Confusion in my mind!
Posted by TheGhost Wed Sep 27, 2023 10:51 pm

So, we are not allowed to use <font> tags anymore right?

Yea I thought the same thing, However, if your site is designed in HTML 4 <font> tags are still going fine??

Deprecated as it may be, the font tag is still the only thing that works universally across pretty much all email clients, old and new. Bear in mind that email is not the web and it's still positively antediluvian. Some email services do unspeakable things; I've encountered one that blindly stripped all HTML tags (ignoring provided plain-text versions), and converted linked images to attachments, resulting in an unreadable mess. Even contemplating having inline styles working in the face of such vandalism is truly wishful.

Want to know where the big hole is? Hotmail. Hotmail,, and strip or replace inline styles, yes, started as far back as 2013. Blame MicrosoftHotmail, live,, and outlook. They have all gotten considerably worse over the years (e.g. floats were dropped from 10 years ago, outlook dropped background images in 2007, and they've not been seen since).

Inline styles work in Gmail, but it strips anything outside the body tag. Some corporate mail filters (like BlackSpider/WebSense) do exactly the opposite, so if you want to be completely sure about your styling, you need to put a style tag in the head tag, another copy of it within the body (invalid, but it works), the same styles inline (look at the premailer project), and finally the same styling using font tags. Yes, it's insane, but no amount of wishing is going to make the problem go away. You can of course drop some of these, but by doing so you're implicitly accepting that it's not going to look the same in some places. You need to look at your audience - a new mobile music site can probably get away with it, but a corporate pension provider probably needs to be living in 2003 font-tag land.

Fortunately, Apple Mail, iOS Mail, and iCloud all have vastly superior HTML handling as their Campaign Monitor table shows, as does the email standards project. With the majority of mobile reading using some flavor of WebKit, rendering on mobile is generally much more consistent (and mostly better) which sucks because most of us can afford desktops and use them on the daily.

You could simply say that it's not worth the effort - anyone using crappy mail readers clearly doesn't care that much what their email looks like, but that doesn't mean that your styling isn't going to break.

The old FONT tag is needed to achieve some email styling, for example changing the color of an anchor is something that is hard in different email clients, this will not work well in some clients:
<a href="url-here"style="color:orange">click here</a> but this will work in most all the cases: <a href="url-here"><font color="green">click here</font></a>.

I say all these companies and developers need to move with the time and fix all this so inline styling is all that will be needed!

Holy shit, why are all HTML/e-mail developers and companies stuck in 2003?

PHP-Nuke Titanium Information Update
Posted by TheGhost Wed Sep 27, 2023 10:51 pm

I'm working on the Private Message System. it seems that I will have to change some things for PHP 8. x

When you send a Mass PM it seems the count is not done correctly, and it falsely reports numbers to the wrong inbox. savebox and outbox,

I fixed the attachments in send pm that was not working, Thank you Critical for pointing that out...

The Private Message Manager in the Admin Area is now fixed.

The Attachment System was fixed while I was working on the Private Message System.

The ShoutBox Admin System was broken for what seemed like forever and that is now fixed.

  1. You can now add, edit and delete the admin sticky shouts.
  2. You are now able to edit and delete regular shouts.
  3. I removed the unneeded code.

Arcade Tweaks now works.

Bookmarks have been rewritten.

HTMLpurifier now runs from the vendor dir as it should have been from the start.

We put the axe to the old Zend Cache system
The new one is ZF1 FUTURE and has been modified specifically for PHP-Nuke Titanium and loads from the includes directory,

We have made the entire ZF1 Framework available from the includes directory, and even available for Forum mods, etc.

I'm currently also adding ZF1 Cache back to all the cache instances, they were removed temporarily until we decide on a new cache system.

The new code is not yet running on this website yet, I will update this site with all the changes when I finish repairing the Private Message System.

I have a lot of people eagerly waiting on the new version of PHP-Nuke Titanium that has full PHP 8 support and I am working diligently,

The changes in PHP 8 have silently broken the functionality of a lot of different functions and I am fixing them all one by one.

This website is running PHP 8 already, many of the things that are broken are not obvious however, I see them and I am fixing them.

It sure would be nice if I had a little feedback, I'm going to update GitHub with new code so people can install it and have a look under the hood.

I fixed the original installer so I could update GitHub, however, I am halfway finished writing the new installer for PHP-Nuke Titanium.

A Decison has been made to use ZF1 Future
Posted by TheGhost Wed Sep 27, 2023 10:51 pm

ZF1 Future - Zend Framework

Copyright © 2005-2021 Zend Technologies Inc.

We have done some research and are still doing research and it appears there is a group called ZF1 Future that intends to continue the legacy of Zends original framework.

Zend Framework 1 is now for PHP 8.1!

Classic ZF1 Reborn

Zend may have abandoned the original Zend Framework, but the global Zend Framework Community has not! Since Zend sentenced ZF1 to EOL, the Zend Framework community around the globe has continued to work and build on what we consider to be one of the best PHP frameworks of all time.

ZF1-Future Sponsors

Products and Projects built with ZF1-Future:

Creators of the Tiger Development Platform featuring ZF1-Future

Seiden Group: IBM i modernization, PHP, Python, Node.js, and modern RPG

Creators of CommunityPlus+ PHP for IBM i featuring ZF1-Future

Creators of PHP-Nuke Titanium featuring ZF1-Future

ZF1 is Now Version 1.21!

Over 200 updates and bug fixes since 1.12!

The ZF1 community has been hard at work updating Zend Framework with all of the latest features of PHP 8 and 8.1.

We did not meet our release deadline of Dec 25th
Posted by TheGhost Wed Sep 27, 2023 10:51 pm

We ran into some problems with merging topics and also the statistics mod.

We have fixed the merge topics and now are working on the statistics section.

We are working to get this finished and we are very close to our 1st release.

While we were preparing for PHP 8, PHP 8.1 popped up, and then while working on PHP 8.1 we can already see PHP 9 heading straight for us!

This is moving fast and we are trying to keep up...

We can already see things that are going to be deprecated in PHP 9 and we are already fixing the things that were deprecated in PHP 8.1.

We want to make sure our 1st release does not end up broken a few months after people install it.

We definitely have a working version, however, it does not have every feature the final release will have, we are steadily porting each function to PHP 8.1

PHP 8.1 really did a whammy on functionality. It looks like they did a lot really unnecessary shit if you ask me. IT was all in the name of security and supposedly speed,

We will see!

Why did we name the CMS PHP-Nuke Titanium?
Posted by TheGhost Wed Sep 27, 2023 10:51 pm

Where did the name PHP-Nuke Titanium come from?

It involves a nuclear waste storage concept...

Because of its corrosion resistance, containers made of titanium have been studied for the long-term storage of nuclear waste. Containers lasting more than 100,000 years are thought possible with manufacturing conditions that minimize material defects. A titanium "drip shield" could also be installed over containers of other types to enhance their longevity.

The original PHP-Nuke has been around for 30+ years and we have preserved it in Titanium, PHP-Nuke Titanium to be exact...

Because titanium alloys have the high tensile strength to density ratio, high corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, high crack resistance, and the ability to withstand moderately high temperatures without creeping, they are used in aircraft, armor plating, naval ships, spacecraft, and missiles.

Titanium was discovered in 1791 by the clergyman and amateur geologist William Gregor as an inclusion of a mineral in Cornwall, Great Britain. Gregor recognized the presence of a new element in ilmenite when he found black sand by a stream and noticed the sand was attracted by a magnet. Analyzing the sand, he determined the presence of two metal oxides: iron oxide (explaining the attraction to the magnet) and 45.25% of a white metallic oxide he could not identify. Realizing that the unidentified oxide contained a metal that did not match any known element, Gregor reported his findings to the Royal Geological Society of Cornwall and in the German science journal Crell's Annalen.

Around the same time, Franz-Joseph Müller von Reichenstein produced a similar substance, but could not identify it. The oxide was independently rediscovered in 1795 by Prussian chemist Martin Heinrich Klaproth in rutile from Boinik (the German name of Bajmócska), a village in Hungary (now Bojničky in Slovakia). Klaproth found that it contained a new element and named it for the Titans of Greek mythology. After hearing about Gregor's earlier discovery, he obtained a sample of manaccanite and confirmed it to be titanium.

All of this is how we related the idea to name our Fork of PHP-Nuke, PHP-Nuke Titanium and the story relates...
