bbps bookmark manager

This blog shows news about the bbps project. bbps is a simple and small PHP application to store bookmarks on a server. It is different in that bookmarks are not stored in folders, but each bookmark can be assigned to an indefinite number of categories.

Lay-out bug in IE fixed

Thanks to Ron Ridley, the bug which made bbps show up in a weird way in Internet Explorer has been fixed. We received a patch from Ron providing code to work around some anomaly in the IE rendering engine which b0rked our lay-out. Cheers Ron!

Of course anyone is welcome to follow Ron's example in fixing bugs in bbps! Have fun doing so! We're looking forward to receive more patches :-)

You can expect the patch in our cvs repository very soon for those of you who are anxious to try.

Edit: I decided to check out the patch in a Windows install I did for this purpose in QEMU - which is a marvellous piece of programming by the way - and in my humble installation, the patch works flawlessly. We can finally say again that bbps works in IE without hickups :)

I just installed 0.7 under Apache 2.0.54 and PHP 4.3.11 on a Gentoo box and I'm impressed. You've managed to do what I'm looking for (almost) and bbps has a lot of promise.

The layout for me under IE seems to be borked (atill?). I don't use IE, so this isn't a big deal (for me). I've also run into an interface bug under Firefox -- clicking the [a-i][j-r][s-z] links seems to do nothing. I tried the CVS from today, but that seems to ignore my stylesheet and has massive layout problems under Firefox.

All in all, great work and thanks for this contribution to the open source community!

Thanks for trying out our 'product' :)

The IE layout is borked in 0.7, but it works for me in current CVS. The layout problems you mention in Firefox are new to me, could you please explain or file a bug in our sf.net site?

I'll look into the [a-i] problem too, but filing a bug would be a great help here too.

I hope you read this, I only saw your comment today and don't have your mailaddress... Thanks again!

Layout bug is still there. I checked in IE 6.0.2800.1106.

I am also having the problem of having no rating.

Maybe it's just my the tables in MySQL. Must have installed it all wrong.
