Re: I Need a good working Guest Book, and a good working Forum

Hi mazarin
The reason for that I ask is because I had to take out this version for guestbook
the whole time was full with spam.

$modversion['name'] = _MI_XFGB_NAME;
$modversion['version'] = '2.40a';
$modversion['description'] = _MI_XFGB_DESC;
$modversion['credits'] = "phppp : randomscript, randomimage";
$modversion['author'] = "the Cat";
$modversion['help'] = "";
$modversion['license'] = "GPL see LICENSE";
$modversion['official'] = 0;
$modversion['image'] = "images/xfguestbook_slogo.png";
$modversion['dirname'] = "xfguestbook";

Newbb 4.3 is not in test. It is stable even from 2 months ago. Alfred release it as a stable version in his website.

I start to debug newbb and i find many bugs. Almost 95% of bugs are left from 2004 (newbb 2) and 2005 (cbb 3).
And those bugs are not notice or warning or fatal error bugs but functional bugs. it means newbb dont do the job correctly.

The below functionality in newbb were almost or completely useless because bugs
1- delete/restore and pending/approve features in post/topic (completely useless)
2- search
3- synchronizing (completely useless)
4- since features

I solved the above bugs and many many other bugs in irmtfan branch.

The "read/unread" functionality is still have bugs and at this time it is completely useless in newbb 2, cbb 3 and newbb 4.3 earlier revisions. i work on it to solve bugs.
In irmtfan branch the "read/unread" functionality is almost working but i still find bugs every day.

see this new bug i found today:
https://xoops.org/modules/newbb/viewforum.php?forum=7&status=unread
and
https://xoops.org/modules/newbb/list.topic.php?status=unread

it list all topics as unread for me when i am logged in but i read all of them.
( i even send a post in this topic but it list this topic as unread for me very funny)
So for example the above bug is exist in all newbb versions in the last 10 years.
So it is really surprising at least for me that No Body report these bugs in xoops.org forum or other places in the last 10 years
( in 365*10 = 3650 days!!!!).
Unfortunately people mainly think if a module is working without errors/warning/notices it is a stable and fully functional module. But a module must do the task correctly. for example: if the forum module has a "unread" feature it should list the unread topics. if it list some topics in random or new replied topics it is totally buggy. And functional bugs are much more important than simple error/warning/notice/typo bugs

Final word:
what do you mean when you said you want a newbb stable version?
1- If you want to have a forum that users send posts and topics on it so all newbb versions are stable. the 4.3 is recommended.

BUT

2- If you want to have a newbb that all functionality work correctly no newbb version is completely stable until now.
irmtfan branch latest revision is the most stable version at this time: (2012/10/13)
