Re: Download 'Olympus' Demo ?!

Okay, but seriously, what about everyone else? :? They will do exactly as they have done for years - fake it by using another similar font if they cannot afford to purchase it. This is nothing new to the styling community. For example, for years now people have faked Triplex Bold (the commercial fo...

Re: Auto add rank by usergroup

This is already possible, Set a rank to the usergroup ACP -> Manage Groups -> Settings, then under "Group Rank" select the rank you wish those members to have, then click submit. Then, when adding a member to a group (ACP -> Manage Groups -> Members) check the "Set as default group:" to "Yes" before...

Re: suggestion to developers: please release beta-6

there are still many bugs, Firefox has over 10,000 bugs, some so old that they have been there since before the browser was even called Firefox. If every bug were to be fixed before RC it would probably still be in beta today years later. Theres bugs, and then theres bugs . The phpBB dev team knows...

Re: For the phpbb team

I'm making a blog system based on some of the phpbb's code and i plan to make it opensource... This is not sufficient, your script must also be released under the GPL as well. You don't need a team member to answer you, you didn't even need to ask ;) (although its usually nice etiquette that you di...

Re: phpbb Donation?

nope there is no donation as such except if you buy Bertie Bear for example or have a look at one of the annoncements SHS(i think) made over at The team makes 0 profit off those bears, they are sold at manufacture price. If so what is the best way to donate and ensure that it will be used...

They can add their requests for those new ideas when the feature request tracker is re-opened for 3.2 (or 3.4, as 3.2's feature list is already mostly set).

Re: template engine thoughts

Bassul you have not listed any solid evidence as to why switching to Smarty would be better. Those 'advantages' you listed on your earlier front page post of Smarty are not advantages over phpBB's current system at all, they are merely neutral statements which hold no weight to either side. I probab...

Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

When 3.0 is released, if only one person downloads it, installs it and runs it, and is happy with it then phpBB3.0 is a success imo. Thankfully unlike other bbs teams, phpBB does not have to base its success on number of users, number of subscribers, total income or profit generated. This is the bea...

Re: Is it safe to use phpBB?

jjeffers>> There are no known security issues with phpBB 2.0.11 - the site was not compromised via phpBB, but via a vulnerability in another script which has nothing to do with the phpBB forum software. What I believe happened was that someone else on your server was using a pre-2.0.11 ver...

Re: New Version Security

There will be more releases in the 2.0.x line if any security issues arise or as necessary - thus if you are happy with the 2.0.x feature set, you do not have to upgrade, there is no need to if that is the case. Security in both the 3.0.x and 2.0.x lines will remain an important issue, and the relea...
