Re: PHP in Google App Engine

Whats the point? It's not like it's a widely used System - It's only for Google's customers. Most people don't host PHP on App Engine. I think this should be a mod. I think you can get a free account on Google if your app doesn't use up too many system resources. Most people don't host PHP on App E...

Re: Inside: a benchmark of phpBB's performance under simulated load

Very interesting. What would be more useful would be some timers around the phpBB code so we can see which sections or queries are taking the longest to complete. Iam pretty sure with debug enabled that all queries are already timed. But we already discussed earlier in this topic that the phpBB deb...

PHP in Google App Engine

Now that Google App Engine has a sandbox for PHP, maybe we should take a look at writing a storage engine for phpBB to use Google's datastore. They already have a MySQL-compatible database, but there is also the Google Cloud Storage system. Some links for everyone: https://developers.google.com/appe...

Re: A member's profile url should be the username

The solution to this problem is to include the User ID in the URL too and perform the SQL query based on this ID.

Issue a 301 redirect if the username in the URL is wrong or missing.

Re: [RFC|Merged] AJAX

Another thing I would like to see AJAX-ed is the search bar on the viewforum screen. It doesn't necessarily need to load as you type, but if it could filter the forum's topics by keyword without a page reload, that would be pretty cool. Someone's gotten spoiled with Google Instant... :lol: A lot of...

Re: [RFC] User Self Delete

Users should not be able to permanently delete themselves and all of their records, the records may be important for administrative staff and potentially even for legal reasons. Deactivating their accounts and removing everything from the public is enough. This. Look at how Yahoo handles it. They a...
