Re: Please improve function and global var namespacing

:roll: I have "actually looked at the latest code". My WP-phpBB bridge will be released after I test it with the released version of 3.1 (it works with RC6). It must do core edits until the function/variable conflicts are resolved and the necessary hooks have been added to the core (the latter is no...

Re: Replace image buttons with css

Please check your code in different browsers on multiple operating systems. Why? phpBB has shown no interest in platform-consistent fonts. The current product has platform-consistent font issues that are orders of magnitude worse than the miniscule issues of a few buttons. The product in developmen...

Re: Replace image buttons with css

Only question is, will that look good everywhere else (IE 8/9/10, Google Crome, opera etc)? If the linear-gradient CSS used in the current text buttons was used in my example, then it would have the same compatibility as the current text buttons. The lone issue is the font. These buttons require a ...

Re: Replace image buttons with css

I did this for a client. Here's a sample using the default Prosilver background for the buttons. The button on the right is the current image, the one on the left is text-based: http://www.wineberserkers.com/images/quote.png This is the (Firefox-based) CSS which created the button: margin-top: 3px; ...

Re: Multiquote or saved quotes

And what about visually blind or visually impaired? Shouldn't they be able to use phpBB IV too? Ppl often just think about voluntary disabled js/css but there are also ppl that cann't take advantage from stuff like this ... The goal should be to present a functional experience to screen readers, no...

Re: Loading font from external website

How is styling of code tag related to this issue? I agree that it needs to be fixed, but it is not concern in this topic. Sure it is. It's a much bigger problem than the buttons and should be a higher priority. Plus, this didn't address my point: It did. You are incorrectly writing that internal fo...

Re: Loading font from external website

You are worrying about a slight font weight difference on FF/Mac, a configuration which might be used by a few dozen people...while titles, post text, and CODE tags use completely different-styled font families when viewed on different systems? Something doesn't seem right with this. (CODE tag is pa...

Re: Loading font from external website

The issue you raised about font weights concerned Mac systems...what you just posted is irrelevant to that issue since Arial would be used on Mac systems. I guess I don't understand why one would want to load multiple resources (one for the CSS if using Google, and at least two WOFF/EOT font files) ...

Re: Loading font from external website

Which one is poor choice? Open Sans, because I thought I made it clear that IMO using an external font for buttons is a mistake. The version of Droid Sans built into Android devices has none of the issues you raised. Nor does the version of Arial built into Windows/Mac/iPhone/iPad systems. I guess ...

Re: Loading font from external website

+1 - I think the button looks pretty weird as it is, and including external assets isn't really a problem any more. What looks weird are the images to the right of the button text. They serve no purpose other than adding additional resource demands to the page -- and, I suppose, the fact that "they...
