Yep, basically the posts are ordered by ID in the db. THey are just associated to specific topics and have a timestamp on them. You should not have any issue, although listing topics from the most recently posted on to the oldest can take a bit more processing power (although it's not that bad if you just try to fetch topics that had the last 200 posts in or so).

For now i just use something where id > id_msg with a limit of 10 sorted ascending.

Anyway i've been working on it for the last few days. I now have a fancy loading animation implemented, and a basic bbcode parser.
It supports most tags like bold, italic, underline, strike, align (though not really tested), links (clickable), code (which is just a <blockquote >), quote, tt, sub, sup, color, font size, youtube links become plain links etc. I'm still working on the images. Though some tags like tables and list are not going to be supported since i use Html.fromHtml which has a very limited tag set. though it's possible to add tags, but i'll have to get more familiar with the "Spanned" class. I also want to implement smileys (with a :3= ofcourse). Is there a full list of all the smileys somewhere? Also are these copyrighted (probably not) since i think i'm going to pre-download them and put it in the projects assets to save on downloads / cache?

EDIT: it looks like the <blockquote > (without the space) tag messes with the forum layout. The staff might want to look at this since maybe more tags work and this can lead to some exploits

Awesome. Now that you mention tag support, we plan to use an [hide] tag at one point so it might be wise to consider supporting it in the future if we ever add it. Ideally, though, for notifications that appears in Android status bar, you should make the text so that it's stripped from all its bbcode/formating, so it won't look weird.

As for the smileys, although they are from various forums I ran, they are mostly based on PhpBB/Invisionboard/SMF or are literally from those softwares, so I'm unsure if using them in a downloadable app would be a good idea. There is no list sadly.

Also by <blockquote >  do you mean the quote bbcode tag? @Streetwalrus and @Juju might want to look into this, but it could be a SMF bug. EDIT: Nvm I see what you mean O.O

EDIT: Actually it seems like a forum feature that we have enabled:

QuoteThis will allow the posting of some basic HTML tags:
<b>, <u>, <i>, <s>, <em>, <ins>, <del>
<a href="">
<img src="" alt="" />
<br />, <hr />
<pre>, <blockquote>


Close window

We could disable it but I think this will prevent admins from using any HTML on the forums.

I might just send a push notification like "post on topic Re: the game" or something. Also the smileys are in walrusirc too as files, so i think i should be okay with downloading them. It go see if there's something on that.

Also i have been working on image support lately. Gif support is a real bitch <_<. I found some piece of code online that's supposed to be able to decode gifs but it doesn't seem to work. I probably have to make my own thing for it <_<

Cumred, there are publicly available, free and even commercially usable smiley packs. So why don't you use such?
Or use these (they're BSD licenced): http://dl.muessigb.net/Images/smileys.zip

I won't do posting, because i don't trust myself with accounts :P (i'm bound to screw something up, though there probably is a phppass android thing)

Also i might drop GIF support for now since it doesn't really work :(. I will try to add it after the school project part is done :)

I think that just as long as we can be notified when there are new posts and that the app easily allows you to open the browser to access the post on the website then it should be enough to be good. :)

Maybe have it like the navigation bar on CW website? For a placeholder you could just use one of the following:
