Now that the school semester is over and I'm on vacation from work, I've looked again into the component and I will separate the component into a main area and several addons since it will be easier to maintain and debug. Here's the conclusion I've reached so far:
Main component: XBT Tracker frontend
Addons: - Donations - Licenses - Countries - Comments - Peer ban - IP ban - Download/Upload multiplier - Peer speed
The core component will work without any of the addons enabled, thus making it easier to test.
I will also change the core code that is "taking care" of the uploaded torrents since the current code is old and buggy. I will use an external php class thus making the code more independent.
I'm also looking at the possibility to separate the user information from the Joomla core #__users table to prevent problems with other components and future updates.
In the next days I will re-read all the forum requests and will put a list of what will be developed and what will not be. If you have any request, it's the right time to write a post about it. If you found any more bugs that aren't reported, I appreciate that you report them. If you want to keep any information private, please send me an email (visigod_AT_visigod_DOT_com) with the bug.
Long time no update
It's been a while since I've updated the site. I'm now finishing my semester (finally) and I will resume the coding on the frontend. I will also update the site tutorials with the latest component images, xbt tracker installation and other goodies I find interesting.
I've just released a new version (188.8.131.52) with the following changes:
Fixed backend menu descriptions
Fixed user flag on "User Panel" if no country was defined (using default country)
Fixed detection of image or text on the torrent category. Works on Torrent List and Tracker Statistics
Fixed bug where torrent file wasn't deleted when torrent was removed from site
Added the first release to support the auto-update system
New version available
I've released a new version that should work without any problems with Joomla 2.5. Please download it and test it and report any bugs that you find in the forums.
This new version also supports guest downloads/uploads. I'll update the documentation as soon as possible but for now the quick way to do it is to make a new user in Joomla and define it as the guest user in the component parameters.
