  • Getting a lot of warnings with debug on. How can I resolve them?

    These warnings are new, from when I upgraded to 2.2.
    They seem like pretty low hanging fruits, easy to solve. I just don't know where to begin :).
    Any ideas?

    There's warnings all over the place. Vanilla core, Smarty cache, and some Plugins.

  • Re: Which editor is used on this forum?

    I believe it's not called "editor", but rather "Advanced Editor"

    Copied from my 2.2 plugins section:
    "Advanced Editor
    Enables advanced editing of posts in several formats, including WYSIWYG, simple HTML, Markdown, and BBCode.
    DisableSettings Version 1.7.2|Requires: Vanilla Version >=2.2|By Dane MacMillan"

  • Plugins repository - suggestions for improvements

    I have suggestions towards the plugins repository, it needs to get some improvements.
    This post deals with sorting of the plugin repository, with suggestions on how to improve. It also deals with plugins that have gone Github-only, but still listed here.

    Take a look at this plugin as an example: http://vanillaforums.org/addon/shwaipbot-plugin
    The website says "UPDATED 6 JUNE", and then when the user clicks the plugin, the latest version was 1.0.1 DECEMBER 2013 .

    As a user it is currently not obvious and intuitive to figure out:

    • What are the newest plugins in the repository, most recently added to the plugin repository
    • What are the latest updated plugins

    It should be possible to see

    • NEWEST PLUGINS
    • RECENTLY UPDATED PLUGINS [VERSION]
    • RECENTLY UPDATED PLUGINS [INFORMATION TEXT]

    The reason for the distinction between Recently Updated plugins VERSION and TEXT is that it seems the website is showing "Updated 6 JUNE" but that's only the information text on the plugin, and it has nothing to do with the version.

    On plugins with
    Also there should be GITHUB links to the plugin repo, and a github to its latest version tag which points to the plugins' zipfile archive.
    It is now very common for some plugin authors to say "please use github for all correspondence, I will not follow this website any longer". This is fair enough and and I think the website needs to improve to take this new development into account.
    It could even have a "latest/last commit" infobox, pulled from github, so that the viewer will know if the development of the plugin has stalled or not.

  • Re: Where are the ready made themes?

    Right ... I see. I guess I could employ a designer and release the theme code under GPLv2 after I have it done. That could be one approach to get more themes, if more people than me do that.

  • Re: Vanilla Porter and SMF 1.1.x

    Welcome to Vanilla :) I too used SMF, but it had its heyday back in 2006. I am really happy with Vanillaforums and I am sure you will be too.

    I managed to get my SMF forum perfectly transferred using the porter plugin. If you'd like to read about it, see my post here: http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/21077/migrating-from-smf2-to-vanilla-converting-the-precious-posts#latest |- and here-->> http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/21530/thanks-vanillaforums#latest

    I recommend doing this from your computer instead of doing it on your webhost. Install a local copy of XAMPP and download your forum's files and databases to it.
