Re: Future support for Sphinx Search

OK, so just a simple mention in the release notes would cover that.

Re: Future support for Sphinx Search

Wouldn't that also depend on the version of Sphinx installed on the server? E.g. wouldn't phpBB need to support both "old and new" Spinx?

Re: [NEW THEME] 4. JS frameworks & approach

This is what we truly aim to solve. Do not get me wrong certain aspect could truly benefit from Ajax via an api as well which is a huge advantage not just for core but for extensions Agreed. As an extension author, I have more than once settled for a suboptimal approach or even had to skip function...

Re: On password protected forums...

By all means, ditch it. I can't remember any board using it in the past decade, except Area51 of course.

-edit-
Just peeked in that yogurt forum, it's full of topics from 2003 where people are voting for removing that feature. Might be time to just do it.

Re: Outlining a New Theme

I see, it's base-l ? I've looked at your Github repo's but didn't recognize it as having anything to do with phpBB. Seems like a starting point. Not sure where the second quote came from but it’s sort of out of context. The post right above my previous, from last December. Essentially we are working...

Re: Outlining a New Theme

From the JS topic: If you are familiar with the progress of the new theme you will know that I am wrote from scratch our own custom framework for handling the CSS. And here: Look for more information on .com I have looked, but really I cannot find anything indicating a status, some code, some docs, ...

Re: Name of the new style

Just call it "Granny" to refer to inheritance. Or something like "Genesis" (albeit that might be a bit too Christian)

Re: Releasing 3.2.3

is there something I'm missing that's holding RC2 (or final) 3.2.3 back? Language changes were posted in march saying there would be a release 'soon'.

Re: [NEW THEME] 4. JS frameworks & approach

First off: this part of the discussion might be better off in it's own topic: BC for extension/styles. But my opinion on this: I think it's a bit premature to discuss all of the possible drawbacks and extension/style developers running away while we (or I for one) have really no clue what we're talk...

Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

I must say, I didn't really know what Discord was until I Googled it yesterday. I've head about it on some tech related websites, but that's about it. Now I'm sure it works fine, but I'm afraid it would end up to be yet another communication platform to keep track of and that it won't replace IRC co...
