Re: Control panel module system

Whilst I would not discount any of the above as being potential problems, and I would agree that there are some areas that need blocking, I would ask is this actually a problem in the real world. By that I mean is there any data on users actually having these problems as I cannot recall any support ...

Re: Ideas. Standard Style Improvements.

In my opinion both pagination and "Load more" have their place and it is also dependant on where you are on the board and your role on the board. "Load more" for a topic to display posts is, in most cases, probably OK as generally, in my experience, you only go back/forward one or two pages - I am s...

Re: [ON HOLD] The Editor and its requirement

Could the title be changed to be "Style Editor" as at first seeing it I thought that it was a Text Editor and was about WYSIWYG

Re: [PHPBB3-15928] Remove support for downloading backups

There already is a "Can backup/restore database" Admin permission but that no affect if the user is a Founder - and that is what this change is aimed at preventing.

I would prefer a change where there can only be one Founder as that would get around all of these types of problems.

What is wrong with clicking the "Privacy" link at the bottom of the page?

Until now phpBB has had styles not themes is this changing? the theme is different than the software package So, by implication are you saying that the "new" style/theme (whatever you want to call it) will not be being packaged with phpBB and will be a sepa...

Chameleon Licence

I know I an good at asking silly questions so here is another one.

Why is Chameleon using the MIT licence when phpBB insists that the GPL-2.0-only licence is used? Is there about to be a change in licensing?
