MYBB runs on Prototype and Scriptaculous for effects. Its the equivalent of the jQuery library and the jQuery UI. Removing Prototype and swapping to jQuery is just not feasible - it would require a complete code rewrite.
- so that means finding/making some code that will run on MYBB - ie Prototype based
- is easily fixed - be less of a noob
- I found two neat plugins for Prototype/Scriptaculous - Prototype Overlay and Horinaja.
- Audentio Designs jSnippets. Its great - I can bundle up all my js and whack it onto leefish in one go - its not the size of the script that is the issue - its the HTTP requests. By using this concatenated code I can reduce requests immediately.
