the forum system is really nice.
There are two things I would like to see added though (they may be possible at the moment... I don't know?)
1) I would like new replies placed at the end of the thread rather than the start. This is the way all other forusm I have seen work and I find it confusing being the way it is. I would be more than happy if there was a switch so you can choose which way it works (in the setup file/ the admin control panel)
2) The ability to prune old messages to prevent the forum from getting too big. Actually to follow on from this the ability to lock threads that are over a certain age would be good (but not essential).
MiniBB is really nice (i'll probably use the MiniBBx version) and I hope to add it to my site soon.
I must say I echo all the comments about your untidy coding style. It's not very nice to see totally uncommented code with illogical variable names.
If I was to make some adjustments/ improvements could I email them to you for inclusion in the main file? I prefer to use things without modification so that if I upgrade in the future I don't have to go and edit everything again.
Ooh - just about to post the message, and notive a lack of preview button. that would be very handy as well.
1) Only this thread is sorted in reversed order, since we want fresh opinions stay on top. It's a feature.
2) Right now, we are working on the main core; however, archivation plugin is planned in the near future; it will include your request.
As about coding style - it's our product and our coding style, it's open source, so these claims are not taken into consideration. Every user could edit our source the way he likes, including you; as about modifications, previews, etc. - we have our own concepts, and will follow them. Every user needs something different, and you too, so it's better to keep on yourself, not obtrude your opinion on everyone, like we do.
