Re: Move "Extension management" up in "Customise" tab

+1 on this request. Although the tracker shows this fixed in 3.1 RC5, it is not this way in the the final release 3.1.

Re: Resize avatars and/or images on the client and server side

I would like to see the next release of phpBB have the ability to use ImageMagick server-side to downsize photos when they are uploaded. We need to keep things simple for users, so having the server automatically resize it to no larger than say 800px wide or tall (set in the ACP) is a function that ...

Re: How does 3.1 handle image attachments?

Here is a test of an image attachment in area51 OK well it looks like your settings here are to show the thumbnail max width of 400px and retain the full image resolution. That's workable for me but it would be nice to have the original uploaded file resized to like a max of 700 px wide when it's up...

How does 3.1 handle image attachments?

By default, how does 3.1 handle image attachments? In particular I want to know if it: - automatically resizes the photos when displayed in the thread so they don't stretch out really wide and cause horizontal scrolling - automatically resize uploaded file to save disk space on the server (using Ima...

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Removal of subsilver2

Well since you are dropping subsilver2, the least you can do is include a mobile-friendly style that auto-detects the browser/visitor. Mobile is the future of the web, and it would be nice to have a mobile-friendly site without MODs.

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Removal of subsilver2

I've been using phpBB since way back, May 2001 was my first install (now has 500K+ posts). I use subsilver2 on all my forums. Personally I don't like the look of prosilver. I would definitely be unhappy if subsilver2 was dropped. With that said, I don't totally understand why you want to get rid of ...

Re: Spam Bots & phpBB3?

The amount of spam hitting my phpbb3 forums since Feb 2 has totally reminded me of the phpbb2 days. Not good. I have implemented the custom profile fields antispam mod and it has helped. I also banned large IP ranges. I have also noticed much of the spam is from the gmail domain, I'm not quite ready...
