  • Another UBB-Like Forum!

    Hi people! I know that vBulletin and ezBoard are great in many aspects. However, there's a little known site called Hardware One that sports its own in-house bulletin board! It has just been launched apparently and they are requesting for comments.
    So how guys? Should we give them some good 'ol ideas?

    Here's a convenient link to the forum.

    Maybe good for asp users, don't like the OpenTopic style lightbulbs though!.

    One bit I did like was the Javascript thing where you clicked on the smiley you wanted and the code appeared in your text.

    I also noticed many of the graphics have been lifted straight from vBulletin.

      I do not think it is done by ASP. It says here http://www.hardware-one.com/default.asp?page=2#7169 that it is done in PHP with mySQL, similar to vBulletin.

      Mark: It is incorrect to say that the graphics are lifted off from vBulletin, as I have seen all these icons on other UBB forums too. I too like their Javascript smiley toos, way cool!

        Well, this isn't a suggestion, nor is it feeback related to the vB. It's just an ad for another board.

                The Admin on that Forum said this:

                FYI, Jawbreaker is coded in PHP 4 with Zend optimizer. As for the licence of Jawbreaker, I feel that it is not ready for public release, so we have not decide on which licence to apply.
                but the pages show .asp as the extension

                  It doesn't matter if the extension is shown as .ASP. A lot of people are confused and 'tricked' by naming conventions. For all you know, a webmaster can easily rename all his pages to .abc, and tell httpd to parse all .abc as PHP extensions. So, are you telling me it's written in the ABC language?

                  A more accurate representive of what the script is running is probably by checking the webserver. Either go to http://www.netcraft.com and check out what is the webserver running on or if you know some HTTP commands, you can telnet directly into port 80 and check it out.

                  Hope this helps.

                    I know that you can do that, but why in the world would that hardware-one thing want to?

                      Hey, beats me! But I guess it's just 'personal' perferences.

                        Well, it is up and i am accessing it now. It seems very fast too. In term of features, it matches those of vbulletin and UBB. Just wondering what license will they apply to JawBreaker?
