I will be programming a new website for myself

Unread post by 3ICE »

Yes, I will be programming a new website for myself!
Out of boredom, for practice, and because I am frustrated about the limitations imposed upon me in the current setup I have. (See below.)
  • I want something I made myself, not just a tweaked phpBB + WordPress with all the inherited vulnerabilities and well-known exploits they have (downside of being open source).
  • It will be JavaScript-driven, using XMLHttpRequest to load each post individually.
  • It will be a blog and a forum at the same time, tags replace categories, the first post is treated as a blog post, the responses are comments.
  • Each post will have three dates: When (2010-05-05 16:01:30), how long ago (58 seconds ago), and how long after the previous post (16 minutes later). 2010-05-05 16:01:30 | 58 seconds ago | 16 minutes later (This is a work in progress, needs to make more sense.)
  • I already decided on the pitch-black background color and 17px font size: Example Font color is going to change from white to something else, like: Example
  • Posts will have rounded corners. I am counting on browsers to add support for CSS3 border-radius soon. (IE8 and below fails. Opera9 and below fails.)
  • Each posts will have an edit history and versions will be comparable.
  • We will post using HTML, not BBCode (Newbies will have access to WYSIWYG and cleartext editors of course.) Default will be a simple textbox that goes into <pre>.
  • Posting <script>s will be allowed! Dangerous, but very useful.
  • Enforced spell checker for some of the most common misspellings. For example: If your post contains the string "alot" (Proper spelling is "a lot"!) you will be presented with a red error message and the submit button will be disabled until you fix the error or dismiss the error message.
  • And I have to finish it before SC2 is released. EDIT: Fail. SC2 is released next week and I'm not even close to being done.
One problem with the current setup for example:
WordPress keeps changing my code to what it thinks is better, but actually fails: <br /> sometimes changes to <p></p> when all I wanted is an extra line after an image. <p> on the other hand turns into <div> for no reason. And nested <div>s unnest themselves automatically! And the changes only occur after I click on publish. Frustrating...

You shouldn't strain yourself there.
