I know many won't appreciate this comment but on your last questions your responded to Paul M, WTF are they thinking with that? Seriously, us coders rely on global_start a lot more than the other global plugins. Is there a reason behind them doing this or are they just doing it because THEY see no point in those hooks? Probably can't answer that question but I had to ask.
Well this thread is probably not the best place to discuss it, but there is no reason to rely on those hooks, in fact, there are a number of alternatives now - and all but one of my mods no longer use global_start (and it will be be changed in that one remaining mod soon as well).
The fact is that with the CMS and blogs, those hooks no longer act the way they were envisaged, so they are going to phase them out. There will be an announcement on vb.com.
Nice interview. Paul, what I really wonder is what it's like living in a houseful of women! I remember what I was like as a teenager and can't imagine having to live with three of teenage me.
Very interesting read and great interview.
I miss the good old vBorg days
Someone should write a book about it, because I don't think we'll ever see those days again with any forum software.
