Re: Permissions/Authorization database changes.

With modern computers and a few indices, it takes about 0.001 seconds to scan through a few million rows ;).

Re: Datetimes in phpBB

Why don't they just use the TIMESTAMP column type? It's the easiest.. and times are in a simple to read manner:
20040828125323 would be the timestamp on my computer right now :).

Thats:
YYYYMMDDhhmmss

Re: Default 2.2 theme. Images to optimised PNG?

There is a simple workaround for IE using a DX rendering method. http://webfx.eae.net/dhtml/pngbehavior/pngbehavior.html" target="_blank (if you apply that workaround, it's a good idea to remove the size of the image and just change "scale" in the filter to "image.") but if you really really want t...

Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

Instead of complaining, this is why they a) invented Object-Oriented Programming (blackbox everything, makes it easy to maintain a program too), and b) functions. Instead of putting everything into one PHP script and using conditional statements, have the functions control everything (functions that...

Re: Oi.. my dbase will explode

Is this supposed to be some kind of a joke? A few thousand entries is nothing to a modern computer, and especially to a modern RDBMS. Even if it gets to a million entries, the phpBB2.2 team will still be able to keep queries down to a few milliseconds by using indices. Perhaps your worries are unwar...

Re: subforum layout display.

Hmm, I have nested categories in 2.1.2 and it doesn't look like the second picture at all. I have to click on the subcategory to see just one level of categories/forums. What gives?

Re: Question about the Subforums

Excellent feature! However I fear there is one problem with it. When we are using this feature, would it be possible to make it so that a "category" actually acts like a "category" (just like root categories show the categories' forums and the descriptions) so that when a subforum appears in the ind...

What kind of a question is this? Admins have levels now, you can restrict them so they can or cannot enter passworded forums :)

Re: difference between area51 and CVS

But the biggest question is.. why doesn't the PM system work, it's the only thing stopping me from using 2.2 in a real environment :D

Re: Forum Image associated with forum?

Ar, what bothers me the most is that some things are deliberately left unfinished like searching and PMs. Why couldn't we go feature-by-feature instead of implementing a whole bunch of features that don't work? :( So when are we going to see a beta with features that work anyways, this summer I hope...
