It has been a while since I have watched phpBB development, can you point me to a feature list for 3.1 and the future?

Re: What is the future of phpBB????

Community hasn't changed. Many people always wanted integrated CMS, some coders have created solutions for them such as phpNuke, phpBBFM, phpBB Plus, Icy Phoenix, etc. phpBB is forum software and will probably always stay only forum software. Trying to be everything is never a good idea. Just look ...

What is the future of phpBB????

OK, I spent some time this morning searching around the site and haven't found a clear answer to a question I have, so I hope no one minds this one. What is the future direction of phpBB? The forum "community" has changed in recent years, and many admins, including myself, are looking for a more com...

Inserting new users in to DB, can it be done??

OK, here is an odd question, and I think I might be able to work thru this one, but want to check if there is a MOD already in place for this. I have a list of users that I want to import into my existing DB. The purpose of this is that I have a few years worth of mailing list output that I want to ...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

Try for your self: http://www.cs278.org/tools/phpbb/hash.php click hash multiple times and see the differences. Nice ! I told you, i have no idea how they work. So How does it know when I log in how to compare the password I entered to what is has in the DB, if the hashes are never the same? If it ...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

normalhash(password1) equals normalhash(password1) but normalhash(username1 + password1) does not equal normalhash(username2 + password1) (phpbb3 method is more complicated than this and does not use the username) normalhash(username1 + password1) equals normalhash(username1 + password1) But would ...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

like I said I have no idea how the hash works :( I guess you are saying even if the same password is chosen, they will not come out of the hash the same??

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

If it hasen't been mentioned before, will there be a way for the admin of a forum to use a pass phrase to assist in the creation of the hash. Is this possible? or am I off in space. I know very little about the hashing procedure. I would think with hundreds of different pass phrases, it would limit ...
