I altered a UBB bulletin board pretty significantly as a favor to a friend. They don't use any standard modules and they share a lot of tricks in common with Matt's Scripts. They also have an odd file-locking system where they open a separate "lock.file" before they open any file... you can figure out what the various pieces do without much difficulty by going through the code.

Verifying users is simple enough. Passwords are stored as plain text in username.cgi files in the "Members/" directory. You just have to parse those files.

But, since their code is only accidentally open source... i.e., they sell their program, I'm not sure how they feel about people digging around in there.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
