Re: On password protected forums...

One interesting question, after upgrade to a version of phpBB not supporting passworded forums, what will happen to existing passworded forums?

Re: PhpBB server load management

If you push load management to the application, by the time it starts checking whether the request should be served, a hundred different PHP files have already been loaded, a connection to the database has been established, a dozen different tables have already been queried and ~40% of the work req...

PhpBB server load management

The existing phpBB server load management system is rubbish, at least for the purpose of maintaining the best service for users while the server load is high. My main forum recently had an episode of server overloading which from log analysis seems to have been caused by an overly aggressive search ...

Re: .svg as user uploaded attachments or [img] links

Thanks for the information and links. I will do some more reading. If SVGs served as images are not a security threat, am I correct in thinking that the non-support of the image/svg+xml mime type by phpBB (for display as an in-line image) is only becausse no-one has got around to implementing it yet?

Re: .svg as user uploaded attachments or [img] links

If disabling of external svg images in the s9e formatter turns out to be difficult, it is also possible to catch the links later at the point of the 'core.page_footer_after' event, which is where the camo image proxy extension modifies external image links with http:// addresses. A bit ugly doing it...

Re: .svg as user uploaded attachments or [img] links

they actually need to be allowed as we move forward as we are working to convert all images we use to allow SVG versions, ie icons, rank images, imagesets, etc. Since our main mechanic for sharing is through attachments on .com. We should implement something as you point out. SVG code is actually v...

.svg as user uploaded attachments or [img] links

I can't see that there has been any recent discussion here on this subject. I have some users who have good reasons for wanting to upload .svg images, and I am considering implementing something to make it possible. This could be an extension, but it could also be a core enhancement, hence starting ...

Re: Name of the new style

After ignoring it for 2 years, I have just been reading most of the posts here about the new style and its framework. It seems obvious to me that the new style does need a name, to move it from the abstract to the concrete, and to make searching/indexing of posts here somewhat easier. It does not re...

Have you looked at Tables - phpBB Development Wiki?
No, I had not found that. It is almost exactly what I was looking for.

Database schema/relationships documentation?

I have a couple of phpBB projects that I am considering. It would be nice if there was some existing documentation on the structure and relationships of data in the database. Is there anything other than the source code and sql schema (which doesn't capture a lot of relationships that the software r...
