First topic message reminder :

Hello everyone,

After careful consideration, I've decided that I'll be closing this forum soon. Over the past few months I've lost interest in working on forums and just programming in general. With things as they are I wont be able to assist with support requests and there will be many unanswered topics if I continued to leave this forum open. So starting next year I will be placing the forum in read-only mode. You'll be able to still view the topics here, however you will not be able to reply or create new topics.

This will probably kill most support for Forumactif Edge, but if anyone is able to help someone with a question you can either link them to an existing topic here or try to help them. The structure of FAE is not much different from phpbb3 or modernbb, so I ask that you at least first try to help someone in need before sending them to another forum. It made me happy to see so many people using FAE, so I don't wish to leave those using it without anywhere to ask for help. Forumactif Edge will still be available for use and installation, it's just that I wont be available to help with support, so don't worry ; your forums will stay the same ! Thumb left

As for what I'll be doing from now on.. I'm not sure yet, however I'd prefer a hobby where I'm not staring at a computer screen all day. Razz

Thanks for reading and happy holidays.

I totally appreciate some of you taking on support for Forumactif Edge. It's good to know there'll be people who'll help out FAE users. If extensive changes ever need to be made to the software, feel free to let me know and I can allow collaborator access to the main repo on github, OR if I'm unreachable for whatever reason (or you just want to make a new version of FAE) you can also fork the repo and host your own version of FAE ; you'll mostly just have to replace "SethClydesdale" and "sethclydesdale" with your github username in all files, then copy the updated installer code and it should be linked to your repo. Never tried it before, but it *may* require a reinstallation to sync some elements, such as the footer link.

As for updates to your version take a look at the updates folder for examples. (If you're familiar with JSON it should be easy to work with) pre-update-data.js is used for beta testing a new version, simply add the new version string to the end of the array, then execute the script below in your console while in the FAE Control panel. (sometimes you may need to wait for the raw file to be updated, so click the "raw" button and refresh the page every few minutes until your new version string appears) Make sure your version string, matches the update file : like "1.2.5" matches 1.2.5.js for example, otherwise your update instructions wont be found.
// Check for updates
document.getElementById('fae_update').onclick = function() {
  FAE.log(FAE.cp_lang.fae_update_check || 'Checking for updates on Github...');
  document.getElementById('fae_options').style.display = 'none';

  $.get(FAE.raw + 'updates/pre-update-data.js', function(d) {
    FAE.script(d.replace(/forumactif_edge_version_data/, 'fae_github_version_data'));
    FAE.version_string = d; // save version data for later so we can update the forum version info

    if (forumactif_edge_version_data.length < fae_github_version_data.length) {

      FAE.update_queue = fae_github_version_data.slice(forumactif_edge_version_data.length, fae_github_version_data.length);
      FAE.update_index = -1;
      FAE.update_quota = FAE.update_queue.length;

      FAE.log(FAE.update_queue.length + ' update' + ( i == 1 ? '' : 's' ) + ' found.');
      FAE.log(FAE.cp_lang.fae_update_prepare || 'Preparing to fetch update instructions, please do not close this tab...');

      FAE.step = [];

    } else {
      FAE.log(FAE.cp_lang.fae_update_good || 'Forumactif Edge is up to date!', 'color:#8B5;font-weight:bold;');
      document.getElementById('fae_options').style.display = 'block';
Once you confirm the update working all you need to do is update version-data.js (in the javascripts folder) with the new version string and publish a new release with the update notes. (Make sure the release title is vMAJOR.MINOR.PATCH (v1.2.5 for example) ; see ) Once the update goes through, people using your version of FAE will be notified of a new update. I hope this info helps anyone interested in tinkering with FAE. Razz

Thanks again for all of your replies. <3

Maybe giving us the forums or giving us the full tool belt would help this update even more.

Thank you for your replies everyone. It made me happy to read each and every one. Today is the first day of 2018, as such I will be setting the forum to read-only mode. As much as I enjoyed helping people and creating things for Forumotion over the years, I've decided it's time for me to move on. Once again I thank you all for your words and would also like to thank everyone for helping me grow along the way. I hope that the knowledge available here will help people for years to come.

I wish you all a wonderful new year filled with one of the blessings below.
