Re: Some minor full editor improvements

The reasoning that people should only make basic replies on a phone is absurd. I've already demonstrated some relatively minor changes which greatly improve the full editor mobile posting experience. Why deny making things better?

Re: Some minor full editor improvements

Whether or not the message markup system gets changed, you still need buttons to give inexperienced users ways to format their message. If/when phpBB finally gets a WYSIWYG interface (another thing long overdue) for posting they will be necessary. And putting the whole bbCode issue aside, the CSS of...

IPhone 7

Part of the issue might be unless you have font size 16 or bigger in the text area (or select box) then iOS will zoom in the page. This is one of the code changes I had above.

Re: Some minor full editor improvements

With my out of date comment I was trying to emphasize how phpBB has been slow to adapt to new web technologies. We basically just got some Ajax functionality which was long overdue. A large portion of web viewing is now done on mobile devices. It is ridiculous how bad trying to post in phpBB is on t...

Re: Some minor full editor improvements

I posted some ideas to improve the style for mobile editing, but no one was interested in discussing it on the main forum. phpBB is 10 years out of date when it comes to posting on smartphones. I don't understand why this has not been a priority. All the improvements to making viewing a forum respon...

Re: Allowing Extensions to Modify Any Database Query

Yeah, Pony explained it better than I did. It was just an idea to allow extensions the ability to execute code or add/modify database queries any place there is activity with the database. I don't know how useful this would be overall.

Re: Allowing Extensions to Modify Any Database Query

I disagree with the initial proposal. If you want to edit an SQL query just require an event where the query is built and use this event to transmit and alter the query But then you would need an event at every single location where a SQL query is built. That is currently not the case. Putting even...

Allowing Extensions to Modify Any Database Query

I wanted to create my first extension so I went about trying to do a simple one to prevent a topic view count increasing if viewed by the topic creator. But as far as I can tell this is impossible. There is no way to modify any specific database query. And you can't modify the files direction anymor...

[RFC] hook_convert_password

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Removal of subsilver2

In any case, it's really easy to change: Knowledge Base - Prosilver: Profiles on Left That is definitely not an easy change. Doing code edits is tricky for some/many people. If we are talking about what the majority wants, they want topic data on the left. If it can't be made an option then perhaps...
