Square Insider Runs On Mako!
kula shakerz    2008-01-06, 22:53 pm.

Square Insider is finally up and running on our brand new content management system (Mako). Although the site might look pretty much the same this move is a huge upgrade that has been in the works for a few months.

Everything now runs of the same module based backend written in Object Oriented PHP thus making it far easier to add new features or modify existing ones.

Mako 1.0.0 introduces a couple of new features on the frontend (like the ability to edit comments, post comments without javascript enabled etc...), some interface tweaks and it also brings back our old guide section.

More features will be introduced with the first version upgrade (1.1.0) in the near future.

If you find any broken links or other bugs please report them in this topic so I can fix them.

I'm aware that the RSS feed is not updating, this issue will be resolved tomorrow.

Update: The RSS feed is now updating and I have also fixed a number of minor bugs.

you're never going to change this font, are you? xD edit - digging the silk icon set, btw.

I'm just using the same font style as the default invision board skin :p 1000 free icons, almost too good to be true xD

I dont really know what the difference is, but... yey!

Added a little feature that I forgot to implement before upgrading ... all date/times are now set to the timezone of the user (registered members only).

You can set your timezone in "My Controls" just in case you didn't know.

Did you take a course in PHP and stuff or did you just learn this stuff off the web?

kula shakerz    2008-01-11, 15:26 pm

I learned everything by reading the PHP manual (www.php.net) and looking at source code.
