Re: Do We Still Need Auto Update?

I wouldn't remove the Auto Update, but hide it so you have to search for it. There could be two different pages, one for installing and one for updating . On the updating page, the changed files method could be the first (big) tab, the auto update the second (smaller one) and the patch files method ...

Re: Make it less cluttered: My suggestions

I think the FAQ should be independent, but I agree on the others.

Re: A different take on phpBB for 2016 (style)

To be honest, is too minimalist for my taste. But thanks for the work nonetheless.

Re: [PHPBB-14706] Nested list bbcode renders wrong

I don't know about different behaviour, but your list is missing an asterisk before the second list. At least that's how I think it should be the proper format.

[list][*][list=a][*]a[*]b[*]c[*]d[*]e[/list][*]outer list[/list]
    1. a
    2. b
    3. c
    4. d
    5. e
  • outer list

Re: Repeating topic title in each post..

Also for those saying that it shows up in the title of the browser well the topic titles (plus site title and view topic prefix) are typically too long to show up in a tab, which is where it will show up on tablets, if at all, and on some desktop browsers it will show up in the browser title. On a ...

Re: Repeating topic title in each post..

The title bar in the browser shows the title of the topic. You decided to hide it? Well for you. But I don't understand why do you want to get rid of 1 instance of the title and then request to replace it with 20. And what happens when the post is veeeery long. Are you going to navigate through it u...

phpBB2 had it right.

Re: Change "Your Posts" to "My Posts"

How about we just get rid of the whole "you", "your", "my", "his", "her", "it's", etc. and just use "Topics posted in" (variation of what Steve said). I don't see why should we. Possessive adjectives are important. If you prefer the system 'talking' to you, as Louis7777 wrote, then it should be "Yo...

No, I "react" to lots of topics that I never post to. ;) A better phrase would be "Topics you posted in", which would cover topics that you started.
