Farewell

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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

The main reason is that I want to keep some features restricted to this site. Many forums have unique features, this can be one of them.

Anyway, CSS support is already available (a stylesheet named at.css is added to your themes upon installation, as stated in the release notes). The bug is known and under investigation, but it seems like a bug of At.js which I have not developed myself. I will investigate though, thank you @Eldenroot.

Yeah, I understand. However your plugin would offer full solution for MyBB which is really great but these kind of feature is really missing :(

Is there any way how to add full url pathway into "title" atribute on mouse hover?

Moreover, I like your way how you custumized the looks of mentioned links - I successfully added font awesome icon, but I have an issue with background css - not accepted

Find inc/plugins/quickreferences.php, line 275:

$threads[$thread['tid']] = "<a href='" get_thread_link($thread['tid']) . "'>" $thread['subject'] . "</a>"
You can tweak around with the HTML here. I've added a "quick_reference" class on MyBBoost but it's likely I will add it to the public 1.2 too.

What's the background issue you're having? Doesn't seem to be a plugin's issue but a theming issue. Unfortunately, I don't support custom theming.

Thank you, it would be nice to add a class tag into your next release to provide easier way for own customization.

I solved it, nevermind my friend - I need to buy new glasses or bigger display :D

My solution (for everyone else) - add this into global.css

/** URL links in posts/threads customization **/
.post_content a:link:before {
    
content"\f0c1";
    
font-familyFontAwesome;
    
font-weightnormal;
    
margin-right3px;
    
displayinline-block;

I obviously have a ton of respect for your work and I think you should do as you please with it. However, I am pretty against this type of thinking in general. Realistically, the overlap between potential users of this forum (a site about MyBB plugins) versus other communities that could use these features (my Beyblade site, a hockey community, who knows?) is pretty much zero. Realistically, there's nothing to lose by releasing this stuff (except the time spent supporting it for others, which is a legit concern).

I'd love to be able to release more of the stuff I work on, but it's 1. usually heavily based on the work of others, and 2. really sloppily done. :')

Anyway, just some food for thought. Thanks so much for everything you already do.

Interesting point of view @brad-t. I have as much respect to you as you do have for my works, and you certainly got some solid points there. I will undoubtedly think about it when I will be back.

He's using the same library, so it's likely you load the library twice. I won't support third parties, but a simple edit to remove the framework from the one that loads the most afterwards should be enough.

Yes, you are right.

Can you provide (after your exams when you have enought free time) any straight forward how to make them working together? I will try myself, I hope I will solve this issue (if yes, I will post an instructions here).

Another solution - offer all in one plugin with user and thread mentions in future

Keep good work!

@Shade - I hope your exams are done without any issues. Can se expect new version with unicode and no avatar fixes?
