Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

An Issue + Add custom plugin variable to flyover_register

15 May 2017 Edited
This issue is marked as solved

First to the issue: The plugin Country Flags has the option to require a flag or to make it optional, if you make it required, and you want to register by flyover, it tells u to add choose a flag first, but which is not possible since that plugin is apparently not supported on that page.

I tried adding the custom required field (the variable) to the flyover_register template in order to show country flags, however when i do so, its empty.

This is what i added: {$countryfield} <br />

}                <td class="trow1" valign="top">
                    {$requiredfields} <br />
                    {$countryfield} <br />

Hi, sorry for the late reply. Guess I forgot to add the hook. Open flyover.php, find:

if ($errors) {
$errors inline_error($errors);

Add below:

The $countryfield variable should then be accessible.
