Re: Search engine friedly url for phpbb

However, there are lengthy discussions about it, both here and at phpBB.com. For example, trying reading the Human Readable URLs RFC.

SEO people say that it's a "must have", while other people say that, at best, you'll get a very minor bump in SERP.

Re: Change title of main topic and title of response

It's VERY simple, I believe. If the title of the topic post doesn't equal the old topic title, just update all occurrences in the posts table where the title equals "RE: [old topic title]" to "RE: [new topic title]". You can probably do it myPHPAdmin. (NOTE: I haven't looked at the phpBB database fo...

Re: Posts moving

He's saying that there's a slight incongruity in function between splitting posts to a new topic and moving posts to an existing topic. You can split a group of selected posts OR all posts starting with a given post. However, you can only move selected posts to an existing topic; you can't select on...

Re: Resize large images in signatures to 300px

Resizing it using CSS will still result in all users downloading the entire image. If some people are crazy enough to use a 5MB photo as their signature, people browsing on their mobile phone won't be happy. Which is probably why violating the size constraint denies uploading the image instead of r...

Re: Resize large images in signatures to 300px

Why not just use the Maximum signature image width and Maximum signature image height settings? I presume that it prevents adding large signatures, but if it scales the image to fit the space, I'm not sure how excessive scrolling occurs (I can see why page load times will be longer). Maybe I'm missi...

Re: Add the birthday Custom profile field in the ACP

If you do it the right way, it should be easy to generalize. Don't put special code in for one thing that won't work with another. You don't have to expose all of the items as CPFs (like username), but there's no reason why it couldn't be there, either. For example, I may not want people's profiles ...

Re: Add the birthday Custom profile field in the ACP

Forget about just using birthdays. It would be nice to have a generic system for including user attributes in profile fields. Maybe everything displayed in the user's profile (user name, rank, join date, etc.) should be a non-deleteable, non-editable (the data isn't editable, the display settings wo...

Re: cutes and tildes search (feature request)

Just FYI, tilde is the "~" symbol, often (only?) found in Spanish above an "n". You didn't ask for a mapping of that. You're referring to accent marks on the "a", except for the mark below the "c", which is a cedilla . I have no idea what "cutes" are, unless that's short for "acute". However, search...

Re: [Define New Theme] 8. Utilize Font Awesome icons where icons are needed to simplify server requests.

I agree with VSE. Sometimes simplifying server requests (and icon design) isn't the best thing for users. It was a good proof-of-concept, but not all suggestions have to be accepted. Another question -- Should phpBB at least include support for Font Awesome (perhaps by including extension hooks) for...
