I'm making these in mIRC "forums". I use the ini playback, and ini write commands to make posts. There is one problem though, when posting on a "thread" if you have already posted there it overwrites your original post. What I'd like is, how to add a number to the nick. Like... If I post once, then my name would be Proselyte01 for that "thread", then next Proselyte02, and on and on my name keeps changing going up and up. Here is my "forum" ini file:
Code:
 [Welcome]
Proselyte=Ok thanks for the welcome
Grau=kthx for the welcome, <censored> hole
[NewThread]
Proselyte=Yo guys sup this is a new "thread"
[GUYS]
Grau=DUDE, THIS THING JUST HAPPENED, THIS THING IS ELITE
 

The [Blah] are the threads. The Proselyte=Ok thanks blah blah are the posts. The way I do this is :
Code:
on *:Text:*`Board*:#WireScrim,#test:{
  writeini Board.ini $2 $nick $3- 
  notice $nick You have posted. Type `Read Board.ini to read posts made.
}
  


As you notice i use $nick, but I was thinking of a number added to the name. Help? Also I'd like something to delete the posts, for certain people. What's the command to delete lines from the ini?

I'd set it up by hash table. Have an id for each post, and a "parent" id for each one. Ex:

the thread would get (for example) and id of 1 and get a parent id of, say, -1 saying that its a parent. Next, a post in that same thread would have a new id (make it two for the example), but the parent id of 1 saying that its attached to the thread. So you end up with a tree of thread topics like:

Main Discussion (ID:1,PID:-1)
Script Help (ID:2,PID:-1)
Problems (ID:3,PID:-1)

Then say someone makes a thread under main, it would look like:

Hello everyone (ID:4,PID:1)
This is some text in a thread that someone can respond to

Then a post under that would get:

Reply: Hello everyone (ID:5,PID:4)
Hoows it goin

Now you end up with a tree:

Code:
[ Main Discussion ]             (ID:1,PID:-1)
  +- Hello Everyone             (ID:4,PID:1)
    +- Reply: Hello everyone    (ID:5,PID:4)
    +- Reply: Hello everyone    (ID:6,PID:4)

[ Script Help ]                 (ID:2,PID:-1)
  +- New Thread                 (ID:7,PID:2)
    +- Reply: New Thread        (ID:8,PID:7)

[ Problems ]                    (ID:3,PID:-1)

When you want all the posts in the Main Discussion board, do a search for those with a PID value of 1, and likewise to get posts off a thread. Look for a PID value of that thread.

It might sound complicated at first, but that's exactly what forums like this one do. >:D

Well, you can first crete a hash table that holds the values by doing /hmake 100 (A hash table with a size of 100. Then you assign token spaced to the id, pid, poster, and then the rest fo the message.

Give me a few minute,s i'll make up a demo

Another quick question... what's wrong with this?

Code:
 on *:TEXT:`SScrim:#WireScrim,#test:{
  if ($nick == %Player1 || $nick == %Player2 || $nick == %Player3 || $nick == %Player4 || $nick == %Player5) { /notice $nick You're already on the group for this scrim | halt }
  if (%Player1 == $null) { set $nick %Player1 | notice $nick You'll be in the roster of this scrim, stand by for ip/pw... | halt }
}

See if this is what you want. Before you run it, configure the frum headings at the top. I added a /forum.tree to show you how you can navigate the forum. Use /forum.setup to setup the first run. It will then save to forum.hsh every modification to the post. I'm going to work on a channel-driven version of the forum so users can use commands to post and nav the forums.

I kind of wanted it... not client side. Where just regular users typed commands in the channel to view. I'm sure I can try and work it out... i'll give it a shot.
and that script... that I made ... it doesn't work.
