Re: [prosilver] Forum and topic listing using tables

From a semantic point of view a table isn't a weird choice for this. However, from a styling point of view it's much easyer not to use tables for general layout since it's not very flexible. Therefore I prefer using divisions with lists. You can use display: in CSS on tables to, well, make it not a...

Re: URL Rewriting MOD

There has already been plenty of discussion on this before.

IIRC the biggest issue was that HTTP referrers could be leaked to pages linked from any topic by the client, which could give private information away.

Re: reCAPTCHA for emails

IMO phpBB shouldn't just depend on a single 3rd party solution (i.e. MailHide). If this was implemented, then it should be a plugin, not just designed for reCAPTCHA.

Re: Change "less than a minute ago" to something shorter

"Just now" is too informal for my taste. If I were trying to shorten this, I'd use "seconds ago" or "moments ago", but I really don't have a problem with "less than a minute ago" Sorry to bump an oldish topic... but I like "moments ago", that sounds best to me . "seconds ago" seems like something i...

Re: [prosilver] Forum and topic listing using tables

Anyone? Would this be more appropiate in 3.1 or 3.2 discussion?

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Removal of subsilver2

Just in reply to naderman's post, the fact is, prosilver is semantically better than subsilver2. Tables should not be used for layout - only for, well, tables.
That is why I am in favour of getting rid of subsilver2. ;)

[prosilver] Forum and topic listing using tables

I've been thinking for a while about the forum and topic listing in phpBB and the reasoning behind using <div>s instead of a table. Although I'm sure when prosilver was created the aim was to have a "tableless layout", it seems appropiate to have the forum and topic listings in a table rather than u...

Re: A Rant on Forums

I agree with him on the illegible text point... Why Trebuchet MS? There are a lot of other more readable fonts around. I'm also not a fan of prosilver's 90% layout, because the paragraphs end up becoming way to long (and hard to read) on my 1280*800 screen. In fact, the more I read over his/her post...

Re: iPhone theme

CSS3 makes support for smaller resolutions much easier.

The only issue with this is limited CSS3 support. AFAIK it would be possible to design a style that includes these CSS3 features, but still works without them.

Re: AJAX, jQuery, et. al.

You are assuming that it is just forum members that use the forum. I have seen vBulletin sites based on AJAX, and as a guest just passing by and reading a single page, it is extremely annoying and slow to load the AJAX interface. You also have to remember that phpBB must also work with users that do...
