Hmm If it wasn't for I've just started to develop my own forums a couple of weeks ago I would have helped out.
And as the other said something of the minusses in your code, then I would recommed you to either use a database access component or a database actraction layer to handle different database systems which makes your software more portable ;)
-The cookie was formatted as "username|pass|id|rank" unencrypted
-All the posts where assigned to an array in a loop, then displayed in another
-The mysql didnt use auto_increment, I assigned the ID based off of the number of rows in the database. I just didnt delete anything to keep it working.
I would show you the version still on the web, but its been hacked over and is now unusable.
//assign the nessesary data $all_resp_data = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM board_response_tbl WHERE resp_question_id = '$topic_id' AND resp_response_active = '1' ORDER BY resp_response_id ASC"); $resp_count = mysql_num_rows($all_resp_data);
$all_question_data = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM board_question_tbl WHERE ques_question_id = '$topic_id'"); $topic_origin_post2 = mysql_result($all_question_data,'0',"ques_question_txt"); $allow_replys = mysql_result($all_question_data,'0',"ques_allow_responses"); $topic_origin_post = nl2br($topic_origin_post2);
$user_posts = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM board_response_tbl WHERE resp_response_by = 'login_id'"); $user_post_count = mysql_num_rows($user_posts);
//nav data $nav_forum = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM board_forum_tbl WHERE forum_id = '$id'"); $nav_forum_name = mysql_result($nav_forum,'0',"forum_name");
$nav_topic = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM board_question_tbl WHERE ques_question_ID = '$topic_id'"); $nav_topic_name = mysql_result($nav_topic,'0',"ques_question_name");
Right, because they couldn't possibly have stolen it from him---or even gotten it from the same designer. Designers have been known to relicense works if they were generic instead of branded. And that is not branded. Try contacting the project's webmaster and asking before jumping to conclusions, Matt.
That said, Khile, there is a good bit of risk for having a lookalike forum. You should check with your designer and make certain that it is a lookalike and not a rip. Stress that he has to have created all the graphics himself, or have used them with permission. I'd point to that package too, to make him sweat and hopefully be honest--if he was deceitful in the first place. If it is merely a lookalike, I'd make a forum post here and there announcing this and quoting your designer for safety.

ok you caught me I have taken over development of ekinboard bought a few months back and have invested a lot of time into this as far as design goes I had that made by the origanal skiner of ekinboard for $ 200 I now see I have been ripped off to whitch he has not responded to any email.
Also ekinboard is now closed as jew to its bad reputation I thought best to start a fresh so to speak and renamed board witch was part of sale agreement. That's why code will look simulate but if you look mine is far moreadvanced noe with intire re-writes of files
It doesn't mean anything, you just don't seem like the sort of person who would spend a couple of thousand dollars buying the rights to some forum software with the intention of improving and selling/releasing it
But anyway, it's none of my concern or business so good luck with Aeonboard
