I have created
a perl version of the Code Project Discussion Forums. The perl
version of the forum is very basic and lacks a lot of features.
This project is an open-source project meaning that I am urging
perl programmers to help make this forum better. Feel free to add
features but don't forget to report them so I can update the
source code file. Currently the forums don't use some sort of a
database but future releases will use the mySQL database. This is
only BETA 1 of version 1.0. The forums are tested under Apache
for Win32. Currently there is no admin feature but future
releases will definitely include an admin section.
Lets get our hands dirty...
Instructions on how to install the script are included in the zip file. Installing the script is very easy. The project is made up of 7 files and 2 directories.
Where the emoticon icons are stored.
Where the reply forms are stored
|Install.txt: ||Contains instruction on how to install the script. |
|global.css: ||The CSS file used for the HTML pages. |
|forum.pl: ||This does the hard work. |
|forum.html: ||This file contains the messages posted. |
|data.txt: ||A simple text file that keeps a count of how many messages are posted. |
|new.html: ||The form for posting a new message. |
all there is to it.
is lots of work to be done with the Perl Discussion Forums. The
new versions will be releases right here at Code Project. Please
give some feed back!
