What about the REST of the problems? Are we just going to pretend that they don't exist?

Are you KIDDING? Do you even READ your own threads here?
What part of the bugs pointed out in that thread do you not understand?
There are so many bugs that it's not even funny, INCLUDING the get_vars garbage thrown out by your company.

Come on now, show a LITTLE bit of professionalism here, please!

I understand you now. The issue with get_var() function is not a bug, the files might not uploaded correctly. I have replied to the client via the helpdesk because he also submitted a ticket.

No, it's a bug. You have functions that are commonly named (such as get_var) and conflict with other functions. You need to make SURE that your functions do not conflict with others.

Just because you say it's not a bug doesn't make it not a bug. Just because YOU want to do things one way, and overwrite major function names doesn't mean it's RIGHT!

I agree with you that MF's functions should not named like phpBB's functions. the get_var() function was designed to use for MF admin area, it was not intended to use for other section. But for some reason, we have to use it. We will rename it for the next release to avoid potential issues. Thanks.
