Scylla and Charybdis in Solo [spoilers?]

Re: Biggest competition threats to PHPBB forums

If you want to see a terrific example of what phpBB can be, go look at BOB. That board may have some great things under the hood, but you don't get a second chance to make a good first impression -- and it makes a less-than-desirable first impression. After seeing the (essentially-unmodified) subsi...

Re: Biggest competition threats to PHPBB forums

If you want to see a terrific example of what phpBB can be, go look at BOB. http://www.forumtopics.com/busobj/ It's a forum AND a technical Q&A board. It's been heavily MODed for both user need and admin needs. It's a frequent target of spammers and have a very large active global user base. As a mo...

Re: Handling base64 images in the [img] tag.

Actually I think that any tag that gets input that is unexpected ought to display an error message. For instance the URL tag if it gets a badly formed URL. Most posts don't get a preview before they're submitted, so on that page that pops up after submission would be a good place to post the message...

Re: How do I get those little graphics to appear?

Also, please don't bump 2 year old topics ;) The point of an archive is specifically so that it can be revived - otherwise it would be pruned. Sure the guy was in the wrong place, but newbies don't know which functions are ACP things and which are sftp/vi things (or notepad for you Windows guys) - ...

Re: Language specific options

Oh, I see you also want a language translation for forum names too. That is trickier. I did leave out some details in my earlier reply, but this is a different animal. My earlier solution is not what you want. For programmatic languages there are the various language files, but you are wanting langu...

Re: Language specific options

I believe the point is to have the site name be configurable per language setting. The "simple" way to implement this would be to put the site name in one of the the language files \language\en\common.php 'SITE_NAME' => 'My Cool Bulletin board', or \language\de\common.php 'SITE_NAME' => 'Mein kühles...
