Re: phpBB 3.2.1 RC1 released

The only non-bc change in Metadata Mgr is the move of the output_metadata_to_template function to acp_extension, where it belongs. And yes, this affects your "upload" extension. Interestingly, this is your change, javiexin: https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/pull/4698. Yes, it is not backwards-compatib...

Re: phpBB 3.2.1 RC1 released

I think we overlooked the event already being part of a previous release and therefore didn't object to the renaming. That is something that can be undone to prevent potential issues for extension authors. No, I don't think we overlooked this: the proposal for this change was done well before 3.2.0...

If you find any other non-bc compatible change, it is unintended, and should be fixed.

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 BBC...

This seems to me like a bug in dealing with avatars in notifications. Probably related to https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/pull/4808

Re: Extensionalize phpBB

There is one issue that would be problematical with the current update/upgrade procedure and that is that is that extensions that need updating would need to de disabled first and then re-enabled. Only those that have new migrations, or very special cases of changes in ext.php . Otherwise, it is no...

Re: New contacts (Telegram), Customize contacts from ACP idea.

Ok, further investigation on the topic. The way icons for contact profile fields are treated is not easy to mimic, as all images are embedded in a single file, and "indexed" for a position by strict naming conventions. To hack this, you would need to: Create the custom profile field (usually as type...

Re: Extensionalize phpBB

While I do understand your concerns, I think that they highly influenced by your last statement: And the extensions team is already understaffed and overwhelmed with all of its current extensions duties. Let's not try to be influenced by the current status of the teams, and try to think positively, ...

Re: New contacts (Telegram), Customize contacts from ACP idea.

Hello Raheem, You may define new "contact" fields in the core phpbb, no need for anything else. However, for what I have been able to see, the ICON used to present the contact is HARDCODED, and therefore not so easy to include such a new icon on new contact fields (at the very least, would require v...

Re: Extensionalize phpBB

I understand most of the objections, but I really see more benefits down the line. First of all, about the work, and maintenance effort, I think it should not be more than it is now. I am not proposing to ADD major functionality, but to SEPARATE that functionality into manageable chunks. There will ...
