How can it be to have hardcoded strings?

Hi,

I really do NOT understand how a developer, or rather somebody who beliefs he's a developer, can implement hardcoded strings in its code or templates like domain names etc. Select image: ocf_emoticons/constipated

That's really absolutely crazy! Select image: ocf_emoticons/lol

Crazy greetings

Like what?


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I do not understand how a human, or rather someone who believes he's human, can make a statement like that without supporting evidence? hehe

He he. Well the W3C DTD URLs, and similar things are hard-coded because those obviously are static and assumed standards. But I couldn't think what else. Unless he was looking in the cache folder, of which compiled stuff goes.

It's rather humorous to juxtapose the initial post by an unknown against the appreciation of Scott Liewehr, a known entity in the world of CMSes.

If rblock has a legitimate complaint, then he should come back here and identify the issue. If it exists, I suspect Chris would fix it right away. Otherwise, rblock owes Chris an a big-time apology for his remarks.
