If you weren't on the Star Trek Guide Forums last Saturday at Noon EDT, you missed a really significant event as the STG chatbox tracked the live recording of phpBB Weekly
, episode #021. STG's very own Highway of Life
joined me as a guest on phpBB Weekly to talk about how he built Star Trek Guide and how it transformed from a deck on the Enterprise to center for phpBB3 support and MODs. We then moved on to talking about MODding for phpBB3, including the key things for new MOD authors to focus on, and then we talked about how phpBB3 makes it easier than before to integrate it into a solution for a website.
The Star Trek Guide chatbox was very active during the show, to the point where I ended up following it more than the show's own chatroom. (Sorry to you guys who couldn't get TalkShoe to work.) We had a very excellent discussion, and I really encourage you to check it out. You can listen to the show RIGHT NOW from the phpBB Weekly website
.Coming up this week on phpBB Weekly:
Going further down the road to the Gold Master release, phpBB3 RC-2 was released this week with no less than 113 features, changes, and bugfixes in the changelog. We will be looking at and examining the new version, and covering the best way to update to RC-2 (since we haven?t had an officially supported phpBB3 update before!). In addition, the MOD Authors Convention will be going on during the episode recording. We will be covering all of the highlights from the convention in #phpbb-mod, including live updates of the discussion on phpBB MODding Documentation taking place while the show is being recorded. Plus, we might
even have a MOD Team member join us on the show! Join us to talk about RC-2, MODding, and any other things you want to discuss during this jam-packed episode of phpBB Weekly!
