Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

Such a feature would have to be optional and disabled by default. For one reason because of the listed drawbacks (especially leaking information), but It probably also requires the webserver to coorporate. A way around that is to have a click-through page (for all external links) that just acts an ...

Re: [RFC] Pretty URLs

Can you explain more precisely what the cleaning of the topic title would work like? What are your thoughts on handling Unicode? Are the compatability problems with webservers and unicode in paths? Should it be u<i> or m<i> for user/member? We have a member list, but typically refer to users. Clean...

Re: Ban user and disapprove all posts or delete user and pos

I would also make it hookable, with the IP, Username, and Email available. MOD authors could create a spammer blacklist reporting system with such a thing. Maybe we could also create a Ban Type: Normal, Spammer. A "Spammer" type ban would be rid the posts, clear out the profile, basically nuke the u...

Re: SEO URLs

I believe a simple solution could be implemented that would allow users to change topic titles without breaking the links. (looking back more closely at this thread, it resembles nn-'s suggestion). /phpbb3/ <- Board index /phpbb3/general-discussion-12/ <- General Discussion forum (id of 12) /phpbb3/...

Re: [RFC] Reinventing the ACP

The first post has been edited with another screenshot concept. Overall, this might end up a good idea. Just a few things I'd think about: I wouldn't tie up the design and the backend code - they can be developed independently. I certainly agree with changing the backend code to make creating module...

[RFC] Reinventing the ACP

The current tabular/navigation based ACP is effective and very clean, but perhaps this type of administration of software via a web interface has numbered days. With rich internet applications taking over, and the web seeming less stateless each day, we may want to consider other alternatives to thi...
