For my own personal need, I made a HUGE modification of Mingle Forum.
You can grab my work in GitHub : https://github.com/Xefir/mingle-forum-hacked/
Here is a little changelog of my work :
* Show all dates in localized language
* Date format setting is now part of the WordPress core
* Get login/register page dynamically (compatibility with Theme My Login)
* Generate smilies dynamically (if you have change the functions.php file)
* HUGE code cleanup
* !!! Sub-forums feature !!!
* User Group access and post can be assigned to forum
* Two methods to restict access : access and post
* Spoiler BBCode
* Center BBCode
* HTML validation
* Add Preview before posting (crappy code)
* Add bottom pagination
* Fix display glitches
* Fix -1 threads after delete the last post
* PM link is now an image
* Smilies is at left of message (forumactif like)
Please note that it's AT YOUR OWN RISKS !!!
Please test your blog in a test envirronment before potencially deploy this.
MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR DATABASE BEFORE INSTALL THIS VERSION !!!
Some tables has changed/deleted because of the Sub-forum feature.
If you are interessed, please follow this steps :
- Backup your database
- Disable Mingle Forum and Cartpauj PM
- Upload file in your WP like a regular add-on
- Enable add-on and verify that all is right
I take all report or suggest from this copy, don't hesitate.
