You know the mod site on SMF has a search-by-version function, right?

In any case we're aiming to have it far less picky about versions.

HI
I'm sorry to hear that happened to you.  I myself had a similar experience with a "Christian" forum that I was on, and I left them and started my own forum, of which I'm very happy with.  I just recently downloaded the media and it is working beautifully.  Thank you for your hard work!

I do have a question, that may perhaps be simple to you.  I was looking for a BBC button that will play my mp3 files with a small flash player within the posts?  They had one with the my old forum software, but now they don't have one for 2.0.  My members who are "technically challenged" can't play my mp3 files on their computers. (can't figure out how).  I was delighted to see that you have it encoded in your media pack but not sure if they will get how that works either.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

I noticed that you already have a flash player in the gallery.  But the m4p files wouldn't play there.  I noticed they downloaded but wouldn't play.  Is there a setting I can check to correct this?  The mp3 files work great.

If a MP4 file doesn't play, it's because it uses a codec that isn't supported by Flash Player. Simple as that. MP4 is just a container. You need to use H264, and a version of it that's supported.

I never 'dropped' Picasa support, I actually never added it -- what I added was support for external embedding of *all* large pictures. Including Flickr, Picasa etc. You need to link to the full picture, in the embed URL box, and it will do the rest (generate a preview and a thumbnail, create the page etc.)
And that's only in AeMe 2, for what it's worth.

Is it actually confirmed that the current SGL/SGP converters don't work for recent versions of that shitty mod? Well I wouldn't lose my sleep over that but...

Also, can you please tell that person below who's speaking about permissions that I can't do any better than show the link to the relevant permissions page in bold and that they should buy themselves a new brain? :P (Or something more public-friendly, whatever.)

The DB structure appears to have changed slightly since his 'complete rewrite' in 3.0 so no, I don't think it works. But as the reason I'm out $250 is apparently that I was planning to do a better version that 'apparently' was based on his code (what? I'd reuse his crap? I don't think so), I take it as read that nothing based on his code is allowed - which includes converters.

(Oh, and I'm guessing that's the reason. I still don't know for sure since no-one ever actually told me.)

Openness sure ain't his forte. But then again what is?

The easiest way to make a mod site that Kicks the SMF mod sites you know what... is to make it sort mods By version... then be able to look into categories.

Nothing more annoying then finding a great mod and its for a different version, or selecting your version and seeing a 1000 ungrouped mods.
Functionality is more Important than looks... Wait is it the other way around, I forget?

Or better, make shit version independent in the first place, like WordPress mostly does...

Wordpress is pretty shit when I tried a category search with wp_query(); in index.php theme template, it failed, but with category.php it worked.  I actually made a improve version of the shortcode api similar to the one in wordpress which honours user level while wordpress does not and I plan on using that version that with my tag-based bulletin board that I'm building for rockforums.tk using the symfony framework which has a better database abstraction layer compared to wordpress.

Oh, I'm not arguing that it's pretty poor, but at least it does make a reasonable attempt at being version independent.

As for other things, WP is pretty poor generally, I have no idea why it's so popular.

What would you suggest instead?

Well... I'm planning on migrating my WP blog to the SMF fork when it's ready since there is blogging support in there... and I've been using dumps of my WP blog as test data ;)

http://aeva.noisen.com/download/ is where the downloads are available. If you have purchased the paid version, you will be able to access it from there. It's even linked from the list of boards in http://aeva.noisen.com/

Note that support is not guaranteed at all, it is simply as/when/if we have time, energy and opportunity since all energy is really going towards Wedge right now.
