Ok, then I was thinking the same way you did, thanks :)

Re: what does left_id and right_id in the table forums?

The parent_id is not actually needed, only the parent has to be known - and this is also possible without the parent_id (the tree is build solely on left/right ids and if layed out correctly you are able to identify all parents by going through the list and spotting every direct parent from the chi...

Re: what does left_id and right_id in the table forums?

Third note: However, to simply 'build' or perhaps I should have said 'display' the tree, only the left and right id's are needed. Still not quite. If you want to know the indentation of an element you need to know the parent_id in order to correctly establish the parent and thus the indentation of ...

Re: what does left_id and right_id in the table forums?

No, I believe you are mistaken. From what I know from reading the tutorial posted earlier in this topic, the entire tree can be built using just left and right ID's. They are the relationship between the forums. Not quite, you still need the information about the parent. However, using parent_id, l...

Re: what does left_id and right_id in the table forums?

The structure is called a Nested set ;) It's a special kind of tree: you store the tree in a linear structure (your database) and re-assemble it into a tree in linear time complexity. Of course, completely rebuilding the tree or adding/deleting items is not completely trivial, but since those action...

Re: Request for Stopping Spambots in 3.0

*Note: we are aware that our current VCS is not the safest, but there is no bot known to us that is actually using the weakness as for now Ok, I guess I'll check my server logs then. I'm not 100% sure it's a bot, but it's a regular pattern of usernames/email addresses that crack through the VCS. @E...

Re: phpBB 3.x.x and register_global ...

The second comprimise would be to allow install of the script with register_globals on, and flag their board as having it on) but deny those users support(untill they turn it off). Oh boy, you don't have any idea of what it means to support dumb users, do you? Just imagine these scenarios: Sc. 1: 1...

Re: phpBB 3.x.x and register_global ...

We are still looking at what to do with respects to this code. Well, glad you're rethinking it. I think the problem is simple: not everybody can disable register_globals, some hosters have it enabled and refuse to disable it. For those people, I wouldn't disable the installation globally. I'd like ...

Re: ACP style in IE7

This is the point where I love that I can lock my own topics. You three have hijacked it enough. -> I was not criticizing Microsoft or IE, and I didn't look for comments like that -> I was not hoping that someone would start jumping on that train -> I only said, that the CSS Hacks used to make it lo...
