Finally managed to get a bit more web development (as opposed to getting pre-developed stuff online), as I’m continuing work on Hybrid Accounts. And my recent meddling with integrating phpBB into web designs, (so the forum looks an integral part of the site not just a different site) credit to the Extreme Styles Mod, has brought me to start thinking about Hybrid’s own forum solution.
Voist (as it’s codenamed, I know it sounds like a VoIP app) will be available probably under the GPL as well as a non-Free licence and its main features will be:
- Easy and simple forum solution written in PHP and using MySQL as DB
- Nice and friendly URLs (so site.com/topic/4 rather thanÃ‚Â site.com/viewtopic.php?t=4) which will rely on Apache’s mod_rewrite
- Clean design with a fairly easy skinning ability
- [This bit will be in a non-GPL version] Connection with Hybrid Accounts
As I’ve mentioned, Voist will hopefully integrate with Hybrid Accounts in the proprietary version (that will likely be the only difference between it and the GPL version, however). That means I can’t start Voist yet, because Hybrid Accounts isn’t finished.
So that’s what I’ve been working on for a bit of today, Hybrid Accounts. There’s also something very special coming up, but they’ll be more about that later.
