The nested folders are the problem Sad - How about getting some cheap Webspace, a Domain and running your own Webmail Client? squirrelmail Supports nested folders  (I think most IMAP clients do). No "big" freemailer (msn, yahoo, gmx, gmail)  supports nested folders I fear...

Yes - it uses the IE Controll - IE is prompting me if I want to allow ActiveX when Im trying to capture a page with flash content...

I like this tool - I want one in this fashion but with support for multiple Browser - IE5, 6, 7,  Opera and Firefox... Maybe this would cool as Screenshot Captor fork Wink

Your right - I havent tried Dopus yet - MAYBE I give it a try on the weekend... On the other hand it is quite expensive (even with the discount) for a "tuned" Explorer... Well, I will see...
109  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Searching Shell Extension to Filter filelists on: June 28, 2006, 06:16:48 PM
hehehe - I tried so much replacements - they just do not "feel right" for me - this must sound insane - I know...
110  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Searching Shell Extension to Filter filelists on: June 28, 2006, 06:10:34 PM
I thought of this option, but I dont want to replace my Explorer completly. I cant give reasons why, it is something in my mind which does not allow me to switch Wink

I found a tool which goes in the right way - http://www.risefly.com/FileFilter.htm - but it is "too much" and it is shareware (opensource would be highly appreciated)
111  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Searching Shell Extension to Filter filelists on: June 28, 2006, 05:56:56 PM

Im searching for a Windows Explorer extension, which allows me to "filter" the "details"-view. The best case tool would add a textbox on top (or bottom) of the Explorer-Window. When Im start typing a pattern (like: log*.txt) into it, it will hide all Files which doesen't match this pattern. Do you know something like this?

Just an Idea: Referer Donations
If a Boardmember introduces someone to DC and this new guy joins the forum or donates to a programm, maybe the referer could get a little donation? The new guy just have to say at registration who is his / her referer...

Hello Admins and Mods smiley

this sounds really well, but there are some unsolved issues.
1) I keep wondering how the Pages could be integrated in the Navigation, without letting users change the Navi?

2) The Sidebars: Should a User be able to create a Sidebar for her / his own Article? Or would it be better if there are several standard sidebars, which could be inserted "context sensitiv"?

  • Output should be static HTML/php pages for minimal CPU performance hit.
I like the semi-static PHP approach - if we have comments on the pages, it is nearly impossible to be 100% static - but 1 call to the Forums DB should be cheap.
BUT this approach makes it harder to offer full text search on the page, without having something like Apache Lucene running in the background. The Zend Framework offers a interface for Lucene, but Lucene is still needed in the backend, because Zend haven't done the indexer port to PHP now...

  • Ideally it would integrate into the forum software to support searching.
this would solve my point above, but then it is not possible to do it "static"? Or do I miss the point?

  • It must integrate into the forum to the extent that its easy for people to add comments on downloads and articles.
This is one method - anotherone would be to create something like a "summery" Post in the Forum for each "content" page. Then the comments can easily go to the forum (which means no spam, new members and authentication for free). Displaying on the "content" page would very easy - just pulling them out of the database.

  • A generic template system that can build on demand create static HTML website hierarchy of pages from "templates" and a hierarchy of content pages.
Huh??? - Sorry, I don't get it...

  • Such a system of being able to extract info from posts might also enable us to build a kind of "bookmarking" system where users can mark which posts threads they want to assemble on a page like a portal.
This would be a great feature - something like a personal portal

  • A generic rebuilding-table might be kept track of so the system knows which static pages need to be rebuild when certain forum "posts" change or are added.
Such a table could be really painfull - and this is the BIG problem with the static approach *ImScared* - and I don't know how often we had to generate static pages - maybe we should drop the static approach and invest time on some caching strategies?

I had some (very "raw") ideas - I told mouser via PM - on how to do this CMS. In the last few hours I thought about some details. I think my approach can satisfy most of the requirements... Give me a little time (Saturday) to put it into words... smiley

117  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Mambo CMS Drama on: May 16, 2006, 07:56:47 PM
Most (all) of the Mambo headdeveloper are now developing on their own "true open source" Mambo fork - Joomla - without Miro in the background... So Mambo is dead - long life Joomla Wink
118  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: The Hunt for the Best CMS on: May 16, 2006, 07:20:09 PM
I have worked in the past with a lot of CMSs (Mambo, Typo3, Rainbow Portal (=ASP.NET), Drupal...) - and I have to tell you that none of them would meet all of those requirements...

But then i'm also thinking a static page generation cms using templates would be best for low-cpu usage (having every page access go through a dynamic cms is a big hit on cpu/memory because of database stuff).
This could be done with Typo3 easily - you can cache Pages or even create Static HTML files after changing a page

And I like having the main site content be in flat files that i can easily edit from home.
Hmmm... this is more the wiki thing - or the Flatfile Version of Mambo (It was a Fork from the original Mambo - dont remember the name right now Sad) - on the other Hand - if you would like to change the layout form home, you could just modify the templates and if you want to create content just use a text editor and pasting it the next time your on the cms

But tight forum integration is a must..
This is not trivial - in fact I think the tight integration is the killer argument for the choosen CMS - on www.tutorials.de (one of the biggest german it-help-communities), which is very forum "centric" we tried to integrate the forum on Typo3 - we failed - so we built the "content" pages around the forum - I think this is the same way you do with the current version of this page...

  • good clean organization for website admin to edit files by hand with custom html
  • but ability for other authors to write articles/long reviews with an easy onsite editor
  • php would be preferred since most everything else on this site is powered by php
  • good search features.
  • looks clean and supports our sidebar theme.
this can be done with Typo3 out of the box

  • ability for coders to be able to host their software nicely
this is imo more a conceptual thing - when you can define what "nicely" means, than you could do it in most cms (building seperate sections with different layouts and so on...)

tight integration with smf forum so people can leave comments on reviews, etc. through the forum and have it listed on the page
I know no CMS which does this well... Sad It's more a Blog thing I think - This feature will be a hack - regardless which cms will be chosen

there is nothing that meets all of these and i expect lots of customization and modification is going to be needed no matter what we choose, but i'm still hoping to start with something instead of starting from scratch..
You are 100% right - there is nothing which offers all of those points and building from scratch is no option - it would grow way to complex. I personly would do this project on a Typo3 (dont hate me Carol Wink) basis with some self coded extensions and I would drop the flatfile requirement... Yes - T3 has a huge learning curve, but it is so incredibly powerfull - it's the C++ in the CMS space Wink
119  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DC Advice: What website organizes a lot of pages and content the best? on: May 10, 2006, 11:06:45 AM
if I had to buid DC from scratch, I would run the following setup:

Software, Specials and discounts, articels: Use a CMS - I would use Typo3 or Drupal - yes I know, we had this before (another topic), but especially Typo is so incredibly powerfull - yes, it has a huge learningcurve, but when your "in" the system you can do anything with it.

Documentation Pages: Some Wiki Software - I prefer "DokuWiki", but Media- or PHPWiki would do the Job also very good. Or Keep them in the CMS

BugTracking: maybe Mantis...

Contests, Reviews: for the Contents and Reviews, I would write a Extension for the CMS to keep them "structured", or keep them as they are

Forum: Hmmmm switching from one Forum to another without losing all posts isnt trivial. I think, I would stay at SMF and tune it a bit - another Theme, some Syntax Coloring Extension and so on

Podcasting: I never used any Podcastsoftware, but I heard loudblog (www.loudblog.de) should be good
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DC Advice: What website organizes a lot of pages and content the best? on: May 10, 2006, 10:21:40 AM
No - I think Microsoft does a pretty good job in organizing huge amount of content on their Site...
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: DC Advice: What website organizes a lot of pages and content the best? on: May 10, 2006, 04:48:33 AM
Sites with huge content and good Navigation:
- www.microsoft.com
- http://www.mozilla.com
- www.typo3.org (lot of Documentation, Extension, News...)
- www.apple.com (Tabs)
- www.amazon.com
- www.imdb.com
- www.sourceforge.net
- www.codeproject.com
- http://espn.go.com/

Negative examples in my opinion:
- www.adobe.com
- www.zdnet.com
- www.xbox.com
- www.apple.com (Sitestructur)
- www.dell.com (I bourght my Laptop there - it was really an Advanture)
- www.t-online.de (the worst big site)

Maybe it can be done clientside - do you know http://www.dreamprojections.com/SyntaxHighlighter/ ? It's one of the best Highlighter I've ever used :-)
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / We need here a better Syntax Highlighter on: May 08, 2006, 02:58:40 PM
the [ code ] Tags just arent engough for a Site with a lot of Code. There should be at least Highlighter for the languages in the Coding School section... what du you think? Is there a "Code Highlighter" out there, which can export its code to BB Code as well?

Donation Coder Highlights
I feel a variety of apps at Donation Coder are worth mentioning here. Several are similar to requests I've seen on the forums, or even other apps. Here are a few worth checking out:

Dkmy: "Hide or show the close box of a window to avoid accidental closure"

HideDesktop: "Hide the desktop icons when the mouse is elsewhere."

StartClock: "Shows the current time in the start button, and date and more in the tray."

FadingTaskbar: "Change the transparency of the taskbar."

Kansas: Switches the shell to explorer and logs off. Designed for those testing out alternative shells. (scroll down on page or d/l here)

LaunchBar Commander: A program launcher. Might be skinnable. I haven't tries it yet, but this may warrant a full new post.

I use rewriteable medias sometimes for some backupjobs - but I use DVD-RAM and not DVD+/-RW. I never had any problem with DVD-RAM Media, but due to the higher costs (5 RAMs about 30 Euro) I consider buying (another) external HDD...
