These are just my thoughts about MyBB security updates. I’m not a security expert of any sort, but I just offer my opinion based on the knowledge I have. Over the last few weeks there have been two releases to MyBB to patch potential security vulnerabilities that have been discovered by various parties. I have seen some people who have found these seemingly miniscule updates too trivial to apply to their own boards, despite the fact that I and various other members of the MyBB staff have recommended these updates. These people seem to believe that just because no harm Continue Reading
I’ve also been working on MyBB recently and I’ve added a significant feature to MyBB 1.2 a few days ago, which I’ll let you people guess what it is. The feature was not requested due to popularity (I don’t think many people had suggested it on the MyBB Community Forums), but within the staff team there were some who supported this feature. I’ll start off with this clue and add more hints later if requested: A couple of months ago, I converted most of the stuff in moderation.php into a class. This will allow plugins and other features within MyBB Continue Reading
In anticipation of the release of first beta/preview of MyBB 1.2, I’ve been committing a lot of small features here and there. Some of them are from past suggestions on the Suggestions forum on the Community Forums (which proves that yes we do add features that people suggest to the MyBB releases). However, there are others that I have added on my own. One of the sections I concentrated on during the last few days was the Attachment Manager, in both the Admin CP and User CP. I thought that it lacked some functionality, including finding broken attachments. There are Continue Reading
Here is the outcome of one of our shortest MyBB developer meetings: [22:45:13] Chris says: okay [22:45:15] Chris says: we’re ditching mybb [22:45:18] Dennis says: yeah [22:45:23] Peter says: sure [22:45:24] Dennis says: ok [22:45:25] Peter says: 😛 [22:45:26] Dennis says: agreed [22:45:30] Chris says: alright, glad thats resolved [22:45:33] Dennis says: bye [22:45:37] Peter says: bye, lol [22:45:47] Chris says: cya No we were just kidding 😉 Anyway, I’ve got part of my SVN back up, and I’ve started committing a little bit, after having no commits for who knows how long. I still have a lot of stuff Continue Reading
MyBB development is going slowly (at least for me right now since it’s a busy time for me). It’s great that Kilroy has recently joined our team. Hopefully we can push MyBB 1.0 out the door sooner, since we started beta testing PR1 in the early months of this year. Chris showed me the layout of the new Admin CP design that will be included in the next version of MyBB after 1.0, and I assure you it looks very good. I can’t wait for it to be released and I’m sure you can’t too.
