Fixing the YaBB Codex & Boardmod.

In my opinion, two parts of the Empire of YaBB are 'most broken' of all. áthe YaBB Codex and Boardmod. á

At the moment, Boardmod is down, actually broken (it uses in-line custom PHP & a MySQL database that we do not have a backup of), and really has not been attended well for some time. áWe do have all the data. mods etc. It isn't really 'ours', it's Michael Prager's intellectual property.

The YaBB Codex is a mess, but not completely broken. It uses the same codebase as YaBB Next on YaBBForum.com and shares its Member data. It DOES use custom templates, that have hidden much of the underlying data and broken most tools. áEverything on yabbforum.com is rather Byzantine and tangled together. áThe Codex has a lot of good information like complete descriptions of how Templates, YaBB Tags and BoardMod all work, Permissions settings, Language skinning, and much more. It also contains a lot of out of date stuff and things that are flatly wrong.

I have a plan. I'm looking for both ideas on what standard YaBB tools and methods to use and volunteers to whack away at the pile.
  • De-tangle things. áMake a clean, new, separate YaBB 2.6 install (maybe on our Admin Test server) to 'receive' the Codex data (i.e Message and Attachments primarily).

    Shoehorn the Data manually (like we did with the Beta Forum) This should expose all the YaBB Tools and underlying data.

    Enable a team of Moderators to 'mark things' and begin a sorting out.

    Clean things up and hide completely outdated information.
    When reasonably tidy, replace the Codex on YabbForum.com

    Eventually - we will port the 'good parts' into a CMS container.


I'd like your thoughts

On my laptop at home I have a few mods that I never installed. I'll check tonight to see what they are.

On my forum I have Carstens' Like Mod. It doesn't rate them 1-10 just adds a check mark.

It appears he does have a 'rate mod' that worked with 2.4 - which gives me yet another thought

I checked my laptop and I didn't find anything, sorry.

There used to be a mod called "Yet another Reputation System", I could be wrong but I think Outumuro authored it.

Heh - Luis - now there would be some irony. I never used that mod, but I do remember it. I will ask him about it.

thanks Ron

Not Yet, I beleive it will be worked on after the release of 2.6 which shouldn't be to far off from now.
