myfreefriends.org - getting started

All software projects are subject to that tedious period of time between conception and the point where something is actually visible.

Whilst there is a heck of a lot to be done here, it does at least start off with a small initial hurdle in this regard.

Essentially we need a link on the forum where people can click and have accounts created/managed and login sessions handled. I fancy we have one small advantage on this over some other systems. php the programming language has a lot more by way of session handling libraries in later versions, and we know our servers have those versions. Unlike phpbb2/3 or Joomla we don't need to bother about compatibility with older servers

So this will be the target for the week. A system where you can join up and have access to, well nothing at all

Of course prior to even session handling, there is the grunt work of setting up a local test domain, CVS system, Joomla installation and creation of basic framework components for the project.

But a slow start doing the automatic bits is often all to the good, there is never a hurry to commit to design decisions that will then have to be lived with.

I was enormously impressed when working for a small company and they actually allowed us to prototype something and then almost literally throw away the prototype. I was anticipating a "wow thats working well" which it was, "can't you turn it into the product?"

First change of plan that should speed things along is to go with Joomla session/user management and build on it, rather than creating a parallel system. Better to strim that system down later than a clunky add on that will not fit easily within the Joomla framework.

This means tomorrow I can get right on to the automatic registration system.
