    PHP.net User Contributed Notes?

    does anybody have any ideas why User Contributed Notes has disappeared from Manual on php.net?

    I've checked other manual pages, but even those I know they have at least a couple of notes now show nothing.

    I'm going to bet that they will bring them back. PHP.net was offline for several hours (maybe even longer) a few days ago -- perhaps they're performing an upgrade or something; but hopefully they'll get the user comments back up.

    I highly doubt they'll delete them -- those were/are more helpful than the manual itself!

    I totally agree with you, it's a valuable resource for all PHP programmers.
    I've noticed this when I was looking for an user comment about init_set() functionality in Windows system, now I guess I have to wait

    I've checked the site, it's online, but comments section hasn't changed.

    There must be some sort of developments going on at the back end. The bugs database was down for a while too.

    I can't substantiate this, but I think I read a couple of months ago that they were in the process of removing he user contributed notes which is a real shame.

    Apparently, people were using them to ask questions and not just provide good notes. It was turning into a bit of a forum.
