The best well tested version is v. HELP??

Hi !

I was wondering, which version is the best to implement. On www.phorum.org i downloadet v.3.2.11 but there are some very common features I would like, that isent in there...Im sure someone else already did them. Help would be much appreaciatied (sp?)

I would like links to be active when people write only www.something.net

I would like emails to automatically turned into mail to links some@something.net

I would like to force people to preview (like Agners version) I make alot of bad keyhits and so does a lot of other people.

I would like to have a couter for each topic to show how many people that have read it.

I would like the attachment button like this page utilizes.

I want, I want, I want ;-)

Well actually Im a nubi and Im just staringt up a forum, so i would like to get it right from the start.

If You have made a version that can do theese things I would be gratefull. Please
mail it to me. Otherwise Im looking at a look of single hacks implemeting.

PS: SORRY ABOUT MAKING A NEW TOPIC IN THE WRONG SECTION...

Maybe you should try to use 3.3-dev that you can find here: [dev.phorum.org]
it have some nice new features, as well as some bug fixes. also all new hacks will be coded for that version

no such hack yet, you can try to ask Agners, maybe it's not that hard to make it for "base" version.

Thanks a lot for Your kind reply. I will check out the dev-version Ot sound like the right solution. Is there some particular reason, that its not the standart download version made availeble at www.phorum.org ?

By making liks active I mean that:

I would like users to be able to just type in a basic url like www.something.com - and have that result in a fully operational link, that can be taken by other useres/readers (I will probably opend them in a new browser window - by standart javascript)

Im sure it only a loop examining string sort of like this ((bogus code ofcause)) ;-):

While (x=<string.length; www.xx.xx OR [http://])
{
replace :
<A href='[www.something.com&]
X++
}
break;

Some warning feature like"thats not a vaild link could also be nice, but It will be a while before I can make a (any) contribution.

there is active links in phorum:
[hackers.phorum.org]
just add <> around the url.

But it would seem more user friendly to make them change by themself. Is there some reason not to?

www.something.com

<www.something.com>

maybe yes, maybe no. but i like the way that they are right now. i know there was some hacks to make it chage by themself, but it's long gone with old support forums at [www.phorum.org]

Hmm. I disagree. Most users just type eg

" I saw this great site check it out: www.something.com"

Only programmers and other advanced users know the other way of doing it. I didnt, and Im on the net everyday. :-)

The change is imperativ for enhaced functionality.

phorum have lack of user faq, i might start to work on it to make your life easer :)

Well - a partial faq could be lifted from Agners private edition :-) , but still I must mantain the view that links should always automatically (sp?) change.

User always (well often) write links like www.something.com or mayby [www.something.com], why press them into making a new habit of using sharp brackets around links?

The phorum must bend like a straw in the wind to the imperativ diktation of user habits...

Anayway thats my opinion. :-)
