Source code to this discussion forum software?
Does Joel have plans for releasing the source to this discussion forum software that he is currently using? Its nice and simple, and I'd like to see how he did the 'design' of it, to learn ASP, etc.
Hey, maybe Microsoft will give you the source to Windows too, so you can learn C and assembly.
Wow, did I leap without looking. I thought you asked for the source to FogBUGZ! My mistake, sorry!
You do get the source to FogBugz, when you buy it. Its ASP, its rather difficult to not get the source (as I understand it, I'm a perl programmer, and just know about ASP what I've heard :)
I'm not asking for FogBugz source here people.
John Conners wrote a very similar package, using PHP and MySQL. I don't think he has it on his own site anymore, but he graciously allowed me to use the forum software on my site:
It's still on John's site. See http://www.jbconners.com/backend/CommentsSystemTemplate/AWeblogWithComments.html
I don't think the software that John Topley points us to is the same software that is running on the Astrocyte website. The software on the Astrocyte site looks identical, in functionality at least, to the discussion forum software that Joel uses.
