Re: any information about code.php.com?

To re-cap, the server were not reachable due to a failure on a powerswitch in amsterdam. :) Regarding code.phpbb.com, the processes spawned directly after starting apache caused a too high load on the server, so it was immediately shut down. We adjusted this a little bit and now everything is runnin...

Re: Template procedures

I must say that the must-not-follow-smarty-even-if-it-kills-us attitude is unreasonable. For example, could it be used to generate something for the "User name and colouring"? I looked into how it's done currently in phpBB. It is done by a PHP function, generate_user_string(), which just generates ...

Re: Users table is too big to use with MySQL cluster

username_clean is a cleaned up version (spaces, duplicate chars, lowercase, etc.) - it is needed and can not be replicated by SQL or easily in PHP (we have a function to achive this). This field also makes sure the username is unique. As of the varchar(255) - sure, some could be trimmed down, but no...

Re: phpBB 3.2 Discussion

At Londonvasion we (the dev team) presented our plans regarding 3.2 - not only for the crowd there, but also for those later watching the videos. I intend to post a blog post once the video is out to recap this presentation - but i doubt i will post an announcement with a milestone list. I may add t...

Re: Template procedures

To make it quite clear: i won't support adding every single "cool" thing just because it is able to be added. I only will support adding new features to the template engine if they are really needed. I think at the moment too much work is put into the template engine - it should've stopped with impl...

Re: Template procedures

Personally i think without any real world usage it is pointless to add something like this to the template engine. Our strength comes from simplicity - do not try to go the Smarty route in implementing anything and everything and trying to mimick PHP in a template engine. I still want to hear real u...

Re: Template procedures

Slowly I'm starting to wonder why we don't just use PHP instead of our own template language? Not using PHP on the user-facing side does not only has benefits for controlling what is possible and not, but also for not putting too much code logic into templates (something i utterly hate in smarty), ...

Re: Plugin/Hook system for 3.2

Also, it appeared that your hooks system was designed to really only be able to be ran once in a function, which isn't really useful unless you are adding content which doesn't require any variables setup in the function or taking over the function. You are able to run more than one function... it ...

Re: Plugin/Hook system for 3.2

Really the main difference between what we have is that mine has an ACP section as well to allow board owners to add/remove/enable/disable and adjust the priority of plugins. Yes, this is a real difference. I think i never really thought about an ACP section for displaying all assigned hooks, becau...
