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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

ThunderBoard beta 6

17 Apr 2016 Edited
ThunderBoard is a plugin currently in development stages which aims to speed up same-page loads on MyBB forums.

[Image: a5xT9bh.gif]

Minimum requirements

PHP 5.4
MyBB 1.8.0


ThunderBoard loads same-page changes with AJAX using TurboLinks. For example, you can switch between forum pages without reloading the entire page and changing just the necessary elements. This lets your users enjoy a faster and smoother navigation. See the picture above or test the plugin by browsing between pages here on MyBBoost.

To install and configure ThunderBoard, read ThunderBoard documentation

Can you elaborate more? No issues here. Edit: sorry, the attachment link was AJAXified as well. Should be fixed by now :)

Yep, the download is working now. :)

FYI – I've uploaded a new beta 1 version which fixes one issue with shutdown functions. It's kinda important but it's not enough to be updated to beta 2. The fix lets you properly update the counters (threads views, last visits, etc.).

A couple of issues;
  • links to external stylesheets break the minification with a 401 error.
  • stylesheets are still minified after disabling the Resource minifier.

both of these issues in conjunction mean the plugin wont work for me.
Shade 20 Apr 2016
Thank you for the report. Stylesheets are indeed minified even if the resource minifier is deactivated - that's because I didn't think about external stylesheets (bad practice nonetheless!). I will update ThunderBoard in the next couple of days.

but it's actually good practice to put your static assets on a cookie-less domain c;

oh, and the multiquote is borked with this theme;
Shade 20 Apr 2016
I've heard it in the past, but never fully understood the benefits. Anyway, I will push an update soon :)
Senpai 20 Apr 2016
the benefit is that the browser doesn't have to send every cookie with each request for every asset.
