( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have seen v6. Yes, it is tons better code. But it's stuck with a heavy legacy of zero design effort file formats which limit the power of the software in many areas and Infopop are unlikely to be able to get rid of any time soon. Something that really drove me off is their mess between wordlets and templates; their "templates" are a flat out lie since they're nothing other than a bunch of hardwired subroutine calls to generate the HTML and the wordlet system is a very inflexible, restricted way of modifying the looks of pages that depends on how much control Infopop or a hack's author deemed worth the effort to give you. Lastly, there is massive amounts of Javascript being thrown around, mostly as a quickhack to offload the "login" functionality to the browser rather than implementing it serverside.

For me personally there is also the fact that our board is full of custom hacks I wrote myself. I started porting them to UBB6, but the above factors eventually put me off before I could waste too much effort on it. Right now I'm hoping for a UBB importer to Ikonboard v3..

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.
