Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

Let me put it this way:
  1. Replace IRC with Discord
  2. ???
  3. Greater engagement
What happens in phase 2 that leads to phase 3?

Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

Can you provide a practical example of something that would be made possible by using Discord instead of IRC + forums?

Re: Support for Emojis

Having consistent emoji is very expensive in development and maintenance. Here are some of the reasons. First off, every operating system, device or browser has its own way to display emoji. It can be as a nice color image, a slightly less nice black-and-white image, or even not an image at all with...

Re: Support for Emojis

Personally I have no plans whatsoever. I do maintain the Noto fork but I have no plans for it either.

The only reliable emoji set that's on a public CDN is Twemoji and it uses a different naming scheme as the one used in s9e\TextFormatter. Switching to it would require some work.

Hi JoshyPHP s9e/highlighter looks great, I installed it on a board run by phpBB 3.2 and tried it but does not seem to work! What might be a problem?
Hundreds, maybe thousands of things. If you post a link to your board that will narrow the scope.

Re: Support for Emojis

I'm considering forking either Twemoji or Noto with filenames that match Emojione for backward compatibility, but I need to check that it can be hosted by a free CDN such as cdnjs.

Re: [RFC] Login with email

we hit a brick wall because someone thinks this is too much work or whatever. I'd like you to take a moment to ask yourself why you don't implement this feature, since you clearly want it. Even if you don't know PHP, it isn't a difficult language to learn. Could it be because it is too much work? A...

PHPBB3-15444 - Merge duplicate BBCodes via a migration

Context: in 3.1, it was possible to create two BBCodes using the same name; One without an attribute and the other with. This was presumably to handle polymorphic BBCodes such as [url] or [quote] . In 3.2.1, it is still possible to create two BBCodes in the ACP but only one of them will effectively...

Re: Support for Emojis

Rawgit could work. jsDelivr is an option, too. Does anybody here know about free CDNs?

Re: Support for Emojis

The issue with Noto is that the gradients make them look mushy at low resolution. Try resizing them to 18 × 18, the size of emoji here. I'm waiting for the SVGs to become available to see if it's much better than the resized PNGs.
