Re: How about a Torrent Tracker

You can upload torrent files using the attachment feature. However, a tracker server should be seperate from the forum software. Mainly because a tracker is a different kind of service and uses a different set of ports then HTTP.

Re: Smarty as your template engine..

Um no. They may have used one process from Smarty, but that does not make the entire template system Smarty.

Re: Feature envy

A lot of the stuff is just recycled from earlier feature requests that were rejected for one reason or another. Others really have no meaningful use on a forum while yet others will have very difficult technical hurtles for the developers to overcome.

Re: Proposed code review of phpBB

Throughout the nearly 3 years that the 2.0.x branch has been released, there has only been one major security hole that has been found that could compromise the entire server. All other security matters have been limited to just the board itself. And even for the one major security whole, a patch wa...

Re: Now it's late-Feb/early-March!

Btw, maybe phpbb should look for more dev's to help out? At this point in the development cycle, adding new developers will actually slow things down. The new developers are going to have to spend a great deal of time learning the code that is already there and the coding standards that Paul and th...

Re: Now it's late-Feb/early-March!

No. psotfx had said that they were expecting to have beta ready by late feb/early march and no-one has attacked the devs for not having it ready by now. But the complaining and the repeatedly asking for a new estimate are bad enough. psotfx said that the beta release has been pushed back once more,...

Re: Will it be easier?

What sarcasm? Where? Actually, you've got it backwards, the code is actually LESS clean. In fact, the devs have gone our of their way to make it difficult to read, by doing things out of order, inefficiently, and by putting in code that doesn't actually do anything. So much so, that even the though...

If you want to chat with someone, why not use IRC or an IM client instead? A forum is a forum, not a chat client.

Re: phpBB's storage of time and dates in the database

It is much easier and faster to use the time() function, which gives the same results based in the Unix Epoch regardless of the time zone you are in, and convert the results to whatever format you need using the built in PHP functions.
