And then we let everyone and their dogs who have donated demand features. Not going to happen.

Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

Please read the Forum rules, it is at the top of each page.

The developers are tired of seeing it, so they did a word(s) replacement on certain phrases.

Re: AJAX in Olympus?

It has been said already but it bears repeating: AJAX came into it's own around a year ago, after the project was underway and feature request was closed. In a development cycle, you do not add features while underway. Yes, development has taken longer than expected but that doesn't mean phpBB devs ...

Re: AJAX in Olympus?

Problem is that 'My point is, at least AJAX works on all browsers.' is flat out wrong. Javascript is a big component of AJAX, and each browser's implimentation of javascript is different. More importantly, J in AJAX stands for javascript. Another problem is that all browsers do not support AJAX, thi...

Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

I guess it is a matter of preference then, because I don't like the way vBulletin does in terms of reply-posting. The reason is that when you hit reply, traditionally it not only posts your reply, it also refreshes the page along with any new posts. If you post with ajax, you have to hit refresh any...

Re: AJAX in Olympus?

All current browsers support AJAX, fyi. It's why so many CMSes and forums use it, now: there's no disadvantages. You are quite wrong on the 'no disadvantages'. Javascript is not equal on all/any browsers, for example the same code used on IE will not function well on Firefox, will eat up near 100% ...

Re: AJAX in Olympus?

The real problem with AJAX is that you have to take special care to make sure your javascript works on all browsers, otherwise you must also spend time gracefully degrading your javascript so that if a browser doesn't work as expected or they have javascript turned off that the site will still funct...

Re: [Olympus] Has it failed already?

phpSpell is the best opensource solution I've found for handling spelling in web-based applications, specifically phpBB. Spellingcow is nice, but isn't opensource. Spell checking should be in the hands of the writer, I typically use openoffice or ms word before posting unless it is a quick post like...
