The move to a new server completed fine, except for a problem on the boards: those of you who registered and found an activation link going to myserver.tld/phpbb2/, please replace this with tidakada.com/board/ and it will work.
(This problem is fixed now, it was introduced by updating the boards to phpbb 2.01.)

Oops, there was an error in b2install.php last time I uploaded it, that would make b2 not install at all and show a blank page. The releases have been updated to remove that bug.

Turns out all you have to do is find line #19 in b2install.php, and replace:
if (mysql_select_db("$base", $connexion)) {
if (!mysql_select_db("$base", $connexion)) {

I'm going to move cafelog.com and tidakada.com to a new webhost tonight, so the support forums and this site will be down for a few days until the DNS resolve to the new server, starting from tonight at 22:00 GMT.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

In the meanwhile, there's a updated version of b2 in the /releases folder, which fixes the bug with categories and comments, and brings true internationalisation of the date functions.

There was a bug in b2calendar.php, that made calendars have a extra row if you set the start of the week to Sunday. Get the fixed version of b2calendar.php here.

Also, several would-be users reported corrupted zip and sit files in the /releases, the problem was because of some FTP incident, I re-uploaded (with the calendar fix) so it should be OK now.

The 0.6pre3 release has been updated, to include support for Syndic8 and RSS auto-discovery, in default templates and b2-generated RSS. Also, the RSS now displays the <language> tag (set $rss_language='' in the config, check here for possible values).

If you already upgraded, here are the updated files: b2.php, index.php, b2rss.php, b2functions.php.

You can grab the new files' source from the new /source directory, which saves you the trouble of re-downloading a zip file ; )

Some bugs had managed to get in this release, I fixed them and re-packaged the release.
You may want to re-download and update these files: b2archives.php, b2comments.php, b2calendar.php, b2login.php, b2functions.php, b2template.functions.php, b2vars.php

There it is, b2 0.6pre3 is there for the download : ) 

It features several important fixes and improvements:
  • BBCode, GMCode, smilies, are now supported
  • new modes of archive: daily and weekly
  • you can now use a calendar (see the ReadMe)
  • PHP 4.2.x with register_globals Off is now supported
  • archives code has been recoded to make them just much faster
  • the Team listing doesn't show logins anymore to users which are under level 4
  • ...and more ; ) 

Check the releases folder !

I'm still working on the b2mail.php file, so it wasn't included in this version yet, but it might be there in a few days.

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. :)
