken).

They may come back later as a plugin though, but they will definitely not be integrated in the core board.

Any idea why that's happening, by the way? Apparently, each post you make at new.nsmbhd.com make your post count like that. But why?

oh wow lol, it was a stupid bug. Thanks for pointing it out, should be fixed now.

Testing testing testing...

EDIT: Yup, works! I will work on fixing the broken posts, because the DB recalculation doesn't fix these post numbers...

Looking great so far! I can finally jump straight to the first new post!

Also, I think post attachments would be a great feature. It would stop a lot of people from hosting their images on other sites that eventually delete them.

Yes, an easy way to attach images and files to posts is planned!

I think what i am going to do is trash the current uploader, and write instead a generig "upload something" button that will be used everywhere you might need to upload something.

For example, a button in the post box that says "upload image". Click it, select your image, then it will upload and insert the img tag automatically. No more going to the uploader, uploading the file, copying the link, pasting it back!

I think ill also use the systen for avatars and minipics, the current one is shit and has problems with the browser cache.

Are you ever going to make a top navigation that's fixed to the top of the page when your scrolling or are you going to stick with the sidebar that follows scrolling?

Both! Have you checked how it's done right now?

I don't see why you are asking this

Uhh...the minipics are missing...

...but I don't care a lot of them, because I don't have one.

EDIT: You also forgot the themes, the tags and the views counter.

Good catch. I made them not show on the mobile layout because they would lag the browser and cause the sidebar menu to animate shitty. They should show on the desktop version, will fix it later today

Edit: I haven't forgotten them, they're not implemented yet, they will come, don't worry

I should add them to the to-do list, yep.

EDIT2: Minipics fixed!

I mean...they are an important feature of ABXD.

By notifications you mean the "new pm/profile comment" thing? I will do them when I do Pms and profile comments.

And please stop taking the to-do list so seriously. It's not supposed to be UberComplete. I will only remove features that are explicitly on the not-to-do list.

A new name for the new board software? How about NGAB [NextGen AcmlmBoard]?

Also, can we contribute to this new board software, or is it closed-sourced?
<Silvreus>It has been 1 month, 4 days, 2 hours, 21 minutes and 3 seconds since I last remember being lazy.

Thierry: yes, writing a new board software is replacing abxd.

Lunarius: i will probably opensource it later on, when its more mature. And yes, i gotta think of a name for it...

Hum, dirbaio... You see, the images hosted on the old nsmbhd works perfectly on the old board, but how about the new?

Will work:
[img]http://nsmbhd.net/get.php?id=4100[/img] <img src="http://nsmbhd.net/get.php?id=4100"></img> <img src="http://nsmbhd.net/get.php?id=4100"/>


Won't work:

<img src="/get.php?id=4100"></img> <img src="/get.php?id=4100"/>

People uses the way n°2 to make thier images load faster.

But it won't work on the new board, and I guess nobody is interested in editing 38000 posts to fix this. And more. It will affect the whole website.
