Mutiple Local Permissions

phpBB3 has an excellent permissions system. One area I would like to see improved for phpBB4 would be multiple local permissions. What is a local permission for those not knowing?

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

Can you confirm the No was to the question "Does this copy of the phpBB2 DB still exist on the phpBB Database server?" I do understand what happens to the password from a phpBB3 point of view. My question was related to the fact that the password is left in an unchanged state in the original phpBB2 ...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

Hope I can ask a question. As a user who has logged in since the phpBB3 conversion I know my current password is in the newer format. However normally a conversion uses a different DB as its source. Does this copy of the phpBB2 DB still exist on the phpBB Database server?

Re: Programmatic Create Private Message

You would be best to ask in MOD writter on phpBB.com However you should examine the submit_pm() function, below is a example of it in use by a MOD I wrote.                 include_once($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/functions_privmsgs.' . $phpEx);                 include_once($phpbb_root_path . 'inclu...

Re: phpBB 3.2 Discussion

JRSweets, I have a patch 90% ready, I needed this for my site badly so all my coding effort the last few weeks has been on this. Maybe (probably ;)) the phpBB Dev team can come up witha cleaner solution, but maybe they will gather an idea or two for my implementation. Either way for 3.0.x I have mys...
