in reply to UBB Ultimate Bulletin Board

Hi, I'm the guy in charge of maintaining the UBB source.

No, really, I am. I have a login here, but I'm not using it to post this, as I've asked some potentially embarassing questions and don't want blackmail material. ;)

If you are going to try and work with the UBB code, by all means, grab the current beta version, 6.1.0, release 2... it's far better than the 5 series that the guys below describe.

We use (our own modified version, at least - stupid web hosting providers!), it runs under strict, and will eventually run under warnings.. ;)

The original author of the script threw the entire thing out and rewrote it for 6.0... but he made some poorly planned design decisions and it turned out to be less than spectacular.

We're finishing up over five months of reorganizations and optimizations, including a completely new I/O library and a whole bunch of other interesting stuff.

See, you can actually WORK with it now. ;)

Others have posted links to UBBDev - head over there, it's a great resource. ;)

    Where do I get the latest beta? Could you post a link. I tried to find it but couldn't from the website.

    Also just out of curiousity how many people work on this code?

    It is not too hard to work around, it is not what I grew up around being that I am a child of the Monastery (where use strict and -w are required at the gates). Now working with it is a different story. Unfortunately the person I am working with only has version 5.something. But if I can get a beta...

    I will be posting some code after the weekend asking for some suggestions.


      Not sure how much good a reply now will be, as these articles die pretty quickly... you can find the beta releases near the very bottom of the Members Area at It'll be marked with a big bold warning akin to "This beta release may be potentially unstable and is not suitable for use in production environments" yadda yadda yadda.
