And my first post was …

My post on this forum thread was my first one on apparently.

It was 8 years ago and WordPress didn’t have a plugin system and wouldn’t have until later. I had integrated Smarty into the b2++ project, with a nifty versioned template editor and even looked at doing the same with WordPress. Smarty had a plugin system that could be used in theory but nothing came of it.

What was your first post on the forum? Look in your profile to find out!

  1. It appears that mine was a question which I then answered myself. But it might not have been – Matt upgraded… changed .. from I think punBB to bbPress at one point and lots of posts were lost. Not tons but a fair number. So it could have been another.

  2. My first post was about 6 years ago about the “UTW Re-Tag Posts Extention” (yup, that’s how it was spelled and remember the old UTW extension?).

    @Donncha – I read your original forum post you linked to as well as your blog post about “Smarty” but I just have to know… what version of Linux had you “just re-installed” on your new hard drive back then? Okay, it’s off topic but like I said…I gotta know. šŸ™‚

  3. LOL, figured out my first post was 6 years ago and has been answered by Moshu. Where did he disappear? Just realized there are a few names I haven’t seen around WP in a while…
