Re: [RFC] Login with email

we hit a brick wall because someone thinks this is too much work or whatever. I'd like you to take a moment to ask yourself why you don't implement this feature, since you clearly want it. Even if you don't know PHP, it isn't a difficult language to learn. Could it be because it is too much work? A...

PHPBB3-15444 - Merge duplicate BBCodes via a migration

Context: in 3.1, it was possible to create two BBCodes using the same name; One without an attribute and the other with. This was presumably to handle polymorphic BBCodes such as [url] or [quote] . In 3.2.1, it is still possible to create two BBCodes in the ACP but only one of them will effectively...

Re: Support for Emojis

Rawgit could work. jsDelivr is an option, too. Does anybody here know about free CDNs?

Re: Support for Emojis

The issue with Noto is that the gradients make them look mushy at low resolution. Try resizing them to 18 × 18, the size of emoji here. I'm waiting for the SVGs to become available to see if it's much better than the resized PNGs.

Re: Support for Emojis

I've got to say that while I don't think Emojione is evil for changing their business model, the sudden change is a huge pain in my ass. Mozilla's emoji are not actively maintained. As far as I know, the only two open source emoji sets being actively maintained are Twitter's Twemoji and Google's Not...

Re: BBcodes

That's incorrect. BBCode definitions and default templates are stored in PHP files and style templates in pseudo-HTML files but they could just as well be stored in the database like any other BBCode.

Re: BBcodes

If you add too many BBCodes by default then you'll have another group of users asking for a way to delete them. There's no winning this. The correct way to deal with it is to treat the default BBCodes the same way as custom BBCodes and add an option to add more BBCodes from a list of predefined BBCo...

Re: BBcodes

Templating is only half of it. Users want to modify their behaviour via the ACP.

Also you don't lose anything by having default templates in the ACP and per-style templates in bbcode.html.

Re: BBcodes

The BBCode definitions are stored in the PHP sources but they are no different from custom BBCodes and it would be possible to store them in the database to make them editable. If anyone wants to do it, here are the relevant sections: (you'd need to create a migration too) https://github.com/phpbb/p...

Re: [RFC] Integrate s9e\TextFormatter

That's a software crash, nothing we can do about it. Try linking PHP against a more recent version of PCRE and be sure to report the error with a good trace/dump at PHP's bug tracker.
