Forum core source dump (as of July 31)

I would have finished this a while ago, but I’m in the middle of moving to a new apartment. Until that’s over, I figured I’ll dump what I have so far on the forum.

And I’ve finally settled on a name for this. I shall hereby call this forum script : theForum. Yeah, points for originality there. And of course, this will contain errors, incomplete functions/functionality and other terrible things, so be careful when using any part of this in your own projects. And on top of that the WordPress source code formatting is a bit off making error checking even more vital.

WARNING: This will be a very, very, very long post (7 pages total)!

  2. This was a very interesting read for me!
    Although I have a question,
    I am a beginning php programmer, currently developing drupal modules on my internship, but looking to develop some sort of forum script/cms/framework/… . I’m not planning on actually making it public, it’s just a personal project to teach myself some things. So, my question…, I saw in your main.php you do:
    Core::getInstance and Modules::getInstance, is it the same as doing:
    $core = new Core();
    $core->getInstance(…); ? and did you have to define ‘Core’ somewhere or does php automatically recognise it as a class and searches for it (with the autoload function you wrote)?
    thanks in advance!

    You can contact me on my email if you want

    • Hi Jelle

      Yes, the basic idea is to let the autoload function load the class dynamically so you wouldn’t need to declare it elsewhere.

      Technically $core = new Core(); wouldn’t work in this case becuse the __construct function in that class is set to private.

      So you would always have to use the getInstance method when you want to create a new instance unless you’re calling new Core() inside the Core class itself.
