      Changelog
      ---------
      - improved the user information page.
      - improved the story submission page.
      - fixed comments score bug: '.00' --> 'x.00'
      - tried fixing the calendar wrapping - UnConeD, is it fixed now?
      - provided a link back to the submission queue after having voted
        for a story.
      - fixed comment subject bug (and security flaw) by replacing
        quotes by ".
      - updated theme 'zaphod': fixed 2 bugs.
      - updated theme 'marvin': fixed 1 bug and improved the layout so
        things wrap (hopefully) better in Windows.
      - comments have by default no subject pre-set - if no subject is
        provided, the user is warned and when a comment eventually got
        submitted without a subject, a subject is composed using the x
        first characters of the comment's body.
      - improved comments on submit.php
      - corrected a typo in the FAQ.
      
      UnConeD
      -------
      - replace 'article.php' by 'discussion.php'
      - comment() still uses old references to account.php: the
        parameters you supply to account.php does no longer hold.
        You have to update those links to the new syntax.
      - commentcontrol() is outdated - copy paste the one of
        theme 'marvin' and adjust it to your likings.

      Over the last 2 days I redid and reorganized an afwul lot of code and
      made quite a lot of additions.   The most remarkable addition is the
      diary server, which I slapped together in less then 40 minutes.   Most
      of the other changes are however `unvisible' for the user but add much
      value to a better maintainability from a developer's objective.  Like
      always, I fixed quite a number of small bugs that creeped into the code
      so we should have a bigger, better and more stable drop.org.
      
      Unfortunatly, some theme update _are_ required:
      
      
      REQUIRED THEME UPDATES:
      =======================
      
      * use format_username() where usernames are used
      * use format_date() where timestamps/dates are used
      * use format_email() where e-mail addresses are displayed
      * use format_url() where url are displayed
      * replace 'formatTimestamp' with format_date
      * replace 'morelink_*' with 'display_morelink'
      
      [most of these functions are in function.inc or template.inc]
      
      ___PLEASE___ (<- this should get your attention ;) update your themes
      as soon as possible - it only takes 30 min. to get in sync with the
      other themes.  Don't start whining about the fact you don't know what
      to change ... either eat the source cookie, or ask me to elaborate on
      a few changes.  Just let me know what's puzzling you and I'll try to
      help you out!
      
      
      TODO LIST FOR NEXT WEEK
      =======================
      * Add checks for max. text length in textarea's?  Is there an HMTL
        attribute for this or ...?
      * Comment moderation + mojo
      * Edit/admin user accounts: block, delete, change permissions, ...
      * E-mail password, change password, change e-mail address -> extra
        checks and routines to validate such `special' changes.
      * Input checking - input filter: bad words, html tags, ...

      A really BIG, BIG UPDATE, after two straight days of nothing but code
      and sleep, new stuff is finally in drop.org.  This is a quite large
      and wide-ranging update, which affects almost all of the system files
      in one way or another.  I fixed quite a lot of bugs and added quite a
      lot of new features, mostly administrative tools as these were really
      lacking.  It's far from finished but it's a start ...

      Updates:
      --------
      
      * URI/URL enhancements to make the URLs more comprehensive and shorter.
      * Fixed a bug in submit.php that slipped in during the latest commit.
      * Changed a few tidbits on the calendar.
      * Fixed a bug in most themes:
          $tid       --> $cid
          COUNT(tid) --> COUNT(cid)
        Updated most themes except for UnConeD's.
      * Fixed a handful of problems with Jeroen's theme.  However, Jeroen's
        theme is still not working yet - some features are completly missing,
        making the theme not very useful ...
      
      Any known bugs left?  If not, I'll head on tonight and add some new
      features.  I'll probably add basic admin tools to edit articles and
      such.  Once done, we can start on the comment moderation.

      * Integrated the database abstraction layer into the account pages.  One
        reason for doing so is because the database abstraction layer provides
        build-in error checking and a debug mode for easy development.

      Here we go again with a rather large commit:

       * user.class.php: fixed a typical quote-bug in $user->rehash().

       * functions.inc: improved several functions.
       * account.php: fixed major bug in showUser().
       * account.php: added some extra words to the human-readable
                      password-generator(tm).
       * account.php: boxed ALL functions! Fieuw!
       * submit.php: add some general information and guidlines on how to
                     post submissions.
       * config.inc: re-thought the categories to be more generic.
       * submission.php: minor changes
       * search.pph: fixed minor bug with the author's names.

      Hoeray!  I have a first core version of submission moderation up and
      running.  This means people can submit stories, and moderators can
      moderate stories.  When a submission reaches a certain positive
      threshold (currently set to 2) the submission becomes a story and up
      it goes.   If a submission reaches a certain negative threshold
      (currently set to -2) the submission is dumped.
      
      The fact this is all done by our visitors (without our intervention)
      makes it truly spiffy imho.  The website can live a life on it's own,
      fed by the visitors.
      
      Beware, a lot of work need to be done though ... it's just a first
      basic implementation with the core functionality.  There are quite
      a lot of things that I'll need to change, extend and improve.  But
      comments, suggestions and ideas are - as always - welcomed.
      
      Please read this log message carefully!  It features quite a lot of
      important information.
      
      To test the moderation, log in, select theme 'Dries' (the other themes
      need a small update) and head by clicking the one and only 'submission
      moderation' link.  Don't be afraid to submit lame/funny/useless
      stories for testing purpose ... as soon we go public, we'll wipe out
      the story database.  ;-)
      
      
      WHAT'S NEW?
      -----------
      * Added 2 new operations to user.class.php to set and retrieve the
        user's "history".  Very evil but required to avoid people voting
        twice.
      * Moved dbsave() from account.php to functions.php.  In addition, I
        added a new function to user.class.php called `save()' that ...
        well, saves the object back to the database.  It's (IMHO) a better
        approach compared to dbsave(): it keeps things organized. ;-)
      
      
      BUGFIXES:
      ---------
      * Fixed a (heavy) memory leak in the constructor of user.class.php:
        mysql_fetch_array() returns an _associative_ array which made the
        constructor `pollute' the object with a lot of useless variables.
      * Fixed the slash-problem on the account pages. :-)
      * Fixed UnConeD's theme glitch, alas the warning.
      * Fixed the e-mail address not showing in the confirmation email
        (upon registration).
      * Fixed the typical quote and backslash problems in submit.php.
      * submit.php now uses the database abstraction layer.
      
      IMPORTANT:
      ----------
      * You can check the new submission system at:
          http://beta.drop.org/submission.php
        or by following the `submission moderation' link from my theme.
      * UnConeD, Jeroen: you'll need to update your themes to take
        advantage of the new function: displayAccount().  This function
        will display the `submission moderation' link when a user is
        logged on.
      * Natrak: you might want to apply the patches in user.class.php
        on the other sites using the same user-system.

       * Various small changes to account.php including a SQL table movement:
         'testusers' -> 'users'.  As a result, user.class.php and article.php

      IMPORTANT PATCH:
      ----------------
      
      * Altered the theming system to follow the naming convention of class files.
        theme.class has been renamed to theme.class.php!
      * I fixed the default theme and my own theme, but none of the others themes
        for your convenience...  This means *you* have to rename your theme on CVS
        by (a) removing it from CVS and (b) adding it back with a its new name:
        'theme.class.php'.
          For the clueless:
          mv theme.class theme.class.php
          cvs remove theme.class
          cvs add theme.class.php
          cvs commit theme.class.php
      * Sorry for breaking things ... try to fix it asap and everything will be
        OK. ;)

      Bugfixes:
      ---------
      * Fixed a few bugs in account.php - saves Natrak some time.
        I only fixed the obvious, very small bugs reported today.
      
      Enhancements:
      -------------
      * Made the default theme a setting in config.inc.  You can now easily
        change the default theme.  It's a much nicer approach with more
        flexibility.  When working on your theme, you set your theme to be the
        default theme.  In addition, with a small scripting tric in config.inc
        we could automatically set the default theme to the most popular theme
        (according to the user table), or we could periodically cycle (round
        robin) through all themes: say every week a new default theme.  I truly
        think that's better. :-)
      * Adjusted config.inc, theme.inc and account.php in order to do so.
      * I have some remarks with regards to config.inc, but I think I'll share
        those later in a seperate mail.
