Hello everyone

I have a few fixes that I need to make to my fudforum installation (2.Cool. These changes are pretty simple I would think but I'm not a PHP guru by any means.

I am willing to pay for the hours it takes to make these changes. If there is anyone out there who wants to make a few $$$ then please contact me. The changes are welcome to be fed back to the maintainers so everyone can benefit.

Preference will be given to those who are long time members of this forum. Contact me if you are interested.

Cheers,

James.

Let me know what changes you want. I might be persuaded to implement some of them if you contribute to this project in some form (i.e. bounties, translation, design, etc.). Say for example, you put a bounty of $200 on "the next language below 50% that is completely translated" or something such.

Sure, I can do that. Here are the things I need fixed/upgraded:

1) Attachments included _before_ personal signature and nntp forum signature so that news clients connecting to nntp server directly don't strip attachments off as part of the signature.

2) charset of messages sent to nntp isn't correct. I can only speak for the german forums but the umlaut (as well as many others) don't appear correctly in news clients connecting to nntp server because the charset isn't correct. You can make the news client force the charset and it works but that is a kludge and shouldn't need to be done.

3) Wordwrap messages being sent nntp servers need to be wordwrapped. I've added the code for new messages but replies need to be wordwrapped before adding ">" characters in quoted message.

That's it. If I could fix those that would be great. If that is a bounty that would be useful to the project then I'll make it. How do I make that "official"?

James.

I'm sure we can do it for the NNTP forum signature. However, to do it for the personal signature might require too much code refactoring (will have to see when I start coding).

Should be doable (if it's not already fixed).

Can you please post what you have so far?

Please try to do both. I suppose I could disable personal signatures but that would not be good.

Good. My users will really like this.

See

http://fudforum.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=158167&#msg_158167

And while you're in there don't forget

http://fudforum.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=159627&#msg_159627

Not to be a pain, but once you get into it could you give me an ETA until when it will be live? I am currently running 2.8 so I could either apply a patch or upgrade to new version with these changes.

Cheers,

James.

Hi Frank,

One more thing, the charset doesn't seem to be set properly in the RDF feed of 2.8. I know you did a lot of work with RSS in 3.0. Perhaps you could ensure that the charset is set properly there as well in the RSS header.

I'm using Mac OS X Leopard Mail as the basis. Maybe the header is correct and Mail isn't displaying properly. I suppose that is a possibility too.

James.

I'm done with 1 and 3, but are unable to reproduce 2. So, I assume it's already fixed.

We can deal with the scope creep later (I'm going on leave and need to wrap this up). Personally, I think you've got a bargain for $200 as I won't do this in daytime for several times this amount.

How do we proceed? Can you announce your bounty in the "Translations" forum? Say, "$100 for the next 2 (or 3 if you feel generous) languages below 50% that is translated to above 95%."

Wow, that was fast Frank. Thank you very much.

I assume it would be easiest if you roll this into the 3.0 (and not bothering patching back to 2.Cool. How do I upgrade to the latest 3.0RC?

I'll be happy to test.

And yes, I'll announce the bounty with you being the moderator at who determines that the line was crossed and who crossed it first.

Cheers,

James.

Great, thank you very much James! The patch is available at http://cvs.prohost.org/c/index.cgi/FUDforum/chngview?cn=12019

The easiest would be to checkout the latest code from CVS and build an install or upgrade script. Instructions are available at http://cvs.prohost.org/index.php/Installation. If it's too much of a challenge, I can also build one for you.

PS: Please test thoroughly before applying it to your production site.

Best regards.

Frank

Hi Frank,

Do you have an ETA on when 3.0 will move from RC to Stable?

Will the patch work against 2.8?

James.

If everything goes according to plan, around this time next month.

Probably not.
