Interesting idea, sjaq. Out of curiosity, what precisely would you be looking for in a 'plugin system' as, in my eyes, that term could cover a variety of things and I'm not sure my idea of a plugin meets your idea of one! That goes out to everyone, what is a plugin system to you?
A plugin system for me is a system that can modify behavior of a script without messing with the core source code, it just "plugs in"
An example, let's say I have a Routing class that matches url's with classes and functions. Then I would like to be able to make a plugin that does something before the routing class and after, to modify the results of that class.
Thanks for all the input guys, we've been a little lazy over the holidays but I'm sure things will pick up again in the new year. I for one will be more active then. We've got plenty of ideas now, but we could always use more :)
Look forward to seeing the new articles :)
Esp that one on vB if you get to finish it off

A tutorial on how to use output control functions. They're generally used to rectify the session and header errors by programmers. I had seen that they're more powerful than that, a tutorial would be nice.

I remember a post from the past day or 2 where someone mentioned that they where going to write just such a tutorial Chase. Unfortunately, I've just spent the past 10 minutes looking in every forum and can't find it :/
I'm fairly certain I didn't imagine the post but if a tutorial doesn't appear in the next few weeks I'll add it to my list
Ignore this post, I'm just posting this list (compilied list of all the suggestions in this thread so far) here so I know where it is. I have a nasty habbit of loosing files when I save them to my laptop
