forum in general


I'm just curious who hosted this forum, or who may have designed it because it looks really similar to pcmech's in layout

well, although this seems like a question that should go under Website Questions and Suggestions I'll try to answer this for you.

If you look at the very bottom of the html page on every page on this site, you will see the following:
Based on: vBulletin ( Jelsoft Enterprises)
Copyright 2000 - 2002, LinuxQuestions.org.


That means that LinuxQuestions, like so many other bbs out there are using vBulletin. Check vBulletin in google.com

I have seen praps a dozen or so bulletin board / forum systems, which all look identical in layout and operation. Then only differences appear to be a bit off skinning and css. Some are open source, some are commercial. Some look great, some look terrible... but they are all essentially the same concept.

I'm trying to develop a system which redefines the way a forum should work. I'm basing mine on an infinitely expandable tree of branches and nodes, easily navigable and easy for users to build upon.

TBH, there is a *lot* of work to be done on it, but if you're curious, take a look at http://212.18.226.160/ I would be interested to hear peoples' comments. It's just my evening hobby anyway

It'll never meet the quality of this forum, though (Linuxquestions is just a brilliant site) !!!

chr15t0,

query select us_id from users where us_login="admin" failed

That was the result?

yeah - I have been butchering it a bit this evening - I'll have to fix it up tomorrow if I get a chance..

There's a whole stack to do on it anyway, which is why there's no reverse DNS yet, but I have a cvs repository, so I can sneak in some work during the week when I'm doing $dayjob

That particular error was due to a bit of conversion I did earlier from using php's depracated mysql_db_query() to using mysql_select_db() and mysql_query().

thanks SML
