world of manga

hi,


the address : http://www.world-of-manga.com/

it's in french and this thread is more to present what i did to it :

  • i modified avatar upload, so it resize avatar too big

    ( it's not a lot of code : http://i.imgur.com/nLOXU.png but need gd so would not be good in core, and there is extensions who do it ( but i just needed the resize avatar too big thing ) )

  • quote of user " spoil " add class spoil to it ( http://i.imgur.com/1QzIe.png ) and in css i display it only when hovered ( http://codepad.org/VvuGQLwO )

  • i added a part with new messages, new topics and new activities : http://i.imgur.com/qlEHb.png

    ( it's just with a simple code like http://i.imgur.com/OuAPb.png a little adapted from the code to select forum )

  • i modified "fire theme", to make my own theme

    i wasn't able to modify index, viewforum and viewtopic to my liking, so i did myself the " html"  in php files ( for example i replaced viewtopic by just a table : http://i.imgur.com/fKb5p.png )

  • i used this to detect and choose language for guest

  • i changed urls a little everywhere to have /t33 for topic, /p55 for post /u44 for user, ... ( it took me some times and a lot of change )

  • i redirected /p55 to the good /t22.3#55 ( to not have duplicate url )

  • i did a poll system ( http://i.imgur.com/6N6z6.png ) but i find it a little too much integrated with forum

    there is change to post, edit and viewtopic and field in topics table to indicate if topic is a poll topic ( if yes a poll file ( with choices and votes, which look like this ) is used to save choice and votes )

    i'd like to modify it to have a "separated" system to make a poll, and then when wanting to put it in a post just put [link=http://site/poll.php?id=3] and only need to modify the parser ( or we could go directly to it with link, without embedding it in a topic )

  • i added a tag [link=  ] to embed youtube, dailymotion and a personal website linked to the forum ( http://i.imgur.com/DUBcA.png )

  • i added a small editor ( http://i.imgur.com/hHZtC.png )

  • i added a money system with 2 fields in table users ( num_points with current number of points, total_points with total number of points ), and users just gain points when posting

  • i removed base smiley system and [ s] tag, then i added a smiley system, user can add a smiley ( it cost them 70 points ) and then it can be accessed from editor ( when clicking on "smiley" icon a script ( generated by php ) display all smiley : http://i.imgur.com/Awkz5.png )

    the tag is just [s:number of smiley] so i just check in parser.php and replace [ s:%] by <img src="%" alt="smiley" /> ( http://i.imgur.com/GliKX.png )

    i'd like to do something like ordering smiley by their number of use

  • i've done a simple chatbox displayed by clicking on a link ( http://i.imgur.com/T5uTV.png ) but i've done it using files and i'd like to redo-it with class model and database

and i'd like to :

  • add more things to buy ( now there is just "add smiley" to use points )

  • add permissions won depending on total_points ( a little like stack overflow )

  • add "tags" for topics linked with another website ( the tags would come from the other website, for example in this post http://www.world-of-manga.com/t1355#p12278 there is at top [link=http://e.world-of-manga.com/1] and with that, the tags should be got from http://e.world-of-manga.com/1 ( and shown in viewtopic, on search, ... ) )

  • pm system ( i will probably use one of the mods )

  • add quests ( things to do to earn points, for now the only way to earn them is posting )

  • add permissions depending on total points

It is not, although we obviously appreciate it if you leave the link there.

Re: world of manga

It's okay, nothing we can (or want to) do about it.

I personally think, something like "Copyright <siteowner>, powered by FluxBB" is the best of both worlds.

another quick response, i might download and use fluxbb, lol so nice wink

i was wondering what license is it under?  i heard it's from punbb but how did you guys turn it from punbb to fluxbb? (sorry for off-topic, im just so interested)

i was at the punbb forums but they don't reply for some reason.

can people still take fluxbb or punbb and create something else with it or what? i believe you guys hold the rights to system? which i believe you should sell a branding option for users to pay $ if they want to remove copyright? but still just advice, just saying

Re: world of manga

FluxBB is licensed under the General Public License.

That's why a fork like FluxBB was allowed (and still is, for that matter). If you decide to distribute a fork, though, you will have to open-source it, too - that's one of the things the license requires.

Re: world of manga

ok.. so the only way to call it your own software is if you turn it into another name and have it open source? seems kinda dumb!!! you guys prob put so much work in it why have other people just steal it like that? i guess it's just the GPL license rules eh?

well im going to dl and use it now, i'll get back to you, im testing it vs punbb atm

Re: world of manga

i like being able to not put it on everypage with fluxbb, and i'm integrating a wiki and will probably integrate other scripts ( like image gallery for example )

so I prefer to just list everything I use ( script, images, ... ) in a page, for now it's in a topic identity card of the forum :

Utilisations : le forum utilise le système de forum fluxbb et les traductions disponibles ici


as for licensing, it's just how it is

even if you make a fork and distribute it, all the code you don't modify is still owned by their respective owners, you can just use it in a gpl project because they gave it to a gpl project

so it's not really stealing, it's more " contributing " ( for your changes ) and using contributions of other ( for things you didn't change )


as for topic, thanks crlin, franz and iatkrox

since first post :

- i've added tags [ align=center] [ /align] [ align=left] [ /align]  [ align=right] [ /align] to align to center, left and right since my members asked for it, i just added in parser.php :

	$pattern[] = '%\[align=(left|center|right)](.*?)\[/align\]%ms';
/*...*/
	$replace[] = '<div align="$1">$2</div>';

( and also i added 'align' where needed in arrays in function preparse_tags )

- i changed spoiler ( now it needs to be clicked to open/close, before it needed to be hovered ( but it took too much place when there was a lot of content and it could be hovered not intentionnaly ) )

- i added [new] on index parts with new messages ( not read ) and new topics ( not seen ), and i added pagination : http://i.imgur.com/4G6Sz.png

- i'm integrating a "wiki" system with forum, for example here is an item not linked to a topic, and here one linked to a topic ( in this case we are redirected to the topic and it's displayed on top ), i've still got to :

___ - enable to create a new page
___ - enable to change a page
___ - make a good search system to find those pages
___ - integrate tags ( genres, type, ... ) of "wiki" with fluxbb viewforum and fluxbb search
___ - integrate with other systems ( goodreads, ... )

and that "wiki" system should be finished

- i added last online time on hover of pseudo in connected user list, and also list of users who visited forum last X hours ( i just copied part with users online, and changed it a little to check on last_visit of users table ) : http://i.imgur.com/4C6qh.png

Re: world of manga

hi,


for now just a modified version of http://fluxbb.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=5412

i will see to release some mods from what i did but I must first :

- localize them
- make install / desinstall script
- finish them
- separate style in other file ( i have all in my main stylesheet now )
- making it more modular ( class and so on )

otherway i did a small private message system

Re: world of manga

Hi timconsidine,


The poll system is coded directly into my source code that contain a lot of modifications, and it would take me lots of work to release it as a mod now since I have not done PHP coding for years.

If what you liked was the style and would want to use one of the existing mods:

- https://fluxbb.org/resources/mods/auto-poll-v110/
- https://fluxbb.org/resources/mods/poll-mod/
- https://fluxbb.org/resources/mods/simple-poll/

I could check how to adapt the style for one of these mods.

Re: world of manga

The tag system is very nice. Do you remember how you build it ? I would like the same for my own forum. I have no idea if there is a tag system that for fluxbb actually.

Re: world of manga

Hi, I'm not sure what you mean, there is a system of "information card" that I link to topics

and when the information card type of a topic is for example "Movie", I show it on the topic list:

TaDwAYU.png

The system of information card is not linked at all with fluxbb (besides being displayed on a topic or having the tag shown in topic list) and I currently have no plan to release it (it's old PHP code that has not been modified since long time ago, and I'm trying to rewrite it in python).

Searching the mods, the only one I found with topic tags is this one:

https://fluxbb.org/resources/mods/topictags/
