Title: About the CMS
rivereye - December 11, 2006 02:18 AM (GMT)
Ok, I have decided that none of the current CMS/Forum systems are going to give me what I really want for a site, so I have decided I would create my own from scratch to do this. You can see the current progress at http://rancidmoose.homeip.net/~rivereye
The hosting is provided by elfprince13 on a home server, so it will have an occasional downtime, and the bandwidth will not be the greatest.
Please take a look at and let me know what you think.
There is a lot to go, but I would like support on this all the way.
Current Features Done:
Forum Display Rendering

elfprince13 - December 11, 2006 03:06 AM (GMT)

are you using css and how are you doing your controlls (js, perl, etc)? Also, I can make some neat bgs if you wanted
rivereye - December 11, 2006 10:20 PM (GMT)
I am using CSS, and it is programmed in PHP and MySQL.
xlibman - December 12, 2006 01:51 PM (GMT)
for some reasons i think that would go fine for a halloween Omnimaga bg :D

The CMS looks great Rivereye (why haven't you posted this over on RS?)
xlibman - December 12, 2006 07:17 PM (GMT)
I thought RS closed o.o (tenniskid even removed the affiliate from the affiliate bar after asking)
rivereye - December 12, 2006 08:46 PM (GMT)
Jincs, I guess I should get around to that. RS still has an IF forum we are on, but that is about it.
JincS - December 13, 2006 01:52 AM (GMT)
Yeah, and it's pretty much dead (though it wouldn't be so bad if I posted more topics...) :cry:
rivereye - December 13, 2006 02:19 AM (GMT)
well, we shall see eventually. If there is interest there, I will try to keep up with it. If not, I will let it die until this project is done (and quite possibly wait for Rivereye, The RPG to be done also).

*xlibman pokes RPG progress
rivereye - December 13, 2006 09:12 PM (GMT)
well, RPG progress is halted as my calc is acting really weird lately. I wonder why though. I hope I don't have to buy a new one.
Btw, on the RPG subject, if I get an 89, and finish the RPG, there is a high chance of a port.
xlibman - December 14, 2006 02:18 PM (GMT)
uh oh i hope it wont break x.x I hope it can be fixed. Those things are damn expensive :S
A port would be a nice addition tho :)
rivereye - December 14, 2006 08:57 PM (GMT)
well, it is now worse, but I got on on ebay for $80 working its way here. Hopefully will be here soon. No progress loss (or so I think), I was able to back up my progs just before things went really south).
xlibman - December 15, 2006 01:16 AM (GMT)
oh nice to hear at least, I'm glad you didnt lost anything
rivereye - December 15, 2006 11:01 PM (GMT)
well, I opened up the calc last night, and found corrosion on the CPU. Cleaned it up, and now my calc is working again (or so I can tell).
Nvm, acting weird again
xlibman - December 16, 2006 01:04 AM (GMT)
ouch thats not a good thing.
rivereye - December 16, 2006 03:38 PM (GMT)
yeah, it does suck, ah well though.
xlibman - December 16, 2006 03:58 PM (GMT)
sometimes, if its raining hard outside and its very humid and you have your calc in your backpack, just that could cause problem, as humidity could infiltrate inside the calc and cause corrosion with the time (even though it take a while)
rivereye - December 17, 2006 01:23 AM (GMT)
ok, just to help save of elf's bandwidth, I have moved to a new server for development. http://rivereye.tifreakware.net
I moved the DB over, so nothing should have changed.
xlibman - December 17, 2006 01:57 PM (GMT)
sound cool ^.^, this is faster as well
rivereye - December 17, 2006 04:24 PM (GMT)
yeah, more bandwidth speed, and a faster computer doing the work will do that.
rivereye - December 18, 2006 02:10 AM (GMT)
ok, worked on Subforum rendering. Should be working now just fine (Projects has a subforum on it), and working on adding topics/posts soon. Shouldn't take long to have a halfway working forum done.
xlibman - December 18, 2006 03:01 AM (GMT)
sound nice, you are allowing customising forum/sub forums right?
rivereye - December 18, 2006 08:34 PM (GMT)
rivereye - December 18, 2006 08:34 PM (GMT)
rivereye - December 19, 2006 02:33 AM (GMT)
ok, did some work on topic list rendering, and also worked on the site design a little bit (or a lot really) to fit the new logo I have. I hope you guys like it.
elfprince13 - December 19, 2006 02:42 AM (GMT)
note bad, It might be nice one some of the larger text to feather it around the edges, but overall, nice work. have you checked the validity of your html/css yet?
xlibman - December 19, 2006 01:38 PM (GMT)
I love the colors so far. Only thing is that I would change the gray areas in the side bar to black
tifreak8x - December 19, 2006 03:40 PM (GMT)
Very nice! Definitely an improvement from the white background. :D :thumpsup:
elfprince13 - December 19, 2006 04:26 PM (GMT)
hmmm....the light blue on the side of the page once logged in == massive eyestrain, the uber-green and huge font on the logo is a little sketchy, try feathering that a bit, and get yourself a better 404 page, I don't like the ads on the current one :P
rivereye - December 19, 2006 09:14 PM (GMT)
will look at the login thing. As for the gray sidebar, I did that to offset it a tad bit, I think it looks better that way. I can work on a 404 page, as to the logo, will talk to a friend on that (I didn't make it).
rivereye - December 25, 2006 06:22 AM (GMT)
ok, I have you able to reply to posts in existing topics now. Please note, only one topic exists right now (and it is in the projects area). Give it a shot (and test the security of it also).
xlibman - December 31, 2006 08:29 PM (GMT)
does it support html yet? or bbcode? Sound nice tho :)
rivereye - December 31, 2006 08:30 PM (GMT)
actually, it will not support HTML in posts, though I will be adding BBCode eventually (HTML in posts can become quite weird).
I have last post info for forums done now (though, it only does for the forum it is in, not parent forums, that will come soon. Will work on post editing/deleting soon.
