PunBB Twitter – Twitter Updater for PunBB Forum

This morning I got this idea to make an extension for PunBB forum engine that will update twitter status upon new posts and other activities. Few hours back I have completed it.  It may need many many improvements. But yep, its ready for testing.

Current Version: 0.8

Current features:

  1. Configurable account
  2. Update on creation of new topic
  3. Update on reply on topic
  4. Update on new registration (future)
  5. Control update types (v0.5)
  6. URL shortening using to.ly (v.06)
  7. Skip forums. Updates not posted in twitter when posted on those forums.

Do you have any other update idea? please share me. I will add that too.

Special thanks to Lee Findlow. I have used his class for updating posting message in twitter.

Projanmo Forum got a new home!

Yep! Its true! Projanmo Forum is now getting young. It need some dedicated space & privacy. Now it should not share the same room with others :-). So, today it got a home of its own.

I have purchased a new VPS for Projanmo Forum. Today at 3.35PM I have completed migration of all databases & files to its new home. Migration was almost seamless because I have performed trial migration twice. A minor mistake was that I forget to allow override causing .htaccess was not working. After confirming that everything looks fine I have given the announcement and scheduled a downtime. The downtime was about 30 minutes.

I know Projanmo Community missed their beloved forum for 30 minutes. But they enjoyed the sacrifice for the betterment of the Forum. Thanks to all Projanmo Forum members for always participating in the forum and continuously inspiring me to do something.

Grow up the Baby!

Happy Birthday Projanmo Forum
Oh, the baby is getting one year old just few hours later. I love you too much, I miss you too much. Thats why I always take care of you. My exam, studies and any other barriers could not separate me from you this one year.

Yeah, you are Projanmo Forum. Just one year ago, I whimsically started translating PunBB after seeing the localization of PunBB by Hasin Vy. He did it in ASCII format. But I thought, I should not do it in ASCII. As coming days are of Unicode, I started localizing PunBB in Unicode. On early January of 2007, the work is completed 90%. On January 17/18 of 2007, I uploaded PunBB to server and hosted in forum.projanmo.com. This is also another funny story. I registered the domain without any wishes. But when I localized PunBB, I thought, its a very good match. I can host PunBB under Projanmo name. Continue reading →

Little glue in Bangla

From last months, I was working on Bangla Forum & Bangla Chat. The Bangla Forum lunched last month and the Bangla Chat lunched day before yesterday. Not a bad response.

The forum has got a good response. It crossed 750 posts in less than 1 month. There are also about 475 members in Bangla Chat session in two days.

I am planning to work more with Bangla in future.

Localizing PunBB

Last night I started translating PunBB to Bangla to launch a Bangla Forum. I successfully implemented the writing script developed by Hasin Hayder. 😀

And all other stuffs working fine. Still many strings to translate. Hope to complete within 1-2 days.

If anyone interested regarding this, please contact me.
