Hi,
Very interesting video ! It's funny because I have been so fed up with FUDforum's interface and clunkiness and intentions that will never end up in a true revamp of the software, that I had decided to try to hire someone to convert my forum to SMF.
I don't have any knowledge in coding but perhaps I can help in user feedback. If I haven't found anyone to convert before.
Good luck on a brave attempt to give new life to a dying script

Well, I'm a user on a number of other forums which have different scripts, like Xenforo, Woltlab BB, or even SMF.
What I like on FUDforum is the horizontal view on the messages template, but I think many things are clunky.
For instance when you click on a forum where there are unread messages, if you click once, the bulb won't stay lit even if there are other unread messages.
Then the theming is horrible. You CAN'T have a modern interface.
Likes are a joke, you can like a topic, but not a message.
The karma system is never used by my members because it's not seen by them.
The new messages are not clearly available, just "messages of the day" link.
The fonts are horrible, too.
The theme is not responsive, people with smartphones and tablets complain they can't access the forum comfortably.
Well I could go on like this forever

In the long run, do you see FUDforum still being developed, like other free scripts are, like SMF or phpBB ?

+1
It seems that development ends up in boring people who start with lots of motivation and quickly exhaust themselves.
I wish I could do something to help this script becoming more modern, but I now I'm fed up with it.
I know of many people who got fed up with my own forum because of the lack of mobile devices support. They simply ceased to visit and that's a shame.
That's why I try to find someone to convert it to SMF

Could you give us an estimate of how many percent of work you've done so far, in your opinion ?

So a fully working script is to be expected in 2 years time, since you began development 2 years ago ? Wink Just kidding

Hi,
Running 3.0.6 RC2, will it be necessary to upgrade to 3.0.6 to install the CI version of FUDforum ?

Thanks Gary, all you describe is absolutely normal.

-Security credentials do not carry over when switching from main to the ACP panel. Requires you to login everytime.


I know, this is because the current alpha uses two distinct cookies, so I just link to the ACP login page every time.

-Rebuilding of the default theme doesn't seem to work though it says it was rebuilt successfully. I tried changing the header image but no changes took place. (Edit) I see that we're not using the theme/default/images directory, I found an "images" directory in the root of my web. files.


You don't need to rebuild themes. All you need to change are the views (application/views/fud) and the CSS (theme/default/theme.css) and images (images/).

-Cannot register new users. Missing Captcha generator.


As I stated earlier at this time the PHP-GD extension is required for the captcha to work. I will try to remove dependencies later on.
If you're on Ubuntu you can install PHP-GD via: apt-get install php5-gd as root (or using sudo).
