This new minibb forum is running on a home server. Seems to run perfectly and very fast too. Great thing about minibb is how small it is and how little system resources it uses which makes it ideal for my setup.
I have altered the styling obviously and I am using the old version of minibb.
I have just written some side panel boxes:
1 - shows website titles of company offers with auto-updating offer numbers. The titles link to the search so that all offers can be quickly found.
2 - the top 5 viewed posts are displayed with the most viewed at the top. The titles are linked to the post. I have used a cross-browser auto-height iframe for this so that I could control the charset as using ajax includes causes the £ signs to fail.
This is a new forum so I will probably be adding more side panels boxes or other coding at some time or other.
The forum has a few addons such as captcha, preview and smilies. More will be coded in soon such as the spell checker.
