the most annoying bug in pouet

category: general [glöplog]
the most annoying bug in pouet is that large words in comments completly destroy the layout. how about automatically inserting spaces when a word exceeds 80 characters? that's bad for web-links but good for everything else.

yes and limiting image sizes could be nice too.

and more important - optimize the speed! :-)
Well, scene.org is slow sometimes too, so it's probably not just pouet's fault..

A cool addition would be "upload logo" stuff. Where ppl can upload their ugly logos and everyone can vote then. :P

web-links with more than 80 characters? ;)
yes. space limit would be cool. also pixture size limit. i don´t want to see 3000 x 2000 pixel pictures as a comment to a demo.

äh, picture sice limit, even. pixel size. you know what a mean. image size even :)

perhaps they should install some of those php-optimzing-thingies on the scene.org server.
How about you just ban anyone who uses an >80 character word?

How about closing poeut.net ?

the bug in pouet is pouet itself.

it's funny, i thought the bug wasn't pouet, but its users

Code: <?php $MAX_LINE_WIDTH = 80; function _echo ($text) { global $MAX_LINE_WIDTH; echo (wordwrap ( $text, $MAX_LINE_WIDTH, "\n", 1)); } // fetch from db stuff _echo ("break this looooooong line..."); ?>

get a wrapper 'cause you'll need one the next time someone finds an obscure way of fscking pouet's layout...

errr, pouet killed my slash, it should be wordwrap ( $text, $MAX_LINE_WIDTH, "\n", 1);

While on the subject guys, I do php development for a living. Anyone wants any help, debugging some pouet code, I can help. Thanx.

And how is this for a proposal? How about requesting pouet users to behave sensibly and carefully take responsability for your actions for the benefit of all users?

If you don't like large images, don't link to them, and cut the throat of those who do.

I don't think analogue is to be held responsible for all of pouet maladies.

Yes please. Someone should correct the bug. Mot and Analogue should contact and do the job. It is really annoying and destroys the pouet layout. I hope we won't just laugh and forget this thread..

and exchange that ms sql server with a mysql server. ms sql server is f*cking slow

First of all:
"The site www.pouet.net is running Apache/1.3.27 (Unix) PHP/4.3.1 on Linux" (Netcraft)

With that in mind, I find it extremely hard to believe that analogue or the scene.org staff:

- got into the trouble of finding out how to succesfully compile freetds support into PHP, so that they can access ms-sql / sybase databases (yes, they use the same protocol).
- ever thought of even one good reason to install ms-sql in the first place
- paid the licence required for a ms-sql web deployment
- changed the whole site php code from mysql commands to mssql commands (database access it's not transparent in native php).

No, it's mysql alright. Only the scene.org servers are quite loaded most of the time, and the mysql version is lower than 4.0, so it doesn't do any caching.

perhaps pouet.net is a bit too dynamic :-)
