Re: [RFC] MediaWiki-like Diff Engine for Posts

Err... OP was talking about a post-history feature. :) Basically it means your post is stored as the last version + inverse diffs for each older version of the post. Makes the script logic simple. viewtopic just has to display the last version and can skip the rest in 99% of all cases. For the remai...

Re: [RFC] MediaWiki-like Diff Engine for Posts

VBulletin has a feature like this and I can see the usefulness from a site staff standpoint. Not as useful as a recycle bin, but still useful. Why didn't you suggest it for say 3.2? It doesn't have to be hard to implement. You could store all the history in the post itself using special tags, and th...

Re: [RFC|Accepted] Support of SQLite 3.0+

The question is whether it makes sense adding SQLite 3.0+ support using PDO without having a generic PDO implemention because that's been moved back to 3.2. Redoing the database layer doesn't really have anything to do with a specific backend. That it requires a newer version of PHP shouldn't be a ...

Re: New Smiles

That's more of a problem with theme-makers too lazy to supply their own set now isn't it? >_> Your statement is true. Unfortunately translucency in PNGs isn't supported for all browsers (IE6 notably), but they should work better than GIFs on modern browsers at least. :geek: It's a good idea to switc...

Re: what is the best chat room to integrate with phpBB?

(new) mchat is good. but if you need realtime chat I'd recommend qwebirc. that can also be integrated on the menu so that it uses the member's usernames. as a bonus it scales well with many users where mchat etc. tends to generate a lot of extra traffic. check out http://qchat.rizon.net for a demo. ...

Re: New Smiles

Bah. There's a bunch of silly icons you COULD add, but if one should make a rationale for what to include in the default set, it should be that there should be one emoticon for every usual emotion. So the discussion should turn towards what the default set seems to be lacking in that respect. Beer e...

Re: Fixing the display of attachments.

The initial post outlined how it would look when implemented.

It's a rather small change so I don't mind submitting a proper patch.
Is one for 3.0.7-pl1 acceptable or does it have to be against 3.1?

Re: [RFC] Autosave

does it have to be proper? autosave is a last-resort feature to save the contents of a long post for a short amount of time, there's no need to involve server side at all IMO, and that keeps things simple as they ought to be. if javascript stores the post in a local file named with session id, topic...

Re: Fixing the display of attachments.

@ahauck: Ah... actually I had a co-admin take care of that particular modification. Using tables is easy but not recommended, a good way to do it would be to use DIVs instead and then edit the style-sheet to make the thumbnails display horizontally. I'll attach a diff where the feature is implemente...

Re: [RFC] Autosave

caching a post client side sounds like the way to go but do you have any sources on that?
were you thinking of something like javascript+flat file?

i know firefox etc. stores post data, but I wouldn't call it reliable, on the contrary.
