Nexia’s BBCode Lyrics

one of a kind, i presume, as nobody else ever coded such a simple feature that could be used on about any forum…

a simple bbcode that let you list songs lyrics in a good way for the eye! just look:

JoshGroban–Awake

A beautiful and blinding morning

The world outside begins to breathe

See clouds arriving without warning

I need you here to shelter me


And I know that only time will tell us how

To carry on without each other


So keep me awake to memorize you

Give me more time to feel this way

We can’t stay like this forever

But I can have you next to me today


If I could make these moments endless

If I could stop the winds of change

If we just keep our eyes wide open

Then everything would stay the same

the trick is easy… once installed this bbcode work in two ways:

[ LYRICS][/LYRICS ] will list the song lines
[ LYRICS=title of the song, artist, etc][/LYRICS ] will list the song lines with the title containing what’s in the option.
[/CODE]

… i plan on adding a button to activate that BBCode.. just need to understand how to do it… rofl

vBulletin Versions Supported

On this site, the vBulletin generations are mostly all supported for a reason: they all look the same. From 3.5 to 4.2 yet, we’re supporting them when coding products and upgrading them.

By the way, we’re not supporting all sub-versions. We’re supporting actually only the latest of each generation, to avoid internal bugs that occur between versions. as an example, the 3.6.9 version has bugs that the 3.6.10 fixed

So, for this reason, there is a list of prerequisite versions we support. It is always suggested that you upgrade your vBulletin each time a fix is released so you’re not facing any substential bug, but also because you will be fully supported by the company if you have something wrong going on your site.

Right now, a multitude of « Patch Levels » are released in your Members Area, which let you choose the latest for your version… we’re not listing them here because they change periodically. But the versions themselves are:

3.5.8
3.6.12
3.7.7
3.8.7

4.0.8
4.1.12
4.2.0

News: Small change ins the Library, and Subscription Running!

As you can see, the Scripts Library changed a little bit… now, everything is under the same directory… around 100 products are available, so that’s not that complicated to browse.

As an addition, you have a simple subscription for Membership that gives you access to everything in here in the same time. No complicated renewals, no heavy registrations… simple as that!

so, where are the white goblins at ?@!

lot of things to update in our thoughts…

but as i’m not a person of codes, i’ll talk a little about what i updated in my toughts in the last 2 years:

1- no more « forum »… everything is supposed to be used to be filled with data, like text, feed, discussion, article, photos, video, etc…

2- with minimal plug-and-play admincp, we can create everything:

a: basic infos, hierarchy*(child, independant, custom etc)
b: type of section *(articles, discussions, reviews, poll, etc)
c: level of permissions *(admin, manager, moderator, author, etc)
d: sets of fields *(because 2 articles sections can have different fields, like rating, ranking, folios, references etc)
e: customization

so basically, when we create a sections/sub-section/sub-sub etc… we set the basic infos, and then the type, the level and the sets… if we do not use the default features, we set details in the customization fields…

that way, any moron can handle the creation of most of what can be a community… even the cms!



right now, if you want to customize vB cms, you need a tutorial… missing one actually, so you need someone paid to handle it!

same for IPB, phpBB and some others… the more gadgets, the less flexibility due to the multiplication of settings…

if we simply have to choose if this section is an article repository with only the admins can posts and need guest level to comment, that’s pretty simple and easy to understand… right now in vB and IPB, you need to set at least 50 elements in the CP!

small delay for the opening of the site…

i’ve been very occupied in the last days, trying to upgrade some of my scripts, like the RSS Engine… but it’s coming in with the new stuff, just slower than planned because i had to deal with the school of two of my kids…

there are some subscriptions ready, for the ones willing to download the old crap or simply support my work!

in the next days, new announcements, once the kids are at school for good!

Free for all for another day or two…

yeap, the few who visited the site in the last days found out that there was no subscription and everybody could download anything… ARGH, i’m ruined!!!

actually not… rofl… i locked down the downloads, i think, but with vB perms that are a mess, i don’t know!

and anyway, what’s on the site is not yet set properly for the « sales ». the new stuff isn’t there, i took time to clean the mess and find a way to build my bundles. but nothing is complete yet, i have to handle subscriptions, post new stuff and merge some projects to have only the essentials… *(as example, everything related to the calendar will be under a single and unique package/bundle)

In the past, the prefered bundle i had was not to have per-year subscriptions or unlimited access for a mega-price, but to have a monthly charge to access everything… like 100$ to have access to the whole site, any type of download. as i do not apply any « branding-free » bullshit, you do not have to come back to pay the extra… so, i think we’ll go with that good formula again, so you have access to everything for a monthly subscription.

support?… given to anybody who downloaded a product, lifetime!…. support, not customization, which is a seperate service. you need an additional feature, you ask for paid service.

so that’s it… no more freebie btw, all and everything free is delivered on vb.org. everything gift is delivered in the numerous packages offered to any subscriber.

2 hours / day… that’s all i can give you folks!

Most of the guys here aren’t aware of this, but i have a family… yeap! 7 kids and a wife… And i’m the gifted one to work from home when my wife is out for her job. So as this site is my main revenue, i have to focus on the work that is done here… At least 2 hours per day. The kids take all the rest… 🙂

So this is to be taken in consideration if you ask for a paid job… I usually reserve half of my work time to dedicated contracts, so about one hour per day… If you need more, the charges will raise accordingly. I’m sure you all understand that.. 🙂
