Extensionalize phpBB

Hi, I have a proposal, to see what you think about it. Now that the extension system is more and more robust, I think it would make sense to lighten the core by externalizing quite some features into official? extensions. That way, the core would be kept slim, easier to manage, and with much clearer...

Re: Avatars

If I may chime in, in my opinion, both things are compatible: use a default avatar for everyone that does not have one, but allow to disable ALL avatars. I guess the issue with style designs is homogeneity: you should either have avatars for all (using default avatar if needed) or for none. If you g...

Re: Database schema/relationships documentation?

I just found out about this:

Might not be perfect (at least there are quite some missing relations), but definitely helps!

Re: Extensions load order

Quick way around this. Beware as this will be lost any time that you install a new version of any of the affected extensions. Say you have vendor1/extA and vendor2/extB extensions, both using event page_blah . And you want them to be loaded in the order A then B. Then, you open: ext/vendor1/extA/sty...

In any event the vendor/namespace information is easily found by clicking on the "Details" option against each extension in the ACP

How to fix status of Tracker tickets?

Situation: trying to update an old PR, I did a local merge of phpbb 3.2 branch into it, and then resolved all new merge conflicts, and updated the code with the new changes. The results were good, so I committed and pushed the changes back. This created a complete mess, as I had not noticed that the...

Re: Add base controller to avoid boilerplate code

Maybe better if added to Skeleton Extension? Well, you're offering me not to write this code by hands but still to have this code. I want to not have it at all. No, I am not offering you anything, I am suggesting the place where I think this fits best IN MY OPINION, that is not better than anyone e...

Re: "last_post_id" meaning is overloaded

Sorry to bump this topic: I am getting complains from people using the "Change Post Time" extension, as the time is not honored in the forum (and topic) first and last post ids. This is NOT an extension issue, it is a core issue, as I showed above. Any opinions? Should we try to solve it? Or leave i...
