TetraBB PRO Documentation
TetraBB PRO is an extension for Tetra-WebBBS forum software. It's designed to work 'on top' of Tetra-WebBBS and enhance it's functionality, features and flexibility in usage. However, a few requirements must be met to get TetraBB PRO working on a server:
- Working default installation of Tetra-WebBBS
Installing TetraBB PRO "on top" of Tetra-WebBBS obviously requires the basic version installed in a working condition AND according to the defaults/standards described in the documentation.
Compatibility table TetraBB PRO version requires Tetra-WebBBS 0.1x (released 2008) 0.540 (developmental version) 0.20 (released 2009) 6.1x
The PRO extension makes use of special features provided by the Berkeley Database.
Thus the alternate DBM databases supported by Tetra-WebBBS and prior WebBBS versions can't be used by TetraBB PRO.
Fortunately this should not be any problem as the Berkeley Database and DB_File are supposed to be available on all Linux or other *nix servers. On Windows servers the underlying database most likely is available as well, only DB_File may need to be installed. - But that's not a biggie and recommend anyway ever since.
In the long run the forums will become a fully templated system for even more flexible customization. The PRO extension is based on templates from the beginning.
The templating system is based on a common framework where HTML::Template is it's base Perl module.
