I don’t even consider “sites” that only work on mobile apps to be “the internet”

That's awesome...

I think the gray parts of that should be shades of brown instead though.

Is there a way to customize that part of the colors?

I get that we're making the templates automatically so they'll be bearable to read or whatever, but that shit would get on my nerves if there was color that I couldn't change.

I get that the "sysop" can change the shit but can every other user have the same ability?

I'm not telling you it needs to be any different than it is, it's YOUR software... I'm just saying it's little stuff like that which would make it less enjoyable.
The whole page will be the profile owner's theme colors. That's just a static mockup.

It's so inspiring.

Will you be running a site with this software as an example of how it works, or for your own enjoyment?
I know you've said you wouldn't wanna run a forum again, but come on man!

My hosting and domain names expire in a few days, so I won't be running anything for awhile. I don't even know if I'll have this ready to demo in time.

Here it is with the theme applied.

If I can manage to get my stuff out of storage, I may run a site on my Raspberry Pi with a dynamic DNS redirector. Underground sites are kinda meant to be run on a home computer anyway.

One thing I liked about AOL was how the chatroom lists and file lists always had a "More" button to fetch more results. Nowadays, that kind of thing is usually done with the infinitely scrolling page that loads more items when you hit the bottom of the page. That's not quite as satisfying as pumping the "More" button and seeing more results squirt out though. I'll probably add that in a later version. For now, I went ahead and made a paginator class for the modules that will need one.
TBH I think endless scrolling is a fucking scourge.

I'm actually thinking about making the next version of this program a desktop peer-to-peer host and eliminating the Web presence" aspect of it altogether. I was working on an old school BBS in PHP last summer and had considered "including a Web interface at the time. Now I'm seeing how the two programs could be merged into a single application similar to PowWow.

We really need software to fill that niche. BitTorrent isn't really "community" oriented. WinMX doesn't have bulletin boards like PowWow had, and the PM system doesn't have the usual instant messenger interface most people are familiar with.

The new program would be written in PHP-GTK, which I've used in the past, so the same software would work identically on Windows, Mac, or Linux. It would be as easy to modify for sysops who know PHP as it would be if it were a normal website.
