Basically i started "Online" with Nuke, what a mistake. Seems every "New" version is 10x worse on security issues etc.. But i wont go into that as it might be considered dis-respectfull. Anyhow i switched to phpbb. At the time i was not big into phpbb, nor their sites. So i took on the challenge of a portal. I was used to nukes configurability, so that was a key. Blocks had to be moveable, up & down, left & right etc.. Messages, "Modules", "Content", yada yada . So thats what i made. Altho its not the conventional PHP => TPL setup, this was how i did it. To me php & tpl use is double coding, more work, harder on the brain etc..lol So i use just phps, yes there are a couple downfalls to it, but for the most part it works like a charm. Im not trying to over-ride the convetional ways, nor say they are good/bad, wrong/right, this is just how i do things.
Anyhow heres the changelog, thanks for reading. I will use the code tag since i already have it typed all nice & neat.
