Well, at anytime I am usually working with different software. SMF, MyBB, phpBB, vBulletin, and also xenforo and others. So if you need any ideas and such let me know. I don't mind at all.
Well, this is based on SMF 2 and still shares a lot of things with it, including the database scheme (though with quite some extensions).



SMF is pretty nice to work with. I've gone back and forth with it. Never really did a fork from it. I do fork FluxBB and PunBB a lot.

Activity is always a big thing to do, even if it's a little at a time.

Looking around here it looks pretty dead. Let's get this place going again. :)
Well, it basically is dead, since I do no longer have time to work on it. That may change in the future, but right now, I highly doubt this. It was a personal project to develop a forum software with certain features for a site that was never realized, because the owners changed their mind. After that, I continued it a while for a personal project, but lost interest at some point.

So yes, there is next to zero activity here, apart from the odd spam bot every now and then. Whether this will change I cannot say. The software itself is still available on github, but unless you're a developer with quite some experience, it's probably useless, because installation and configuration is unfinished and may not even work at all.

I don't know, that would imply having a lot of potential calls to the server if the user is allowed to tag multiple times.  In this kind of cases where theres two options, having a very big query versus having multiple smaller queries I always tend to go for the big single query, specially if this query would be used across several users at the same time (since it would be basically fetching a text file). You can always put limits to the query if things get complicated or disable the ability to tag altogether.

Nope, I only fetch active users (is_activated = 1) and users with X post or more where X can be defined by the admin, other than that yes I fetch the entire table. I know this can be a problem with a large forum but then again most of the features on this mod will be a problem with a large forum.
Well, I always try to avoid potential performance issues, though there are a few, especially with the rating + notifications system in EoS - completely untested, but my guess is that thousands of post ratings every hour (something that can happen on a very busy forum) could pose a potential performance issue.

Simple idea: Why not fetch the user data after the first letter has been typed? This could reduce the number of possible matches significantly. Of course, it would be a problem when the user mistyped the first letter and decides to go back, in which case, you would have to repeat the query for a different starting letter.

But how exactly do you perform the database lookups for the user names?

Its just a plain query to the users table, the query fetches the real_name ad the ID and return the data as a json file, the mention script fires an ajx call to this special action and it gets the daa in json format.
But you're returning the entire user db in this call?

This special action handles all my ajax calls https://github.com/MissAllSunday/Breeze/blob/develop/Sources/Breeze/BreezeAjax.php via subactions it strips all data and headers before printing the response back.

Well, thats as far as I could go really, the script itself fires up an ajax call everytime the user types the @, thats cool for simple queries to text files or simple demo pages but for something real like a forum userbase thats just not possible as it would kill the server. Thats why I end up wrapping the ajax call to be fire up only on focus() , that alone drastically reduced the number of ajax request the script does, the retrieved data gets appended to the DOM so all the sorting and juggling are done on client side which is really a nice plus to have.
But how exactly do you perform the database lookups for the user names?

I know, it's a performance thing - looking up on every letter typed by the user would generate way too many requests, so that's not a solution.

At some point, I had the idea of implementing "lightweight" requests, particularly for requesting json responses. Such a lightweight request would skip all the heavy initializations like loadTheme(), loadBoard() and so on, because this isn't really needed for a simple database lookup. Loading the session, permissions and user data would still be required though, and with some testing, I found out that you don't gain much from skipping a few initializations, so I quickly forgot the idea.

For small forums (probably for the majority of all forums out there) you could simply fetch all username at once and cache them using our caching system - refreshing this cache every couple of hours or maybe every time a new member registers would be enough.

Still, you would need to fetch the username cache when a member performs a lookup and store it somewhere (preferably in the browser to make lookups completely client-sided). With a large member base, the cache could easily be a couple of megabytes in size, but memory isn't really the problem here, it would just generate a lot of traffic.

I tried the SMF autosuggest feature, perhaps it was me but I didn't find it easy to customize and besides it wasn't designed to work on textareas.
The latter can be done quite easily (just a bit work on the JS). What autosuggest does is that it requires the user to know the first 3 letters of the username - it will only query the database after the first three letters have been typed. This is a reasonable compromise, but with a large member base, the list of names sharing the first three letters can be large enough to present the user a very long list of names.

I certainly don't know how can it be optimized and I only had tested it on local and on my site so I still don't know how it will behave with a large userbase. The things I did to minimize server hits were based upon assumptions and common sense :P

What was really nice is that the script lets you output the data back to the textarea in any way you want, I chose this format because that was an easy way to get the data with regex but I know I could write the data back in a fancy and more stylish way like @username and pass the real data on some hidden post var then do the replace on parsing.

yeah, most likely a spam user :(
Well, maybe, but since there are no annoying links in the post and new users cannot abuse signatures for spam, I don't mind :)
"Suki" said:
Anyways, for my neeeds I end up using a really nice plugin for notifications: https://github.com/ichord/At.js
That looks good, but imho not enough "lightweight" - maybe it can be stripped down a bit :)

I've planned to use a modified version of the already present username-lookup in SMF (what's being used for adding buddies, for example), but since there are still some unresolved difficulties, it's not yet implemented, so auto-complete doesn't work.

Notifications should, however, work :) @Suki: testing...
