Re: Is phpBB 3 object oriented?

In reality, procedural code is faster than oo code, however, each has its advantages/disadvantages and applications. PHP5's oo code is pretty sweet. It's not intensly oo like c++ for example, but it is a good leap ahead.

Re: Is phpBB 3 object oriented?

I didn't mean to give the impression that I am an excellent coder, because I am not, the real thing is that I have been developing forum softwares for the past few years. I generally find the best way to learn (for me) is to look t a small contained batch of code, such as what you might find on a tu...

Re: Is phpBB 3 object oriented?

Don't worry, I have a pretty good grasp on PHP and OOP. The reason why I don't look into phpBB's code more indepthly is because I don't want to develop 'bad' coding standards. I'm not saying phpBB's code is bad, but if I start to look a lot at phpBB's code, I will start to do things in a similar way...

Is phpBB 3 object oriented?

is phpBB3 object oriented or does it just use classes because it can? I've noticed in phpBB3 and 2 that it really only has a few things that seem to be managed by classes such as the dba, but I have never seen a real full-fleged 'embracement' per se of object orientation. There are no apparent patte...

MySQLi?

I just got WAMP the other day, and it allows me to develop things and to switch between PHP4 and PHP5. However, the only MySQL version it comes with is MySQLi. I have tried installing phpBB3, and older version of IPB and vB RC2 with no success. All of the forum systems give me an error similar to: Y...

Re: I'm worried

I created a generally full-featured forum software for the Zend PHP5 competition and came 22nd, yay!). I was working alone, and it took me 3 to four months. In all, it was about 12,000 lines of code including templates. If you look at the number of lines in the CVS information for phpBB3, it's up at...

Re: Smarty as your template engine..

By the way, by accident when I was posting, I saved it as a draft. When I tried to load the draft, the message didn't show up. I had to press back to recover my original message, and now for some reason the topic shows itself as having an attachment... A bug?
