How dumb was I? I should have known that it wouldn't be difficult. Now that I have fooled around with the database thing, I know I will be sticking with YaBB.

Even tho I just spent a bunch of time modding my current board, I hope a full release will be out soon.

Its too bad that I dont have more skills to help. It would be great to help out on something as great as YaBB will be in the future. Unfortunately, my skills are only good enough to play around with my own board.

Personally, I like the way YaBB looks as it is now. I would like to see new features offered in the future that are now only available as a mod. New is always better but in my opinion, I wouldn't make big layout changes. Most are used to the current layout and changing it IMHO would not be good. We all saw what happened with a particular operating system that was replaced with something completely different instead of just adding new features.

I love the ease of use that YaBB offers. I've tried testing other software but always wound up deleting them and sticking with YaBB.

As far as the db, I don't know about them but if YaBB goes that way then I'll have a real good reason to learn more about them. I have played with them very little so I guess I would only wonder if backing up YaBB would be as easy as it is with flat files.

I opened this poll back up to see if there was any interest in it again.

For next gen yabb, i think its more skinnable, like the xenforo. For database backend, mysql is not ideal for scale up. If there is a choice of db is better. I would prefer sqlite, for no setup and have lower hosting cost. For scale up, i prefer mongodb.  Grin

MySQL is pretty much the defacto, so the developers would be daft not to target that Wink

I do this customized layout for it: http://wiring.org.co/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl
It could be easier to do by moving some html properties still existent in templates to css template file. Thanks for your time and effort on this software.

That template looks very similar to the way YaBB looked in its early days.  Don't forget you can always create templates and submit them to be published by the BoardMod community at http://www.boardmod.org.

@ Lopa

I think you mean to me.
So I did not mean it though.
To me it was much more to adapt to other forum software.
I think that the templates are to be retained in the basic form.
Other styles are also always welcome.

I hope I have brought the match paper.

I enjoy watching some of these templates develop.

It takes me back ... some of the designs remind me of the days when I used to be on my Mac, and used the program Kaleidescope to frequently completely change the look of the system.

I hope you continue working with some of these ideas! Want to continue to see how they develop.

Thanks, but this is all under development so that I can show Corey the advantages of adding VARS to the default core .pl files rather than adding themes as MODS. Wink

Only for me (interesting): Do you use the style switcher mod?


Yes, the style switcher is in the "Footer" (Rather than the header) of all the themes here. And there have been some changes to them since those snapshots were taken.  Tongue

I've been busting a gut here -> http://members.iinet.net.au/~cranky65/yabb/ To see what can be done with YaBB templates without changing or losing the Default style?

Cool

Live Demo - Use the theme changer: http://members.iinet.net.au/~cranky65/cgi-bin/forum/YaBB.pl

And now I think it's time I talked to Corey.  Wink

But first - - - I got to make an "Easy Portal" - - - - - - - - - I hope!  Cheesy

Why change the design?
The former looks very very good and is appealing.
I see no reason.

Glad to hear it ... giving people a choice is very often a good thing.  Wink
