There's no reason for it to report a virus upon visiting a simple webpage. You're not even downloading anything. I think they call this a "false positive". I think I know why it was saying that it has malware. In looking at the HTML, there's some JavaScript that runs an "eval" on an escaped-charact...

QB45 doesn't have an RSS feed. I can make one if you'd be interested.

Looks like games.qbasic.com was hit with the same spam-attack vulnerability we were hit with awhile back. To remedy it, you have to clean your source files, and then update all of your web system software, mainly php and mysql (if applicable), as well as (usually) apache itself. This particular att...

I'm trying to stay away from a linear forum layout but the one at QB45.com is the one I made. It's simple and threaded.

I was thinking of making one unique to QBasic.com. It's not that PunBB is bad, but the site would look more unique if there was something different than phpBB or SMF. I was thinking something along the lines of QB45.com's discussion board but different.

Wordpress is fairly simple to set up but it's more geared on websites that have more of a blog-type feel for them. I mean there's nothing wrong with it, but it might be tough if the forum moves to QBasic.com.

I think something simple like you described would be good. All the information on the front page is the way to go. I don't think QBasic.com really provides anything besides the Qmunity and maybe the file host and games section.

Joomla is pretty good. With the right layout and theme, it's almost undetectable. Most CMSes I see can be distinguished because of their layout and similar themes. Joomla would be good but I'd suggest either making or using a different theme than the original. On QB45, I wrote the CMS instead of usi...

I agree. We should ask what they're wishes are and if they decide to go along with it, we can make a better QBasic.com. I know N54's design is very old and somewhat resembles an old WWWBoard site, I would suggest for something simple but not overly simple. When Marcade and I were working on QB45, he...

If people agree to have it moved, I'll write a forum that mimics the one at N54. It's a simple design, but as long as there's a MySQL database and PHP available, I can do it. I'll try to make a crawler in PHP that'll read all the posts and record them into a MySQL database. It'll probably take a whi...

Just a quick tip, don't pull a Mike Doise and use PostNuke, which really "nuked" QB45 back in the day. I definitely understand about preserving the QB forum since the forum at N54 has been around forever, but I guess I was just thinking of what might happen when there's another "Zip" that comes alon...

To preserve the site or at least make it somewhat-like it's been preserved, I can make a PHP crawler to record each post and the date and time. I can make a PHP forum similar to N54's since the design is very simple. At least it would be centralized so the site itself would get more hits.

Personally I think QBasic.com is held together by strings. I mean the forums are linked to Network54, the pages all contain hidden links, and the homepage looks very plain and almost like someone made it in an intro web design class. Pete, your site ranks the 1st QB site when "qbasic" is entered in ...

I think so too. I started losing interest in the QuickBASIC GUI Blog, so I passed the torch over to Brandon since he has more interest in it than me. It's just downright cold to leave a website up and not change anything but not let anyone go near it. I personally think a fair compromise would be to...

I think it might be because he gave up on it. I mean the site was hacked, shut down by its web host, and just left to rot. I'd personally fix it up but I don't know how much of a use it would be. Plus I've got finals coming up soon so I'll be even busier. Also, I don't know who did it, but there are...

I use a tool called IP-Atlas which does just the same as whatsmyipaddress.com but to a lesser extent. One of my forums is getting hit with spammers who try to cleverly disguise themselves as admins from other sites who say I've been placed on a ban list, but just Googling their message turns up resu...

If you enjoy doing that then fine. I don't think that Pete wants to constantly oversee that stuff. Especially spam! When you get older and wiser you will probably not be so inclined. I have to laugh at members doing it. You can prosecute easily when you have their IP and email address. User friendl...

Re: How it works at QB Station

No way should just anybody upload files! After all, they can't post here without logging in. You could get virus or trojan uploads from idiots too. If they want to upload a file, they need to at least join. Then you can go after the idiots! Anyone, even members, could upload trojans to any website....

When Marcade and I were bringing back QB45, I decided on the idea of having files uploaded but approved or denied by a moderator or admin. It's actually pretty decent for what it does. Most spam bots put nothing in the files and just load the descriptions with links. But at least I oversee what file...
