View Full Version : QUICKboard DEMO...

12-03-2002, 02:28 AM
Hiya, I've create the basics for my QUICKboard asp app.
It is a mini message board. I will post the abilities soon but at the moment I just want some feed back.
You will have to register to post, after you have registered it will say that you will recieve an email with a link to activate your account but that is not enabled at the moment so don't worry, I haven't set condtitions in the code to stop you from posting with out bein activated.

in short you don't need to actually activate your account, just login!

Also I don't want feedback on features that should be there. The features that it has at the moment is what is having.

PLUS this is the LITE version.

This app will be free once all the bugs are out. So please tell me what you think and any bugs you come across.

I had changed most of my database access strings to a variable defined in a include file but I had missed register.asp and login.asp so those were looking in the wrong place for the database. Fixed now.

Oh that is sweeet...

First I forgot to replace the connection with a variable.

Then the include problem which was a matter of an unwanted "h" and then a problem with it trying to add a user before the form was submited. lol :D

All fixed.! I guarantee I just tried it then!

no matter what, it won't register me. it simply reloads the page. no alerts or messages claiming that something was filled out wrong, or that member name already exists, or anything. juts won't register.

change the tab-order for the formfields in the login and register forms, most people hit tab to enter a password after typing the username. In your form, you tab to the checkbox. Thats annoying. Besides that, it looks very gooood

Yeah tab index in on the list for improvements today along with breadcrumbs.

no matter what, it won't register me. it simply reloads the page. no alerts or messages claiming that something was filled out wrong, or that member name already exists, or anything. juts won't register.

I have no idea why it won't register you.
It has alerts for duplicate usernames and unmatching passwords.

I think I made some changes to the register code last night as I was cleaning out the excess code so maybe that version will let you register when I upload it.

Did you say we can post without activating th account? I don't see any post button when I try to reply/make new thread. Using IE5

<edit>Nevermind, seems to have worked second time around</edit>

12-04-2002, 02:54 AM
One thing, I'd make the "Test forum " a link to the forum I've posted in, it's a bit annoying having to go to the front page everytime, then go to the category I posted in

It's also not showing the amount of replies to a thread.

12-04-2002, 03:29 AM
I've just done the link thing coz that was annoying me soooo much.

As for the replies I'm doing that right now, shouldn't take mroe than a minute so in about 2 to 3 mins it should be up with the link and how many replies modifications..

Thanks for testing by the way, makes it easier to find out what works and where some doesn't.

Also what do you think about the rich text functions peeps? Can you tell where to put the text? lol :D You never know who may find it hard..

i was only able to register in IE. Using Moz, the page just reloads. don't know why that is ( i didn't check out the code at all ). thought i might mention it, though.

Looks promising! BTW, what database backend are you using?

12-04-2002, 04:33 AM
:( Access with jet 4.0 it seems to be coping with the 2 users an hour traffic which I get :)

I'm going to have an SQL server version of it. But at the moment there is no SQL server for me to use so I'm in no rush.

I have still a fair bit to do yet though, I will have to spend a while later today doing validation scripting.

Ps: I'm going to set up a forum for modifications news and soon downloading of the script, although you will most likely have to wait for another week before it will be worth getting.

PPS: I've a suggestion forum as well! That is if you don't want to make the suggestion here... It's just to help test out multiple forums.. Thanks peoples! :)

I've bookmarked it, and will help you out as much as I can. Can't help with the asp side though - only made one user login form in asp and that's it :p and never touched access

12-04-2002, 04:56 AM
Thanks, :)

I seem to be having some trouble with the reply posting so you might want to avoid any more tests for the moment.

I'm not quite sure what is the problem but I've other things to do before the replly.asp file is due to be worked on so it may be an hour or so.

Thanks :)
