[RC] Crunch

Postby Obsidian » 23 Jul 2009, 01:19

Crunch


Description - A MOD used for creating an ACP definable "post", known as a "Crunch" to be used across the phpBB backend.
It is made for ease of use for PHP developers to integrate into their own site, with only a few function calls to be added into a page in order to activate and make use of the MOD.
For example:

Code: Select all

include("{$phpbb_root_path}includes/crunch.$phpEx");
crunch::init();
crunch::load("crunch_tag_word_here");   &nbsp

It's as simple as that.

Installation difficulty - Recommended for developers only!

Version - 1.0.0 RC2

phpBB Version - phpBB 3.0.5

Development stage - Release Candidate Cycle

Format - MODX

Download -

It's actually been around a long time, but it was in private beta. Only real bugs in Beta 2 were it not handling a nil-result for Crunches in crunch::get() [I think], and the plugins system not working. As such, plugin system was removed, and that other bug has been fixed.

Unless I get bug reports for this, I'm probably shifting it to RC soon.

Has anyone tested it and thrown it through torture tests?

Last call for bug reports or suggestions before I move this to the RC stage.

Question, how does Crunch parse HTML? Can I include scripts from other sites into Crunch and have it show up properly? Does it trust all HTML since the person editing is an admin of the site or does it restrict certain html & JavaScript codes?

Crunch works just like phpBB's posting system. HTML is not parsed, but all bbcodes are, including custom bbcodes.

You should put a note in there that php 5 is required, or even do a check for it. I forgot to set my site to php 5 (defaults to 4) and it failed when I accessed it in the ACP.

Oh, yeah, I forgot. When I did Beta 3, I updated it to use PHP5 OOP instead of functions -- completely forgot about that.

Another recommendation.. in the Manage Crunches section, you should alternate the row colors so it will be easier to follow one line all the way across to the edit link.
