Re: PHPBB3-14323 / PHPBB3-14332 - Link shortening

Well I think of the url tag as an explicit call to the parser that "here really comes a link, so pay attention!". That I wanted to show the link in his whole length. You could also ask why we need a url bbcode anymore then if they have the same behaviour. I don't know, I just like the old behaviour ...

Re: PHPBB3-13803 / PHPBB3-13891 - Reparsing text

Sorry, I might be a bit late for this, but... I just looked through the reparser. (like I said - a bit late ^^) The tables are defined as constants, which will result in another BC break, if we want to get rid of constants at some point. (I think this is the final goal of all this?) Why would it res...

Re: [RFC] Contact-us needs the anti-spam-plugin integrated

The issue is really just the captcha I think. People, who just can't read the captcha have no way to contact the board administration then and we can't do that.

I don't know if Q&A captcha would be okay, but if it is, we should think about that.

Re: What can you say about Flarum?

Well... I wouldn't consider Flarum a forum software. To me it's a software for creating a platform for online discussions.
It's just too confusing and messy to me.

I like that timeline when scrolling through a topic, though. :)

Re: PHP requirement

If we use specific functions or language features which are not available in some php version, then it's okay to bump the version, but to bump the requirement so we could use some functions or language features is not okay IMHO. I don't get it. You have to bump the requirements before you can use a...

Re: PHP requirement

As I already said: I'm not against a version bump to 5.4 for 3.2. I just think we shouldn't set the php to require just because the current required php version is EOL'd. If we use specific functions or language features which are not available in some php version, then it's okay to bump the version...

Re: PHP requirement

Do you know how many of our users still use PHP 5.3? If there are too many I wouldn't push the requirement then. ;)
Otherwise, it's ok for me.

I guess this will only remove the sid from newly made posts. But, can you add the function to reparse all old posts to remove it,in the database_update.php?
No, because that would take forever but we want to add a cron job for reparsing everything. I don't know the status of that, though.

Re: Google Ads enforces EU cookie legislation and demands we notify the visitor

However, some admins are worried about bloat and unnecessary ACP options, which is why I suggested officially-supported extensions. I presume that officially-supported extensions (as opposed to regular extensions) get the same scrutiny as core code, so they would be safe. [...] Of course, this depe...
