About : RA BBS
update... July 05, 2006
RA BBS was developed by myself. :) It began a few years ago when
I started out learning the how-to of CGI programming with Perl,
and felt the need to put a BBS for my own website (following my
own Guestbook), without the ad banners and the potential of remote
server crash/buyout/disappearance. The script grows and improves
upon itself as I learn the language, and now it's boasting as many
features as most (free) BBS you can find anywhere on the Internet
(well, save a few).
A Bulletin Board / Forum script written in Perl, as a CGI application
accessed like a webpage on the Internet.
See The Irregular Winds BBS as
- Two modes of 'browse'
view (Table of Contents, Summary of all recent postings)
- Postings can be edited,
safely with the protection of a user-entered password individual
to each posting.
- Robust Search function.
- Poster name and E-mail
remembered by cookie.
- Maintains multiple
- Complete customization
of page design specific to each forum.
- Administrator mode
allows postings to be deleted.
- Enable IP bans, posting bans by words.
- Great technical support
by a nice guy.
Available for FREE! ;)
There is no user registration or logins (for the download, and for
the script's own).
(new! as of July 05 06)
If you want to implement RA BBS script on your website, make
sure your hosting company gives you CGI script availability
(having a cgi-bin/ or cgi/ directory is a good indicator),
as well as allows you to use custom CGI scripts. Some companies
do make a distinction, and only allows their own scripts on the
server, due to fear of malicious scripts.
Feel free to contact me for any questions regarding this BBS. :)
