[ This is a test blog, with posts about the development of b2, and comments ]

[ Bugs/suggestions ? Check the Forums ! ]


Some users live in timezones that are GMT +5:30 or something, just not plain hours like GMT +5 or +6. They could try typing 5.5 in the time difference field in Options, but it would always be rounded to 5 or 6, because of an error in b2's table structure.

If you live in such a timezone, don't worry: here's the fix !
(This fix will be included in the next version.)

Remember post-via-email ? It's almost completely coded, and you can beta test it on your own server now.

Should I be able to post here? Is this blog open for posters, or did I run into a bug?

[ Edited by Michel ]
You didn't run into a bug, you only logged on using someone's old account that has login 'hello' and pass 'hello'. Users used to be able to post here once they register, you just reminded me that I got to set these old testing users' level to zero so their accounts can't be used anymore ; )

If you just tried b2 and were a bit frightened by the default template, here's a nice b2 tutorial, by Ecila.

Today is b2's birthday ! : D 
The project started as an exercise last year on the 9th of June, with a first public release (v0.2) on the 3rd of July.
It's amazing to see so many people using it today, I'm thankful and proud of it. Thanks to all users !

I just updated my Amazon wishlist, the first time I did that since december. Don't worry, future updates won't warrant a new post here. ; ) 
Also, [[somemoneywebsite]] finally works with me, so starting from today I am accepting donations.
Just a friendly reminder though: b2 is not donation-ware, it's still totally free: you're free to donate or not to donate.
Actually, tomorrow is my birthday. ; ) 

Update: [[somemoneywebsite]] button is there now.

Lately I've seen a lot of hits coming from pages that talk about a security flaw in b2.
If you came here from one of these pages, here I tell you this bug has been fixed in the release version... in early May. And I even announced that bug etc (if you look down, it's just two posts below this one).

So now, if everyone could just stop submitting that same bug to every ****ing security sites on the 'net, it would be cool: it's a FIXED bug, for Christ's sake.

Incidentally, I've been working on CaféLog 1.0, from the b2 codebase and I'm not happy of the results; so I may rewrite the whole thing, for a whole lot of purposes: compatibility with PHP 4.2.0 even without register_globals on, Smarty templating (possibly even make the interface templatable), post-via-email, database-abstraction, and all sorts of goodies. There may be a pre-version available in July if I code fast, and then a finished code by September (I'm taking August off for travelling !). Don't consider these release dates as promises though.
When I can, I'll reduce some of the new features as 'hacks' for b2 in the forums (especially the post-via-email interface, which isn't released yet because of a weird bug with Outlook-generated emails).

About the lack of support, email replies, and updates: I'm losing my job by the end of July because the place closes doors, so I'm very busy with searching another one... (anyone could hire a french PHP coder ? pretty please ^_^ ? I don't bite !)

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.

Contact info ?
E-mail: m@tidakada.com
Forums: over there. :)
