Re: When's Release? And would I be able to upgrade with MODs

From the look of things all mods will have to be ported to work with 2.2. Some things remain the same but other things have changed like the user and auth variables which are now objects. For instance some things that will have to be changed: From: $userdata = session_pagestart($user_ip, PAGE_INDEX)...

You realize the current 2.1.2 is alpha? No support, no converters, missing features, plenty of bugs and only CVS releases.

Re: photo album

Implementing what I've said would be a huge task. I think phpbb could easily switch to a paid application allowing you folks to do this full time. I'd have no issues paying $50 a year for your forum. No thanks. I hope phpbb can keep the truely free open-source idea alive without all the unecessary ...

Re: Number of Queries

"link" is a misleading term. AFAIK MySQL/Postgre/whatever do not "link" tables as, say Access does. Rather what MySQL does is a "join" and PostGre a "union". However, I don't think phpBB uses many of those, but more what Graham said- a lot of questions, and few queries. What DoD meant by a "link" i...

Re: Number of Queries

The first question was really about keeping queries low when you have unlimited subforums. I'm not associated with phpbb but looking at their code and database layout they use the nested-set theory aka Modified Preorder Tree Traversal which is explained really well in this article: http://www.sitepo...

Re: Call me crazy, but here's my portal for phpbb 2.1.2 :)

To squash any rumors on this end; * No I haven't been asked by the phpbb team and even if I was I don't have time to collaborate with others on an open source project at this time. * This is a pet project for fun :) I got burned out on computer programming a few years ago and I'm just starting to en...

Re: Use phpBB2

Grab the 2.1.x CVS version if you want to try 2.2. They are using the linux kernel numbering scheme.

Re: Stupid question about phpbb2.2's nested-set model.

Oh crap, it turns out it was a braindead mistake on my part when I rearrnaged a branch of the forums. When I moved them I wasn't paying attention and put the whole Server Side branch of Articles as a sibling of Articles instead of a child. *slaps forehead* My original query is working again. Sorry f...

Re: Stupid question about phpbb2.2's nested-set model.

As a followup can you tell me how much worse a self-join is compared to the nested-set especially on a big forum table? Just asking because at least a self-join still works but it's a little more effort to parse the results. Worried about it though because the parent_id is not an index so self-joini...
