If anyone is wonder what I've been working on since Christmas morning, wonder no more: For those of you with a Facebook account, head over to http://apps.facebook.com/originbrowser/ to check out the first milestone of my OriginBrowser project.

To get started, login using your Origin account details, and it'll set you right up.

So far it can browse the forums you have the permission to access (minus passworded ones—that'll be taken care of later), browse topics people have posted in, and display them as you would normally see Facebook posts. (The integration and permission system took forever!) I also implemented pagination so you don't have to suffer through 500-post topics in one load.

As of now, only three people have linked their accounts. The app will be more useful when more people link their accounts, so, everyone with a FB account, please do so.

Keep in mind the application isn't meant to replace Origin, but to supplement it. The next features I have in mind are notifications/topic subscriptions, topic posting/replying, member-referral page, etc.

Thanks, and post questions here ssmile.gif If something doesn't work, it would be helpful if you post your platform info (browser, OS, and their versions) and a detailed description of what's wrong.

Apologies everyone but I haven't been developing much on this application. (It still works, hopefully). Instead I've been busy with school, work, posting here of course, and another facebook app I'll announce when I've completed it.

If anyone wants to help out with the OriginBrowser and knows how to develop in PHP/MySQL, let me know and I can hook you up.

Thanks in advance.

Looking at Control in the Browser. Is it just me, or is the entire first page (apart from what's above the plot summary) italic? Is that something I did with the bbcode, or is that just a bbcode error? http://apps.facebook.com/originbrowser/node/17573

Well, first of all the app itself is broken because FB changed some things and I didn't update it. But the problem you're pointing out is actually your miscoding:

CODE
[i][center] By day, Jen Andersen is a shy, quiet bookworm. But by night, she’s a wild party animal more than willing to be with any man who wants her. When her step brother Galm finds videos of her on the Internet, he threatens to expose her if she does not obey his every command. But as she becomes more and more willing to submit to his volatile passion, a relationship forms….one as dark as the night they play in…one that will not be accepted if they were to be exposed…[/i][/center]


You need to properly nest things. Center must be OUTSIDE of styles.

Ah, shoot, I thought I did something wrong there. Thanks, Jingy, I'll edit that. riiight.gif

As for the app breaking, is that going to be a problem?
