Re: Efficiency of passing variables by reference

erm : when you pass a variable per reference, you send the memory address of this variable, in other case you pass a copy of this variable. I can hardly see how it can be less performant (regarding memory usage) with large vars as $userdata or board_config (to use a well-known example) :).

Re: New OOP permissions system

Inheritance sounds like being a convenient way, but halas it is not really the truth : first you have to modify all instanciating of the objects to use the new class, then you don't know if another modifications hasn't been already made with the same class, so having its own inherited definition : a...

Re: New OOP permissions system

Actualy I don't think so, rather the contrary truly talking : as you handle structured data, they are commonly more heavy than flat data. With php5, some improvement has been made regarding the addressing of objects (absolute vs dynamic), but it is not yet a real OOP language as it can be undrstood ...

Are you sure of this ? I didn't encounter any flew by my side on php 5.0.3 running phpBB 2.0.13 : even the $_* are correctly handled.

Re: Topic description and onmouseover preview.

IMHO, probably, in the next releases, the coders will continue to implement the changes coming from the rpgnet.clanmckeen.com.(../..) Oh my, no :) : there are no links between the both. ie, categories hierarchy was born because I was a moderator on a large vB board, and as my personnal board was ge...

Re: Mods with a "^M" at end of lines on a Linux sy

IMHO, the best way to proceed is to not run easyMOD remotly, but to prefer a local setting for it : there are numerous tools allowing this, like easyPHP.org or wampserver.com. Once you have all test localy, you can use a regular ftp client which will handle this conversion naturaly, and you will hav...

Re: Nag nag on the release date

The devs have no obligations at all, therefore they have absolutly no excuses at all to give. If you feel this is not the way you want it to be, well, nobody forces you to use phpBB, and you have plenty other choices which will probably better fullfill your awaitings.

Re: Error installing calendar mod

No : just paste the [ SQL ] part of the mod install description into the SQL window of phpMyadmin. There are still many bugs or unsupported but standard SQL requests in the SQL process of easyMOD, so consider easyMOD is not able to perform the SQL part of a mod install description. By my side, I thi...

Re: Using EM to install MOD Categories hierarchy - 2.1.0

The simplest way : compare all your files with the "installed" pack : it should be exactly the same (directory content, and files content). A added file is probably missing, or unreachable due to its owner.
