 I just learned how to upload a video to YouTube, so where do I sign up?

 If you want to work long hours in front of a computer for minimal pay, no pension plan, no benefits, but they'll tell you how this will be a great experience for you despite the fact when you divide up the pay and hours you work to find out you're basically earning minimum wage.

 Maybe the new developer can finally make external links open in a new tab/window?
  • + 11
 Who cares about that, just right click em. Now deleting photos or comments we posted eyyyyy.
  • + 9
 For both accessibility and usability reasons, opening new windows from links is generally frowned upon and is in fact discouraged in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 with some clear exceptions. See more at www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/G200.html

This behaviour may be something that you in particular want, but that same function will present serious challenges for other people.

 Just hold down Ctrl when clicking the link. gdharries already linked to the explaination Smile

 target=_blank !!!!

 Is there a good reason to not set external links to target=_blank? Why would you have people navigating away from your site to someone elses?

 @SkipSkovhugger: I learned something new.. Thanks

 @Three6ty: or click the scroll wheel when you are hovering over the link!

 Submitting my PFR (Pinkbike Feature Request) here for the new developer: Open buy/sell pictures in an isolated window so I don't have to hit my BACK button 15 times to get back to the main posting.
  • + 3
 buy & sell needs a little love, especially the search.
The pictures could be solved by not do a full page refresh on each pic, I never understood why it wasn't a single photo gallery per posting...
  • + 6
 And full buy sell functionality on mobile would be nice

 There's a better way to handle that, but I've had the same problem.

 Perl code? Possible SQL Injection exploits?

I'll stick to riding my bike...

 It is clearly PHP code from TrailForks ... that site works well so I expect they already are doing all the OWASP recommended mitigations. That being said, if not using Nodejs, I'd rather code a back end in Python than PHP.
  • + 1
 @JackSB: ewww php. Go node or go home
  • + 8
 @JackSB: String concatenated sql queries instead of prepared statements. Yeah, probably not doing all the OWASP mitigations. Just because it works doesn't mean anything with regards to security. That's the mentality that has lead to the absolute free for all of vulnerabilities in production software.
  • + 4
 @bpblack: I was looking for exactly the same thing. It looks like the visible concats are from a row retrieved from the DB. Definitely brave of them to post actual code, knowing that there are dweebs that ride MTBs that are going to pick it apart.
  • + 26
 WTF language are you speaking?
  • + 8
 Its sad that we all cringe when we hear php, but esp. after php 7 its actually a pretty good server side language. Nodejs, while getting better, lives on 90% hype. The stuggle php has is that its used in garbage platforms like Drupal, Magento (shudder), and Wordpress. A well built backend in Yii or Laravel will outperform any trendy microarchitecture in Nodejs and be a ton easier to maintain, no matter how many trendy npm packages you throw at it.

Just good luck getting a developer to work in php, let alone even admit that they know it.
  • + 6
 OWASP referenced on PinkBike? My worlds are colliding. Stop this madness!
  • + 1
 @JackSB: right, but the problem there is that assumes the DB itself isn't compromised. If there's SQLi elsewhere, there's no guarantee that data from the db is safe.
  • + 2
 @canadaka: Ah, I'm being the stereotypical infosec jerk. I'm jaded, it's the end of the week, and I'm being a security scold based on a snippet. My bad. Appsec is hard, and scolding doesn't win over any devs, I know. Keep on validating that potentially user controlled data.

 @Layman: Right!? The last time this happened was when Nicky V (Berkel) left LinusTechTips for Pinkbike.

 @hamncheez:
"A well built backend in Yii or Laravel will outperform any trendy microarchitecture in Nodejs and be a ton easier to maintain, no matter how many trendy npm packages you throw at it. "

Absolutely disagree, 12 years of php here, 4 in nodejs, and meteor rocks the socks off of yii / laravel.

"Just good luck getting a developer to work in php, let alone even admit that they know it."

Here we can can agree 100%. Isomorphic javascript / nosql is simply undebatably the future, the people arguing against this are just unwilling to adapt to the change it will require.

@dro-cfr: Gotta pay for the bike nerddom somehow Wink
  • + 0
 @probablyoutriding: Nosql is the future? Meteor rocks socks? Both these are seeing a plateau or even decline in use. Effing postgres used with a single table outperforms mongodb. Meteor is dead.

What I'm seeing the greatest trend is toward ORM-free architectures that simply wrap graphql implementations, like monsterjs. Oh, and everything must be reactjs now, until they realize that it can hurt SEO and freaks out the marketing department, and they end up rendering it all server side.

 Normal Unicorns don't know that they're Unicorns though, they're pretty chill. Full stack developers on the other hand are like all the bad attitude from 1986 Motley Crue minus the party and cool.

 If that picture is legit PB code you need to not do it like that. Your website is in danger of standing on a syringe full of malicious SQL.
