I am first time here, 2 days ago first time downloaded PHPBB2 and now doing some modifications. I am experienced programmer and but not experienced with .php and .mysql. Who care ... all of that is same, sql is sql and .php is not problem (because I am very good with .asp and html standard).
My modification is quite usefull (for me at least) but ... why shall not be uploaded ?
Because I am not totaly sure where need to modify all needed and I doing that quite simple for me, removing unnecesary code and adding aditional code. Without very good documentation this is usual for many people, so, in order to become MOD here need two stufs :
- help from PHP team members in order to made that better and to avoid unnecesary code removing.
- help from less experienced users to made documentation (I am not lazy, point is that someone who didn't have my idea in the head need to understand that). Also, those less experienced users can learn a lot because will have my help.
Examlple : I removing forum registration, forum email and password change and will made remote administration from another web site. Other details, like home page or icq number users can modify on this web site. In order to do that I had to modify :
and to do redirect for option "register"
for EACH template
and to remove emai/password modification
all other is new code, new .php page which receiving instruction from one IP address only, basic sql operations etc ...
Point of this mine post is :
Maybe good idea shall be to made working groups : I doing some modification, making one topic and explain what I will do. Other members can join group and help, more experienced with advice, less experienced with testing, doc, etc ...
