At least speaking for myself I develop on linux, and I know natio does on both linux and winblows--I mean!! windows... redface oops... so in short, you can rest assure it works on linux, just need to be sure your server complies with the reqs (like having php installed lol! tongue )

a drop down list of our friends with checkboxes would be great, some of them may have long names thus would be difficult to type in their names. Maybe the list can be in groups like top list, friends , families and ability to add more groups. this way we wouldnt have to browse all their names if we have 100 or more friends. We can also send mass message to these particular groups if for example we want to invite for birthday party for our family groups only.

& I agree, Like i said i liked fox's forums because they weren't a copy of other forums but they lacked severely in features.
Yeah a long time ago was free. InvisionFree is still free though. They also offer hosting and with it you get a free board for as long as you have hosting with them. Other than that you can get a board for:

IPB $150

VB $180

One thing that amazes me is why anyone would buy VB after visiting their sales landing page? Totally lacking presentation for what's supposed to be a large company. Even free scripts have better presentation.

I just hope that if they do invest in the Fox forums this round that it has it's own identity and not modeled after vb and that if they do want to add some powerful tools that they take a look at other forums and evaluate some of the opportunities. I just feel that because they have been using vb for so long that they may not consider that.

Regardless of the fact of reading it looks somewhat like face book and even though yes all the features are not up yet in this pre-demo still not what I expected...but everyone is entitled to there opinion even people who read or feel that they are the smartest individual posting in a topic like after reading this most people do...maybe we can focus more on V2 than internet jabbing

Good to know. If you try to add this in the .htaccess file:
Header set Cache-Control "public"

Do you get an internal server error with just that?

Yes, 500 Internal server error.

Seems that phpfox2 needs a Apache with a module headers enabled. If this module is not enabled the phpfox2 will not work with .htaccess, short urls and etc.

Enabling module headers may be done in this way (Debian with Apache 2):

server:/# a2enmod headers
Enabling module headers.
Run '/etc/init.d/apache2 restart' to activate new configuration!
server:/# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Restarting web server: apache2.

Worked perfectly!!! Thank you sharo!

it can be a profile type, like the band profile but some privacy settings enabled by default, like if they choose Band profile they get privacy settings to allow everyone to post in their profiles and join their group and etc... but if its an underage profile then only friends can PM them and things like that, they can change that later on but at least thats the default.

Great nice crisp clean and simple code. and ya if the new css is layed out well all is good i have just not wanted to back through and redefine all the class' in 1.6

but going as far as reducing single char's that arnt needed omg just the thought of what else you have done...... i think i need some alone time lol Tongue

lol ya but it is so nice to code and have reference pages on the second one or even my music or a movie.

i have even had 2 separate browsers open at the same time one on each monitor one logged in as admin and the other as user or not logged in so i can see the changes i make with out logging out and in 500 times after i missed a period or something is to small or big.

RC means the script is feature-locked and only bugfixes are written so then I can be sure that none of my work will be lost due to API changes or template engine changes.

Thats wise Smile and every modder should be using the alpha version just to get very acquainted with how the script works, learn it very well so you can work easier later on, read the guidelines and Im sure you'll pick it up Smile its actually much much easier than 1.6

Cant this be done via php and load them in real time? Wouldn't that make it so that there is no load to talk about? I'm curious to know why does everything have to goto site cache when no task cleanups are adjustable and wasting server space(based on 1.6 anyway)?

Can you explain to us how the cache system has been improved because in the current system it is constantly delivering old outdated info and I don't believe it's really working properly as it should. I have never with any software had to use a clear cache button so much just to see changes or updated content.

This is part of phpfox meta:
<meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache" />
<meta http-equiv="expires" content="-1" />
<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache" /> Does it defeat the purpose of webcache? I don't understand how it really works if phpfox has no time management built in for users as well the server time it sits on could be up to 12 plus hours fwd/back than the users time so stale content can be that old and in some cases if I'm thinking correctly if your target members for example are in Brazil only and server is in brazil then the content is always fresh but will cause a load on server thus defeating point of webcache because they expire correct per the tags above?

I'm asking that you demostrate how this area has been improved. Right now I think that i and everyone else can validate that it currently performs far from ok.

But just incase this is about sql queries, wouldn't the info already be present and not require extra queries? Has or is the tables in the database been redone to better manage this so we can create a big mod that only uses one query instead of 20? More intell pleasee shade
