Re: What is "diff engine" ?

Perhaps I misunderstood this "diff engine." So let me ask this question: How will updates be handled in Olympus? Will we still have to download, unpack, disable our boards, run the upgrade script, re-enable our board, etc? Or can there be a more automated way to "check for updates" and have them ins...

For those of us who don't mod, an easier update process would be greatly appreciated!

That's what I was thinking, too. There should be a routine check of all "required" fields upon login. That automatically solves this problem. :)

Custom profile fields

When the time comes to switch to Olympus I will be adding a custom profile field for real name. This field will be required for all users.

My question: When I upgrade from phpBB 2.0.20 to Olympus will there be a provision to require previously existing users to complete the new field?

Thanks.

I think you just said the opposite of what you meant. That's a double negative. :)

Your statement equates to: "It's creepy if it's finished."

I installed CVS 2.1.2

Yesterday I installed phpBB 2.1.2 on one of my test domains. All I can say is, "Wow." :) Installation was way cool. Loved it. I have played with a bunch of the new features and love them, too. I can't wait to get them on my production site. Some of these are badly needed to make my life easier. I ju...

PHP upgrading

My installed version of PHP is apparently too old to meet the Olympus requirement of >= 4.3.3. So while waiting for the beta I thought I'd work on prepping my server. My question: Tech support tells me that 4.3.3 itself is rather old, too. They also strongly suggested not going to PHP5. They said th...

Re: New CAPTCHA

Hey, my first post in area51. Look at all the pretty colors. :) First thought - I am so excited to see this thread. I have been following it for days. The captcha prototypes are very exciting. I've said this before - I currently run about 8 phpBB sites and I'm getting hammered with spam registration...
